“Cibi nostrani in atmosfera Americana. A dream within a dream ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I made the U.S. my new home away from home ... But I always miss my homecountry Italy, my family, and the city where I was born ... THIS RESTAURANT IS, FOR ME, A "DREAM WITHIN A DREAM" cause has everything I love in one place. The decor gave me memory of Hollywood, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, NYC, (Marylin Monroe Pictures, Frank Sinatra Music...); the food is absolutly gorgeous and delicious. Authentic Italian style food!!! Last but not least: The owners!!! THEY ARE GREAT! CARING and absolutly FUN/FUNNY!!! They are always there for you to make sure everything is good and on time!!! Mr. Fulgenzi (Chef) make his own spirits with natural essence of Orange, Grapefruit and more ... and they offer them at the end of the dinners. They also sell the all battle (artisianal made spirit !!! LOVE IT !!!) This people are so creative!!! You can tell from the first second you watch around the decor to the food!!! I have been a client since 2011 and I am a regular here. Cause I love the food and the intimate atmosphere. I have been in many nice restaurants around the world and this one has something special. Everything is made with love and dedication!!! I HIGHLY RECCOMEND IT !!! I LOVE IT !!! I was here last time for "the end of the world" cause I ask myself "What should I do if this was my last day on this planet?" I take my mum (I see her only once a month in a all year) and went to "Lo Stecchetto" .... to everybody that was there last night: Cheers to a "New World of health joy happiness and money $$$" You go Mr. and Mrs Fulgenzi !!! I will be back soon ...

“Incredible gastronomic pleasure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

Upon entering the restaurant in the last week of April, the melody of Perry Como singing a Christmas carol came through the speakers. There was so much paraphenalia everywhere that there was no ledge, table top or anywhere free of nic nacs. Yet, it was apparent that regular cleaning was done asit was inpecibly clean - there was no dust anywhere! Eclectic for sure! There's nothing better than a restaurant that not only has wonderful food, but has a welcoming atmosphere.

Giancarlo prepared us an incredible delicacy of gastronomic pleasure. Platters of food were placed before us - from pizza and veggies to pasta and seafood followed by a still-warm lemon pie. Truly the pride of Tuscany; if not all Italy.

“Outstanding eating in an eclectic setting with a dynamic host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012 via mobile

Lo Steccheto must be visited when in Tuscany. No menu, Jean Carlo the eclectic owner and chef chooses the meal served in the multi room main floor of large house he resides in with his brood. Everything made from scratch. The topping on the appetizer pizza, which had a different crust than usual were incredible. The meats the rissoto with artichokes and the truffled ravioli. Squid cooked to perfection. More food than you can ever imagine comes out on plate after plate. And just as enjoyable is his array of collectibles from Jean Carlos 87 years (although he looks 60). Many of which he made himself. Don't forget to try the homemade aperitif's of all flavors. Is there anything this man can't do.

“Most amazing meal and relaxed dining environment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

Giancarlo is an excellent cook and personable owner. His family ensures a perfect dining experience. So many Americans have had wonderful experiences in his restaurant, evident by his "guest book." We really cannot recommend this restaurant enough. From the incredible food, great wine, and charming/relaxing restaurant, you really can't go wrong. My true advice would be to go, relax, and when ready to sit down tell him to bring you whatever he would like - you can't go wrong.
