Dario has worked hard to achieve a viable business using cuts of meat not normally found in a restaurant. He offers an experience which any traveller in the area should try and he does so at a price which is extraordinarily reasonable.

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

Now, please keep in consideration that we came here and Lunch time. 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

We travel quite a bit, and enjoy a good dinner at the end of the day. I don't understand some of these reviews..... I just left Dario Cecchini’s restaurant, Solociccia, The butcher of Panzano. The restaurant itself is well presented, with a modern touch. We had stopped by earlier in the week and made made 7 pm reservations. Saw Mr.... More

We went to Mc Dario with high expectation to enjoy a fantastic burger and returned very disappointed. You can order some predefined plates which ensure a speedy service, however the food was bad. The McDario did not have any taste, the meat was overdone, the french fries were OKish and the salad bad. That's more of a tourist trap and... More

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
