Bar dell Orso was once the headquarter for all of us Chianti pilgrims. I have visited the place not only during the summer for last ten years but ocasionaly during the winter as well. Good atmosphere, local people, tourists treated not as intruder but as a vis major... and the food... woow. Local cold cut, solid table vine, samdwiches, solid main courses... Everything appears to be the same this year but only visualy. Pasta becomes dry, chingale in umido miniatur and dry, vine too sweet and cheepish, cake medoicre. Tourists are treated with, till now non existent, unusual coldness... the position of the bar and the fact that it is a genuine italian place which must endure the turist invasion during the summer will allweys keep Bar dell Orso high on the local restaurant scale. But for real, the place is in the crissis of identity and can satisfy only first time visitors. There are really good real italian places around, but without such good geographic position. In March 2018 i was sitting among the locals listening live music inside the bar while outside was torrential rain. The food was way better.

A humble but very welcoming trattoria at the base of Montereggioni and the best eating in the area! Traditional Tuscan fare of exceptional quality served by energetic and friendly staff. Once we discovered it we ate there three nights in a row instead of our 5star hotel 10km away!

We passed by and decided to stop for lunch. The dishes were good, and came fast. But the waitress were so bad mooded. Didnt have patience to explain the menu. In a region that lives from turism, they should treat better the tourists.

I visited this place multiple times during our stay in Italy. They serve great Porchetta and prosciutto sandwiches for 4 Euros each!

Expect a crowd of locals during dinner. So service could be a little slow but it’s worth it to have a 4 course dinner for under 60 euros.

We visited this restaurant last week for an evening meal, arriving around 6:30pm. We stood at the bar and was totally ignored for a long time, I asked a waitress for a table but she said she was busy, she delivered drinks to a table and never came back to us. The bar and waitress did not want to attend to us or even acknowledge we were there. Italian families were treated the same. Although the food was good I wouldn't recommend this place as they clearly don't value customers!
