A Meaty Adventure

Eating at Solociccia was an experience I will never forget. Our adventure started in Dario Cecchini's famous butcher shop, where he personally greeted us with a glass of vino and crostini, all of which were free. In the midst of the party atmosphere Dario explained that his restaurant across the... read more

Dinner at Solo Ciccia was not only delicious but also a great experience. The table is set outside behind the butcher shop; i really liked the concept of food sharing at a big communal table. It felt like one of those sunday meals with the family. The courses are exquisite and will please every meat lover out there. Everything is... More

Visited in late August 2015 with 2 friends. Our dinner at Solo Ciccia has been a highlight of a week-long Tuscany trip. The experience was fun - eating is at long tables, communal-style; menu is set, so you really get to enjoy your time with best options already selected. All meaty dishes were delicious, with Arrosto Fiorentino my favorite. Meat... More

After the traditional Italian restaurant we had chosen was book out we decided to give this a go. I had read some positive experiances about the various establishments the family own and thought it sounded interesting. My husband and I approached the crowd which was spilled out on the street eating salumi and washing it down with a tumbler of... More

If nearby don't miss the opportunity to attend the palace of beef. Dario has improved on his trademark: Great Beef served many ways in different venues. Pick one, go with an open mind, you will not be disappointed. It's not fine dining, just fun and great food. Be prepared to become close and make new friends. It's part of the... More

I have purposely travelled great distances to try different Michelin-starred restaurants. I consider myself a foodie. This restaurant is one I will visit again and it exceeded my expectations. For my first visit, I did eat all of the meat. I rarely eat meat, but appreciated the effort and attention made by the chef. For my second visit, I opted... More

Based on all the marketing hype I expected a great experience and instead got a 45 min selection of small dishes of tasteless meat covered in olive oil.

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

I myself am a chef and have been for the last thirty years. I worked as a Saucier for Wolfgang puck for several years and had several award winning restaurants of my own. When I first saw Dario it was on Anthony Bourdains no reservations and I immediately realized that here is someone who truly loves what he does and... More

Wonderful food in a charming setting -- great, attentive staff and food that surpasses the already high standards of the area. Memorable evening. Try the cabbage rolls. Excellent house wines.
