“Typical Tuscan Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We had visited Nonno Giulio 2 years and 4 years ago and the standard if anything has improved. The setting is out in the woods with good parking. We had an excellent Tuscan meal with an antipasti starter, followed by Stinko,Ossobuco, Rabbit and Ravioli. The range of wines was good and the service friendly. Prices are reasonable. Our meal cost €100 for 4. It can get full and booking is adviseable, especially at weekends

“Local place, average, watch out for tourist tax”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

This is average for tuscany. The food was ok, but noth expectional Probably pizza is the best choice. Popular place for locals.
Seating was somewhat uncomfortable due to the many insects (in the middle of the woods, terrace lighting). Also, they tried to charge us 4 times 4.70 EUR coperta (instead of the 1.7, mentioned on the menu), which was somewhat ridiculuous, given that we had a 6 EUR pizza. When we pointed this out, the lady was very aware of her 'mistake'. We were the only tourists here among 100 Italians, so I guess this was a special tax :)
Also, long wait for service
