Very nice place. Good service and atmosphere. The food was great. I would definitely recommend the bistecca. It seems that, as a rule, tourists in Tuscany have dinner a bit early. We arrived at 9pm and most of the clients didn't take too long to leave. Maybe it's a good tip for the ones without reservation. Well, if you visit... More

As we were staying in Rocca di Castagnoli, we thought we would try the attached restaurant. We loved it. Everything was perfect, from the food, to the staff and the ambience. The food was quite inventive, a nice change from the traditional pizza/pasta type restaurants. Highly recommended. We ate here 3 times over 5 days as it really was the... More

A rare find, situated a few km up the hills from Gaiole, this is adjoining a hotel. Booking usually required- always a good sign! Great ambience, met by owner who advises on the menu, dishes of the day, and great explanation of the ingredients. Main courses around €20, but with most ingredients locally sourced, and this well cooked, it is... More

Booked here based on Tripadvisor reviews and found this to be the very best food in all of our holiday around Italy (and we ate at some really good restaurants). The chef is a perfectionist who combines ingredients to maximise the flavours in his very inventive cooking. The freshly made bufalo cheese with garden-grown tomatoes were sublime and everything from... More

The food was just insane, the service impeccable. Highest quality meals with the freshest ingredients. Safe to say we were extremely pleased by the end of the meal and will definitely be returning!

This restaurant seems to focus on its pasta dishes, and we had a tasting of several choices to split with the table to start: a marscapone gnocchi-like pasta in a chianti sauce, a "ravioli of the day" with cheese and pear, and a home-made fresh spagatone (thick spaghetti) in a wild boar sauce. They were all good--but our socks weren't... More

Home made cheese , spinach carrot cheese soufflé and ravioli all were delicious . Large portions of steak , duck , chicken and lamb equally good . Maybe a sauce with the... More
