What can I say, another really great meal at Osteria Ristorante San Vivaldo. Starters were excellent, steaks were delicious, and deserts fantastic. Staff were attentive without being in your face and as always the owner was great and friendly. Have been many times and will certainly go again. A must visit.

Very nice owner and his stuff (probably the family). Big plus. The food was very mediocre, especially for Toscana. Lasagna was not good at all, the fiorentino beef steak though was OK but nothing special. We also have some nice house wine.

Pasta with mushrooms was excellent and I also had the beans and "erbette". This is a paradise for meat eaters but I can always have a great dinner plant based. It is always a pleasure to deal with Andrea

Il Rosmarino in Castelfalfi is on a similar price level and offers a much nicer setting and dishes on a higher quality level.

A really well laid out and run restaurant, with excellent food and service. Padrone is very very friendly and welcoming, but can become a little frustrating due to the amount of whistling he does! Now such a bother in the busy summer months, but when it's quiet in the Spring it's quite grating. Had excellent ribolita, pasta and meat. Don't... More

This is a fabulous restaurant if you love authentic Tuscan food. It is full of locals which is always a good sign. The grilled wild boar is delicious. The menu is very reasonably priced. You will need a car to get here as it is off the beaten track a bit. Five stars!

This place was recommended by a member of staff who worked at Europcar when he found out where we were going in the hire car. Service was good from walking through the door on a Wednesday lunchtime.
