Our second visit. Nice setting and view. So many great dishes on the menu each executed to perfection. Attentive and friendly service. A balance between home cooking and creative fine cuisine. Wonderful value for the quality of food and wines.

They seemed to have plenty staff as almost every interaction was from a different member of staff and all were pleasant and friendly. The food was quality, local and a good selection of wines, particularly the local white was a blend of 4 varieties and very pleasant, the only draw back is that when sitting outdoors in a warm evening...

We stayed in an accommodation nearby, which was owned by this restaurant, for a week in June- which entitled us to 10% off our meals. We ate here on our first night, and vowed never to return. The service was bad- and it was clear that regular patrons/locals received preferential treatment, and trying to get anybody's attention whilst the staff... More

We had a very pleasant dinner. The food was good even though some of the dishes were a bit weird like the crespelle spinach, crescenza with orange skin in it. Very brave but I wouldn't order it again. Knowing that I was not in a starred restaurant and the location was splendid I would say it's definitely a place I... More

It was an excellent dinner during our stay in Tuscany. The food was excellent, service perfect. The surroundings are really like the country site, with olivine trees plantation. It is necessary to make the reservation. Dishes are typical Tuscany, and they serve the local homemade wine. We didn’t predict how many local people came to have a diner there, but... More

The restaurant has a very nice garden and a great variety of typical Tuscany meat dishes, including rabbit, wild boar, deer, veal, pork and beef. We were 8 persons ordering different antipasti, pasta, risotto and secondi. All dishes were tasty, the wines were great, the service was nothing to complaint about, and the prices are at the lower end, -... More

We have been to this restaurant before, usually for dinner. This time we went a lunchtime and joined local business people.mits always a good sign when local people use a place and this was no different. The food, wine and service were truly excellent and we will definitely go back.

Description
The restaurant is one of the most important focal points situated along our estate. It is located in an ancient renovated country farmhouse. It is the perfect place to re-discover the fragrances and flavours of the Tuscan cuisine of long ago…… a time when once, quenched by a good glass of wine and a delicious steaming plate of food not only meant the simple act of eating and drinking, but an occasion to enjoy the pleasures of nature and sample what she, with great sacrifice, had handed down to us. Uno dei punti di riferimento della fattoria è l'Osteria del Vecchio Olivo, nata da un vecchio casolare di campagna. È il giusto luogo dove riscoprire i profumi e gli antichi sapori della cucina toscana di un tempo… Un tempo quando il ristoro di un buon bicchiere di vino e di un buon piatto fumante significava non soltanto mangiare, ma poter godere dei piaceri della natura e dei cibi che la terra con tanto sacrificio ci aveva donato. Tutto questo… un’emozione, un sogno, un profumo che l'Osteria del Vecchio Olivo saprà regalarvi.
