It seems to be more and more rare each year to find restaurants that provide incredible service, outstanding food, and happen to also boast a premium location in their respective communities. As an experienced traveler who is fortunate to know my way around many locations in Italy, I almost exclusively adhere to the theory "When looking for great food, leave the restaurants in the main piazzas to those who just want a view and are willing to pay for it regardless of the quality"
Ristorante Il Portico defies that logic in EVERY WAY POSSIBLE! They have created a truly enjoyable dining experience by preparing outstanding food, presenting it with excellent service, and helping their guests enjoy it while taking in the sights and sounds of the bustling main piazza of Greve.
I have been to Il Portico 5 times over the last few years, and the quality has remained completely constant. Their entire menu is authentic and delicious, and their daily specials potentially even better! The "Chianti Penne" is a truly unique entree that is always the favorite, and the homemade panna cotta, if there is any left when you get there, is the perfect way to end the wonderful meal!
Whether visiting Greve, or just passing through on the Chiantigiana, make sure to find Ristorante Il Portico for the best dining experience in town!
