Dining options: Dinner, Reservations, Late Night
Description: The Concept of our restaurant is to combine the traditional tuscan kitchen with the fantasy and the gastronomic mastery of our Starred Chef Francesco Bracali. Meat and vegetables are the focus of our kitchen, and we prepare our dishes with typical and esteemed ingredients: pink chickpeas from Reggello, saffron from San Gimignano, onions from Certaldo, steaks from Agricola San Felice Farm. Our guests can pick a tasting wine from our wine list, witch is particularly rich of Tuscan and Italian esteemed wines. The room and the service will satisfy a demanding clientele. The Poggio Rosso Restaurant, closed to two ancient chapels, is also an ideal location for classy weddings and ceremonies. Come and visit us in the heart of Chianti Classico.

Beautiful restaurant in a restored Tuscan village. The hotel has it all. Meticulously maintained, excellent food and wine list, attentive service. We would go back and stay at the hotel. Outstanding.

We were staying at the hotel,and arranged to eat here on our first night whilst we got to know the area. The food and service are very good and it is well worth dining her if you are in the area, however it is not cheap

The food in general was ok, even though nothing special, but the staff is not very proffesional. A lot of improvement to be done!!

I was doubly disappointed with Poggio Rosso because I had such high hopes for a great meal. Service was not just relaxed or slow, it seemed we had been forgotten. Food quality was good, and the wines chosen for us by the restaurant were fine, but the pairings were a disaster. I am still stumped how the decisions could have... More

I love the ambiance of this restaurant. Service was friendly and professional. Not all the dishes were excellent. Some dishes were really over the top it tasted confusing; as if the Chef was trying so hard. Anyway, that didn't deter me from trying it again. I went the second time during my last day at the hotel, this time I... More

Michelin starred, but disappointing. Beautiful room in a beautiful setting in Borgo San Felice, good service, but the tagliata was overpriced and downright tough, even though cooked medium rare. Not acceptable at those prices (50€ per person). I expected better. The rest of the menu got lost trying to be overly creative, in my mind, frou frou. Some may like... More

Food was good. We had the tasting menu twice and the regular menu once. Most of the courses were delicious. The shrimp soup was tasty but lacked soup! Only a spoonful and a half of liquid. Interesting way to do soup. The restaurant staff were present night and day from early breakfast to late dinner. They were polite, professional and... More
