We spend one night in this tiny " borgo" in the middle of the valley It is full of history due to the famous Massacre in Val Di Chiana in 1944. Just hundred of inhabitants with a marvelous location The restaurant was very good , excellent home made pasta It is worth the detour if you want a quiet dinner

A modest sized restaurant with a quiet atmosphere. The appearance is somewhat rustic, but very comfortable. Pleasant ambiance. A bit price, but the food is excellent.

It is with great sadness I discovered the wonderful restaurant L'Antico Borgo is no more. The talented young chef and proprietor Vito has closed up and left. His reputation has gone with him. The hotel next door, also called L'Antico Borgo, has opened a restaurant which is confusing because they are using the same name. I was very disappointed with... More

We have had some outstanding meals here over the last few years and the food is consistently good. Vito is passionate about food and it shows, his creativity, talent for combining flavours, together with the skills of the chefs Anna and Meriem reward you with an experience to be savoured and remembered, every time. Only the best seasonal Tuscan ingredients... More

L'antico borgo has a problem - its location, down a back street, and away from the view out over the countryside enjoyed by the restaurant down the hill. As a result in the summer it can be very empty. But if you pass it and no one is in there, don't be put off; it's a great restaurant. The food... More

We have been twice to this restaurant recently. Both times we have had really fantastic food , good local wines and very friendly service. The restaurant is in a brick built archway let into the old town wall. The ambience is informal and delightful. highly recommended to any food enthusiast. .

Left restaurant review on b&b section by accident. So duplicated on here. We ate here twice as we were staying nearby the food was fantastic and the owner passionate about it. We had the slow menu "taster" on both occasions with wine recommended by the owner. Michelin style food at a fraction of the price. Next time were in Tuscany... More
