My wife and I went to Il Fornacino in early Oct. We had just arrived at the nearby Siena House from a day and a half of flights and airports. As we entered Luigi welcomed us with open arms and made some weary travellers feel at home. We started of with a lovely aperitif of tomato, basil and olive oil.... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal prepared perfectly with fresh ingredients by the chef Daniella, wife of the gregarious and gracious owner and host, Luigi. A charming spot!

We visited the restaurant twice during our stay in Bettolle. It is by far the best food, service and atmosphere restaurant we have been to. Luigi and his wife Daniella (the chef) not only welcomed us - but made us feel at home. Both have outstanding lovely personalities and have so much to offer. Their duck ragu was the best... More

Il Fornacino is something truly special. Not only is it the best restaurant I've been to in Tuscany, or Italy, but ever. It is located in the most unlikely location, and quite off the beaten track, but this is a just visit restaurant for anyone in the immediate surroundings or from miles around. August 2013 wold have been my fourth... More

We were recommended this restaurant by one of the owners of Siena House, and the restaurant owner, Luigi, was kind enough to remain open for us for a late afternoon lunch after driving for four hours to Tuscany. The food was fresh, delicious, and abundant, and topped off with an excellent tiramisu or panna cotta. The owner even insisted we... More

Go here if you want to eat some honest and tasty Italian food. The owners are passionate and very friendly. Plenty of choice and everything we ate was very tasty. The atmosphere was cosy, the prices are very good. We will come back when being around!

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend and he didn't steer us wrong. This is a husband and wife team, Luigi front of house and Daniela doing the cooking. The food was amazing and the service friendly and efficient. Don't let the meal end without the almond biscuits and vino sante ("health wine"). Dip the biscuits in the wine... More

I don't know where to begin in describing this restaurant. Without a doubt, it was THE best dining experience we had on our three week vacation in Italy. I knew we were in for a special evening when the proprieter, Luigi, noticed us driving by looking for parking and he ran out on the street to greet us and show... More
