Fantastic food and a great atmosphere. The tagliatelle with mushroom and truffle oil is to die for. Favourite restaurant in Tuscany so far on our trip.

This must be about the 6th time we have visited Grappolo Blu. The owner gave us another rude greeting - at was as if we had offended him. He was gruff with us, so we tried to be as pleasant as we could and soon...More

Recently we established that the Italians want to make the cuisine very special. We as tourists love the freshly made pastas with tomatoes kissed by the sun and all local fresh ingredients. It’s been very difficult to find an original Italian restaurant, but this is...More

The wine list is a book 3” thick! We found wine by the glass at the back of it! Drank nice Brunello and I had prunes wrapped in bacon (Lardo) with goat cheese and arugula. 5 star. My husband had pasta (always) and liked it....More

We went to Ristorante Taverna del Grappolo blu with 16 other people while on a vineyard tour. We were late to our reservation but still greeted with a smile. We shared many dishes, all of which were delicious. I enjoyed each of the pasta dishes,...More

Disappointing after reading mostly positive reviews. The restaurant setting is superb (especially if you get one of the tables outside with the phenomenal view). Food was excellent, wine superb but service didn’t match. Only two waitress’s looking after the entire restaurant and they were run...More

We were left unattended for half an hour, no one asked us about anything and they were seriously understaff. I do not recommend the service and I’ll let you guys judge their food and ‘special Italian attitude’ Viola!

In spite of being full and busy, the food and service was excellent. A vast selection of wines were available at reasonable to astronomical prices to entice the wine buffs.the food was both interesting and well presented. Clearly, it is important to reserve a table.

I didn't realize it was a Michelin recognized place until we got there. Owner was all business but warmed up later. Gnocchi was good, pasta with pesto like sauce was good. Special was tripe. Turned out to be very good. I had to spice it...More

It was extremely busy for dinner. Very loud, poor service, likely as so busy. Food very mediocre. Would stick with the pici, rather than meat dishes.
