You need a good GPS and a very small car. It is down a picturesque small road in Tuscany. This place also has rooms to stay, the restaurant opens up on a spectacular view of their vineyard. Try all of their wines, ask the owner what to drink, you will not be disappointed. We were a party of 6 and... More

We were so happy to find this place.. it's tucked away down a gravel road on the top of a valley and when you park up you could be forgiven for thinking you've arrived at an old farmhouse. when you head down to the restaurant, you'll be blown away! The casual outdoor yet covered restaurant has panoramic views of vineyards!... More

We,a family of five, were very disappointed with la cantinetta. The view is fantastic, but the restaurant is seriously understaffed. We were seated at eight and out orders were taken 45 minutes later. We didn't get bread on the table until we asked for it 30 minutes later. We got our starters when other tables (later then us) were already... More

Been here twice before, and coming back was the only thing I had decided I had to do when we got here - even before we left Norway for Tuscany. I was satisfied again with all my courses. The missus had a bit of bad luck with some chewy bits in her main course - but she still says she... More

In two weeks in Amalfi and Tuscany, this was our favourite restaurant. Tucked away some 4km from Badia Di Passignano, the restaurant is a true hidden gem. Beautiful vista across the Chianti countryside this restaurant delivers on every front. Excellent service and superb food and wine. We had a magnificent Florentina and fresh pasta with fresh truffle and porcini mushrooms.... More

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.
