Here you realise that Dario Cecchini offers much more than great steaks. And actually, more than beef, despite the name seems to indicate an exclusive meat place. Grilled vegetables are wonderful, same as a simple and creamy (but no cream in it, of course!) pappa al pomodoro. Amazing the musetto, the tenerumi and all the lesser known parts of the... More

Yes, yes...Dario is a character. Certainly there is too much meat to eat. That horn was very loud. Parking was a challenge. But THIS is what I really loved about this experience: the communal table. We ate with couples from Italy, France, Austra, Spain, and Canada. There is no other experience we have had in Italy where this variety has... More

It is a little scary to be writing this in light of the glowing reviews this restaurant has received. Tom and I planned for and researched our trip to Tuscany for many months. Based on the wonderful reviews and the fact that Anthony Bourdain had eaten there, we excitedly made reservations. We knew that if we did not go, we... More

We actually found this place on a wine tour. I was a little apprehensive about coming to a butcher for lunch but was very pleasantly suprised. They sat us in a room covered in old stone which was great and the meats were all very tasty. It seemed as though there were at least 4 kinds of meat and the... More

Loved it! Hands down, the best restaurant vibe I have been to in a long time. The place exudes the bigger than life personality of its owner Dario. Truly a warm and inviting soul, we could not have felt more welcome. If you like meat...well BEEF, then you should make your way to Panzano. About 1hr 30 min from Sienna... More

t is a bit of a tourist destination to go see Dario the Butcher and have one of his nose to tail dinners but it is a very fun night and the food is very good. You start in Dario's butcher shop where you drink wine and taste some of his salami and other treats while Dario stands behind the... More

Our local friend knows Dario the butcher so we were so lucky to have met him prior to dinner reservation. He's definitely a big character and has such presence. Totally friendly and working behind the counter slicing meat into perfect slices with knife (not a slicer!). They have a spread of food of products that they sell at the shop... More

Unlike most of the guests to this restaurant, we did not know how famous and popular it is before we dined there. We were on the way back to our B&B and felt hungry, so stopped to look for a restaurant. It was 6:30 PM and most restaurants were not open yet, but some people seemed to gather in front... More

I was glad that I have a chance to dine in this restaurant in Panzano in Chianti. It was an amazing lunch menu that one could taste different parts of the beef in one go. Broiled beef, roast beef, braised beef.....it was such an abundant feast which could not be easily forgotten. The style of cooking was just like the... More

Dario and his meat is famous all over Europe. He has three eateries in the town each serving different cuts of meat, mainly beef but some pork, from his shop(was surprised the beef came from Spain). Communal eating is the theme with long tables that you share with your fellow diners. Whilst the food was good and reasonably priced with... More
