I have eaten in this restaurant many times over the past years and have always enjoyed the food, wine, service and ambiance. It is located in a small town in Tuscany near Castelnuovo Berardenga. The owners are an Italian and his wife from Thailand. Both have extensive experience working in many excellent restaurants in the past such as Castello Spaltena. My favorite dish is spahgetti ala chittara. There are many excellent antipastos, pastas, and mains.
You get great value and charming service. You will want to return.

Rodolfo and Angie, live above the restaurant and are friendly and professional. The menu choices vary, and have a Tuscan base but Angie bien from Thailand, know exactly how to mix flavours and create exquisite combinations.
You must book though, because the local is small, thus very cosy.

We stumbled across Osteria Alla Villa having been driving with no clear destination in mind but hoping for a decent enough lunch. What we got was much better than we hoped. Even our somewhat grumpy three year old (he had just woken up) was won over by the charm of Rodolpho and his food. We tried several starters, pastas and a main and shared them, all of the dishes were fantastic. It was difficult to choose what to have as everything sounded so good from Rodolpho's description, his home cured wild salmon was delicious as was the Ossobuco. We played safe with two pasta dishes which our son would like and were relieved when he shunned the tagliatelle pesto in favour of ragu as the pesto was delicious and happily devoured by the adults. The atmosphere was relaxed and laid back, which seemed to rub off on our baby who smiled and gurgled all through our visit. When the bill came it was fantastic value too.

My only regret is that we found this place at the end of our holiday. I'd like to have returned to eat my way through the menu - I only spotted the cakes on the way out...

Rodolfo and his beautiful wife and chef have created a simple charming atmostphere with AMAZING food.
This is exactly the small eatery we craved! Stellar food, great local wine, phenomenal desserts and great conversation with Rodolfo the owner.
Between the 4 of us we tried pretty much everything on the menu in 2 nights.
It was all FABULOUS. It was also a great value!
You must try the chocolate souffle cake! We ate it there and then ordered more to take home....enJOY!!
