Maga Magò is a very good restaurant, owned directed by Luca Percorini.


High quality products, excellent and well cooked dishes, generous portion and nice presentation.
Real traditional Italian and Tuscany dishes. Quite a large menu and plats du jour, offering from pasta alla carbonara, in this season, porcini mushrooms tagliolini spaghettini cacio and pepe, mixed boiled meats with sauces, fried porcini mushrooms, artichokes and brain, meatballs with mayonnaise, pigeons, saltred black cabbage, and many others dishes. The dessert is amazing: there is a large buffet offering a rich selection of different cakes (torta dell nonna, cheese cake, hand-made panforte, beignets, maritozzi with cream, and more …. dried fruits, liquor and coffes.


The wine menu is very original and offers a selection of uncommon Italian and French wines’ labels.

All the dishes are accurately thought and prepared. The restaurant is nicely decorated in a romantic country style. Candles create a very warm atmosphere.

It is the kind of restaurant I would like to find all over the world to eat good local food and enjoy a nice place mainly attended by local people.
