There is no chance you will find this restaurant unless you know where to go. Querceto is hidden deep in the forrest, and the last 10 km is fields, forrest and nothing else. The restaurant is small and their menu shows ambitions. We had the the most wonderful deer, some very decorative starters and the best cheeseplate I have had... More

Enjoyed a surprisingly excellent lunch in this perfect setting in the ancient Borgo of Querceto. Flavours of the food demonstrated skill and depth and that real care had been taken with the combinations of taste and texture. All truly authentic options of their season, served by friendly and professional staff. Very good value !

There is a tasting menu along with the excellent a la carte menu and and extensive wine list. The food was so... More

A very nice restaurant in a beautiful setting. The kitchen is pure, original and good. Hunting is big around Querceto and you will find a lot of game on the card. There are no fish and few vegetarian dishes. I like the (rather small) size of the portions. The service is pleasant and efficient. Certainly a restaurant that I can... More

A truly wonderful restaurant in all respects. We were given a lovely table outdoors on a beautiful Tuscan autumn day. The quality of the food was excellent and at incredible value for money prices.

We were staying at Castello Ginori di Querceto and with only one restaurant in the village (Locanda) felt that was this was an option if we weren't inclined to travel elsewhere to eat. We soon realised that Locanda is an excellent restaurant in its own right and by the end of our holiday were eating there by choice rather than... More
