A meal not to be missed!

We discovered this restaurant thanks to all of the great Trip Advisor reviews and we are so fortunate for that. We were staying near the center of Greve in Chianti and unfortunately the restaurants in the piazza were underwhelming and crowded at best. This was exactly what we were looking for! We... read more

We are in the stunning village of Montefioralle for a week and have been to this restaurant twice already . The food is exceptional - beautifully cooked . Fabulous beef dishes and truffles are a speciality here. The setting overlooking a wonderful Tuscan valley also exceptional . Please go if you can !

My favorite restaurant at Tuscany - specialized at Porcini and truffles :). Short ,but well prepared list of wines plus good staff and localization make this place good opportunity for dinner under open sky.

We booked dinner here and unfortunately it was raining the night we came and so we couldn't sit outside. That was okay though because the inside is cosy! We had a nice meal here although I wouldn't say it was fantastic. The starter of cheese and truffles was good. The main of pasta with lemon and cheese personally I didn't... More

It's right up there with the likes of Ristoro di Lamole for me. Amazing peaceful view, very special menu and incredibly well-presented, tasty food. Very impressed.

Unfortunately, we found this restaurant (through a recommendation) the last night of our stay in Greve. It is a must visit! Everything we had here was delicious: the burrata cheese with shaved truffle appetizer, the pappardelle al cinghiale, and the truffle ravioli with shaved truffle on top. Let us not forget that the view from the outdoor terrace is breathtaking... More

This place is amazing and if it was in Australia the waiters would need to wear a high vis vests as they cross the road to serve you in the dining area overlooking the most spectacular views of the neighbouring vineyard and villas. The food and wine is excellent, the service and hospitality compliments the whole experience. This place is... More

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
