It's more then just dinner, it's an interesting experience.

I am not used to eating organic and vegan cousine, so I admit I am not an expert. But I think that people should try this kind of food, and this restaurant makes great dishes with vegetables and whole foods. The vine was very smooth, little sweet, also organic. The atmosphere in the restaurant is... read more

Fabulous, friendly staff, wide varieties of meals, organic, vegan and vegetarian Menu written on a chalkboard but staff able to translate perfectly, quite pricey but worth it for good homemade vegetarian food!

Sbarbicapolla Biosteria is a name which just doesn't roll off of the tongue easily, but you'll remember it for the delightful Foodie dishes which you enjoyed there. Has an inventive menu which highlights fresh organic produce prepared in memorable style. Also some great meat dishes for we Carnivores too. Enjoy. ...

Every time we travel to Italy we make sure to have at least a meal in this fantastic osteria. We love the appetizers and the many many vegetarian dishes. Plus Chiara always recommends the best white wine for our meal.

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.
