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.

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

To beef or not to beef! The beef set menu comes in strong with a Tartare that is perfect! Followed by a succession of greater cuts of the cow cooked over the wooden oven grill...its spectacular and the quality of the meat is outstanding!!! The generosity is overwhelming and I was the most full I have ever been when I... More

I'm Italian and i pretend a lot from a restaurant, but Dario fulfilled all my expectations! we were in 4 and we took all the 4 plates he offers (prices are 10, 15, 20€ for a full plate) with house wine and water - 15-16€ each. The hamburger for 10€ is awesome! I strongly suggest it!!! After the lunch you... More

Went here in April 2014 when my friends and I were in Tuscany. This was such a fun place to go to!! The food was great and eating at communal tables allows you to meet people from around the world. You have to come here if you're in this area.

Ok, not more. For meat lovers who love their beef almost blue. Every part tasted the same. Wine is not very good ( cheap).Certainly not a 50E meal! Experience is ok. The staff is great . Atmosphere ok.

Dario Cecchini is just great! My wife and I and friends were on a wine trip in Chianti. I read about Dario Cecchini on TA and figured that we just had to come here based on all the good reviews. When we got there we were put off at first by the hordes of tourists that flocked in. But Dario... More

Dario is a great showman and the multiple meat preparations from Tuscan sushi to Bistecca Fiorentina are extraordinary
