The restaurant is in old farm buildings overlooking a beautiful valley. Simplicity is the key but the food is very tasty. Seasonal dishes as tasty as you could hope for in the Tuscan countryside. Our Beef was not perfect but otherwise we enjoyed every mouthful and also their own Chianti. Well worth the expedition over narrow country roads to reach... More

Can't stop thinking about this place, this was by far the best lunch spot of my trip. It's a little tricky to get to but so worth it! Made reservations in advance and got a perfect corner table overlooking the beautiful vineyards & hills of Tuscany beyond. The food was not foreshadowed by the magnificent view, everything was so tasty... More

In a remote part of Chianti, the restaurant has plenty of space to sit also large groups. Service is quite fast even if the number of guests is important. Large selection of pasta and good Chianti wine.

A typical restaurant in the middle of the toscan loneliness. You will not only enjoy excellent food, prepared according to local recipes, but you can also enjoy the hospitality and cordiality of this house. I would recommend this restaurant unrestricted.

If you love typical and regional Tuscan meals, you are here at the right and best place. Besides wild boar and osso buco in tremendous portions you can have tasty noodles in various preparations. All pastas are home-made and delicious with their individual sauces. The wine card is meeting all expectations and the prices of food and wine are well... More

This is a favourite for a sunny afternoon after a local winery visit; the mood of the place slows you down; just drink the view which is vineyard vistas, presumably sangiovese. We have tasted Chianti Classico, now near Greve-in-Chianti; so now is the time to drink more of it! Here is a great place to eat rustic, so that is... More

We toured Tuscany for eight days and ate in 16 restaurants (including the famous Cibreo in Florence. NONE could compare with La Cantinetta - so well done to you! This is what we were really looking for - so next time we will arrive at opening time to really soak up the fantastic countryside surroundings, great food and of course... More

Almost a hidden secret. It takes quite a while and unprepared road to get there. The scenery is amazing, this place is overlooking typical Toscana valley and wine hills.. Thé Restaurant itself serves local specialities at a high level of quality.. In 2 days I eat there 3 times and managed to taste almost everything on the menu! Everything great!... More

This restaurant, in the middle of nowhere, is a hidden jewel in the Tuscan landscape. The food was not only beautifully presented, but it was mouth-wateringly good. I chose a starter with truffle and burrata, pasta with truffle and to keep to the theme, a cheese sformato with truffle, my husband and children chose a more varied selection from the... More
