“Perfect Tuscan Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

My family and I ate here on two nights and we could not have had a better experience of Tuscan food and hospitality. Idyllically set with breathtaking views over the Tuscan hills, the two evenings we spent here were fantastic. The food was amazing, and Ousmane organised a great cooking class where I learnt how to cook a five course meal at very short notice. I thoroughly recommend staying here to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany-perfect for a romantic break but also for families. Ousmane is the perfect host and made our meals so memorable. This was the highlight of our holiday in Tuscany and I look forward to staying here in the future.

We travel around in Italy quite a lot and we must really say that this is a special place with special people
You can't get better accomodation anywhere and when it comes to service this place is special...
Not only is Ousmane and team are making the stay very comfortable but it's also the relaxing atmosphere that they create in this place. It isvfelt everywhere - in the lobby, the view, the open doors, the outside area...

We stayed at Palazzo Brandano from 8/26-9/4, and were just blown away by the service, food, atmosphere, scenery, and the list goes on. The dynamic duo of Linda and Ousmane made our stay truly memorable. Both Linda and Ousmane went out of their way to make our stay exceptional. From arranging wine, cheese, olive oil tastings, to restaurant recommendations nothing was too much for Ousmane to arrange. He even had us follow him in his car for hard to find tastings. Where else would you get that service?? The location is a great base to tour Tuscany with Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Umbria, etc. close by. Our room was large and spacious and nicely appointed with beautiful architectural features. The food in the restaurant was exceptional. We can especially recommend the baked stuffed zucchini flowers, shoulder of rabbit and heavenly penna cotta. Dinner on the terrace while the sun was setting or having a glass of Prosecco after a day of sight seeing was breathtaking. We could go on and on, but go experience for yourself! We will definitely be back!!!!

the hotel deserve four stars or more. There is charming Ousmane who greats a guest in any language and can arrange almost anything you want to see or do of a very good quality. The setting in the small town of Petroio is elegant without being ostentatious. Each room is nicely decorated and is only surpassed by the food. Imagine watching the sun set on a veranda above the tuscan valley then eating dinner with a rustic lantern on each table. My meal included baked stuffed zucchini flowers, perfectly prepared gnocchi and a divine penna cotta. All accented by superb wine chosen by Ousmonne the manager. Would return in a heart beat.

The service, the atmosphere, the food. It´s just state of the art. The manager/host and his staff is just right on. Restaurant/winelist is top class. The view over the hills and the garden tops it all. You will have problems finding a better place. Seriously.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite.

You will not find a better host that Ousmane, who presides over both the restaurant and B&B. We didn't stay there but got a tour of the rooms, which were so spacious and lovely in tiny Petroio. We did, however, eat there three times in two days, if that gives you any indication of how wonderful it is. Two dinners (one a pork roast wrapped in bacon plus risotto covered in truffles), one a homemade pasta all with dessert) and a breakfast-all were so wonderful and made and served with such an abundance of care. Wear your comfortable shoes to climb from the parking to the town, but then just sit back and enjoy the view and the food and the marvelous Ousmane.
