“Nice find off the beaten track”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

We stayed nearby at the Fattoria Sant'Appiano in April, 2012. Lovely dining experience. Felt like on of the family. Steak Florentine was an other worldly experience. Only locals in the joint. Doesn't get much better.

“Bad service - beware if you have a nut allergy”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The quality of the food was good but we had an unhappy experience here.

One waiter tried very hard to help us BUT
1. A second waiter was very loud and distracted the other waiters (such as shouting across the seated customers to his colleagues). He thought himself very funny .
2 this waiter also did not take our concerns about one of our party who has a severe nut allergy at all seriously - he merely made fun of it - this was very dangerous
3 The chef forgot to cook our order of roast potatoes
4 The staff were distracted by the loud waiter so much the actual service between courses was too slow for a lot of customers

“'Hidden Gem'”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We have visited Osteria L'Antica Quercia 6 times over the past 2 years and we have never been disappointed.
In May 2003 We brought our wedding party here near the end of our trip, approx. 36 people, where we sat outside in the terrace with beautiful views and atmosphere.
As we were a large group, we were happy to eat a selection of foods recommended by the owner and staff.
The food is excellent value for money, quality and flavour is truly wonderful.
Every time we have visited we are always remembered (probably due to the fact that we took over the terrace at one point).. which I have to add that 2 days after we had our large dining experience, my husband and I went back for a meal and to say goodbye - the food yet again was perfect, service and wine delicious.

May 2013 - we visited again with with 12 in our party - service, food and atmosphere great with a lovely vibrant atmosphere. Complimentary glasses of prosecco while our food arrives.
We will never miss a visit here when we are over in Tuscany. Menu - hard to choose just one or two dishes as all so lovely! local produce used, wild boar and rabbit dishes are fantastic!! The roasted potatoes are to die for!! garlic, rosemary and breadcrumbs!!
Deserts...chocolate pizzas...what else is there to add...heaven !

“Wonderful food and servers”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We had dinner here on our recent trip to Tuscany. It was one of the most beautiful settings I've ever seen. The owner and servers were charming and accommodating, even taking a chef in our party into the kitchen to meet and speak with their chef. The tab was very inexpensive for all the delicious food (and wine) we consumed. Ask for Vanessa to serve your table -- she was charming and lovely!!! I highly recommend this place.
