“So good , we ate there a few times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Andrea Rocca was our server, what a great guy! Between our broken Italian and his better than average English we managed.The language challenges did not matter the food spoke for us all!
These people are so kind and helpful We sat out on their patio for lunch not realizing they close at 2 and reopen at 5pm for dinner. They told us to stay enjoy the shade!
The pizza was fantastic. Even better was the homemade sausage and farva beans...wow!!
The wine, the patio seating, the people ,the food all a great combination!

“Great family restaurant with amazing desserts!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

My family and I visited Dimicla several times during our week long stay in Tuscany. Each time the food was delicious and the service was warm and friendly. We had pizza, various pasta dishes and desserts that kept bringing us back for more! The profiteroles and tiramisu are simply amazing! The owner is super friendly and makes you feel right at home. Definitely a must try while in Loro Ciuffenna.

“Highlight of Loro Ciuffenna - enhanced by Andrea's vibrant welcome.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were staying in the quaint village of Loro Ciuffenna for 7 nights, 11th - 18th August 2013. Being such a compact rural village, dining options were limited to just a handful of restaurants. We tried them all. 'Dimicla' is by far the best restaurant in Loro Ciuffenna, and one of our favourite Tuscan experiences. Our experience was made very special by the front-of-house (and owner) Andrea. Andrea reminded me very much of Roberto Benigni's character in Life Is Beautiful (La Vita e Bella) - vibrant, friendly, passionate about his business, kind. The rest of the staff were hard-working and attentive. We visited Dimicla at least 5 times during our stay, sometimes for lunch, sometimes for dinner, sometimes for both! Each time we visited, Andrea recommended something different from the menu and looked after us as if we were his only guests - even taking a seat with us for a quick chat. I personally loved the Bistecca di Maiale (grilled pork) and Salsicce e Fagioli (sausage and bean stew). My girlfriend enjoyed the pasta and gnocchi with the pesto or porcini mushrooms (grown in the hills overlooking Loro Ciuffenna). On our last night before moving on to Siena, Andrea treated us like royalty - bringing complimentary red wine, dessert wine (Florio 1833 Grecale Moscato Sicilia), limoncello and THREE desserts! We particularly enjoyed the chocolate and pear tart. We made sure we tipped Andrea and his staff well before leaving with a warm handshake and a hug. I would return to Loro Ciuffenna just to re-visit Andrea and his fantastic restaurant Dimicla. If you visit, please go out of your way to have a conversation with Andrea - you will not be disappointed!
