We were staying at Iano, but had read reviews of La Terrazza, on Trip Advisor, so thought we'd give it a try.
The food is fabulous, and presentation is outstanding. Add to that friendly and helpful staff (be prepared though, their English is limited) and a warm welcome, and you have the prefect Italian restaurant.
This was our 6th visit to Italy, and this is, WITHOUT DOUBT, the best restaurant we have ever dined at, in that country. Do go!!
We visited on a lunchtime (menu is all in Italian!), and for dinner 2 nights later, at which time the menu was presented in Italian, German, French & English.
We should add that, value for money wise, we were pleasantly surprised. Let's hope it stays that way for our return visit.

Had read reviews on trip advisor before we seeked out somewhere good to eat while staying at belmonte vacanze and we were glad we found it. First visit was for lunch which was great. I had a prawn dish to start and a spaghetti Vongle for main course. My boyfriend had the onion omelette and the polenta ragu for main. The white wine was so good I bought two to take away. We had other day trips planned which stopped us going back for lunch or dinner but managed to squeeze in a couple of breakfast visits for great coffee, sandwich and pastries. All reasonably priced and lovely cheery service for the staff. Will definitely be the first place we set at when we return to tuscany.

Stopped for gas and noticed the restaurant. After some touring (San Vivaldo) we decided to visit for a late lunch. Probably the best meal we had during our two week visit to Italy.

The restaurant is new (was under construction in our 2010 visit) and part of a full service gas station but what a view across the Elsa valley (Val d'elsa). Food is freshly prepared and wonderfully presented.

Only open for lunch at the moment ( 12.00-6.00 pm) La Terrazza is in an unlikely spot at the first service station as you enter Montaione form the direction of Gambassi Terme. Most people would probably drive straight past if fuel was not required. The view is spectacular looking over the Val D'Elsa towards the hills of Chianti and the food prepared by Roberto and staff is pretty good too.There are light snacks as well as some larger dishes, including seafood, that he has brought with him form his former restaurant La Montagnola.
