This is a great spot for lunch or dinner when in Gaiole. We love a visit here. The staff are friendly and the food well priced and tasty. Our favourite dish is the pasta with truffle oil with a side order of spinach sautéed in olive oil with garlic. Sadly on our last visit neither was on the menu (devastated).... More

In addittion to great food their homemade gelato is outstanding. On the pastas we think the ravioli with truffles is a must and the lasagna is also great as it comes sizzlung to the table.

We were there twice during a week in Gaiole. Service is good and friendly. Location on the village square is ok. The starters we had differ quite much in quality,the caprese salad was ordinary( but beatyful presented), half of the vegetable misti was overcooked while the rest was perfect, the fried suppli with cured ham was super. One night we... More

Dear Bent F, Thank you for reporting your experience here. So evidently we still have a few challenges ahead and we want the team of the kitchen to perfect all their dishes. Regarding the list of wine by the glass, we must disagree with you: a selection of 7 different wines is above avarage number you can find around. Regards,... More

We have eaten here over the years. It is in middle of the village, good for people watching. Food is good, prices reasonable.

Dear Azduch, Thank you for this review. Bianchi family and his restaurant are in the middle of the square since 1965....We feel part of the history of Gaiole in Chianti :) After so many years of visits, it's such a shame you score us just 3 on 5. We are open 7 days on 7 until the end of September... More

We had lunch here one day and the pizzas were good, but not amazing. Tried to go back another day when it was raining but all seating is outdoors and not enough rain cover (as with everywhere else in Gaiole!) ended up at il Papavero up the hill, much nicer!!

Dear milica0207, thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. Comments are generally positive on our pizza: we use high quality products and the dough is bumped up carefully ... obviously all tastes are different. Il Papavero is a lovely place to eat, but it is also true that both venue and menu are completely different and therefore... More

It was a Monday late and we were hungry. Not much was open after 9 and we didn't want to spend a fortune. We called and the restaurant was extremely close so we were already in good shape.

We enjoyed a quick lunch here with salad and pizza. They also have very tempting cakes and pastries. Pleasant location in the broad pedestrianised street of the town.

Description
From 1965 In the heart of Chianti, The Sfizio Bianchi offers the possibility to rediscover specialties that represent the classical flavours of Tuscan gastronomy. In a warm and hospitable place everyone can tickle the palate with genuine dishes and the true flavour of home- cooked meals, or taste an ice -cream in the main square, which was once a major marketplace between Siena an Florence Master bakers for forty years, we have the pleasure to offer our customers indulge pastries and cakes and also a delicious thin and crispy pizza both for lunch and dinner. All this served with an inevitable glass of red wine.
