Really enjoyed this meal. Surrounded by more Italians than tourists but staff were kind and helpful to speakers of only a little Italian. Stunned by simple pleasure of the dishes which looked and tasted fabulous. Atmosphere was relaxed but civilised. Nice to drink local wine but with choice of grander alternatives.

Small and simple home style menu that offers superbly tasting dishes. Everything was absolutely delicious. Zucchini and pine nuts risotto was one of the best risottos I've ever had. Gnocchi was really good as well. The service is very friendly and the place itself has a very pleasant homey feel. The prices are very decent. There was an equal mix... More

We got the rib eye and the lamb, both were incredible. We loved it so much we came back the next night. The waitresses and manager (maybe owner?) went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. The atmosphere is authentic and the food speaks for itself. Top 5 restaurants I have ever been too.

For some reason people seem to be fooled by the alternative 'Butcher of Chianti'. Don't follow the crowds. If you want a decent authentic meal, then come to Sassolini. It's not posh. But it's authentic. I don't remember eating better Tagliata, or rib of beef - well seasoned, and cooked to perfection. And it's local Chianti beef, sold by the... More

A very nice restaurant in the citadel of Panzano in Chianti, where we had an excellent Tuscan experience. Honest prices, very nice and friendly service, and excellent dishes. The daily menu included an onion and potato cream soup (a first time for us) that our 10-year old son actually loved and ate until the last drop. A Tuscan salad, a... More

A lovely dining setting with a simple and tasty menu. The wines were excellent and great value. We very much appreciated their patience with young and at times restless children. My tip would be to book as it was very full! Go early if you don't want to miss out on the veal.

We ate here on Monday night, booked in advance. We came with our 18 month old son, who's of an age where he gets bored easily and needs routine for sleeps, food etc. Straight away, we were asked if we required a high chair which was quickly brought to us. We asked if he could have his dinner, tagliatelle, whilst... More

We arrived for an 8pm sitting with our toddler in tow. We walked around the village while it was still light and from all sides the views are stunning. The restaurant is in a beautiful courtyard setting in the heart of the village and had a great atmosphere to it. They were extremely accommodating for our boy and all three... More

Try the aubergine parmigiana! We stumbled upon this place (and whole village) because we got lost on our way to Castellina... and what a happy coincidence that was! This food is a true taste of Italy, prepared with love. You can really tell that this is a family-run establishment. Don't miss it!!
