The village of Volpaia is lovely, and we enjoyed the experience of our meal at Bar Ucci very much. I found the cinghiale stew overly salty, which is why I only give it a rating of 4. Everything else about the place was wonderful. I think the meal we had at Osteria Volpaia was tastier, but it was also much... More

My group have been at Bar Ucci every day since we arrived in Volpaia. Morning coffee, afternoon snack & drinks on the patio and evening cocktails. It appears that everyone who crosses the threshold is family, or at least they are treated like family. A must visit.

Perfect! Must return to this village and to this bar. Pure tast without manire in a fantastic location. Egyszerűen tökéletes. Magávalragadó helyen egy maníroktól mentes hely, tiszta ízekkel.

On our all-day tour of the Chianti region with our guide (Katharine of SimplyFirenze, with whom we have worked in the past for an amazing day at the Amalfi Coast), we stopped in Volpaia, for an enjoyable lunch at Bar‘Ucci. We met the personable and enthusiastic owner Paola and her new puppy. After watching Paola and her guests faun over... More

This place is just amazing! The family who runs it is lovely and the food is so good. Big portions for a reasonable price and great wine... What more can you wish for?

I really rather hate to share this with anyone.... being so possessive of my favorite places in chianti. however, because i love paola and her family and have known them for almost 20 years, i will share. if you have never been to volpaia and relaxed on the patio of "bar ucci", you haven't experienced tuscany. that said, order anything...

My friend and I had a memorably good lunch at Bar Ucci. They were full when we arrived, but they made up an extra table for us on their charming patio. Our lunch was delicious and very reasonably priced. Volpaia is a charming, unspoiled hill town and Bar Ucci provides outdoor dining in the heart of it. I would recommend... More

This is very cheap and well cooked tuscan food. The wild boar stew is the best in Tuscany cooked from a tiny kitchen. A good selection of chianti wines with only a modest mark up completes the meal.

I love to stop at the top of the Valpaia hill and get a glass of good wine and a treat. But best of all are the family owners. So much bigger than life. They span the generations of ownership. At sundown the swallows blitz the chapel across the street catching their evening supper. Flowers bloom on he Valpaia walls.... More
