We are not vegetarians, but after time in a part of Italy where meat is dominant, we found this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed it. The welcome was so warm, the service attentive but not intrusive and the food so light and flavousome, indeed inspired, that we returned for a second night, which was. enjoyed just as much if not more....

This was a very lively restaurant offering mostly non meat choices but did if you so desired. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and gave you tips on what to eat. The starters were extremely plentiful and the platter with most appetisers was delicious as was the very light mousse. The mains however were a bit on the heavy... More

Was a very nice restaurant, good service (explained the menu from Italian to English). Good Rosato wine. Most of the food is vegetarian but everything is freshly made. The dessert (chocolate mousse with pears) is delicious.

It's so hard to find creative food which is also very healthy. This restaurant offers great selection of meat dishes but also lots of veggie ones. A very friendly couple run the place, it's easy to feel at home! to not be missed!!

What a find! We were staying near Colle di Val d'Elsa for a week and ate here three times. All the food and wines are organically produced and prepared with loving attention. The tasting dish of starters is outstanding and great value. The onion soup is the best we've ever tasted. Great atmosphere, very reasonably priced. Chiara and her front... More

After calling for 4 days in a row to be able to book a table, we finally made it to this little Biosteria, expecting something refreshing and wholesome based on all the stellar reviews the place has received so far. What we found instead is an overpriced, factitious attempt at originality that failed to put forward a single noteworthy dish.... More

That's amazing! It's one of the best "osteria" I ever been. There is passion and attention of details in each course. If you are around siena, I really suggest to visit sbarbacipolla. Don't forget to reserve a table if you don't want to wait, it's getting crowded and known day by day. Highly recommended.
