Amazing meat and amazing pasta! We had the tagliatelle with beef sauce, chicken liver, beef tartar, and the lamb. One of the few places in Italy we actually trusted to get tartar. They really know their meat and it's very cozy with such a beautiful and charming outdoor area. Best food we had in Tuscany!

We ended up in this restaurant unexpectedly and it was a nice surprise. We were not familiar with Vicchio so we did not know were to go for dinner that evening. We loved the food, it was an outstanding presentation in a relaxed ambiance. The service was very helpful and the recommended wine was great. We will go back here.

We had pretty high expectations for dinner, and sadly almost everyone (6 of us) did not like their main course. The service and atmosphere were really nice. We had two yummy appetizers (the antipasti platter and the burrata sandwich), then the restaurant bombed out. The truffle pasta was bad - overwhelmed with off-tasting, woody truffles. No one finished it. A... More

Best dinner in Italy for reasonable prices. Entire menu is in Italian, which we could not read, but the waiters were extremely helpful. Had the signature dish of Tuscany and it was excellent. My only regret is not eating there the next night.

We had the honor and pleasure of taking cooking classes with Chef Cristian at the Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort and it was by coincidence that we came across his restaurant. The ambiance was cozy and very welcoming, with light music playing in the background while we ate dinner. The staff were very friendly and kind to us and helped... More

6 months on and another enjoyable meal at this restaurant and of course a superb wine. Notwithstanding the TripAdvisor list this is the definitely the best independent restaurant in Vicchio as can be seen by the fact that it is usually pretty full even with all its many tables. I have to say that I think the restaurant needs to... More

Porta di Levante continues to shine as one of the best restaurants in the area and what a wine cellar. Again we have modern Tuscan cuisine evolving and top rate local produce resulting as always with the magic of Christian in the kitchen in the most fantastic dishes. Having had a cooking lesson with Christian at the nearby Villa Campestri... More

On a wet evening in July we had a meal with Italian friends here and the experience was mixed. After the resolution of a booking error we were given a lovely round table in the front room. A glass of white wine was given to us immediately as a welcome drink. Some of the dishes were successful, others had sounded... More

A great meal in a lovely setting. We managed to get a table outside on the terrace and had their seasonal tasting menu which was really good. The truffle featured very heavily on the menu and was a little over done but the overall quality was really good. The staff are really helpful and the owner selected a fantastic bottle... More
