“Great home cooking in Tuscany”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

If you really want to enjoy genuine Tuscan cuisine in a very freindly setting with breathtaking views all around, you must come to Vellano, you must come to Serena's Bistrot!
Utterly friendly service, very reasonable prices and simple yet excellent dishes, including great pizza, home made pasta and signature antipasti.
And if you've had too much wine and don't want to drive on, ask Serena if you could rent a room or a whole apartment in a the splendid villa she manages.

“Hidden treasure...great views and wonderful service!”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 via mobile

We booked our Vellano stay from a Brisbane referral, off the beaten tourist trail...what a beautiful little hillside village! We have had the best coffee since arriving in Italy. Serena makes them caldo e veloce. We had an excellent dinner here with lovely Casa vino and home cooked meals.The drive is not for the feint hearted but the views are spectacular, service good and friendly. Note it is cash only. We have had 5 nights here in Vellano and it's a great central spot to venture out to other parts of Tuscany.

“Beautiful Views and Excellent Food”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

This is one of the best kept secrets in northern Tuscany - the Bistrot in Vellano. With the breathtaking views aross the 'deici castella' or hilltop villages and wonderful food (their ravioli with fresh vegetables was the best food we'd had all holiday!). This restaurant is very reasonably priced and you get the best of what is fresh and local on the day. Absolutely brilliant!

“Great restaurant with amazing views”
Reviewed 15 July 2013

Whilst on holiday in Tuscany we visited this friendly restaurant in Vellano on several evenings.
Their tourist menu is such good value at 10 Euros which included Pasta, a main course and wine and coffee. Our son opted for the pizza and loved it. The owners were really friendly and even on night when we popped in for a drink they gave us nibbles to have with it.
