“Lovely restaurant off the Main Street”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Very nice food in an old vaulted cellar, away from the main tourist trail. Friendly staff, nice music, keen chef who came and talked us through the menu and all in all, a very nice lunch in a lovely town. Worth a 25 metre detour to get there!

“Amazing!!!”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

Exceptional food and service and atmosphere!
Interesting fusion, unique flavors, every dish we ordered was simply amazing.
The location is on a side street so the place was not crowded and we were skeptic but this was by far the best place we ate at in past years

“Excellent”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Great food, a modern fusion approach to Italian food. Tasty and local but with a fresh modern touch. The service is great and kind. We really enjoyed the evening. And.... The jazz music made it romantic.

“Perfect relaxed family friendly resto”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Food id very good and service is exceptional given that both the cook and the owner were at our table.
The menu is non traditional, bit quirky, and ambience is a mix of traditional and modern. Pleasant surprise.

2 starters
2 mains
2 glasses of wine
1 dessert

Free offered by the house
2 glasses of prosecco
2 mini starters
Second round of dessert
Grappa

And they even sterized our baby bottle in boiling water

All for 80 euros. For 60 quid you can't do anything near the above in london.

“a truly exceptional experience”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

Well - they say Tuscany is beautiful and memorable and we are just back from a few days of great food and wine, but Borgo Buio is a MUST!
Not the cheapest meal of our trip, but truly memorable. A new chef/owner who cares for you like you were his first ever customer, and food that is elegant in its presentation, creative in its construct and a real contemporary twist on Tuscan flavours.
Dont miss out on your visit to Monteplulciano - get in here and experience this for yourself!
