Typical tuscan cuisine
Eravamo in due. Volevamo una pizza. Ci siamo fatti contagiare dalle recensioni super positive ma di positivo câera soltanto la cordialitÃ della cameriera. Lâarredo vecchio, di cattivo gusto, la tv impostata su Rai uno a tutto volume. I paesani che fissavano la tv invece di parlarsi. Prezzo in linea, ma la pizza, per nostro gusto, non era per niente buona. Sembrava una surgelata anche se effettivamente non lo era.

What can I say, where can I start? That is what I've said every visit when the fabulous meals have had the table groaning under their weight.Bring an appetite: servings are indeed generous - an understatement - and a beautiful expression of the food typical to the Amiata region. The produce is fresh, local where possible and makes the most of what the season has to offer (porcini mushrooms and chestnuts in October, local prosciutto and cheeses).There is also a great local wine selection (how could there not be in Southern Tuscany?) and the staff have sound knowledge in the wines themselves. The service itself is perfect; the staff are professional, friendly and warm.I've dined in the restaurant twice, both in autumn and winter, and ambience of the dining room, while spacious and light, is also cosy and I didn't feel like I had to whisper. In winter this would be the perfect place to relax for lunch after a morning of skiing (and working up an appetite to tackle those grand portions!). There is a great view of the ski run, the forest and the summit of Monte Amiata. In summer, this view is just spectacular. Such an unspoilt place!It goes without saying that I will be back.

Here we have a real dichotomy for the owner, Roberto. He is a passionate restaurateur and his dining room, staff and chefs all produce some wonderful fare from mainly local ingredients. We wonder though, whether he is really as passionate about having guests to stay in his hotel? We were on a walking holiday with half board arrangements and had an excellent meal with Roberto looking after us throughout. The rooms we had been booked by the travel company had been given to others, instead we were driven 5kms down the hill to "apartments" in a sculpture park that is managed by Roberto (we understand). These apartments are large but not luxurious by any means and we were totally reliant on Roberto's staff to transport us up and down the hill for dinner and after breakfast in the park cafe, something about which they (and we) had not been briefed. So, in summary, a great restaurant in the countryside but probably not a hotel to recommend unless Roberto decides to market it as such. Even the hotel sign has gone from outside, so we assume he is concentrating on his restaurant.
