“Excellent Tuscan Food with Friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We happened upon this restaurant on out way to the main town.
The service was very good and one had the sense of a family setting.
The starters were fabulous especially the bruschetta.
For main course the children went for picci whilst the adults had gnocchi. All were very nice.
The side dishes of garlic potatoes and white beans were particularly good.
I would recommend this restaurant.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We spent four lovely days here and would definitely recommend it. Carlo, the owner and chef, was friendly and very attentive. The food was EXCELLENT- made with care and the freshest ingredients. And finally, our room was comfortable and cozy. It was exactly what we were looking for.

“Excellent Food & Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 December 2013

I was brought to eat here on one of the nights of my 7-day Tuscan Way wine tour and was blown away by the incredible meal and wine we had. I tried ribollita soup and wild boar for the first time ever and absolutely LOVED it. This will definitely be a go-to restaurant on my next trip to Tuscany.

“Excellent traditional Southern Tuscan food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2012

I have been with my husband and daughter to La Locanda del Prete and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to try traditional southern tuscan food like "acqua cotta" a wonderful bread soup, "pici all'aglione", homemade spaghetti with a fresh tomato sauce with lots of garlic, "zuppa di funghi" the traditional porcini mushrooms soup, and many more dishes that you wouldn't find easily in many restaurants around. The location is great too, peaceful and relaxing. As far as the service, we really enjoyed the waiter Maurizio, very friendly, with a great sense of humor and also very professional. The prices are fair for the food and service you get. Great place!

“Great food, great wine, great staff, unbelievable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2012

My wife and I just returned from italy, and the high point of our trip was our stay at La Locanda del Prete. Carlo, his partner Pascal, Rosa, Maurizzio and the rest of the staff took the time to interact with us while they treated us as special guests. The food, prepared by Carlo and Rosa was excellent, and they took the time to show us how to prepare two of them in the kitchen. Pascal and Maurizzio served and talked with us, explaining the dishes and the traditions behind them. Rosa and her help kept the rooms very clean and stocked with fresh linens daily. The rooms were newly remodeled and the bathrooms were modern and large (something that is not that common in Italy).
Part of our stay included a 5 day wine tour though Tuscany with Carlo's son, Romeo, but Monday morning Romeo's wife, Fredrica, came to take us on our tour for the day, informing us that Romeo was ill, and proceeded to wow us with her knowledge and humor. The rest of the week became a trip into the heart of the Italian wine country, the traditions, the food and the people with the beautiful Fredrica as our guide. We saw small towns not on the tour and met her friends and had lunches in ristorantes that she knew and had the adventure of finding the winerys and enotecas of the day. She adapted and made our trip special, spending her time with us instead of her family. Finally on Friday Fredrica had to return to work and Pascal took us out to our last tastings and she showed us a perfect day to finish our week.
These wonderful Italian people from the small hill town of Arcidosso, took a situation that could have been disasterous for us, adapted and gave us a very special week in the Italian countryside.
On a scale of one to five they deserve a ten ! ! !
