Il Portico sits on a corner of the main square in Greve, has a large outside area under a marquee and a long, thin interior. It was always busy and seemed very popular with parties, for birthdays, welcome home, goodbye, family anniversaries, whatever. However, they found a table for two on both occasions I tried it! Il Portico was the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in Greve in the middle of the Chianti Classico mayhem. They found us a table and we were served promptly and by very friendly staff even though they were very busy. I had a beautiful tuscan meat stew and a bacon penne and my father had a gorgeous lasagne and the... More

Il Portico is more of a local cafe than a proper restaurant. Don't expect fine dining and you'll be satisfied. I ate here for lunch and for the money it was pretty good. The wild boar parpadelle is delicious - fresh pasta that appeared home made with a rich, meaty ragu that was well balanced with a deep umami flavour.... More

we've been there a couple of days ago for dinner and had lasagne and bistecca fiorentina. the lasagne was far below average and the bistecca just average and the waiter finally forgot the vegetables. as for the food, even 2 points are a friendly rating, but i give 3, because the wine selection is really good.

We called in today for drinks after a long drive to visit Greve at about 12.30pm. We wanted drinks before exploring the town then we would have returned to il Portico after an hour or two for a meal. The older waiter came to take our order which all seemed fine and he said just drinks were fine. When he... More

The food is good and reasonably priced. It is a family run restaurant offering good service with a smile.

We enjoyed it so much, we came here twice for dinner, during our stay. Typical Tuscan food, not too pricey, delicious. Love the pasta ai funghi!

We went here after a long day of traveling to the shore. We started out as a group of 5 who had very basic food tastes. The rest of the group (4 more) showed up shortly after and although they couldn't accommodate us all at one table, the other four got a table close by. The kitchen was more than... More

I am afraid our experience is nothing like the previous reviews. Arrived at 12 with our two young children, staff very reluctant to serve us and make arrangements for prams and high chair. Normally Italian's are great with children. I had pasta with salami and wife had mushroom tag. Wife ill with diarrhoea and vomiting later in the afternoon, I... More
