It is a little bit of drive out of town but the restaurant is beautiful (just a few minutes drive out though and more than worth it!) The service was very good with the staff able to speak good English, it is... More

We stayed for three weeks in Montopoli in June of 2015. We found Il Sottobosco via tripadvisor. Our first meal there was amazing. The owner and staff were wonderful and made the meal all the more enjoyable. We must have eaten here five or six times before we left for home. I miss it already.

Our experience at this restaurant was wonderful. We were 2 couples looking for some authentic Tuscan food and were not disappointed. The food was great the atmosphere was wonderful as were the gardens surrounding the restaurant. Charming jewel in a small Tuscan town. Fantastic pizza!!

We were returning to san ruffin resort after visiting Florence and stumbled upon this little gem of a restaurant. The staff spoke great English ( as us brits are so lazy speaking other languages .house red was fabulous and the mushroom risoto was absolutely glorious. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Spent a week in Tuscany and ate at many restaurants. Il Sottobosco was by far the best we visited. Excellent food, outstanding service and very reasonable prices. Friendly staff, especially Zara, made you feel at home.
