Porta di Levante continues to shine as one of the best restaurants in the area and what a wine cellar. Again we have modern Tuscan cuisine evolving and top rate local produce resulting as always with the magic of Christian in the kitchen in the most fantastic dishes. Having had a cooking lesson with Christian at the nearby Villa Campestri... More

On a wet evening in July we had a meal with Italian friends here and the experience was mixed. After the resolution of a booking error we were given a lovely round table in the front room. A glass of white wine was given to us immediately as a welcome drink. Some of the dishes were successful, others had sounded... More

A great meal in a lovely setting. We managed to get a table outside on the terrace and had their seasonal tasting menu which was really good. The truffle featured very heavily on the menu and was a little over done but the overall quality was really good. The staff are really helpful and the owner selected a fantastic bottle... More

Stumbled across this restaurant by accident. Didn't expect such a fantastic restaurant in such an out of the way location. The food was superb and I was extremely delighted at the choice of wine available to compliment the food. Great ambiance with different groups in the room I was in. There was another group of British tourists as well as... More

Doesn't look much from the outside,and isn't in a scenic location, but food and service both very good. Price very acceptable. Menu is in Italian but waiter (owner ?) was very accomodating and translated with reasonably good grace. I know - what should we expect !! Well worth a visit.

There's not a lot of classy places to eat in Vicchio but this is one. Hidden behind the pleasant but modest façade is an extraordinarily series of spacious and modern rooms. Very welcoming, relaxed. Excellent food. Try steak tartare and bistecca Fiorentina. Even the veggie option looked good. The proprietor looks like Heston Blumenthal.

The strong, simple flavours that dominate Tuscan cuisine go large in the Mugello. The rolling, forested hills hereabouts ensure that boar and venison are a big part of the local offerings--accompanied by uber-hearty treats such as potato tortelli with ragu. It's exactly what you need on a cold winter's night after a long walk. And so, on a foggy evening... More

There's alot of seating in this place, but you'd never expect that looking in from the outside. This place changes it's menu every month...which makes sense because of the change of seasons. Their wine menu is vast and very interesting...There is art work everywhere and the service is on point! Simone is a great host! And Christian the Chef aims... More
