This was one of the two or three best meals of my life. For the budget-conscious, go to the trattoria, not the ristorante - same menu, same chef, and much more traditional decor for about a third of the price!
This is Tuscan food at its finest. Go to experience true Tuscan cooking and a wonderfully friendly staff. They fell all over us when we told them we were on our honeymoon!

This was to be our big splurge night for dinner, and we had asked our hotel concierge to make reservations for us months in advance, but when we got there they sat us at what they called a "social table" for 6 and wouldn't put us someplace else after we requested.
All the dinner entrees are price fixed at about $30 each, and unfortunately, none of them appealed to me (which never happened to me before!) so I told the waitress I would just have 2 first courses (the pasta-soup course), but she wouldn't let me. They basically made me order something I didn't want, and when it came it was dried out and inedible.
Instead of apologizing and offering to get me something else, the owner came over without a word and dropped off a meatball on a plate for me to eat. Just one meatball on a big plate-no kidding.
Anyway, would you believe they charged us for my meal?
Don't waste your time or your money on this arrogant place, so many fabulous places to eat in this city!
