Antico Borgo Ristorante in Iano Tuscany

Very pleasant dining environment in a barrel vaulted main dining room. Good and helpful staff that were able to answer questions and provide guidance about dining choices. We came back a couple of nights later for pizza.

They have a large menu, maybe too many items to do them well. The pizza was OK. Nothing special. The server kept forgetting our table and tables seated after us had drinks and food well before us...and we were hungry after a long day of travel. Although close to our accommodation, we had no interest in returning.

We ate here twice during our week in Iano. The food was lovely and the sunset was breath-taking. It was excellent value.

The (newly) extended balcony on which the main restaurant sits is stunning. To dine with that view over the valley is simply wonderful. Dealing with our group (9 for the first week and 11 for the second) over 4 evenings is not for the faint hearted yet Antico Borgo managed with, more or less, aplomb. Only on one evening was... More

Both food and service were average at best. Staff didn't seem to be very interested in their job, perhaps we caught them at the end of a busy day in high season.

Awful experience. Dishes were not good, not fresh ( or too fresh, when you put a carpaccio a couple of hours in the fridge...) It's camping food, with a foreign population eating pizza with French fries.

We have already made a report to Tripadvisor about the fact that everytime someone stays in THAT holiday home managed from the other restaurant, they obtain a wonderful recomandation (for holiday home and for the restaurant) and we receive a bad review. In any case, we think to remember you, and we have discussed so long about the fact that,... More

This is our local restaurant, so we have visited on numerous occasions in the summer and the spring. As ever the food is very good with an excellent selection. The staff are welcoming and helpful, and the owners very friendly. There were some staff there this year who were working last year, and they were very good and efficient. The... More

Since moving to montaione a few years back I have wanted to try this restaurant and took this opportunity while my family were over visiting. After reading lots of positive reviews I thought we were guaranteed to be in for a treat. SO WRONG! Starters were average at best but luckily they gave us 30-40 minutes after the starters to...

Dear Mr. "Smalldug", we are very sorry that you were disappointed just with my restaurant in the area of Montaione.

The pizzas and pasta are hands down some of the best I've tasted across many a restaurant table. Delicious! Fantastic flavours and ingredients. This is not a fancy place — but a relaxed, family friendly, true Italian showcase of hearty ingredients, robust flavours and great cooking. All delivered at unreal value. Service could be better, but the view from the... More
