Very nice resturant the staff friendly and food superb would definitely recommend a visit.

“Fantastic culinary experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a pearl of Gaiole in Chianti. Really amazing food: pure and high quality products only (some even from the own garden), perfect combinations and presented in a original way. This is food made with passion. The staff is professional and friendly. For our son of 1,5 yr we got a nice pasta meal. Price - quality ratio is good.

“Consistently Outstanding Food & Service!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

We have frequented this restaurant several times and the owner/chef Andrea has never failed to impress with his excellent food and wine selection. Very outstanding value. His menu rotates around what is available in his environment...and each time you go it is a pleasant surprise.

“Best lamb of my life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

We went to Le Contrade by recommendation of our hotel. The meal was superb! I had fried ravioli in truffles sauce and lamb in nuts crust, and it was to die for, seriously! The chef came to our table to explain all the dishes, it was really special! The price is fair and the service awesome! The only minor thig I need to say is that they are adjacent to a family style pizzaria, with a karaoke... But, quite honestly, the meal was so unbelievably fantastic that we didn't even notice it! I would definetely recommend it!

“One of the best restaurants we have ever been to!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

My wife and myself have been fortunate to experience and eat in some of the top restaurants around the world, and Le Contrade rates up there with one of the best restaurants we have ever been to. It came recommended to us and after scouting it out we booked a table for our final night in Gaiole. The views, the service, the fresh produce, the food, the wine, the passion shines through to make it a memorable last evening in a beautiful part of the world. Thank you La Contrade.
