We had dinner, was told to make a reservation, we sat outside with the rest I guess 18-20 people. The menu was not very exiting, we had pasta dishes pici with sundried tomato and chili and tagliatelle with quail, I had roasted veal with potatoes and zuchinni , espresso, sparkling water and two bottles of wine to drown this experience...

The view from the patio is like a movie set of what Tuscany would look like if painted by a Hollywood set designer - only it's real!!! Go before sunset and bring your camera. If Giulia is working that night, you're in for a double treat - extraordinary food served by a friendly face eager to engage in conversation about... More

It's difficult to review Il Convito di Curina as we were not disappointed as such, just perhaps looking for a different kind of experience. Being in the beautiful setting of the Villa Curina amongst the hills and groves, we expected a much more relaxed atmosphere than this restaurant creates. It attempts a high end menu and service which is sometimes... More

When we came we got menu and we heard there is nothing with sea food. It is disappointing when someone is recommended by Michelin guide !!!! We could choose only from half menu. Dishes was good presented and tested also good but nothing more. Price - over priced. If you ask me do I recommend them - not if they... More

I was quickly disappointed upon arriving to the restaurant when I found out they didn't have the ingredients available to make many of the dishes on the menu. The restaurant was only half full yet it took an hour to serve our food- which was poorly prepared and did not match the descriptions on the menu. The filet on the... More

We are delighted to have had you as a guest in our restaurant and are even more displeased that you did not understand that the "coffee grounds" which you speak of were actually onions carmellized in balsamic vinegar. Regarding the prawns, we are not sure what you mean, as for us it is still difficult if not impossible to prepare... More

Convito di Curina is a restaurant with a chef that has quite the imagination. Book a reservation and if its a nice evening, sit out on the terrace with a stunning view. Giorgio uses local and seasonal ingredients and puts a twist on them due in part to his extensive world travels. He has an attention to detail and a... More

Chef Giorgio Trovato was outstanding! Each evening he explained his menu of an interesting combination of tastes and presented them artfully. He quickly understood our palate and prepared a special dessert for us on our last night.

We stayed at Villa Corina and after some debate decided to eat at the restaurant on-site. We were certainly glad that we did. The restaurant itself is very nicely laid out, tables are generously proportioned and well spaced out. The large windows afford beautiful views over the surrounding Tuscan countryside. The background music was perfect, not too loud or intrusive.... More
