The food here was sublime. We didn't order off the menu but instead had Giancarlo bring out what he thought best. The most memorable part was the salmon, fresh and high quality, sliced very thin and full of flavor. We were there in the winter and the fire going in the hearth along the side of the room filled the... More

I have traveled to Italy many times and the February 2014 trip was my 50th. As a travel specialist of Italy, I have the opportunity to experience many restaurants in Italy and Tuscany in particular. Giancarlo provide a fantastic dining experience by creating dishes using the artistry skills developed over decades. This ristorante is one of those that you can... More

Lo Steccheto is everything a restaurant experience should be. The food, atmosphere, owner/chef, service are all first class. It is simply an amazing and personal experience. From the time you step in and stroll into the attached bottega for prosecco, salame, cheese, etc., to the moment you savor the multi course meal (no menu), you will realize this is an... More

After a mad dash across the Tuscan countyside, along winding, narrow roads and not particularly good signage we arrived at Lo Steccheto for lunch. The hosts were very welcoming and understanding of the limited time 2 of us had to for eating (because of our late arrival and another appointment later in the afternoon we had to drive to). You...

Fancy to see something differnt? Lo Stecchetto is a lovely place located in Val di Chiana - Tuscany. The atmosphere is unique: a cosy place full of memories collected by the owner Giancarlo. Food is very good and with reasonable price. You can also buy some local speciality (truffle oil.....). A different way to experience Tuscany food.

Without a doubt one of the most special culinary evenings in Tuscany. Combine fresh but innovative Tuscan cuisine depending upon the season, intimate and eye-teasing surroundings created by the owner Giancaro, and the warm family ambiance, and you have the makings of a memorable evening. Dining outside in the gardens, inside in several main dining rooms, or in the small... More

Just read all the other wonderful reviews as they correctly create the visual. What we'd like to add is our impression of the sincere warmth and charm of the hosts . . . like family. The ambiance was unique, fun and comfortable. Food was creative, delicious and prepared expertly. You will love the experience and consider owner Giancarlo, wife Luana,... More

Lo Steccheto is a beautiful rambling farmhouse about 30 minutes from Cortona. The meal we had there was one of the best we have ever had in a restaurant. From the moment we arrived, we realised we were in for an amazing experience. We were welcomed by a glass of prosecco while examining the local specialties on sale in their... More

Rarely do you go to a resturant and enjoy everything you eat. We went to Lo Steccheto for a Sunday lunch. From the moment we walked in the door and were greeted with a glass of prosecco and an assortment of salumi and cheeses, we knew we were in for a treat! Six courses later, with an incredible amount of... More
