Good place for lunch

We were here in april. A lot of tourists, no local people. But the food was ok, not special. A good price against the other restaurants. I will advise you the daily dishes. Inside a cosy place. Good vino de la casa.

Location is good, can't miss on the main square. Typical area menu offerings but nothing special. I would suggest la Terrazza across the square for a far superior meal. Menu items vary little across the area but la Terrazza' s execution far surpasses Il Portico's. (Go upstairs for the lovely dining room with a bird's eye view of the Piazza!)

We had a nice lunch at Ristorante Il Portico in Greve. The food was good, nothing special, but good. Service was satisfactory. Keep in mind that this is not fine dining but OK for a lunch.

I'm not one to write a negative review unless something is VERY low par. We are in Chianti 2-3 times a year and have dined at many places and this is the first time I felt that I needed to express that this place was extremely disappointing and the food was overtly - BAD. We loved the quaint look (typical)... More

We saw the Tripadvisor sticker on the entrance door and decided to try this restaurant. We had 2 mixed salad as starter and followed by tortellini of stone bass in langustines and crab sauce and pasta with sausages and black truffles. They are all very delicious. Staff are very friendly. I would recommend this restaurant to you.

Myself and my girlfriend had a lovely evening meal here. A good pointer is that all menus are also in English. The waitress on the evening was very knowledgable and willing to help with any translations if needed and a good eye for local wines to compliment the meals. The food was of a good standard and well presented. If... More

This unassuming little hole in the wall of a restaurant serves up some pretty impressive down home Italian cooking. I had a simple veal steak served with rosemary potatoes, my wife had the papardelle with chingale. Both dishes were perfectly prepared and very tasty when served with a very reasonably priced local Chianti Classico. The anti pasti plate we had... More

The food was outstanding - an appetizer of pecorino cheese, pears and greens followed by a dish if wild boar ragu and a spinach ravioli covered with bits of pumpkin and shaved pecorino cheese topped off with a bottle of Chianti's finest. Voila, all in all the perfect way to end our last night in Tuscany

This is not one of those 'gourmet' high priced ristorantes on the piazza in Greve, but it is good. The lasagna with bechamel is very good, but not always on the menu. You can get wine by the carafe which is a good deal if you don't have somewhere to take the remains of the bottle with you. The service... More
