It's a pleasant surprise to find such a tiny gem in place like Montevarchi. The dishes are definitely chosen among the traditional mix of Tuscan and Italian old favourites but they are prepared with a creative touch so much that you may think you are dining in a high cuisine restaurant. Chef Francesca makes a real effort in using only... More

We were lucky enough to have stumbled across this place really. We were in the area, it was dinner time so after a quick trip advisor search thought we'd try our luck. We were delighted with the experience from the moment we saw the front entrance and made our way in. The first thing that hits you is the interior... More

We stayed near Bucine again in August and visited Uvaspina again (twice). The menu had obviously changed since last year but nothing else had. The dishes were innovative and Francesca Lari once again showed total commitment and excitement about what is produced. Great staff and great food. A real gem - and not expensive. We are thinking of staying in... More

Montevalchi is not an obvious location in Tuscany, but I'm really glad we made it to uvaspina. The restaurant has an unpretentious and original ambience. The tasting menu consists 2 anti-pasti, 1 primi, 1 secondi and dessert for very reasonable price! Every course was cooked to perfection, utterly joyful! The chef couple who are also the owner of the restaurant... More

This restaurant in Montevarchi might look a bit posh and expensive from the outside but that is not the case. Had an amazing dinner experience here. Staff are very friendly and helpful and give an excellent service. Food is fresh and you can taste the effort put into it. Menu is also reasonable priced. I would definitely come back if... More

This is the third time we have eaten at UVASPINA on the cafe side, and every time it has been a great experience. A nice selection of well prepared food with the Tuscan/Puglian influence from the two owners, Francesca and Donato. My kids love the roast beef and potatoe puree and I try something different every time and are always... More

A young couple is managing this new restaurant with a lot of love..you can tell from the fresh brad just made, the delicious combinations of plates and the unusual selection of wines. It is a good start for this new spot in Valdarno very promising for the future..I suggest to do not exaggerate with garlic but it is just my... More

I recently visited Uvaspina while on a trip to Tuscany and was pleasantly surprised by the food and service at this restaurant. When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner of the restaurant who actually took the time to translate each item of the menu from Italian to English for us so that we could choose our dinners. Wow... More

After going to SPACE and checking up trip advisor, we went to this restaurant and was glad that they opened. The menu was simple and the waitress (joint owner / gf?) offered to translate the menu to us. They were flexible to create a pasta dish w salmon which was not available but the had the ingredients. We ordered an... More
