“Best meal in Tuscany”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We stayed in Certaldo, Tuscany, for 6 nights and visited a few of the restaurants in this area. This was consistently the best restaurant that we found, and we dined here for 3 nights of our stay.

This is a family run restaurant, and the passion and commitment shines through. The atmosphere is very relaxed and there is a wonderful Tuscan view, make sure you get there for sunset and reserve a table at the front on the beautiful terrace.

The waitresses are very helpful when describing items on the menu and specials board. The restaurant specialises in truffles; make sure you sample. The veal carpaccio with truffle shavings was incredible!!

However, all the food was really delicious, whatever we ordered. We really can't understand the one negative review that this restaurant has, the writer must have been having a bad day!

The real deal. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

“What a great place”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went here for a family dinner this August. It was a wonderful evening. The food is first rate, and the wine list was exceptional.

“Terrific trattoria!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We had a wonderful family evening meal on the (full) terrace with beautiful views over the valley full of vineyards and olive groves! Beautiful food (especially the Il Toscana and carpaccio starters which we shared between the four of us), atmosphere and service. Even the bread basket (€1.50pp cover) was delicious. One of the two house Chiantis (a bargain €9) was from our friends vineyard just 1km along the road.

My only quibble - no Ribolita on the menu.

Only open Thursday through to Sunday and very popular - reservations necessary (they wee turning plenty of people away on a Friday)

If you want traditional Tuscan food of the highest quality then Casa Chianti is the place for you!

“Like home”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Real gem in the Tuscan hills. Family-run, people cooking and serving with heart and soul. They take all the time to explain the menu. Really great food. Best is to choose the specialities from the blackboard. Excellent priced. Populair place, so be sure to make reservation. Although the restaurant was full, it was not too loud. (And no disturbing music, thank you!)

“Excellent family run restaurant”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Beautiful food, everything so fresh and staff whom I think are mostly family so helpful. Portions very generous. If you have the selection of starters for two people you really don't need anything more to eat just a nice bottle of Chianti
