We found this place off the beaten path near the Duomo. We were apprehensive at first, but HOLD THE PHONE, this place is great! We had the chef special appetizer of fried dough with a creamy cheese and awesome Prosciutto. When we first saw the pricing, we thought the food would be just okay, but the risotto and the tortellini were absolutely spectacular. They had great prices (4.00 Euro for a .25 liter of red wine which is very inexpensive and local from Tuscany). They had bottles to buy and displayed very nicely. The best part about the meal was the singing owner (Gigi himself) who was constantly singing a verse along with the ambience music. It made us feel as though we had found a local spot rather than a tourist trap. The bread was a bit bland, but honestly - we were fine with that since the food was so excellent. Cheese tortellini with tomato sauce was 7 Euro, Risotto with Zucchini and Shrimp was 9 Euro. While the food was excellent, save desert for the local gelato shops since there is no desert menu other than a scarce verbal dessert menu. Filets looked excellent coming out of the kitchen and were only 17 Euro. Would recommend for the traveller trying to find the authentic local food and an opera by the lovely owner, Gigi!

Great food, great value. Very Italian. Proprietor sings with great enthusiasm. Noisy, but a great lunch stop. Recommended! GooglePlace - August 2017
