We arrived late at our villa in Cetona, and our host, knowing we were hungry, called Danielle. Saturday night, busy night. Danielle looked after us - 2 ravenous adults and 3 travel weary children. Perfect Bistecca, accompanied by a local IGT wine. Brilliantly priced with an amazing atmosphere. We ate 4 times in the 3 weeks we stayed locally, and each time were looked after with a supreme mix of courtesy and a lovely familiarity that comes with a few visits. The pici is fantastic too. Thanks Danielle - we love your place!

I visited this wonderful restaurant two years ago and on returning in September the experience was every bit as good.
The young chef, a lady is a fantastic chef and on the two occasions I had a meal there on this trip the food was quite simply outstanding. They have an extensive wine list to fit every budget.

All in all a memorable trip

We happened to be in Cetona and we found Osteria del Merlo. We had a wonderful and delicious lunch and met the owner, Danielle. This is a restaurant that will be on our list of return to places.

We ate here three times in our week at Cetona, it was so good we kept going back. Every meal we had was as perfect as the last.

Wonderfully welcoming owner, always greeting with a smile and happy to offer advice on his amazing selection of wines.

Lovely location, superb food, friendly host, great wine, and such good value. We couldn't keep away.
