Beautiful place, the garden area in particular is very pretty. Great local Tuscan food and wine. Highly recommended. So much so, that you do need to book for a Saturday night - we tried to book on the day at lunchtime and it was already fully booked. 4 of us ate there several times, and we all had different dishes each time - every one was a success!

The restaurant Casa Masi is quite popular and will require a booking in the evenings. Menu is meat based, just one fish. Good fish/lemon pasta. They are generous with the truffle shavings, but they are quite dried out already and don't taste much anymore. The bistecca Fiorentina (a 1,2-1,4 kg T-bone) comes with a choice of two different meats. We took the better one at 55 Euro per kg. Very good; it is served very rare. just order some side dishes. with so much meat no starter required.
good wine list, ask for recommendations.
two pages of sweet wines (all per glass)
good desserts (ask for the menu as they have so many); can recommend ice cream as well as ricotta cheese. chocolate cake was pure chocolate (too much)
Good kids menu

My wife and I have eaten at Casi Masi four or five times, and we were both amazed every time. On two occasions, we had extended stays at Il Lebbio, an agritourism apartment facility about two miles from Casi Masi [Il Lebbio is also fantastic, a wonderful place to stay].

On our first visit to Casi Masi, I stopped in the afternoon of the day we wanted to dine to see about a reservation, as there were eight in our party. I chatted several minutes with the owner. We both noted instantly that we were look-alikes; both of us having long white hair, beards that were also flecked with more than a little white, very ample girths [mine far more ample, however], and reading glasses hanging from chains around our necks. We hit it off right off the bat.

That night we were seated promptly at a sumptuous table already spread with breads, cheeses and charcuterie. The owner took care of our table the entire evening. We fumbled a bit with the menu, and finally the table agreed we would let the owner choose all the courses and the wines. This worked out terrifically; the dinner was magic for all eight of us. Not only did the owner send out wonderful foods and wines, but with each new item or bottle, he provided a great deal of information about what we were about to eat or drink.

This meal is the most memorable meal my wife and I have ever eaten. The ambience, the service, the food, the wine, the company, and the gastronomical commentary made this meal amazing. Whenever we see any of the other six with whom we dined that evening, our dinner[s] at Casi Masi always enters the conversation—with awe and rapture.

Over the next two weeks of our stay, we ate there two more times; and a few years later when we were again staying at Il Lebbio, we ate at Casi Masi again at least twice.

This is an amazing restaurant with amazing food, ambience, and service. I recommend it highly, very highly.
