My fiance and I were staying at a nearby hotel in Panzano. The concierge made us a reservation here, at Il Vescovino, and this became the highlight of an amazing trip. This is a beautiful family-owned and family-operated restaurant with an incredible view of sunset...(at least in August, when we went). The food was delicious and fresh. We had two appetizers - a plate of sliced meats, an eggplant dish, and for a main course a porkbelly and a chicken that fell off the bone. You cannot miss eating here if you're in the area, and you should look to time your meal up with sunset, too.More

Our family of 4 had an excellent dinner with a superb view of the Chianti region and vineyards! We were fortunate enough to get a spot on the terrace after showing up last minute. We enjoyed all of our appetizers; the zucchini was amazing! Our...pasta dishes were flavourful! Of course we couldn’t go wrong with our bottle of wine! And tiramisu for dessert! This is a small family run business tucked away in a small hilltop town. It truly is a hidden gem and the service was top notch! We highly recommend this restaurant.More

After reading the reviews we were very disappointed by this restaurant. From the moment we were greeted we felt unwelcome and unwanted. When we ordered to share (after having a feast earlier in the day) we felt as though we had ordered “wrong” when we...got glared at and were told we should be ordering 2-3 dishes per person. We most certainly did not need that much food! The dishes we shared were plenty but nothing mind blowing. We’ve had far better pastas and service throughout our stay. I might return one day but I was disappointed by this one.More

Dear jgolddc, if I recall well, you had booked a table with us and, upon arrival, told me that you have had a feast earlier and was not hungry, so you would only have one pasta dish to share and that's it. You can order...More

We booked in advance and ordered some ham to start with, then pici with Tuscan garlic and pepper (a lil spicy), pici with black truffle and grilled chicken - the latter was pretty good. View was magnificent and it’s located in an old town. Recommended!

My wife and I spend time in Panzano almost every year and have eaten at Il Vescovino many times and absolutely love it! The views over the Tuscan countryside are stunning (especially at sunset), and the food is both inventive and delicious! The family that...runs the restaurant makes you feel right at home, while providing service that is always wonderful!More

While touring the Chianti region our driver recommend this restaurant and we were not disappointed. The views were spectacular. But amazing views would be nothing without good food and service to match and Il Vescovino did not disappoint. Our meals and service were both were...terrific.More

We were walking along a lovely road on the edge of Panzano when we came upon this restaurant. The view of the valley and surrounding hills from our table was wonderful. We ordered the ravioli and it was very good. A very pleasant lunch looking...out over the beautiful landscape.More

We are currently staying within walking distance of this restaurant. Already a very small town, this place is a hidden gem! It is run by a great family who really take pride in their business. The food was AMAZING and the atmosphere was great. We...shared a lot of things but the star of the show was a side of zucchini we got believe it or not! Simply prepared but insanely good! Would highly recommend this place and we will definitely be back.More
