Pici with bacon and breadcrumbs was match but a bit greasy. The beef was chewy, pizza with a lot of cheese that suits cheese lovers. The cheese of Tiramisu was different from outside, not very soft.

This bistro/restaurant has an enviable location, deeply set in the Chianti countryside. The decor is warm and stylish, with an hint of old Tuscany, hence the name "Furnace" . The wine list is extensive and accurate, as well as the beer selection, and the prices...More
