Fantastic!

This restaurant is a wonderful oasis in the middle of nowhere, still not far from Greve in Chianti by car.

Be prepared for some dirt roads and apply a certain perseverance in getting there -you will be rewarded! Tuscan scenery at its best for a lazy lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The place is primarily a hotel, so finding the restaurant is not obvious. Once there, one finds the Italian kitchen at its best! We had great pasta and desert,... More

We did our research and saw the reviews for Villa Bordoni were extremely good, some rating it as the best restaurant in the region, so decided to book. My wife and I were on our honeymoon and wanted something special and this fantastic restaurant did not disappoint! You will find this wonderful place at the end of a long dirt... More

Maybe the service, and food would be better if we had stayed there, but we went for dinner. The portions were extremely small, and my husbands pea soup tasted like Gerber's. Service was poor, and it was obvious the manager was more concerned about the table next to ours as he was extremely attentive to their over priced wine. We... More

It was an experience. The restaurant/inn is located beyond world's end. Getting there is an endurance test. Once there you are seated in a garden with absolute silence all around. Service excellent. The food - frankly we were enjoying the ambiente not paying attention to the food. Worth getting out of the way.

Great food, but so many mosquitos in the restaurant! I hate writing less than stellar reviews, but there were so many mosquitos in the resturant - one ended up in my wine glass. The food and service were great. It was a bit pricier than it should have been and the views were different than they looked on the website.... More

A beautiful villa- stayed in the Lemon Room which was quiet and serene. Staff offers suggestions of places to visit-don't miss nearby Panzano village and the mad butcher! Also if you have a car visit Old Grieve nearby. Magical. The restaurant at the villa is very good-Florentine steak for two is amazing even for this 'rarely eats meat" flexitarian. And... More

The food preparation is very good. The menu is very limited especially if you need to dine there more than twice.

We had a wonderful dinner at Villa Bordoni in early May. The restaurant is located high on the hillside and although it is not the easiest to locate, it was certainly worth the effort. The restaurant and decor were just perfect for a relaxing evening with friends, and the food was some of the best we have eaten in Tuscany.... More
