We were enjoying the wine tasting at the wine festival in Panzano when we came across this great restaurant. We were ushered down to the cellar and sat a large table with 10 others. Communal eating is a part of the charm of this wonderful restaurant. Dario Cecchini is on a quest to popularise all the cuts of beef and... More

This is Dario's restaurant where the fixed price meal is served family style at group setting tables. At 30 euro a person, it's a great value. Come early for the reception at the butcher shop across the street. Also, take the late seating (9:00) so you won't feel rushed as they need to clean up after the 7:00 seating.

We had a great night here at the communal table - feasting on wonderful meats by Dario. We had the 7pm sitting and was treated to numerous dishes and great chianti. We met Dario after who was happy to have his photo taken. Great fun night.

We went to dario after a "tip" from other people. We shouldn't have. What a terrible touristic moneymaking thing this is. Long tables, with only one type of wine and bread on the table. We were with 3 kids, when we asked if we could eat another thing than just the 50 euro dario meal, the answer was no. We... More

If you look up "The Butcher of Panzano" on the internet, you will be directed to some UTube videos of Dario, The Butcher giving a demonstration of butchering a pig. His wife who speaks English gives the commentary. He is passionate about his trade that has been in his family for generations and expresses his love of using ALL of... More

I had a bad experience. They put you in a big room with a long table and serve meat.. The meat was not good and at the and of the meal they send you in an other room for coffee.. They use the drip coffee maker, not the machine that is used at the coffee bar. A truly tourist trap.... More

Thus is a unique dinner unlike the average trattoria, Osteria, or whatever casual dining experience we had on Italy. The enterprise is committed to filling you with parts of the steer otherwise not readily consumed and or in preparations unfamiliar to the norm of family dining. We shared a table for 14 with another party of two and eventually a... More

We were disappointed in our experience at Solo Ciccia -- our end of the table had an obnoxious assortment of people, so that was not particularly fun. The concept of tasting multiple parts of the cow was intriguing but many of them were not very tasty, tough, etc. We might have fared better trying one of the other two Dario... More

A fun concept executed well. Nicely designed place. Common table makes for an awkward but fun experience with other diners. At the end of the day, if you're a meat lover, and you're in the area, you gotta hit this place up!
