We have very high standards when it comes to excellent food, and this was easily one of the top two meals of our entire trip to Italy (maybe of our entire lives!). We had just left the Montefioralle Winery about a ten minute walk away from the restaurant, where we had a fantastic tour of the vineyard and sampled some... More

The address might mislead you finding this place as the location is not Greve in Chianti but Montefioralle - which admittedly is only a few minutes’ drive by car away. But this drive will take you into the Tuscan hillside and into the medieval Borgo of Montefioralle where this wonderful restaurant is to be found. Notably on their terrace overlooking... More

Staying in montefiorelle so this could be considered a long walk of 100m or so. Service very personable and the food fantastic and affordable. Good choice of interesting dishes and overdosed both evenings on truffle based dishes. Nice touch with Nona cooking and singing in the kitchen. Both evenings finished with a grappa/ limoncello. Pleasant aspect and a nice breeze.... More

We were on holidays in Greve in Chianti and decided to walk up the hill to the beautiful little town of Montefioralle. We discovered the restaurant and stayed for lunch. I had a ricotta and spinach ravioli with a walnut cream dressing, it was delicious. The others enjoyed their meal also. Throughly recommend

Originally intended to go to a restaurant further up the road which was fully booked, but extremely happy we ended up here instead! The staff are lovely, very knowledgable, and the setting is quintessential Italian! The truffle pasta is insanely tasty, and the house red wine is one of the best I had on our trip. Highly recommend this little... More

The best food in Italy to date. Situated on the quaint pebbled road into Montofiorelli, perched high on a hill overlooking the Tuscan hills, the vista is just the beginning to an awesome experience. We started with the antipasta and I had the pasta with truffles and pork sausage (winner). The service was second to none with the mum (chef)... More

If you happen to be in Greve in Chianti, the capital of the famous wine region, than make a little walk to the historic village of Montefioralle. On your way to this village, which is rewarded one most beautiful villages in Tuscany, you pass this small restaurant run by Eleonora Abbarchini. They serve original local dishes for lunch and dinner... More
