As always, unbeatable!

Magnificent meat, restaurant, atmosphere and last, but not least, magnificent owner Dario Cecchini! I won't waist your time by explaning you about the quality of the meat, instead, just go. Don't miss it! Service is also perfect and the meat is cooked perfectly. I would just like to try this same... read more

Sorry had to mark it with 3 points to balance the overwhelming enthusiasm of others, but does merit 3.5. Bring your own wine. Show is funny, grilling is professional, atmosphere simple, very generous helpings, price adequate. Dario is marketing himself and his Spanish meat well. Meat is not as good as the naive visitors believe after extensive study of their... More

Don't miss it! Service is also perfect and the meat is cooked perfectly. I would just like to try this same steaks dry aged. Think that would be unbelievable!

Our group of 8 reserved a van from the Castello Di Spaltenna otherwise we would have never found this place. There were only two tables set for the night, our group of 8, and another group of 14 and that filled up the restaurant. The fantastic part is that the restaurant is linked to the butcher shop next door where... More

OK, where do we start... We visited the macelleria on a bike trip in Tuscany. Stopped there for a drink at noon. Amazing ambiance! Chianti "a volonte" loud opera music and Dario, the owner I presume, smiling and offering small snacks to everyone that comes and visit him at his butchery. But the highlight was definitely the evening we spend... More

Stopped in to have dinner, was told it was a set menu for 50 euro per person, no other information or advice offered. With so many other wonderful and reasonably priced restaurants that allow choice of menu in Panzano, decided to give this unwelcoming place a miss. Coming from Australia where good meat is available mostly everywhere, and also having... More

We had a great time, we loved the communal table set up and met some great people as a result. We were stuffed by the end and thought it was great value for money. Our favourite was definitely the beef tartar. However, the steaks were delicious and you could keep going back for more if you wanted! All washed down... More

It's one of the best experiences we have had the pleasure of having on our honeymoon! Good things to know: Make a reservation, wear comfortable pants, eat lite for the day to prepare, pace yourself and get ready to have a blast and eat the best meat ever! The staff was so fabulous and entertaining!

I've read about and seen Dario Cecchini for 13 years and finally made it to Panzano. A mix of dinner and performance art, our party of three carnivores and three vegetarians had a spectacular time. This man and his team treated us like family and the food was great. One of the best meals of my life.

This was a very interesting experience in the wonderful town of Panzano. Everyone needs to have the experience once. Dario is the perfect showman and an all around nice person. His staff are equally nice. Fifty Euro's for the meal was not outrageous by any means. The dinner was fine. Quite honestly, our group of eight foodies didn't like the... More

If you are in the area and don't go here, you are missing out. The dinner was such an experience, we had great service that was humorous and attentive. The large table allowed everyone to talk and get to know each other, but in a comfortable manner. I could drink the olive oil. Try the spices in the middle of... More
