With its innovative vegetarian, vegan and also non-vegetarian cuisine, passion for ultra-local organic produce and fantastic staff, Sbarbacipolla is a rare find in this part of Tuscany. If you're looking for thought provoking tastes, textures and colours in dishes made with produce from trusted high quality local smallholders then come here. This is fast becoming a regular place for us.

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
