We were excited to eat at a Dario Cecchini restaurant. Everyone we spoke to about Tuscany told us to eat there. We were early so appetizers and wine were served gratis in the butcher shop. There was Dario. Unmistakeable since his picture is right there for all to see and his books and his reviews, etc. He was vey generous... More

When we walked into Dario's butchers I Was blown away by what I saw and heard. A mixture of music, people talking, staff taking orders and explaining the cuts of beef and offerings and over the top of everything was Dario Cecchini's booming voice full of so much charisma I stood in awe. After this display for the senses we... More

We'd been told about this place. We were advised not to miss it. We went. OMG! This was a dining experience like no other. In the beautiful town of Panzano is a butchers shop like you have never seen. Patron and lord of all he surveys is Dario Cecchini. He stand behind his counter, occasionally blowing a huge hunting horn,... More

Folks you can keep your Big Macs and your MacMuffins. You haven't eaten a burger until you have eaten in Dario Cecchini's or Mac Dario's, the Mad Butcher of Panzano. The meat is incredible and the atmosphere unbelievable. First time we have ever danced in a butchers. Highly recommended. We enjoyed it so much we went back 2 days later... More

This place is great fun we really enjoyed our visit. I have never danced in a butchers before but the disco music was too hard to resist..... Go and enjoy this place for what it is. The food was good and very well priced. It is an experience that you will enjoy providing you are prepared to do just that-... More

The food is delicious and you feel welcome at this place. While waiting to be seated we were served with bread to dip in olive oil and other delicacies prepared at the meat shop. There are various menus to choose from depending on your appetite but a visit to this place is definitely a must for meat lovers. Although I... More

Yes 5 or 6 courses of meat seems extreme but it was delicious. And sitting with other people from all over the world was totally fun. We did visit the butcher shop later in the week to pick up supper supplies for our farm house and really enjoyed the Chianti sampling (well ok more than sampling), cured meats, bread, olive... More

Let me start by saying that I completely understand what the allure is at Dario's. The experience is part comedy show, part educational, part modern-day opera, part meat-lovers extravaganza. Sure it's a fun night out and the meat is delicious but quite honestly, I can't enjoy 8 courses of meat. Maybe that's my problem. Would I return again? No. I... More

Veggie lovers beware. This is the best place for meat. Especially Florentine steak. If you have a group and want a exciting night then come here - the waiters are entertainers, the food is great, the music is loud.

After all the hype we made the journey to visit Mac Dario from Fieosole. Too be honest we were underwhelmed by the welcome and the the vibe was too touristy. So we sat down, listened to the spiel and then decided it wasn't for us. Very disappointing as expectations were high, but to be fair we left before we committed... More
