We organised lunch on the patio overlooking the Tuscan countryside. Chose the degustation menu. Absolutely wonderful meal and wines included. Five courses and all lovely with great wine to accompany. Service was exceptional and after three hours we were finished. Beautiful view and highly recommended.
