“A must if you are in Greve or close by”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The restaurant is open all-day which is an advantage, especially if you are travelling not in top season. Very nice welcome by the owner, a small talk about the attractions of the place while waiting for the food (we asked for wineries that he would personally recommend and have received three different options with exact instructions as well as discount promise if you tell you are Alessandro). The food was very good, a mean REALLY GOOD. Definitely stop by Alessandro's place!
P.S: we had 1 risotto, 1 toscan soup, 1 beer and 1 glass of wine - costed us about 25 Euros (with complementary desert from the owner).
Their local bread (focacchoi, forgive me if the spelling is wrong): is very good as well.

“Simply perfect and delicious !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We discover this restaurant during visiting Chianti area. It was perfect : warm welcome (we have 2 children, 5 and 8), delicious plates (specially pastas with truffle !). You can visit the historic village Monteflorale, by night it is even better.

“Delightful country dining”

This intimate restaurant in a tiny hill town is a wonderful find. Excellent, interesting food, energetic,friendly service. We had a ball. If you're in the area, try not to miss it.

“Pleasant Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

There weren't many places to dine at Greve, so we decided to give this place a try as it was mentioned in TripAdvisor. We chose to sit outside to enjoy the fresh air and for the view. We found the food and wine quite good, and in fact better than the meals we had in Florence. We were lucky we went early as the place was full half-way through our meal. Overall a pleasant experience.

“How could anyone not love this place!?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Tuscan views. Superb cooking. Excellent service. Good wines. Sensible pricing. Any other comments would be superfluous. Go & enjoy!
