“Only place open in Vinci on Monday night but good food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Enter from the street go down 2 floors go to the back and sit on the mini terrace (3 tables only0 plenty more inside. Surprising location and nice food served in a warm and friendly way as if you are in the owner's home! Good pasta & antipasti, overall good but not special

“Cute hidden terrace and cordial service”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This Restaurant is really a hidden jewel. When entering the front door one wouldn't expect such a charming Restaurant, as this is hidden downstairs. There is only a small room filled with tables and a small terrace with 3 tables.

However, the athmosphere is great and one gets the feeling to have left the touristic flair or the city outside. The menu is quite small but the food is good. Also the waitress was so charming so we enjoyed our lunch very much at this Restaurant.

Can recommend enjoying a meal at this place!

“Best in Vinci!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Having stayed in Vinci now on 3 separate occasions totalling more than a month, I can say hand on heart this little unassuming Restaurant is the best in town!

From the front it is a small shop, and on entering you will wonder if you're actually in the right place! However halfway down the left hand wall a staircase takes you down to the restaurant below. The restaurant is one main room, but with the added benefit of a large balcony for alfresco dining and the magnificent views below.

The service from the moment you walk in is superb, and the food is delightful. This time around we were a party 9 and sat inside... For Primi we had Mushrooms and Pate which are served on candle lit burners which gently heat the food and are served with a mountain of bruschetta... Secondi was sliced steak on a bed of rocket and parmesan perfectly cooked and mouth-watering!

The local wines complimented the food perfectly, and were great value too! To sum up... If you're in Vinci, make this one of your dining choices!

“5 nights in Vinci, 3 meals at Il Ristoro!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We absolutely LOVED this restaurant and everything about it. Mariela was so unbelievably kind and the food was fantastic. It was perfect. We would have gone every night if we were not out visiting Pisa and Firenze. The food was tasty, reasonably priced and we walked out stuffed and happy each night. If you are in Vinci or anywhere nearby, you must go to have dinner here!

“Sempre buonissimo!”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have been visiting this restaurants for the past 14 years. The service, food and value has always been 100% Mariela, Maurizio and Simone have a wonderful authentic tuscan restaurant. They are so hospitable and also delighted to see us when we stay in an agriturismo nearby. We can recommend everything on the menu especially the vitello al limone, tiramisu and limoncello. Grazie mille from Mr Martin and Mrs Susan
