Must eat place in Colle di Val d'Elsa. Surprising and maverick dishes made from local and organic products. Great atmosphere and very helpful staff who was able to explain their menu in perfect English. The place seems to be popular also among locals so booking on Friday / Saturday evening may be required.

After a week of meat-based dishes, what a refreshing surprise! Reasonably priced, wonderfully presented, top quality restaurant, with healthy organic locally and ethically sourced ingredients! Bravo chef Zak and owner Chiara. Interesting high level wine list. Can't wait to return!

I had a dinner many times during my studies in Siena. I think it's an interesting restaurant which offers a lot of vegetarian plates. I know that they use km zero products and oeganict but I believe that it's too much expensive!! There are other place in Tuscany that use similar and excellent products but have costs more less than... More

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
