Don't miss this gem of a restaurant

This restaurant was so good we went twice during our one-week visit. The food was the best we had in Italy (and we had a lot of excellent food)! The restaurant is charming, the food is exceptional and the service is outstanding!

This is a small traditional establishment proudly carrying the banner of Tuscan culinary tradition. Don't expect to find any fancy meals here as it is all about proven age old recipes. It is difficult to point out an especially outstanding meal - everything is homey and very tasty.

Nice ambient with good food and kind staff. Reasonable prices and best wines of the region! Don't miss the antipasto with beans and tartufo!

We ate lunch at Cantinetta Sassolini with family members. The food was excellent , service outstanding and the owners, Margarita and her parents , made the meal memorable. The meat dishes were outstanding and the vegetables and soup delicious. Those who had dessert, which was home made, said they were perfect. We look forward to going back again in nicer... More

We ate here twice during our week in Tuscany. The food is all local and fresh. The lamb is particularly good. Didn't have a bad dish. Parking can be a bit of an adventure

The food here was excellent, the gnocchi with cheese and pear was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. I was very sad that we only went here on our last night hence could not return. Would happily revisit this restaurant in the future.

We stumbled upon this absolute gem as we were driving around Tuscany. Not only is Panzano in Chianti a sublimely charming, old, rustic town but this restaurant is arguably the best meal we have ever had. My partner said of the rabbit salad "this is the best salad I have ever had" and that sentiment was echoed with every dish... More

Visited November 22, 2014. An absolutely wonderful foodie experience. The owner is a very pretty young lady whose father is in charge of the dining room and whose boyfriend is the chef. Food was excellent and presented in an artistic way. We would have gone back a second nite but they were hosting a private party.Very highly recommend Sassolini if... More

We ate at Sassolini twice during our stay near Panzano, and those meals were some of the best during our entire trip to Tuscany. The service was excellent--the waiters accommodated our 15-month-old daughter perfectly, and they didn't bat an eye when we accidentally arrived for our reservation an hour early. (We didn't realize the time had changed in Italy. That... More

We went to this restaurant on our first night in Panzano. We were staying in a villa nearby. Parking is a bit tricky if you are trying to manoever a large van around the old town. We finally managed to find a spot on a side street. The meal was divine. Service was attentive but not intrusive. All 6 of... More
