This small family owned restaurant was one of the best we encountered. It is a small traditional Italian restaurant proudly carrying the family's Tuscan culinary tradition for generations. The well at the restaurant's cnetre was dug in the 13th century by the family. It is not used today but this family ownes the property for such a long time and... More

Dissapointed with this choice of restaurants after feading all of the positive reviews. I dropped by for lunch as a solo traveler, ordered the bruschetta which was strictly average and overpriced. Followed by the ribeye which was the highlight of the meal, supremely tasteful, seasoned and grilled to my asking. Mixed grilled vegetables as a side was overcooked, pretty much... More

My first steak Florentine and it was amazing! I would go back to Sassolini to have it again, the food was amazing the wait staff were attentive and spoke English (a little). The meal on the terrace was very nice, the location is beautiful

With so many great dining experiences in Tuscany, there is nothing about this one which stands out. Yet, at the end of the day, when you reflect upon the meal, it was nothing short of perfect. The food was as good as it gets. The service was impeccable. All in a very unassuming environment. And the check will surely put... More

The owner of the bed and breakfast we are staying at recommended this restaurant. Upon entering, the owner warmly greeted us and had us seated outside (highly recommend). The service and food were exceptional and it is not above the owner to run around checking on patrons and bussing tables. Excellent dining experience.

Our Air BnB hosts made a booking for us here on our one and only night in Chianti. They told us to ask the restaurant staff to call the taxi driver when we were ready to leave to save us walking the main road at night. Turns out the taxi driver was out of town, so we enjoyed a wonderful... More

We came to this place based on The positive reviwes read here. Id say its ok, but not ti be worth remebered. Tables way to close to each other, it seems that as long as they can fit as many people as possible then who cares about The comfort.

We had dinner at Sassolini on our first night in charming Panzano. We appreciated the attentive and quick service and our first bistecca alla fiorentina, which was perfectly prepared, but the appetizers were disappointing (a very salty herring salad and a bland bean flan with pecorino). Perhaps Sassolini should stick to traditional Tuscan recipes or test new dishes more carefully.... More

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!
