“Wonderful restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We ate dinner at La Parolina twice last week - the food and the presentation were exceptional each time. Appetizers, main courses, wines and deserts all were delicious! Excellent and friendly service; Giuseppe has a wonderfully dry sense of humor. Also took Romano's pasta course earlier in the week - quite enjoyable, but so glad that we made it to his restaurant. Not sure if we are staying in that part of Italy next summer; La Parolina certainly would be worth a detour.

“Just wait till you see the desserts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

A Michelin starred restaurant with a female chef. Not usual but Iside Maria de Cesare is one of them. The food and the presentation were exceptional. We went for Sunday lunch and had the Emotion Menu, which had seven courses. The egg carbonara was very unusual and fun! It was the presentation which made it all. Just exquisite. However, it was when the deserts arrived that the real show started. I have never seen such a superb array of dishes, all fun, all colourful and all very bad for one's waistline. Just great. Excellent and very friendly service. Excellent wine list. It is not cheap but for a special experience and meal then do try to go to this special Michelin starred restaurant.

“Incredible restaurant - put at the top of your list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stumbled across this restaurant after driving just 10 minutes from our hotel in San Casciano dei Bagni. The food was out of this world, an incredible experience. We had the 'surprise' menu which was listed as 5 courses but turned out to be about 7 courses of the most amazing food we have ever tasted. By the end of the meal we could hardly move! The chef came out personally to introduce herself to us which was a lovely touch - she even offered us cooking lessons! Highly recommend a trip to La Parolina

“Excellent!”

Dinner can hardly be better.
Everything tasted amazing and service could not have been better.
Prices are not low but this was the best restaurant I've been in.

“Unassuming, but Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

This restaurant had been recommended to my husband and I by the hostess at our apartment. We were told it was the best restaurant in the province, and when we arrived, it was small and unassuming. What emerged, though, was a extremely professional staff, and a passionate chef who described food combinations that sounded strange, but exciting, and blew our expectations out of the water. My experience here was by far the most memorable dining experience I've had, and worth a visit to the region, even if you're not staying nearby.
