We discovered this restaurant by accident. What a pleasant surprise it gave our family! (It was a Monday and therefore the two restaurants we went to were closed!)
We loved the fish, steak, salad, wine AND THE DESSERT! All these recommended food were awesome. Needless to say, the service was fantastic!
We hope to be back here someday SOON!
Ciao,

We happened upon the Break House on our first day, on the way from Florence Airport to our hotel in Loro Ciuffenna, near Montevarchi, Italy. We were a bit late for lunch but the manager put out complimentary prosecco, big, wonderful cold platters and these individually sized vegetable flans that were hot and like clouds in your mouth. We were jet-lagged so simply asked the waiter to bring out some local wine. The waiter, Marco, matched the food with some great, local white and red wines that were perfect. Marco made an excellent attempt to translate when necessary. We were not rushed or hovered over at all. Great time. We enjoyed it so much that we scrapped plans to eat elsewhere and had dinner here two more times - excellent wood-fire bar-b-que for the local meats one night and excellent branzino another night. Excellent wine pairings. The restaurant was busy each night both with large local families and groups of young (20's) Italians, so they pleased everyone!

My holiday in Tuscany coincided with Mothers Day date in U.K.(but not in Italy) and I was taken for a celebration meal to this lovely restaurant.
Staff were really friendly,menu had English translations,and the local food was varied, meat ,pasta and fish. I had lovely sea bass (fish is bought daily from market) everyone else had a variety of dishes and all were enjoyed. Prices on menu were reasonable but as I did not pay the bill I cannot comment on total, but as my son did not comment on receiving the bill it must have been O.K.

Took my Mum to Break House for Mother's Day. Loved it. I had gnocchi, scampi and pinenuts, really tasty. Mum had fresh sea bass and Dad had a fillet steak. All beautifully presented and the best they'd ever tasted. Fiona had fish soup and Rosie had home made pasta. excellent. From the outside Break House looks like any other local restaurant, however, the quality and presentation of the food puts it way above the rest.
