We plan to return here when we next visit the area in summer 2014, it was spring when we last had the opportunity and we dined here 3 times in a week at lunchtime, to make the most of the location. Sunday lunch is marvellous - lots if Italian kids sat at a table separate to their parents all very... More

We ate here during a recent trip to Tuscany. We loved the food. Its hard not to in Tuscany. It is situated outside of the town in an older home. The owners husband and wife do a great job and were very personable. I had a fried rabbit and chicken dinner which was very good. Would definitely recommend it.

If you travel to the Greve area, do yourself a favor and drive the 8 kilometers into the countryside to visit this restaurant. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Stephano and Patrizia make sure that all their customers are highly satisfied. Try the risotto with pear and cheese for a wonderful mouthful of taste.

My first indications that this would be "special" was when I walked in to make a reservation and found the place packed with locals at Lunch time. We had three meals here during our stay, one in the evening and two at lunch time. The staff were GENUINELY welcoming and the food was simply gorgeous. We sampled most of the... More

This was a truly fabulous Tuscan culinary experience. Every choice was a delight and the service was exceptional.I agree with the other reviews on two counts.it is worth the drive and the Bisteca ala Florintina is not to be missed for the carnivores.....but you must be hungry!! Stefano is a superb host and went purified way to help us.

Although you have to drive a bit from city center, it is well worth it! Wonderful service, great atmosphere, and overall a wonderful experience for us. We had some of the BEST, fresh and homemade, food within a ten to fifteen minute wait. Family friendly. Would definitely recommend it to anyone driving through the area.

Stefano the owner is one of the nicest people you'll meet in Toscana, he would gladly walk you through the art of creating the write dinner menu. Don't miss the T-bone and pork ribs, as well as the homemade pasta. House wines are ridiculous.

We arrived very late and they waited us and worked one hour more after their closure time. We liked the ribollita (traditional Tuscan soup with bread and vegetables), the famous steak (bistecca fiorentina) and before all the delicious grilled porcini (mushrooms). The list of wines is enaugh big and for every pocket. We paid about 45 Euro per person, not... More

Been there on a quiet and sunny weekday for lunch. The locanda is located at about a 40' ride from Flordnce and a GPS must be useful to get there. With the sunny weather we decided to sit at the veranda which faces a quiet green valley. Ordered an antipasto "un pó di tutto', a primo piatto (highly recommend you... More
