Very delicious

Delicious and fresh food. Service is excellent. We ate there 3-4 times as we stayed at hotel Sovestro. Once we received a piece of chicken that was kind of ray but it got fixed professionally. We are satisfied.

However, we all found that what they did they did really well. The pate I had was very good and the entrecôte... More

We ate here our first night in Tuscany, after driving from Milan to stay in this hotel. We tried the chingale - wild boar, a regional specialty, which seemed to be slow cooked and very tender. Accompanied by bread and wine, both good, it was a feast.

Outstanding food, friendly and pleasant service, and reasonable prices. The menu is highly varied, featuring fresh local cheeses, produce and meats ("chingale" is Italian for "wild boar"). Dinner for two, consisting of gourmet creations and a superb bottle of wine, averaged about 80 Euro total. I guarantee you will not find a meal this good in the U.S. for twice... More

Service and Food were excellent. The restaurant is family owned and part of the Hotel Sovestro. The owner is a retired race car driver and his many trophy's are displayed in the gym of the hotel. I asked if he would be able to prepare rabbit - which wasn't on the menu and he said that would be no problem,... More

Enjoyed our meal here this evening, the service was good and the food unpretentious & delicious. The bread basket featured soft white bread and some very moreish focaccia & we ordered some local Chianti & mineral water to accompany our meal. We started with some gnocchi and a bowl of riboletta, a very satisfying vegetable soup thickened with bread crumbs... More
