We enjoyed our first dinner here during our two-week trip in Tuscany. We arrived far too early at 17:30 hours, not knowing yet that restaurants here usually open up between 19:00 and 19:30 hours. We were welcome to wait though, and sat down outside enjoying a beautiful view on the valley. Our 3-year-old daughter enjoyed a frappuccino beverage topped with sweets, which was greatly enjoyed. The food was great, and service was enthusiastic and very, very friendly. We had antipasti as an appetizer, which offered us our first view in the Italian cuisine. It was great, and the main course was superb as well (pizza & pasta).

Vicolo dei Golosi is a great place to get a glass of wine or a simple but delicious Italian meal. Eater and Marco, the couple that run the bar are young,energetic and very welcoming. They have traveled and worked I several places including the U.S. and Australia. Throughout the week I stayed at a B and Bin this tiny town I visited their establishment every day to have a glass of wine or dinner and to use the internet. From the first timeI walked I they made me feel welcome even though they were quite busy on the weekend.

Each evening Marco prepares a small selection of "small bites" that are complimentary to bar and restaurant patrons. The house red is full bodied and delicious and a great deal but they also have a selection of other wines and spirits. My favorite dinner was a homemade ravioli with a butter sage sauce. Fantastic! I also ordered the veal in a wine sauce that was better than veal I have had any where else. This isn't "fancy" food but if you are looking for delicious, Tuscan food fancy isn't necessarily what you want. The restaurant and outdoor seating area are very nice.

Go for dinner, meet Ester and Marco and feel like a local for a while in this tiny Tuscan town!

great food, great place, best atmosphere! The view was spectacular. The place is not easy to find, but make some effort and it sure is worthwile! We came with about 15 people and each had the most different courses, but we were served with pleasure and it was not expensive at all! I do recommend this place to any Italy-lover!

We were there last week and had a wonderful time. Be sure to try the gnocchi and ratatouille. The owner greeted us warmly each time we were there. One night he proudly announced the gelato was freshly made by his dad that afternoon! Vicolo dei Golosi is a gem!

We went with 2 young children 3 times during a one week stay. The pasta in particular was superb and the views are unrivaled. The propiertor clearly takes immense pride in his food and service. One evening with a live 2 piece jazz band was maybe the high point of a two week trip to Italy.
