Great First Night Meal

We had arrived in Vellano in the evening and our hosts showed us Bristrot down below - we could see it's welcoming lights from our windows. We strolled down and we were welcomed into the cozy restaurant. Our meal was very, very good and service was warm & friendly.

Utterly friendly service, very reasonable prices and simple yet excellent dishes, including great pizza, home made pasta and signature antipasti. And if you've had too much wine and don't want...

This is one of the best kept secrets in northern Tuscany - the Bistrot in Vellano. With the breathtaking views aross the 'deici castella' or hilltop villages and wonderful food (their ravioli with fresh vegetables was the best food we'd had all holiday!). This restaurant is very reasonably priced and you get the best of what is fresh and local... More

Whilst on holiday in Tuscany we visited this friendly restaurant in Vellano on several evenings. Their tourist menu is such good value at 10 Euros which included Pasta, a main course and wine and coffee. Our son opted for the pizza and loved it. The owners were really friendly and even on night when we popped in for a drink... More

Very friendly family atmosphere, clean, good service and the food (although limited choices) was very nice. 2 main meals and a bottle of red wine was only 20 Euros. Within easy walking distance of casa verde. Dan & Joan Lehain
