Thank you so much for your kind hospitality. Truly authentic Tuscan restaurant with great service. The T bone steak was amazing as were our starter bruschetta dishes. We will visit you again!

We were repeat customers at Pestello during our week at a nearby agriturismo. Rabbit, wild boar, and, of course, the bistecca fiorentina were highlights. Had some great tiramisu and panna cotta for desserts. The friendly hosting and neighborhood atmosphere were the icing on the cake!

One of our favorite restaurants over our 10 days in Italy! I had the asparagus pesto and loved it! My husband’s veal dish was the best veal dish he has ever had! Family owned and operated. We went back for a 2nd night!
