A restaurant that has been dubbed "a gastronomic destination" by Italian food writers tells you it will be a good place to eat. Chef Daniele knows the province and the producers, and adheres to the Slow Food philosophy of using local products in regionally-inspired recipes. The ingredients are chosen with care and cooked with creativity to bring out the freshness and flavors to the fullest, "so that diners can enjoy the seasonal colors and flavors on their plates," as the chef says.

The prized local San Miniato white truffles are proudly used in many of the dishes, and all the plates are beautifully crafted and presented. This small restaurant is a good place for a special occasion meal during your trip.

It is located outside San Miniato, basically between San Miniato Basso and Ponte a Egola.

Open for dinner every evening except Mondays. Open for lunch only on Sundays and holidays. Closed Mondays.
