Description: In the historical Buondelmonte square, in Impruneta, more than one hundred years there is an old alimentari (drug store) where people used to treat meats for making typical salami, prosciutto, finocchiona etc., gathering around to taste these products with good local wine and having a good time. Today, we have created in the same old style, a place where, besides typical cheeses and salumi, it is possible to taste a large assortment of wines from our Enoteca (wine cellar) - more than 1000 labels - together with real home cooking. All this is dressed with good olive oil and a lot of warm atmosphere.

My wife and I ate at this restaurant in October. It was midweek and the restaurant was perhaps only half full, the remainder of the clients appearing to be locals. The food was excellent quality as was the wine – they had an a very good selection of wine by the glass (something we did not find in many of the other restaurants we ate in during our short stay in Tuscany). Service was very good, and although we declined desserts the waitress brought us complimentary chocolate cake and vin santo! Perhaps not the choice for anyone looking for Michelin Star cooking, but great for those looking for good value local Tuscan cooking away from the normal tourist traps.

Staying in the locality we ate 3 times in Antica Sosta, the food was excellent a real taste of local produce, the owners poposo was delightful, the floreentine steaks superdb and the wine no matter wahtt the price excellent. The local cold meat and cheese platter is just heaven with a glass of roese for lunch. The oteria also provided food for an event we held at our villa for 60 people, the helping were generours and the meat cheese and bruscetta reallly great, I also recommend the warm chicken liver pate and the Onion and pine nut Soup !!. In tru Itialian style the owner and his son work very hard to impress you with their food and on one night we just asked the to cook whatever they felt appropriate and all 10 people thought it was brilliant
