“Great local gem”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Very pleasant courtyard. Good menu with great local cuisine and fantastic housemade pasta. One of the best dishes was a truffled ravioli. It is worth a trip if you are in or around Ambra.

“Another great local place”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

What I love about Bacco is the consistent quality of the meat and the friendliness of the staff.

They really try to be creative with their menu and some of the starters work and some don't; so, if you want to be sure, stick with the old favourites, such as the assorted hams & salamis. However, the main courses are always great; they do the best steaks this side of Panzano and if you give them 24hrs notice, they also have a seafood menu.

Really simple looking place down a steepish hill in Ambra, but well worth the visit.

“Wonderful meal experience”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I wanted to take some dear friends and work colleagues for a fantastic meal experience. I was so lucky to have found Corte di Bacco. We were served by a most charming english waiter, the food was perfectly presented and so tasty. This, coupled with the fantastic ambience of the open courtyard where we enjoyed our meal made for a perfect evening. Highly recommended!

“Stick with the pasta”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

Came here with friends and children having read all the recommendations here and the praise from guests and staff at our hotel. We visited many other restaurants in the area during our stay and found the standard extremely high, so we expected this to be the same or even better: Not so at all. The meal started out very well with the fine bruscetta and house antipasti and the decent house wine. The pasta and lasagna was also excellent. Unfortunately, some of the meat we got for the main course (the filletto, specifically, in several variants) was nowhere near this standard; part of the cuts we got were edible, but most you could hardly cut through. In addition, some of our order was not registered and arrived when most of the rest of the party (that is, except for the other unfortunate rubber-chewing filletto eaters) were done eating and the side orders were long cold. Obviously, we were not content with this extremely unfortunate turn of events, and after hearing our polite complaints, the management compensated our €84 wasted on fillettos with... crediting a bottle of house wine! Upon further polite complaints we were told the meat was the best available in the area and to go find a pizzeria if we wanted something better! To avoid snotty arrogance (and questionable logic) such as this, continue up the hill a bit to friendly and excellent La Bottega di Duddova. For a great steak, visit Hosteria Ceccotoccami in Incisa. If you must go to Alla Corte di Bacco, stick with the starters and pasta and leave any expectations to customer service at home...

“A taste of Tuscany in Ambra”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Absolutely outstanding osteria immerse in the little village of Ambra. Very traditional Tuscan food, warm atmosphere characterized by the animated owner and a wide selection of red and white high quality wines from the Brunello di montalcino wines to delicious white wines. However even the home wine is deicious. A must, the fantastic tagliatelle al tartufo and the Pici al sugo, traditional Tuscan hand-made spaghetti. A good laugh with friend is guaranteed, ALLA CORTE DI BACCO restaurant remains a must if you are around the area.
