The restaurant was somewhat difficult to find, but worth the effort. We arrived around 7:30 before the crowd appeared at 8 PM. They had about 15-20 tables that were eventually filled. The meal was very tasty (not exceptional), but the service was friendly and attentive and the price very reasonable. We would return for another meal in the future.

Sassolini is a nice restaurant in the old section of Panzano that we have visited over 5 times during the past 3 years. Based on recent experience, it is good but we do not regard it as the #1 in town. Service is generally friendly and the food good but it can come slowly and this past summer, during two... More

Welcoming family restaurant with a lovely dining area in the garden. It is a very popular restaurant for the locals and it is always busy so if you want a table in the garden during the busy summer months make sure you make a reservation. The service is quick and friendly and the food is just amazing. Typical Italian food... More

The Cantinetta Sassolini, one of only a few restaurants in the old section of Panzano, and the only one open the night we stayed there, is a charming place, especially the outdoor seating. Nevertheless in all honesty I was a tad disappointed: the service was slow, items ordered were not delivered to the table until second requests were made and... More

Of course you expect good food in Italy. On the other hand to be honest, you can also find many places which thrive because of all the tourists, so sometimes it easy to slip into a rather "blasse" mood. Not here - family owned, busy, genuine (heard it before ?), friendly, attentive, well done, menu and wines adopted to resources... More

Lovely lamb chops, delicious cheese, good wine and a cute place. I warmly recommend this place! It started to rain in the middle of the dinner, but the staff organized place inside for everyone. We had a good table from the start tho.

Party of 8, Atmosphere,welcome,food and wine all good and clients return time after time to this restaurant run by a slightly manic owner supported by calm staff. Well worth a visit.

A nice restaurant with a very friendly staff. We had to eat inside due to rain which was a bit disappointing because the weather had been great up until this particular day. Parking can be a bit challenging, but well worth the effort. Mixed green salad and pea soup were very good as well as the main courses. Steak was... More

Our group of 9 had dinner at Sassolini on our last night in Tuscany. Beautiful atmosphere and incredibly happy and friendly service. We arrived without a reservation and within a few minutes the staff had put together a pretty al fresco table for us. The food was wonderful, the wine list extensive and the evening a success. Panzano is also... More

The minute you come to this place you sense a feeling of warmth. You are greeted by the owner himself.this is a family run business.from the antipasti to the dessert everything is perfect.the bruschetta with tomato was perfect and the pasta was like homemade. You could feel that they cook from the heart.
