“Excellent restaurant - Amazing Food/wine/ambiance”
Reviewed 23 May 2013

Really No-MISS restaurant if you travel in Tuscany. In a very cute village this restaurant is really well decorated, it feels cosy and confortable. The wine is amazing and the cuisine too. Regional plates coked perfectly. The food is really delicate. We had a great evening and it is a restaurant for all the occasions: romantic evening/ friends diner/ family lunch...

“So glad we stopped for lunch”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

We had eaten at this location in 2004 when it was under a different ownership.....but we were hungry decided to give the new place a try. I cannot tell you how pleased all four of us were with our selections. My lunch was definitely in the top five meals in our three month stay in Italy. Eating on the terrace on a wonderful warm April day was delightful. Be sure to not miss eating at La Chiantina. I have already tried to recreate the cheese wrapped in pancetta and diced vegetables salsa......

“Good food but small portion”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

Food was very nice but the portion were very small. For €7 there is a small zuchini with rice tart. €10 for 2 ravioli. Nice service. Wine was ok. Not good for value

“The best food we had in Italy!”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 via mobile

My wife, daughter and I had dinner here in September and absolutely loved it. We arrived early and the chef came out to greet us and called the manager to open early as there we two other couples waiting. The restaurant is newly renovated old building which includes a wine's cellar/tasting room downstairs and a patio section out front. Everything was first class from attentive knowledgeable service from the manager to exquisite traditional Italian food, the crockery and glassware, wine list and the ability to watch the sun sink over the hills across the valley. The food is very reasonably priced particularly for the high standard. I had a white truffle risotto and finally understand why people like truffles :)

Will definitely make sure we stop in here when we are next in Italy. It's well worth the detour from the main roads!

The ravoli was delightful along with the other pasta dishes. The restaurant is lovely, we also had pizza for lunch which was great.
