Description: The bistro of my dreams is the little tiny restaurant; it’s the cute shop where you can go for a coffee or a glass of wine. It’s a place where you can eat the traditional Italian dish, sip a good wine and meet your people. It’s a place where you can chat while eating spaghetti, while learning secrets, sipping a “brunello”, or a grappa while listening to music or reading a book. Where love gets done and undone. And coffee. Where you’re early and it gets late. Here you are in my home. You are my guests and friends among friends. Here is my piano and my guitar, my books, my music; here’s the best recipe my mom gave me, and some biscotti and my grandpa’s Vinsanto wine.

We have visited this restaurant during a weekend in October. We have enjoyed possibility to eat outside, as the tables has been also available outside at the square. The food and wine were excellent, the ambiance of this place was unique and the service was extra efficient and super nice. We definitely recommend this place!

Great informal atmosphere and brilliant food! Not a budget option but then we did have some quite pricey (and v good) wine (and then some more). We did the whole 38 course Italian thing, probably didn't need the starter AND the pasta course bu they were all lovely. My calamari was particularly good as a main course but all the... More

Gorgeous restaurant found through TripAdvisor. Il Bistrot is well located and Piazza Gambacorti is so lovely. I am sure as hell this was the best food I've tried during my trip in Tuscany. Fresh ingredients always matter, and with the addition of a good wine you feel like in paradise. This restaurant offers superb meals. Pasta dishes are so interesting... More

This restaurant is tucked away in a lovely square bustling with locals at night. The restaurant looked nice inside but eating outside was a great experience. In the evening the restaurant offers aperitivo (free snacks) with your drinks which is a good way to start your meal. We opted for pasta as our main meal because the range of pasta... More

Everything was just superb. We got great advisory about wines from the waitress. As well as about the choice of meals. Freindly and direct people working there. You can at once feel welcome like by very good friends.

My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant, after reading tripadvisor reviews. We could say it's a good bistro! The food is good and so is the wine. My husband had papardele with meat sauce and it was delicious. I hada spaghetti with pitu (seafood) and it was just fine (a little tasteless). The service was really slow. But,... More

We were travelling in Italy for 10 days and this was by far the best meal we had. The cacio e pepe (made with an exquisite pici and pear undertones) was heavenly, honestly the best pasta we had in Italy. and we had a lot. Mozzarella starter was also very high quality bufala stuff.
