Stopped in for lunch while on a cycling trip. Indoor and outdoor seating. Choice wine list--several in our group tried the recent gold medal wine winner (Bolgheri Sassicaia 2015) and were not disappointed. Nice lunch menu--salads, pastas. Relaxed atmosphere. Good food.

We stopped here just browsing, and ended up stocking up with sliced meat, cheese and bread for our 3-day stay in Tuscany. Good food, but amazing service as well

It was as crowded here on a Sunday as you'd expect - the first place you see as you walk into Bolgheri, and one of the nicest. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table and then another 30-40 minutes for our food, but...More
