Our family had 2 wonderful dinners at this restaurant in July. We loved all of the 4 courses on both nights. Our children ate all 4 courses too and as a family we all agreed this was our favourite dining experience in all of Tuscany. The coffee is also spectacular during the day. The restaurant is in a gorgeous little... More

We visited this restaurant on a recommendation by a local friend. It is a set 4 course meal every night for 25 euro cash only. It was a great meal for a great price! The meal changes every night. The night we were there, we had a lovely soup, salad, pasta with a meat sauce and a beef and lamb... More

All you get at this charming little Osteria is great home cooking, honest friendly service and a meal that won't empty your wallet. And they have a great wine list at reasonable prices. If you are staying at Castello di Casole, this is a great diversion for dinner. It's really close. They only take cash but there is an ATM... More

It was the only restaurant opened the night I was in Casole so I didn't have much choice. The owner told me there was only a set menu (didn't know the price). So even if I prefer vegetarian food i decided to have dinner here. The menu started with a typical Tuscan soup, nice but a bit cold. Then the... More

Well cooked fresh food and service with humour is what marks out this restaurant as one of our favourites. We keep on returning and we are never disappointed as the non-existent dinner menu changes daily, depending on what is fresh, so you don't know what you are going to eat until it arrives. It's always good and innovative.

They serve typical Tuscan dishes and have a fixed tasting menu for EUR 25. But as we were not that hungry, we only asked for one course which was not problem at all. I had a soup and my husband had pasta - both excellent. Also, they have an excellent choices of wine (they are also a winery) - we... More

We went here at first because they have free WiFi. We decided while there the first time to have lunch. WOW.. what a good decision that was. The food and wine were outstanding. Great tables outside on the main street of this tiny village. Service was excellent and cheerful. The prices were very reasonable. We returned many times to use... More

we had dinner here on Sept 27th for my wife's 50th birthday and it was absolutely fantastic. We had a set menu which had been organised as a surprise so we didn't know what to expect but there was no need to worry as everything was superb. We will certainly eat here next time we are in Tuscany. If you... More

Unfortunately, did not eat a full meal there - but it was a great place to relax with a double espresso. The wine selection is very good- we bought a half case and enjoyed every selection. Management was very friendly and we will definitely come back on our next trip to Tuscany
