Good food and really friendly people

Lovely little cafe and restaurant serving excellent little cakes with really friendly staff. The food is good and the location in the piazza of Gaiole which is lovely is great to sit and watch local life. Especially good after a bike or scooter ride from Tuscany scooter hire also in the piazza.

We really liked it here - had a nice salat and some great pizzas. Also make perfect Aperol Spritz:-) Staff was so friendly - really nice place and atmosphere (much better than the other pizzaria in town - the one with the big balcony).

Headed to Lo Sfizio Di Bianchi one evening whilst staying in Gaiole in Chianti for dinner. Me and my fiance both enjoyed two courses with a bottle of house red wine. The service was good and the food was fresh and tasty. The Tagliata rucola e grana (Sliced grilled sirloin steak with rucola and Parmesan flakes) was particularly good. It... More

Like the other reviews, the sit-down service for us was not great. It took quite a while for anyone to even come over and take our order, and we were ignored while others seated next to us were served. The food we ordered was really good and reasonably priced though. Thankfully their gelato is absolutely delicious! They have only a... More

The food is very good here – I have eaten here several times over the last two years and it is very consistent with nothing at all to complain about. Central location in what is only quite a small town and very good service. Excellent ice creams.

Stopped here for a nice cream. Good selection of flavours. The chocolate was particularly great. A friendly place with free wifi as a bonus.

Had a long walk to town and were a little taken aback by how quiet it was on a Saturday afternoon. This seemed to be the only place with a bit of life about it so a beeline was made for some lunch. After eating a lot of carbs in the preceding days, a fresh chicken salad hit the spot... More

Went here Saturday afternoon. There is not a lot to choose from in town and some place we're closed. We both had the chicken salad for €10 which was excellent. There were a lot of people (locals I think) having pizza. The pizzas looked amazing unlike the rubbish I saw I Florence. If I have time I pop back for... More
