Very nice spot

We ate there twice during our week long stay at the Castello del Trebbio. The staff greet you with a small drink of champagne as soon as you sit. Nice touch. The menu is authentic Tuscan and the prices in keeping with a higher standard of restaurant. The items we had were all very good. The... read more

We stayed at a villa which is also owned by the same people who own this restaurant. We were a party of 10 (5 couples) and arranged to have our first and last dinner at this restaurant during our weeklong stay. While the food was excellent, the service was horrible. Unfortunately, the bad service so overshadowed the quality of the... More

The setting of this restaurant was wonderful, staff so helpful. Maybe the chef was having a bad night but we didn't enjoy it as much as we hoped. Confit of beef was awful and I found it very hard to finish it. My husband was the same with his and we really aren't fussy (I swear!). It just wasn't the... More

We were encouraged to arrive at 7:30 p.m. to see the Tuscan sunset from the patio dining area. That's earlier than most dine in Italy but the sunset, the food, the wait staff, the wines and the company of my partner, two sons, and their partners made for a spectacular dining experience. The chef prepared a tasting menu for the... More

They are truly artists at La Sosta Del Gusto. My wedding dinner was beyond what I ever imagined. My guests are still talking about the amazing cocktail hour and dinner. The fried sage and zucchini flour rets were incredible.

I have been going to this restaurant for the past several years and find Chef Claudio to be one of the most talented and creative chefs in Tuscany. They utilize all local ingredients, herbs and spices grown on the premises, and personally select all cheese and meat from local farmers. The location set on the Tuscan hills S/E of Florence,...

Yes, this is another of my favorite venues for weddings, the restaurant is located at the Castello del Trebbio, but even if you are not getting married, do stop by for dinner, Claudio is a truly talented chef, the ancient cellars turned into the restaurant hall are beautiful, the wines are lovely, and you'll want to go back!

We were staying at a nearby villa and had been to the wine tour earlier that day (which was also fantastic and Alberto was a great host and really informative) We arrived after booking a table and were seated in a long gallery which was one of the old wine cellars. A really lovely atmosphere. Being English and with limited... More
