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.

Restaurant a bit off the FI-PI-LI road with nice garden. The waitresses speak good English (rare in Toscany), menu is nice and food is served fast. The ingredients are very fresh and the menu is just right says, enough to choose from but not overwhelming. The plates are big - do not over-order starters- you will not be able to... More

We visited this restaurant in August 2013, it was simply great. The dishes were rich and delicious. the setting was super, the price was a bargain compared to what we have seen in other places in Italy. The host (leandro) made us feel very welcome. It felt like we were at a family dinner. Very nice people.
