A little family owned restaurant between Greve & Dudda in Chianti. The owner, Stefano, and his wife prepare and serve excellent meals in a quaint little home just off the road. It is obvious that Stefano takes a great deal of pride in the food that he prepares and serves. Our party of 9 got (seemingly) chastised for having a... More

We visited this restaurant twice while staying near by. It had a relaxed friendly atmosphere . The food was delicious typical Tuscan fare. Reasonably priced. Our only problem was there was an old card in our villa so we went to their location 3 years ago initially !

Nobody is more passionate and hard working than the owners of this restaurant. It is also worth stopping at Tenuta di Riseccoli on the way to "il Borgo Antico" for a pre-dinner wine tasting.

Probably our most memorable meal in Italy. We were there during porcini season and I had the porcini appetizer which was a huge platter of thin sliced raw porcini with salt and olive oil. Simple preparation but one of the most delicious dishes I have ever had. Also had the wild boar pasta which was delicious. The atmosphere seemed very... More

I came here whilst working in Italy for 6 weeks and this has to be my favourite dining experience. The fiorentina was stunning, the hosts were fantastic and whilst the place did look a little bit odd on first arrival, what a wonderful place to enjoy the best steak in Florence.

A short and most worthwhile drive from the picturesque village of Greve in Chianti, this is a must. We have been visiting this area for a dozen years or more and our visits to Stefano and Patrizia at Il Borgo Antico are always a highlight. The address may have changed a couple of years ago, but the quality of the... More

We visited twice while staying in Greve the first on a sunny day for lunch, the steak was great but the real treat was the panacotta and tiramisu were the bomb. Whilst all the meals were very nice the second visit saw Stefano and his wife with a full house and under a little more pressure.

During our recent trip we had two dinners at the Borgo Antico -- both times we enjoyed Stefano's hospitality and great local cuisine. Do not miss out on the Arista con fagiole or the excellent risotto with sweet gorgonzola.... Best part of course is to stay next door in villa Carla and just walk over!
