The food was pure Tuscany. Fresh everyday from pasta to veggies. If you love to eat, this is the place.

We just went for 1/2 day, traveling out of Florence. Although you can stay at the Fattoria, we only visited for afternoon, and had a lovely time.

We drove up here especially to have a look at the working windmill but found it closed. We went into the cafe/shop bought some coffees we drank on the terrace overlooking fantastic views. We also bought their olive oil which is lovely and would have bought some of their wine, but found it a bit expensive. When we asked the... More

Slow food Tuscan and Florentine style prepared with flair, served by attentive interested staff, knowledgable about the origins and particularities of both. The food is not fussy or pretentious. The view at sunset (Spring around 8:30pm) is great and if you listen, the hush and rippling songs of the birds will make you glow. And the Serial Griller Chef will... More

This place is a must visit when visiting Tuscany (Pontassieve Italy). I went here with a group of eleven friends to attend cooking school. The owner was super friendly and came out to greet us and serve us espresso and cappuccino to start. After this we were introduce to our Instructor and phenomenal chef Michelo. This guy spoke decent English... More

Amazing place, amazing position, amazing staff, amazing food!!! Here you can taste some of the best Tuscany dishes with a chef's personal interpretation. A little expensive but it is worth. Every time I go there I go home satisfied and happy.

Lovely restaurant on a hill, with a beautiful view. Large outside terrace. They serve Tuscan food, organic and biological as much as possible. Especially great is the huge fireplace where Sergio (Serial Griller) grills the meat. Portions are large, so we struggled with the antipasti, primi, secondi, it was just too much. We went here twice while staying at Fattoria... More
