I hadn't been to La Vigna in over a year, but I remembered it quite well for the high quality of its steak. I was thoroughly disappointed on my last visit. Even though our steak was presented as Fiorentina, it was sourced neither from Chianina nor from Maremmana meat (which is misleading, to say the least - especially in Arezzo). Furthermore it was cooked to death, even though we had asked for it very rare. The antipasto toscano and the porcini mushrooms were ok (save for the fried ones: the batter was too thick). We let management know of our issues with the meat, and they were proactive in trying to improve the experience.

La Vigna used to be one of the best places for Fiorentina steak in Arezzo. I hope they will get their act back together.

Easy to find opposite train station and tourist office. Doesn't look much from the outside. Restaurant consists of three dining rooms , try to book a table at the farthest room where the large open bbq fire is situated and creates the atmosphere for your dining experience. We were a group of 6 and selected steaks which varied in type and size. The T Bone steaks were huge but he will cut a small or a big one depending on you appetite. We also chose a a stiploin steak, wonderful flavour. The chef cuts the steaks from a huge piece of beef on display, he then presents the cut to the table for approval before cooking it to your taste. He also cooks chicken, lamb etc. One of our group a vegetarian ordered grilled vegetables which were varied and well cooked. Separate orders of spinach cooked in garlic and French fries were ordered. Restaurant decor is red and white check table cloths, real bistro feel. Waiting staff a bit serious but the cook made up for it with his friendly and informative advice. Recommend you go with an appetite!
