We've been trying different restaurants while staying nearby. Osteria dell Crete didn't disappoint! We had pork chops, pici (pasta) with cheese and lemon, veal medallions, antipasti, caponata and the puff pastry with marscapone cream and raspberries. All wonderful! Definitely worth visiting again!

Great dishes which offers you a retelling of some traditional Tuscany dishes. The sweets are really a surprise. The wine list is very high level lists. You can enjoy also the aperitifs during the day: the proposed wines and dishes are really able to give you good emotions.

We rented a villa for our family down the street. Their food was wonderful (be sure to try the pasta with truffles) and the family could not have been nicer or more accommodating,even to the point of making takeout meals for 15. This is one of those small family restaurants that make Italy so famous.

You can try different Tuscany dishes and highly recommend to combine with wine. I tried ravioli with pecorino and local red wine. Wine helped to taste pecorino a lot. Try various interesting food and enjoy Tuscany dishes and wine.

I found this purely by chance whilst driving through Tuscany. The town seemed sleepy and quiet, and the restaurant looked unremarkable from the outside, but (amazingly) many other TA reviewers have also found it! Famous for its truffles, this is an eaterie plus small deli, and the menu was really interesting. Excellent salads, wine at 3 euros per glass, and... More

We were staying in the small town where this restaurant is located. We were really surprised at the quality of the food and some of the unusual dishes offered by this restaurant. The restaurant has a few curry dishes and some in our group said they were excellent. We had excellent homemade pasta, soup and mains. We enjoyed our meal.... More

We went for lunch during the truffles festival in November. When I called for reservations, there were none, but when we went by on the early side for lunch, we were able to get the last table. Everything that we ordered was absolutely delicious with a carafe of their house red, dessert and coffee. Would highly recommend.

Thank relco
