Fantastic food, excellent service, great atmosphere/views

La Sosta del Gusto, is as good as it gets. We ate there a few times and they were all probably some of the best meals we had in Italy. All the dishes were very affordable (primi about 9-13 euros and secondi about 12-18 euros). The atmosphere is great: vaulted ceilings, bricks, wine cage at one end... read more

I returned with friends a bit more than two years after our family's first wonderful experience. It was a delightful evening, and we did experience another wonderful sunset as we were sipping the sparkling rosé proffered by our server. Our Italian friends, (who are Tuscan food snobs!) reveled in every bite. They thoroughly enjoyed their bacala and a zucchini flan... More

We ate there twice during our week long stay at the Castello del Trebbio. The staff greet you with a small drink of champagne as soon as you sit. Nice touch. The menu is authentic Tuscan and the prices in keeping with a higher standard of restaurant. The items we had were all very good. The house wine was OK,... More

Wonderful location and lovely food. Spent the evening overlooking a beautiful valley, local food and wine form the vineyard at the Castle.

We stayed at a villa which is also owned by the same people who own this restaurant. We were a party of 10 (5 couples) and arranged to have our first and last dinner at this restaurant during our weeklong stay. While the food was excellent, the service was horrible. Unfortunately, the bad service so overshadowed the quality of the... More

The setting of this restaurant was wonderful, staff so helpful. Maybe the chef was having a bad night but we didn't enjoy it as much as we hoped. Confit of beef was awful and I found it very hard to finish it. My husband was the same with his and we really aren't fussy (I swear!). It just wasn't the... More

We were encouraged to arrive at 7:30 p.m. to see the Tuscan sunset from the patio dining area. That's earlier than most dine in Italy but the sunset, the food, the wait staff, the wines and the company of my partner, two sons, and their partners made for a spectacular dining experience. The chef prepared a tasting menu for the... More

They are truly artists at La Sosta Del Gusto. My wedding dinner was beyond what I ever imagined. My guests are still talking about the amazing cocktail hour and dinner. The fried sage and zucchini flour rets were incredible.

I have been going to this restaurant for the past several years and find Chef Claudio to be one of the most talented and creative chefs in Tuscany. They utilize all local ingredients, herbs and spices grown on the premises, and personally select all cheese and meat from local farmers. The location set on the Tuscan hills S/E of Florence,...
