This "vegetarian" restaurant also has a limited number of meat dishes. Vegetarian restaurants are unusual for Tuscany, and not usually very good. Sparbacipolla is EXCELLENT ! All recipes are original to the trattoria, and every one I tried (I dined there with friends on several occasions) are delicious. If you wish a break from the classic Tuscan dishes, and ever...

We had done wine tasting earlier in the day and we were told we should visit SB. The atmosphere is inviting. Our Italian language skills were solid and the staff was sweet and politely helped us when... More

I am not used to eating organic and vegan cousine, so I admit I am not an expert. But I think that people should try this kind of food, and this restaurant makes great dishes with vegetables and whole foods. The vine was very smooth, little sweet, also organic. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing and cosy, also... More

Fabulous, friendly staff, wide varieties of meals, organic, vegan and vegetarian Menu written on a chalkboard but staff able to translate perfectly, quite pricey but worth it for good homemade vegetarian food!

Sbarbicapolla Biosteria is a name which just doesn't roll off of the tongue easily, but you'll remember it for the delightful Foodie dishes which you enjoyed there. Has an inventive menu which highlights fresh organic produce prepared in memorable style. Also some great meat dishes for we Carnivores too. Enjoy. ...

Every time we travel to Italy we make sure to have at least a meal in this fantastic osteria. We love the appetizers and the many many vegetarian dishes. Plus Chiara always recommends the best white wine for our meal.

Must eat place in Colle di Val d'Elsa. Surprising and maverick dishes made from local and organic products. Great atmosphere and very helpful staff who was able to explain their menu in perfect English. The place seems to be popular also among locals so booking on Friday / Saturday evening may be required.

After a week of meat-based dishes, what a refreshing surprise! Reasonably priced, wonderfully presented, top quality restaurant, with healthy organic locally and ethically sourced ingredients! Bravo chef Zak and owner Chiara. Interesting high level wine list. Can't wait to return!

I had a dinner many times during my studies in Siena. I think it's an interesting restaurant which offers a lot of vegetarian plates.
