Very good taster menu!

We were recommended this restaurant by our tour operator and were not disappointed. Situated in the small town which looks like it has been extensively gentrified over the years, the restaurant produces a different taster menu every day.

Excellent service, excellent food and wine selection out of this world! And to top it off a floor show (well, street show to be accurate!) by a fabulous jazz quartet. Cannot recommend enough.

Yesterday evening we decided to go out to Casole d'Elsa and find a place to eat. Strolling through the main road past the church we saw a terrace with green umbrellas. We could have dined inside but, since the weather was ok we choose stay outside. We picked a table and asked for the menu. Nope, said the friendly guy:... More

Having had a stressful day, we almost gave up on eating out, but we are so glad we didn't! We had planned to eat at another restaurant, but it was unexpectedly closed. As we walked along the central street in Casole d'Elsa, we saw Caffe Casolani. lots of couples were eating outside. I looked for the menu, but was told... More

What a great find. Great, authentic, local food. We were going to sit outside but as rain was imminent ended up inside and glad we were as ambience and opportunity to browse some serious wine choices were excellent. The restaurant extends quite far out the back so much bigger than it looks. Plenty of Italians eating there which is always... More

It is run by a family (Mama does all the cooking and we're told she shops daily for the fresh ingredients for the evening's meal)....every day is a new set menu....the food is amazing, fresh and...

Food is excellent, service is amazing. At first we were skeptical because they didn't give a choice of menu but turned out to be an interesting experience that we will never forget.
