“Great Find in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Just got back from our trip to Italy where we celebrated 30th anniversary. Having dinner at Borgo Antico was definitely one of the highlights of out trip. The food and atmosphere was so good that we decided to go back for a second time. We loved everything from the Lemon Pasta to the Gnocchi to the Veal.

“So great we went back for seconds!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The concierge highly recommended Borgo Antico, telling us the food was truly a great representation of tradition Tuscany food so we had to give it a try. Our first visit was on a Sunday @ 1pm...for lunch. We were greeted at the door by the manager, Katia, with warm smile and a welcoming disposition. The place was packed with local families returning from Sunday services and the aroma that filled the air was heavenly. Two very good indications that we were in for a treat. Four very large courses and two hours later we emerged feeling very, very happy we made the journey! Each course was expertly prepared and tasted out of this world! Fresh ingredients...everything homemade. Warning though, don't order too much as the portion size is very LARGE and Katia will not let you off the hook...she'll (jokingly) shame you into cleaning your plate! By the end of the meal we felt as though we knew our neighbors and felt like family. The meal was so phenomenal that we returned the very next day for our last dinner in Tuscany. Borgo Antico is a must!

“Belter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

What a delight this place was, superb food, service & value. Accommodated a group of 8 of us with an hours notice which was great. I shared the t-bone which was a MONSTER! Great experience & would love to go back

“What a local find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

We were lucky enough to discover this local restaurant in Tavarnelle many years ago. Very rustic good quality pasta and meat dishes. A couple of years ago the restaurant moved locations it now offers outside dining in a lovely courtyard. Katia who runs this lovely little place speaks a number of languages, her staff are all very friendly. The pasta chef is brilliant, you get the real deal here and the prices are so reasonable you have to look at the bill a couple of times. The wine list is not extensive but all of the wines are of a good standard. Great place for a relaxing friendly and lively evening..

“Perfect Italian dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We had a very bad tiring travel day, but once we arrived to the restaurant and we got the Antipasto, we forgot everything. Typical Italian food, fresh, tasty and really nice service!
