My husband and I were looking for a typical Italian restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we stumbled accross this place after driving out of the town. We were greeted with a glass of champagne, offered an extensive and wonderful wine list (we had the house Chianti, only €12 & lovely) and excellent menu choice. The atmosphere was pleasent, staff...

We stumbled on this restaurant while looking around the village. We went back to it on at least 4 occasions in the month we stayed. Every time the food was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and their English was good enough for us to understand each other enough to order all courses including wine. We tried other restaurants in... More

Possibly the best Italian restaurant I have ever visited. The food is amazingly delicious and fresh, specially the pasta with tartufo. The fact that I had the great opportunity to dine on a table by the fireplace made my experience even warmer, in combination of course with the incredible service. Excellent variety of wines and the location of the restaurant... More

Ever go to a restaurant based on someone's recommendation, not sure what to expect and end up receiving some of the best homemade dishes you have ever had?? Then this is the place for you. We went on a Sunday afternoon in Mid-September and it was busy. We had a large group of 8 and were seated in the rear... More

My husband and I had a destination wedding in Tuscany in June. We had eaten at 'Il Battibecco' earlier in the year, and decided to host a welcome dinner for our wedding guests, who were coming from various parts of the world. We could not have been happier, both with the choice of menu and the hospitality which we received.... More

The restaurant is located close to Florence and definitely worth the drive. Being located outside a little village it is a tricky to find, yet you enjoy a stay at a spacious and quite restaurant. When you arrive (in the evening) you are surprised by the tasteful and elegant walkway to the restaurant. The restaurant has a nice Terrance to... More

We enjoyed a fabulous dinner at Bellavista. We had the foi gras - which was among the best I've had and a beautiful mushroom salad - with mushrooms that they had just gotten in that day (everyone loved it). For appetizers we had the l'orange duck ravioli (a house specialty), tagliatelle mushroom special (those fresh wild mushrooms again!) and spaghetti... More

Nice surroundings but the food was not worth going all the way out there. There were four of us and none was overwhelmed by the food.
