We expected the best and it was by far the worst meal we have had in Italy, and we have been here 10 days! The food was bland at best. The salmon appetizer was ok but uninspiring, quite frankly salmon sashimi has more taste. The veal cheeks were inedible, I defy anyone to be able to swallow luke warm fat.... More

Sure, get a bistecca and local foods while visiting Tuscany--they're excellent and put you in-touch with local traditions. However, it is possible to experience modernist cuisine at Poggio Antico. Molecular gastronomy meets Tuscan tradition: that's a winning combination. The chef has access to the excellent local produce, cheeses and cured meats, and smashes expectation.

We just enjoyed having a leisurely lunch here before a tour and tasting at the winery..We both ordered the 5 course "Revisitation of the Territory"..The food was excellent..We especially enjoyed the San Gimignano saffron risotto and the Veal Cheek with Vinsanto sauce and black truffle pearl was melt in your mouth delicious. Also the Vinsanto/mascarpone dessert sprinkled with dark chocolate... More

Food was excellent. Beautifully cooked and presented. Lots of flavour to tempt any palate. Please note that it is well outside of the town

Our group of 6 ate lunch at the restaurant following the Poggio Antico winery tour and tasting. The setting and service was excellent, but we found the food to be overrated, pricey and small in portion compared to other meals we had in Italy. The menu was a bit flowery in describing the food with phrases such as "a dusting... More

After our guided tour of the winery, and after our tasting, we opted to have lunch is the small, quiet restaurant on site of the Poggio Antico winery. The chef must take great pride in making delicacies that are unique in their presentation. The service was great and we were treated like we were the special guests of the day.... More

The lunch was probably the best meal out of "the best in Florence, Siena, and Montepulciano " not only was everything beautifully presented, but the chef created a Vegan tasting meal for my daughter. "Best vegan meal I have ever had" and the waiter was one of the best ever.

The prices are very expensive with respect to the quality of the food and the quality of the service. My "tagliata" was tasteless; in the plate of my wife, unfortunately there was a hair on the top of the meat; The location inside is not special.

I went on a vacation-capping dinner to this restaurant and was not disappointed. The service was absolutely fantastic - polite, careful, incredibly friendly. The food matched. We got a tasting menu and loved every course. There were some that were not absolutely perfect, but overall this was well-executed fine dining and an incredibly enjoyable experience overall. Pricey but worth it.
