Description: Creating a cooking philosophy cannot be done in a short time. Susanna and Fabrizio to build their culinary definition started off from family tradition; thereafter their aim partially changed reaching a new balance between tradition and innovation. Of primary importance for them are a continued research for quality and the bond with the territory, without neglecting creativity The dream was "to open a restaurant where to go with pleasure to eat": thus a corporate executive - Fabrizio, and the manger of the family farm - Susanna, both with a passion for good food, turned into "a host and a chef" . The opportunity presented itself with the visit to the property that shortly after would have become, the home of "The Goccino" restaurant: a love at first sight, for the special environments that characterized it and the superb terrace overlooking the Val di Chiana. The business started off as a wine bar, to turn during the first few years into a charming restaurant. It began with Tuscan f

Everything other reviewers say about the food here is true. We had a great table at the terrasse overlooking the Tuscan sunset at 77F. A complementary sip of pink sparkling wine together with an amuse and the best grisini ever were promises of great things to come. When we ended having desert at a near by gelateria it was because we felt a little ignored throughout the evening, having to work for their attention when we needed it. Admittedly, it was a very busy night for them, but they should be used to it.

This restaurant takes pride in everything they do. From presentation and taste of each dish to the listing of all the vendors they purchase from.. We arrived without notice driving back to Rome 13 people in all and the restaurant was not only eager to cook for 2 gluten sensitive members of our party but provided them with rolls and bread sticks made for them. From the gnocchi with truffles to chingale over pappardelle it was amazing. The house wine served was a 2007 regional chianti. The bill was presented with a print of the restaurant to take as a remebrance. Small town but the biggest surprise of the trip.

This restaurant has it all: Exceptional food, service and atmosphere. If I would have to choose one place from our two-weeks tour de Tuscany, Il Gioccino would be the one! It was so good that we had to eat there two nights in a row :)

Tip: If you do not have a big "wine budget", just be sincere and ask a waiter to recommend the best value-for-money wine - You'll be positively surprised :)

We had several restaurant while on holidays in the hilltop Lucignano area and Il Gocchino is one to be spotted out. Very nice terrace, the excellent typical tuscan food was nicely elaborated and presented and the service was very professional and friendly. A place we can recommend.

Local produce served with imagination and skill., and an excellent wine list. Pleasant but unobstrusive service in an unexpectedly attractive setting. Walk through the gloom of the main, indoor part to the delightful terrace, full of flowering plants smelling delicious, and with an unbeatable view of the valley beyond.
