Our private tour driver from Driver in Italy took us to this quaint delight on our way to Pisa. The house wine was delicious and only $5 a bottle to take away. The pasta with green beans was a delight and the cheese plate was delicious. The crowning touch was the bistecca florentine which was cut to 1.4 kilos- we... More

An authentic cantinetta with really good food. Family ambiance and friendly service. The lunch service was busy yet they took out time to explain the menu and tweak it for us. The clientele was mostly local which is always a compliment to the food.

The restaurant it's in the very centre of San Casciano. The place it's like a typical Italian from my childhood; atmosphere it's good like visit a family of long ago. We had a Tortino of Local Herbs with melted pecorino cheese, cinta senese and cured meat. Ragu' sauce with Pasta and the amazing steak Fiorentina of 1,5 kg. we had... More

A pleasant sidewalk terrace outside the cantinetta. Exceptionally good food, pleasant dining rooms some with privacy. Reasonable prices. No pretense. Cordial owner and other guests. We Floridians enjoyed talking at dinner with a couple from Estonia. A local artist and teacher taught us about transubstantiation in paintings over lunch! Would not have happened at home.

The food was awesome with a focus on local dishes. Service was excellent and the owner even packed up some food to go for one of our party who was sick back at the hotel

Just the way you expect your regular good Italian restaurant to be: good, typical food (without any real wow effect beyond a good Italian/Tuscan cuisine, but no disappointments either) with fair portions, friendly, family-style setting and service, fair prices and a free grappa to finish it off. :-)

We ate here twice on our recent stay in San Casciano. We were six - with two children - and we all enjoyed our dinners. The food was well prepared and the service was excellent and friendly. Being offered free Limoncellos after dinner just topped it off.

We stopped at this place for lunch during our tour of the Chianti Classico wine region. The appetizers were superb. Many liked the eggplant, while my favorite was the liver pate. I ordered the wild boar pasta and it was better than I imagined. This place is definitely worth the 30 minute drive from Florence.
