Great cuisine, friendly service

A local guy from San Donato recommended this restaurant. Very simple, tables set with cheap cutlery and paper napkins which is surprising in Italy where you don't find that even in the simple restaurants. But what's more important, the food is great and the service is very friendly. They have no... read more

We went to Uscio last year and enjoyed it, This year the food is even better. Reminds of the way Osteria Le Panzanelle (Lucarell) used to be and is not anymore.

As we approached the restaurant just as they opened we heard a woman yelling in anger. My wife said "perhaps we should go somewhere else." We didn't. Big mistake. With no written menu we ordered two first courses from the woman who had been yelling. She had no problem understanding our order. The second course offerings were mixed grill or... More

Quality and friendly welcome maintained. Pasta still one of the best locally and this time I did not let the family and friends beat me to the strudel. We will be back.

This place is not to be missed! My husband and I stumbled upon it while lost one night...best mistake we have ever made! All of the pasta is fresh and delicious! There is no menu...they just read you the specials each night. Everything we ordered was absolutely incredible, and the staff was fantastic!! We went there two of our four... More

We were recommended this place by Donatello in Florence. So, staying in Greve we found it. A little out of the way perhaps but so worth it. The food is real home cooking and it was the best food of our holiday. Closed Wednesdays.

Great pasta and salads! Homemade pasta that my wife and I loved! You can taste the freshness. No secondi and limited english from the wait staff but this was not an issue. Nothing fancy but a great, casual dinning experience.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. It has an excellent selection of Italian pasta dishes, great wine list and friendly service. Worth a trip if you are staying anywhere nearby - Panzano, Castellina, Radda etc...

Uscio e Bottega is a small restaurant/wine bar in Sicelle, 10 km from Castellina in Chianti. The nearest village is S.Donato in Poggio (3 km). This spot is “road side” on Strada 76 and easy to miss as you round a sharp corner and pass through a rural community of 3-4 buildings. The outdoor, covered patio is small but a... More

My husband and I recently returned home from Tuscany, Italy. We were fortunate to have had, Uscio e Bottega recommended to us. Patricia and Patrick are a husband and wife team, who serve a variety of freshly prepared pasta dishes, salads and yummy desserts. The portions are large and reasonably priced. They also offer a variety of wines from their... More
