To beef or not to beef...

The food was good...The theater of the experience made it a special night....oh...and the bake potato with lardo. Whoever thought of using this condiment instead of butter is probably dead, but they deserve a posthumous medal of honor. Mmmmm...lardo.

You like meat? You love meat? So, Officina Della Bistecca is your place! I never in my life eaten meat so well prepared. A very well done menu with meat variations. At your table other people will sit, which is great, because they end up knowing and talking a little of their country. The potato with butter Chianti is very... More

I know it is very popular place.. But still.. Unique format, friendly atmosphere, the best meat (which is not a common angus, or luxurious wagyu, but a mindblowing Chianina). Dario is a master in what he do. I've been here many times and will be back again! Thank u!

This is a must try experience if you love meat and enjoy it rare done. Before the dinner they are expecting the guests in the butchery serving local grappa and wine and some bruschetta and olives and lard in a very nice atmosphere. At dinner they are serving meat tartar followed by 4 fantastic steaks from the grill (including Bistecca... More

Visiting Officina della Bistecca is like going to a show. The restaurant is located above the butcher shop of Dario Ceccini, and belongs to him. It consist of a long room with a single long table where everyone sits. The show starts with the waiters running around, and introducing everyone to everyone else. in the beginning it seems a bit...

Shocked that the ratings are not higher! I very seldom eat beef.....and this was the best experience ever. The beef was really good and the experience was sooooo fun. Dario is great, loads of fun and so gracious. I would definitely recommend and if I'm ever in the area, I'll go again for another fun time!

We have had lunch twice at Dario Doc in previous trips & this year decided to say overnight in Panzano & tackle the Officinal Della Bistecca - so glad we did. If you like beef you really just cannot go wrong with this meal - starting with Beef Tartar then Rump Carpaccio, Rib Eye, Panzanese Steak & finally the Bistecca... More

The food is amazing. You will struggle to go through the whole mean. This is old school stuff. It's like you came to someone's house for a meal. No choosing or ordering. It's one set long menu and one type of wine like it wood be if you visited a friend. The experience is great. Highly recommended.

What else would you expect from a restaurant run by a butcher? Dario's family has run this butcher shop for 8 generations. Check out Bill Buford's wonderful profile in the New Yorker, "Carnal Knowledge" from May 2006. Cocktails start when you enter the butcher shop...a glass of Chianti thrust into your hand. Watch Dario hold court from behind his butcher... More
