“Stumbled in and Couldn't be Happier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

My brother and his wife took the train from Montevarchi for a day in Firenze, we came to pick them up on their return and wandered around until we came upon Daniele e Riccardo. We were a bit early for an italian cena (7:30) pm but when we stuck out nose in the door and asked if we could sit, Daniele gave us a table. From there it was basically let him serve the four of us. From the House wine selection (a fair sangiovese/merlot blend witha Banfi label toughwe had a DOCG chianti for the second bottle) but antipasti misti for all plus papa pomodoro followed by a selection of pasta and a dolci platter was fabulous. DId I say fabulous, I mean fabulous. The place was busy with a party going on and the service by Daniele is very informal. A damn fine place that I highly recommend

“Good food but terrible waiter.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

I had lunch there while on a business trip. The food is very good, the cheese ravioli is amazing as well the tiramissu. But the waiter, I think that is Daniele, was not very friendly, only with his italian guests.

I returned for the dinner, at 7:45pm. Thecrestaurant opens at 7:30pm and the waiter ask me to return in 15 min as they were close. Another italian couple enter 2 min after me and they got a table. I decided to go to another restaurant.

Dear Lord, thank you for Terrible ......
I just wanted to inform you that on Tuesday 25 9, at 19 and 30 minutes we had a minor illness to a guy who works in the kitchen due to a lowering of pressione.When you arrived at about 19:30, if you remember, you may have noticed we were all in the kitchen, given the situation that I felt bad, I just preferred the restaurant open 10-15 minutes later. The Italian couple to whom you refer arrived about 10 minutes after sitting down at a table, and saw that they had understood the situation to be asked to sit and wait.
At about 8 everything was solved .. I am very sorry that you if the outlet is bad ...... for me health is ahead of everything ....
THanks for all

“Excellent Tuscan food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

This restaurant is truly a gem ! The food was the best we had during our stay in Tuscany and we would have visited it again had it not closed for a week at the end of August. The atmosphere was unpretentious and service was superb under Daniele's direction. He and his brother Riccardo in the kitchen make a great team and it shows in the quality of the food and service. We were not disappointed with Daniele's recommendations - everything was delicious ! We were also surprised by the reasonable prices and the selection of wine available. It would be worth a detour to visit this little restaurant !

“Truly amazing authentic Tuscan cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

After reading the reviews, we were looking forward to our visit here. We were not disappointed! It really is a case of sitting down and being fed! Accept the recommendations and enjoy! The antipasti platter is to die for and the pork is even better. The nicest surpise was the bill, which was far lower than we had expected. Please do not miss this feast!! Top tip - make sure you book in advance.

“An oasis in the gastronomic desert of Montevarchi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012 via mobile

Daniele, our charming host, provided us with a delicious mixed antipasto complete with assaggini of steak tartar, sausage pate and an innovative Tuscan revisitation of the falafel. Lunch was accompanied by a dry rose from Cortona and our Tagliata di Chianina was tender and full of succulent flavour.
Montevarchi has never had much going for it from a restaurant perspective... until now that is.
recommended.
