We found this restaurant by accident following a day discovering the Toscanna countryside, and went back 4 times.........totally scrummy!! The menu was comprehensive, we felt resonably priced, with attentive staff. The owner, we were told, makes his own wine which was delicious. Le Vecchie was one of the highlights of our trip.

We had not reserved, but they were kind enough to fit us in! The food was amazing although quite pricey and the service was very slow. I would agree with other posts that they could o with hiring a few extra waiters! Have the filet if you go! We went on Thursday and they had a live band serenading us...

Dear MIssP1971,

Thank you for your feedback, which was very appreciated. The direction will solve the problem of the lack of waiters in service.
We are glad to know that despite the slow service you could enjoy your dinner with live music anyway.
Hoping to have you again at Le Vecchie Cantine, we wish you a nice day!

We have eaten here many times over the last 6 years and it remains on our list of great places to dine with friends in Tuscany. The menu is good for every course, and the service helpful and welcoming. Don't miss the maialino or the mousse-al-mascarpone!

Great place to try tipical Tuscan specialties. Not cheap but certainly worth it. Tried only the local favourites, the pasta with truffles can be specially recommended.

We have been going to Le Vecchie Cantine at least couple of times a year in the last three years: it has always been a great experience. Nice food, good service, excellent atmosphere. This summer we have already been there twice. Pasta dishes are very good (we tried the fresh past with truffles and pappardelle with wild boar), but what we really loved was the Fiorentina steak (we shared a huge cut in four people), the baccala' a la Livornese (cod Livornese style) and cinta senese with radicchio and pinenuts (cinta is pig meat). Only disappointment the wine: red wine was served too warm, apparently because the room where it is stored gets really hot during the summer days. The solution suggested by the waiter (chill the bottle in ice) is simply wrong: hopefully next year they will have find a better solution. The restaurant is in the little town of Chianni, sitting in a quite square that could be perfect for a postcard from Tuscany. Highly recommended!
