We met with friends for lunch in this restaurant on a Saturday. The place was full with a good mix of Italians and tourists. The location is fabulous, the price you have to pay is a couple of kilometers on "strade bianche". Very nice view from the terrace, friendly and helpful staff and delicious food! Housewines are excellent.

Location and view very pleasant, although the dusty road is punishing. Respectable wine list at quite high prices. Food simple and good. Service was attentive, and finally Italian opera songs. Expect Toscana food such as bistecca alla Fiorentina.

I originally discovered this place while completely lost in the Tuscan hills above Greve in Chianti 30 years ago and made a pledge to myself to return for my 60th birthday. True to my pledge, I did just that with my sons, daughters and family and we had a wonderful meal and also discovered an equally wonderful place to stay... More

Beautiful setting and service. Food was incredible and it was an adventure to get to it! It was recommended to be by an excellent restauranteur from my own town. Such a treat to get there...and the drive up was a bit "hairy" but its just because its an unpaved road and a bit narrow. Loved it and the service!

View and food was amazing. We had the caprese salad, brushetta, pici with wild boar and tiramisu. We would go back and bring friends. Service was a bit stuck up. The road to the place is a dirt road.

Delicious food, excellent service, beautiful setting. It was a bit of a drive through rugged, twisting roadways - a wild boar ran across our path as we were driving there - but well worth it!!!

We were recommended this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. It's along an unpaved road and you do begin to wonder if you're ever going to arrive but persevere,- it's worth it. The setting is amazing,- looking over unspoilt countryside of hills, vineyards and a couple of houses. We had booked and arrived early but we were warmly welcomed and could... More

This restaurant was recommended to us after we visited their sister restaurant, La Castellana in Grevi, Chianti and fell in love with it, so much so we visited it 3 times in 6 days. We really thought the menu might be the same and ambiance but were amazingly surprised. The view and ambiance at La Cantinetta is what movies are... More

We arrived a little early and were treated so well. The staff at this restaurant excel at putting guests at their ease. The food was outstanding and the Beef Carpaccio with truffle was a dish to be savoured and enjoyed. The grilled pork ribs had just enough fat to make them tasty and they were grilled to perfection. The Merlot... More

Wonderful restaurant with a breathtaking view and nice ambience. The restaurant offers excellent steak. You can choose your size of the meat and they charged per 100 gramm. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. We had great dinner there and enjoyed it very much. We highly recommend La Cantinetta di Rignana.
