We found the restaurant by accident as we walked into town from where we parked. We were seated at a table in the garden area with a beautiful view of the Tuscany countryside. The wait staff were prompt and attentive and provided useful suggestions. Many delicious options, including vegetarian - fresh ingredients, a variety of seasonings, etc. We thought we... More

We stopped here on a fluke, heading towards our Agriturismo in Singalunga. We are so glad we did. It was a beautiful sunny fall day, the veiws from anywhere in this walled city are spectacular. It's not a huge town, so we walked the whole thing, winding in and out of small walkways, stopping at shops along the way. And... More

This place has a lovely hidden garden. Ask for a table there if the weather is nice. The staff is friendly, food is wonderful, and make sure you save room for their amazing desserts.

We ate at al Veccio Forno twice while visiting Tuscany, a testament to how much we enjoyed it, because there are lots of great places to eat. Our first meal was lunch, when we enjoyed soup and a plate of antipasti. Both the soups were good, but the tomato soup they serve is outstanding; it's the version with bread, finished... More

We came across this little gem whilst out for a stroll and settled in the courtyard to enjoy the beautiful balmy evening. The food was lovely, the service could have been better but was okay. The setting was wonderful but we had the feeling that they were busy and wanted people out as soon as they had eaten which was... More

We've been here with friends end of September and ate incredibly good. We had a big plate with diverse antipasti, this was actually not on the menu card but we asked to combine some nice antipasti for us and it was very tasty. As main dish I had Gnocchi with pesto, really good! One of the better pesto's I ate... More

We had a three-course dinner, which tasted pretty nice. Delicately spiced up, perfectly cooked. Prosecco served at the beginning and special menus printed for ladies not showing prices are nice gestures adding to the overall experience. Could spice the menu up with some experimental modernized dishes.

The food and service were wonderful here. This is the only place we ate at twice during a 3 week tour of Italy. The steak with rosemary and olive oil was great. Pastas and antipasti, likewise superb. Extensive list of primarily Tuscan wines. Definitely worth a visit.

This restaurant was excellent. Our starter pasta was so delicious best we have had in Italy yet, we both had a kind of meat stew for main with some buttered cabbage and veg, so simple but so delicious. We shared a dessert and a dessert wine which was again so delicious. The waiter was friendly and attentive and made useful... More
