During our stay at Il Falconiere Spa & Resort we had to try out the awarded restaurant. The service was excellent but the food was not as superior above average as we expected. A Michelin star is not 'just' a permission to apply very high prices; it is an obligation - at every occassion - to exceed expectations and deliver... More

If you noticed... This restaurant has a Michelin Star and it is for a reason - several reasons. The pre- dinner cocktails served upstairs were prepared perfectly with some tasty olives and snacks. The wine list is more than extensive as are the menu choices. The service was of course sublime - quietly ever prepared and immediate but not pressured.... More

My partner and I loved this restaurant, everything about it was sublime; the location, service and an impeccable menu. We ordered the stuffed zucchini flowers, chicken liver pralines, and duck with cherries. Sensational!

Chianina beef tasting menu, with local (Baracchi Brut Trebbiano and Ardito) wine. Courses are not very large, but there are lots of them. If it is hot enough to sit on the terrace, definitely do so - the view is worth it.

If you don't mind shelling out a good amount of cash for the perfect romantic evening, this is your spot. Located on the grounds of the gorgeous Baracchi winery (the hotel is gorgeous too), you truly can't beat the ambiance. The menu highlights creative uses of local ingredients to create some big flavors, and the service is of the highest... More

We enjoyed our evening immensely! The atmosphere was spectacular, the cuisine was delicious (creative and well executed) and the service was superb. They have an excellent wine list and a cellar that's worth a visit. Arrive early enough to walk the grounds as they're simply gorgeous with stunning views of Tuscany.

We stayed at the hotel and decided to have our first meal there. We both ordered the beef tasting menu. It was pretty average. The best items were the beef tongue and the dessert. The pastry chef is truly exceptional. Expensive but not worth it

Description
It is actually very easy to cook well and obtain great dishes if one begins with first choice ingredients, that's what we do every day, searching for the best products is our philosophy.
We are mentioned by the most authoritative Guides with excellent evaluations.The restaurant is housed in the old lemon house with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola. It is famous for its cuisine focused in the territory. A pleasant experience made of many different details: a refined and bright ambience, the terrace with its breathtaking view of the valley for romantic dinners, a superb Tuscan cuisine and a vast wine list with the Baracchi wines as well.
