Great food, highly recommended

After being several times for dinner at "L' Oste Matto", I feel it deserves a short comment: this is by far and large the best restaurant we have visited in Tuscany over the last five years.

The interesting selections on the menu were like nothing we had seen anywhere else. There were a fer standard items of Pasta, but most of the Primi and Secundo items we truly unique. Had some great local wines. Most of the staff spoke little or no Italian but the head waiter was able to explain all the entrees in very... More

Traditional tuscan cooking, revisited in a modern and brilliant way. Excellent wines with reasonable prices. Warm and original ambience. Absolutely suggested!

Always, always talk to someone about allergies or intolerances before eating at any place. I was so happy to talk to the staff and see that they understood my needs and knew how to prepare my food without getting me sick. The food is truly amazing and I left feeling fulfilled.

Incredible find. The owner sure knows how to blow you away with flavours, colours, presentation etc. The ambience is also second to none. Make sure you catch a warm summer evening to make the best of the outdoor seating area. Enjoy!

We came here during our holiday, staying about one hour from Lucignano, because L'Oste Matto is rated the Nr. 1 restaurant in Arezzo province. We had a reservation for 8 pm and were among the first guests. One of the waiters explained the Italian menu to us in English, which was very helpful and nice of him to do. We... More

Situated on the edge of the delightful small town of Lucignano, parking can be tricky, but please persevere - just drive round for a while. We visited for lunch and surprisingly we had the place to ourselves. Normally this would put me off immediately but Ricardo, with his beard and bun put us immediately at ease with his good English...

Following a number of reviews, we went with friends. Quite easy to find, parking very close by and do not be put off by the lack of frontage, just a door! You can eat inside but the garden is a feature, but take some mozzie repellent although the restaurant did put out a number of citronella candles which did seem... More

Best Caprese ever and the duck with fresh figues melted like butter. Don't forget to need to make a reservation it can be very busy
