We drove well out of our way (based on the reviews) to have an unforgettable dining experience and it was unforgettable alright. The food was mediocre at best. The dining atmosphere was hugely disappointing. Dario arrived at the butcher shop, barely said hello to the 20 or so people waiting there. We were served some very bad wine, the band... More

I was very anxiuos to eat today at Dario the butcher in Panzanno! But what a huge dissapointment!!! To explain: they have 2 long paralel lines of tables: in the first raw u can eat the burgers, in the 2nd, you can order steaks only between 13:00-14:00. We arrived at 13:50, we have placed at the burgers table and although... More

Very disappointed, Dario's ego was front and centre, to bad his customers weren't! The dining area was brutal, shouldn't all dining in Tuscany in the summer be al fresco, we were stuck in a poorly decorated basement. The food was beef, BEEF FAT! VERY LITTLE ACTUAL BEEF TO BE FOUND. If you want beef go to MacDonald's because you won't... More

Meat is the theme here. If you like meat this is where you should eat. Dario is a master. His technique and preparation of each course was without question the work of a master chef, butcher, host. This is the best meal I have ever had. The atmosphere is one of great joy. Sitting a a table with people form... More

We went to dario after a "tip" from other people. We shouldn't have. What a terrible touristic moneymaking thing this is. Long tables, with only one type of wine and bread on the table. We were with 3 kids, when we asked if we could eat another thing than just the 50 euro dario meal, the answer was no. We... More

The butcher shop was a great experience as we were given wine and a toasted crostini with a spread of lard and Rosemary. Dario was a great host. We had lunch across the street and also came back the night after for dinner and had the meat dinner that in my opinion was the greatest night of my life. Fantastic... More

Rated on lonely planet as a must visit, it is indeed an experience. We entered the butcher shop to have a glass thrust into our hands, filled with Chianti, and an invitation to taste the treats on offer. Then to the sudden load beat of ACDC Highway to Hell, the shop was invaded by a busload of young tourists and... More

We went to Mac Dario for lunch and our only regret is that we didn't go more hungry! The butcher shop itself was a very cool experience as we were given wine and a toasted crostini with a spread of lard and rosemary - it was so delicious and we probably ate too much of that prior to lunch! We... More

As if Cecchini requires any more great recommendations! But I'll throw in my two cents worth! We have been visiting Dario's Macelleria and restaurants since 2007 and can only say that it's worth the trip! Our last visit was a couple of months ago where we met a friend for lunch. We opted for sharing a platter of Chianti "sushi"... More

Had a great lunch at this place, great staff, brilliant atmosphere and although I'm not into fast food the best hamburger I've ever had. Would certainly recommend a visit!
