We had the most amazing time and enjoyed high-quality food (as suggested by Paolo, the owner) at a very fair price. We would definitely visit this place again and can recommend it to anyone looking for great, local food in an authentic and nice atmosphere

Very lovely host. The dishes are very good. It serves typical local Tuscany food. The ravioli was excellent. The virsato was very good.

Our tour group staying nearby have been there twice now and have been blown away by the food, wine and the fabulous, gregarious, animated Paolo. He will have you in stitches - and the price is absolutely right! Sitting outside in the main street of Tavarnelle was a highlight (of many) of our stay in Tuscany. Absolutely brilliant - go there!

We went to Tuscany for my patents' 25th wedding anniversairy and were recommended to have lunch at this place. We had the most amazing time and enjoyed high-quality food (as suggested by Paolo, the owner) at a very fair price. We would definitely visit this place again and can recommend it to anyone looking for great, local food in an authentic and nice atmosphere. And finally: the ice coffee was AMAZING!! It was a dessert in itself.

Ferragosto is a very special day in Italy. It goes back a long way and typically is the beginning of vacation in Italy. And such a special day/night asks for a special event/meal.

This years ferragosto coincides with the Tuesday evening market and cafe degli amici had a special menu.

Imagine all wooden tables lined in the street at dusk. Everyone shows up (mostly locals) for the family celebration.

The main event (after the obligatory crostini and pasta) is what is called Grigliata Giuglio (or in plain english an abundant plate of meat prepared by Giuglio)

Porc, beef, tenderloin, fegatelli,... you name it and its on the plate. (No evening for vegans though).

Around midnight the evening is rounded up with some coffee (for the darealls) and liquor.

Great experience to enjoy the local life in un paese italiano.

Highly recommendable if you appreciate blending with locals. (Don't bother if you are rather snobby and posh)

Thanks Paolo for a great evening.
