Lovely local osteria, beautiful terrace, great food, local specialities ( we ordered a plate of mixed local appetisers to share and it was a really varied selection. About 60 E for 4 people including 2 massive shared plates of appetisers, 4 mains, 2 desserts. Do book in advance as very busy with locals (always a good sign).

Great meal, nice and friendly service at a very attractive price level - what more would you ask for? Pizzas are great and simple like "real" Italian pizzas and their steaks are really good. Simple dishes, the Italian way - "what you see, is what you get"

We ate three times at l'Antica Quercia during our stay in Chianti. It was amazing: sitting under the awning and watching the sunset over the valley whilst eating the most delectable food from local sources was an experience to savour. The proprietor, Cristina, and her staff were charming and Marco, the invisible chef, produced the most wonderful dishes to our... More

We regularly travel to san appiano for an evening meal and on visiting today we have discovered new owners and new staff here, unfortunately for us it was downhill from the start. We normally are greeted with a smile, a welcome and greeted as soon as we walk in. However it seemed no one knew who we where even though... More

The owner of the resort we stayed at recommend this hotel and made reservations for us. We had a little trouble finding this place but it was well worth it. We arrived at 7:30 pm to the restaurant..a little early for Italians! One of the main chef's, a lady, came out and spoke with us, had a menu already planned... More

We stayed nearby at the Fattoria Sant'Appiano in April, 2012. Lovely dining experience. Felt like on of the family. Steak Florentine was an other worldly experience. Only locals in the joint. Doesn't get much better.

The quality of the food was good but we had an unhappy experience here. One waiter tried very hard to help us BUT 1. A second waiter was very loud and distracted the other waiters (such as shouting across the seated customers to his colleagues). He thought himself very funny . 2 this waiter also did not take our concerns... More

We have visited Osteria L'Antica Quercia 6 times over the past 2 years and we have never been disappointed. In May 2003 We brought our wedding party here near the end of our trip, approx. 36 people, where we sat outside in the terrace with beautiful views and atmosphere. As we were a large group, we were happy to eat... More

We had dinner here on our recent trip to Tuscany. It was one of the most beautiful settings I've ever seen. The owner and servers were charming and accommodating, even taking a chef in our party into the kitchen to meet and speak with their chef. The tab was very inexpensive for all the delicious food (and wine) we consumed.... More
