The menu is based on authentic Tuscan dishes adapted by Emiliano (who has completed his sommelier work) and delivered with excellent presentation to your table .  An extensive wine list enables you to select the perfect vino(i) to accompany your menu selections.

Check for specials and for any seasonal items (e.g. Porcini or Cinghiale dishes) which may be available that day.

Some of my favorite selections are:

Fonduta con tartufo       (Cheese fondue with truffles)

Tris di zuppe Toscana    (Sampler of 3 soups)

Zuppe di porcini              (Porcini mushroom soup -
                                                             seasonal dish)

Ravioli con tartufo          (Ravioli with truffle sauce)

Farfalle ubriache      ("drunken butterflies" pasta
                                                          with wine sauce)

Strozzapreti alla noci      ("Choke the priest" pasta
                                                          with walnut sauce)

Bistecca (for 2)                  (Valdichiana beef steak)
