Wonderful local food

Spending a week in Cetona recently we kept going back to Nilo's, unable to resist trying everything on the menu we'd wanted to order the time before, and nothing disappointed (the beef carpaccio was particularly good and made the cut twice)! The staff were also very friendly and helpful, making... read more

The staff were also very friendly and helpful, making some great wine recommendations to suit the meal.

After nearly two years another review because we wish to congratulate Nilo and his son Cristiano for the very enjoyable restaurant they run on main square in Cetona. Outdoor terrace is a must during late spring and summer, but dining room is also elegant and charming. Tuscan menu is always done at perfection. Traditional pici all'aglione, home made pasta with...

We came to osteria vecchia da nilo the week of 16 May 2015 while we were in Cetona for our wedding with family. After our first visit here, we couldn't stop talking about how wonderful everything was all week, and we had to go back in our last night in town! We had a group of 13, with gluten and... More

We stopped to have a look round the town, attracted by the market in Piazza Garibaldi, and popped into the restaurant for a light one-course lunch. Service was good, food and wine delicious and reasonable value. Can't say fairer than that!

For lunch my wife and I visited Cetona, a very nice and authentic town. We experienced lunch at Da Nilo, so much better than the restaurants in Montepulciano!! Upon our arrival all tables were full. We had to wait 10 minutes, but were seated for the time being and got prosecco to spend the time. Super! When we got our... More

Best meal during our holiday in Val d'Orcia. This one stands out from the crowd and leaves all the other (very moderate) restaurants far behind. Had the homemade carbonara with asperges. Fresh and very tasteful dish. I do recommend this place.

With several recognition stickers at the door, that they trutly deserved! We stop for a great lunch and service. Reasonably priced. Pasta was very good, also the lamb chops and the veal, both served with mashed potatoes...included! No extra for contorno! Proper service. Good value. Highly recommended! The outside terrace was full for lunch on a Wednesday....
