Excellent!

Last summer we had dinner at la Botte. The restaurant itself, the service and the food were excellent. Unfortunately we only discovered this place on our last night of our stay. But the whole family is still talking about this lovely place. Keep on with the good work!

We were a party of six renting a Villa for a week in the town of Vagliagli. This was an outstanding restaurant. It is an intimate restaurant. The food was stunning- better than anything we had in Florence or Rome. If you can get there, do not miss it.

We spent 2 weeks in Vagliagli and sadly we didn't get a chance to visit the restaurant until our last evening. This was the best restaurant experience we had in Tuscany, the food was wonderful and the host were equally so, The attention to detail in the food was exceptional, as was the service, the hosts did everything they could...

A small restaurant, hosted by the most charming couple made this a delightful evening, one we repeated in our week long stay in Tuscany. There is no shortage of fabulous choices for dining in Tuscany, so why not make the meal meaningful as well. The owners are most delightful and their commitment to making our meal perfect was evident from... More

Chef Laura and Salvatore welcomed us to their Osteria la Botte in Vagliagli, and we instantly felt at home. The food was excellent with Laura putting her heart and soul into the menus. We actually spent 2 evenings there for dinner, and returned again for dessert during our week stay in the area. The food and wine were remarkable; the... More

wonderful, wonderful, authentic Tuscan food in this little hide-a-way near Siena. The atmosphere was lovely, the food and wine fabulous, and Laura and Salvatore are two of the nicest people I've ever met. They made us feel like part of the family!

This is a great little family restaurant owned by Salvatore (host and Tiramisu chef) and Laura (chef eccezionale). We were staying nearby and tried this out based on reviews. Everything was well prepared, and with some unique and tasty flavors. Nothing fancy, this is just a warm, old brick-arched Osteria with an ancient well in the middle of the dining... More

After landing in Florence, we drove straight to this little gem for Sunday lunch. What a treat! Salvatore and Laura are simply divine hosts. The restaurant is set in what used to be a stable. Hooks for tying horses are still on the walls. There is a fresh water well that now has koi fish. Our lunch, handmade by Laura... More

As others have mentioned here this is a place when you can get truly authentic and delicious food. Service is personal and genuine. The chef takes great pride in her daily menu creations and is sure to come to the table and describe each ingredient if you ask about it. We found this place at the beginning of our 2-week... More
