We ate at Lo Sfizio Di Bianchi 3 times during our recent stay in Gaiole. Each time the food and the service were excellent. We didn't sample starters so can't comment as we saved ourselves for puddings on each occasion. They certainly looked good though. For main courses we tried a variety of pizzas, the suckling pig, the tagliata di... More

Have visited Lo Sfizio every year for the past 7 years whilst on holiday and have never been disappointed. Can recommend the ravioli with truffle oil as well as the pasta with zucchini flowers sausage and saffron. Situated in the middle of the village the staff are friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit.

The restaurant is in the centre of a charming piazza in Gaiole. Four of us dined and lunched here (at the beginning and end of two of us doing the Eroica cycle tour) and we enjoyed everything we ate. It looks from the outside that they only do pizza, but we ate pasta dishes, and grilled meat. Then for lunch... More

Gaoile is a great little village and worthy of a visit. Lo Sfizio has a wonderful selection of pizzas with an amazing charcoal version (do try it) but many of the other dishes are average rather than superb. Service is good and it works well for families with small children.

Thank you for writing this review. Our restaurant are well known to be busy and family orientated. Which coherently matches our lively attentive service. Our "black" pizza nera is a must to try :) Regards, Fernanda & Claudia, le Titolari More

This is a great spot for lunch or dinner when in Gaiole. We love a visit here. The staff are friendly and the food well priced and tasty. Our favourite dish is the pasta with truffle oil with a side order of spinach sautéed in olive oil with garlic. Sadly on our last visit neither was on the menu (devastated).... More

In addittion to great food their homemade gelato is outstanding. On the pastas we think the ravioli with truffles is a must and the lasagna is also great as it comes sizzlung to the table.

We were there twice during a week in Gaiole. Service is good and friendly. Location on the village square is ok. The starters we had differ quite much in quality,the caprese salad was ordinary( but beatyful presented), half of the vegetable misti was overcooked while the rest was perfect, the fried suppli with cured ham was super.

Dear Bent F, Thank you for reporting your experience here. So evidently we still have a few challenges ahead and we want the team of the kitchen to perfect all their dishes. Regarding the list of wine by the glass, we must disagree with you: a selection of 7 different wines is above avarage number you can find around. Regards,... More

Dear Azduch, Thank you for this review. Bianchi family and his restaurant are in the middle of the square since 1965....We feel part of the history of Gaiole in Chianti :) After so many years of visits, it's such a shame you score us just 3 on 5. We are open 7 days on 7 until the end of September... More

Description
From 1965 In the heart of Chianti, The Sfizio Bianchi offers the possibility to rediscover specialties that represent the classical flavours of Tuscan gastronomy. In a warm and hospitable place everyone can tickle the palate with genuine dishes and the true flavour of home- cooked meals, or taste an ice -cream in the main square, which was once a major marketplace between Siena an Florence Master bakers for forty years, we have the pleasure to offer our customers indulge pastries and cakes and also a delicious thin and crispy pizza both for lunch and dinner. All this served with an inevitable glass of red wine.
