We heard fantastic things about this restaurant. It had a great and very fun vibe, but the food was average and left me feeling quite sick. I thought I like meat quite rare, but this meat was basically completely uncooked. Was left very disappointed and would not go back

If you are visiting Tuscany do yourself a favor and visit Mac Dario. Sit in the sun, enjoy a leisure after noon of good food and wine . You will not be disappointed

Tried to make a reservation and were told they don't take reservations. When we arrived it was packed and incredibly noisy. Staff seemed to have no clue of who was in our group and who was sitting seperately at our table. Meals were continuously taken to the wrong table and even after an hour in there we had to fill...

Our daughter told us not to miss going to Dario's. The service was delightful and fun with testings of lardo (who thought that would taste wonderful) and wine. We settled on a beautiful "steak" (we would call it a roast) that we took back to BBQ. The meet was so tasty - fed 10 of us and still had much... More

We visited Dario's twice, once during the day and then for dinner that same night. The tastings in the shop were pleasant enough as for the dinner, it seemed like lumps of near raw meat interspersed with a potato or raw veges. In fact, there didn't seem to be much cooking of anything. The atmosphere was ok but it all... More

Located in Panzano, this restaurant offers a piece of taste from meat heaven. The owner worships meat, so he will probably serve you all types of cuts from head to tail and you won't even notice. Lunch prices are very affordable, specially considering the portion sizes and the quality. Go for a true butcher experience, you won't regret it :)

The meat is delicious. The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming. We had lunch and would love to return for dinner. Buy the salt from the shop downstairs. Since our return, we have cooked with it and it is divine. A fantastic experience not to be missed!

While the food was good, we went for the the atmosphere that was advertised, which fell way short of our expectations. We were seated in his restaurant across the street, downstairs, no music, no creative chaos, and no sight of Dario himself. The people at our table were nice and we were able to visit a bit despite language barriers... More

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
