Meat lover rejoice! Dario the famous butcher will deliver your fantasy. Choose Mac Dario for more of a burger fare or La Officina for the full monty. It's an experience like you've never had before and only if you like your meat in any way it comes - the rarer the better. Don't eat before you go.

Dario's meat is special. His mac Dario menu is the best value for money for high quality, delicious food. It is always a carnivore's dream meal. I love all of his restaurants but Mac Dario always is a winner for a last minute stop as no reservations! Fun atmoshpere as its always a party and fun to meet other travellers... More

We had 11 diners for a Sunday lunch. Sitting right across from the grill and eyeing the meat before, during, after cooking and then eating until we couldn't eat another bite was a fun experience beginning with our first glance at the place. When we first arrived there were all types of samples of meat and wine that people off... More

The food was fine but they got our order wrong, which we were okay with since the menu items are fairly close so we decided to just take the dish. I noticed that an element from the dish was missing so I asked about it and was gruffly told "it's finished" with no apology or attempt to replace the missing... More

I have had a quick scan through previous reviews and i honestly cannot understand how anyone could give this place less than a 4 out of 5. We dined here with 2 small children, the restaurant was really busy.. The staff and other customers (Long tables, so you... More

Exciting. Maybe it was years since I entered the restaurant intrigued. Well this place, reflects the reputation - deserved - of its owner Dario Cecchini. At the table does not matter what you eat: meat, meat, meat. You can bring our own wine from home. After the meal, coffee mocha and friendly Italian Army. Not expensive.

Despite having read Heat and then all about Dario and his exploits in both the butchers shop and in his eateries I was pleasantly surprised that I stumbled across Greve in Chianti more or less by accident. Due to this we were not prepared for one of the set menus from his place across the road but settled instead for... More
