We arrived in Panzano around 5pm and while walking down the main strip came upon the menu posted outside the front door. With no booking, we arrived when they opened and we were immediately seated outside in the courtyard. About a half hour later the place was full, so definitely book! (this was near the end of Sept 2014). Our... More

We stopped in for dinner on the recommendation of staff at Dario Cecchini's butcher (a must go if you haven't already heard). We sat in the beautiful courtyard and had a fantastic meal. The staff were attentive, the food was beautiful and the bill was very reasonable! Highly recommended.

We recently stayed in a villa just outside Panzano for a week and visited this restaurant twice because it was so good! The food was excellent, as was the local wine, and the courtyard patio outside was always busy but never noisy or chaotic. The staff were attentive and gave us a lot of recommendations for what to see and... More

We arrived in Panzano, and the Villa's caretaker recommended this restaurant for dinner. Little did we know what a treat we were about to experience. The Picci was so good we make it at home but cannot replicate. The proprietor was a fantastic host, and shared a beer or two with us at meal's end. My family still talks about... More

We were staying in Panzano and were told by one of our drivers that this was the best restaurant, so we went for dinner. It was fantastic. Excellent starters and food. Really wonderful service. I had the risotto to start and it was really, really good. For an entree I had the ribeye steak, which had to be the leanest,... More

We were recommended by our hotel to come to this great restaurant with quality cuisine. Had one of the best dinners in the Chianti in a very unassuming location.

Amazing place tucked away in the centre of the village. The food was gorgeous. We enjoyed an aubergine parmegiana starter which melted in the mouth. This was followed by a bistecca alla fiorentina and crumbed pork - both wonderful. The atmosphere was great. The staff very attentive and helpful. We only wish that we could have returned for dinner at... More

Located in Greve in Chianti, we absolutely loved this gem! We enjoyed it so much the first time we cam back another night for dinner during our stay. Cozy spot on the outside patio was great!! Lots of locals dinning here. My husband had the beef steak Florentine and I had a Bolognese dish with tagliatelle al ragu. I thought... More

I thought the food was average here, it wasn't bad but it also wasn't good. The bruschetta tasted like what I would call tourist food and the pork was okay. The service was excellent and Panzano was a delightful little town. We went there based on the TA reviews and our expectations were not really met.
