    The food was nice, as well as the service. Steak was a bit too raw after I asked for a medium well. Took forever for us to get the bill, and they didn't have much beer selection.

    We were warmly welcomed and asked whether we would like to sit inside or outside - we opted for inside , in case it cooled . We were shown how to access the menu via the QR code reader , and although we had some issues , our helpful waitress sorted things for us ! We were offered a glass of Prosecco and a polenta and pecorino bite - delicious . We both very much enjoyed our meal , the food , the quality , the service and the price were very good . Thank you

    This is a place to eat meat, period. Not a cheap one at that, I’ll admit, but nice quality cuts. Have been yesterday with family as a goodbye dinner before leaving Tuscany after a few days stay. We have been eating out for dinner since these few days and we have good comparison parameters which are unequivocally the usual you would expect: location, price, food quality and quantity, service. I was very underwhelmed with both location and service, especially the latter with a pungent perception of being unwelcome which lasted for the whole meal. The food (ie appetizers, pasta dishes and side dishes) were really not up to the standard we had become accustomed to in the week we spent in the area: they were simply not good for our taste… the only highlight has been the meat: a nice, juicy and well cooked super steak. Price: I am torn here. This single meal has been the most expensive one we have had during our stay, with servings not being to our liking, except for the meat. We have found better service, overall ambiance and food (including same great quality meat) at lower prices. Not enough competition in Montecatini? Standard level for the town? I don’t know, but it’s not a place I feel I would visit again.

    Great find, worth taking the car out of the hotel car park! You need to like meat, and if you do you'll be in your element. Everything (vegetables too) with a wonderful grilled flavour and service really helpful/friendly. Not expensive either, but don't forget that GOOD meat like this does cost. No car park, just go with flow and park opposite restaurant.

    This restaurant is delightful. The building itself is charming and the interior is very appealing. The food was exceptional as was the service.

    Like eating in my grandma's living room. Loved the interior. The service was great, very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious, 5 people who all had different things to eat. Baked potatoes side dish is a must!!

    The tartar was made in front of me personally and it was quite interesting but it tasted very bad. There was absolutely no truffle flavor for the extra 12 € truffle. As I did not like the tartar from the restaurant offered not to pay it but I refused. Waiting for a beer to be delivered for 15 minutes is not okay. The steak was delicious but for a small piece the price of 40 euros is too much. In the end, for the first time, I was disappointed with restaurant in Italy.

    We found the restaurant on tripadvisor and decided to celebrate our wedding anniverary there. It was brilliant to say the least. A paradise for steak lovers - „bistecca fiorentina“ is something you absolutely have to try when visiting Tuscany. Top quality meat, excellent service and very romantic ambience. We totally loved the restaurant and had the perfect evening. The price for a 2-person-menu was really okay, 70€ total for prosecco, wine, steak, side dishes, sweets and coffee is quite cheap. 100% recommendation!

    Small restaurant up in the hills with the best beef in the area. Suggested parking was on the street but there is a large parking lot 300 meters up the street.

    The ordered beef was not dry aged, was swimming in the blood. It was not filet and not medium-rare but hard. Nearly not to eat. Positive: good wines at a low price.
