Returned to il Fornacino, first time since it changed ownership. Delighted with the quality of the food, friendliness and helpfulness of the team, all of which which certainly place this restaurant just a bit above your usual, traditional restaurant. Good value for money as well and we will return.

We just got back from a memorable meal at IL FORNACINO. Lovely restaurant, exciting and original menu, delicious flavours, great service and overall just totally spot on! All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed every course as it was unveiled. Well worth a drive a little out of your way if you would like to taste incredible food with a perfect... More

This restaurant has a new management since 2 years. Already on the phone while booking a table, one could anticipate the kindness of the service. It was fully confirmed during our dinner: excellent service, not too fast, not too slow, very kind and professional. We have been recommended some wines to drink and enjoyed every bit of the evening.

Exceptional food and service at this small but wonderful Italian restaurant in Tuscany. The ravioli pasta dish just melted in your mouth and tasted simply delicious while the roast suckling pig, which was unique in my dining experiences, was so good, I went out of my way to compliment the chef before we left. The atmosphere was friendly and hospitable,... More

So here I was hoping that our next stop might have something other than the usual fare... salt-less bread, mediocre pasta, etc. Seeing as how all of Tuscany was taking the usual afternoon nap, we decided to call ahead and were told to stop on by (everything else was closed, everywhere, including Il Fornacino). We, a hungry tribe of seven... More

It was surprising to find this amazing restaurant so far from the tourists path. The carpaccio (salada) was aged for twenty days and it was easily the best we ever had. The mushroom soup and the 24-hour-cooked beef cheek (in chocolate au jus) was phenomenal. Let's not forget the "cold cappuccino" pana cotta... unforgettable!

Made a booking online for Monday night at 8pm, although looked as though there were a few walk ins and space in the restaurant. We recognised Luca from the pics on the website, and he was our waiter all night. Lovely restaurant, loved the personal service from the chef - very friendly and warm. Food was beautiful - everything down... More

This is an update to previous reviews I have made for this restaurant in the past few years. The restaurant is located in Guazzino on the main street and is wheelchair accessible. I am happy to say that it is just as good this year as it has been in previous years. The new owners, who took over several years... More

Our first trip to Tuscany and we were fortunate to find our way to Luca Bini's restaurant near Sinalunga. Luca is the owner/chef/host. This is his first restaurant, having previously worked for ten years at the venerable La Chiusa. The food that Luca brings to the table is superb, and the attention that he obviously gives to preparation and presentation... More
