Very friendly host with a great knowledge of a wine. Food is absolutely amazing and cooked to perfection. Typical Tuscan dishes with a modern twist!

We have had some outstanding meals here over the last few years and the food is consistently good. Vito is passionate about food and it shows, his creativity, talent for combining flavours, together with the skills of the chefs Anna and Meriem reward you with an experience to be savoured and remembered, every time. Only the best seasonal Tuscan ingredients are used, producing simply delicious results, - from the antipasti through to the dolce. The freshly made bread and breadsticks add a special touch, everything is home cooked on the premises. The standard is good enough for Michelin Star status, at a fraction of the cost. Well done Vito! Buon appetito!

L'antico borgo has a problem - its location, down a back street, and away from the view out over the countryside enjoyed by the restaurant down the hill. As a result in the summer it can be very empty. But if you pass it and no one is in there, don't be put off; it's a great restaurant. The food is rich but everything is beautifully cooked, and you leave feeling energised rather than stuffed. I won't bother trying to describe each dish - there are good photos here: http://www.dineocrat.com/2012/04/lantico-borgo-ristorante-civitella-in.html. The owner/waiter speaks excellent English (he worked for a while in Northampton) and is a very funny, likeable man who loves to give you gratis extras just for the love of good food. We went three times in a week, and took his very friendly dog for a walk afterwards. A wonderful place.

We have been twice to this restaurant recently. Both times we have had really fantastic food , good local wines and very friendly service. The restaurant is in a brick built archway let into the old town wall. The ambience is informal and delightful. highly recommended to any food enthusiast.

Left restaurant review on b&b section by accident. So duplicated on here. We ate here twice as we were staying nearby the food was fantastic and the owner passionate about it. We had the slow menu "taster" on both occasions with wine recommended by the owner. Michelin style food at a fraction of the price. Next time were in Tuscany will definitely stay at b&b just to eat there
