15 years ago the Mrs and I found this unassuming local place and have spent those 15 years looking for another like it. So far we have failed. Very local, little to no English, no printed menu, all today's specials are written on the chalkboard out front. The family runs the place with great skill and pride and serves the best genuine Tuscan cuisine yet. Don't miss Da Mario if you are within 100 miles of Buonconvento. You will be happy you went.

The restaurant is small and family run. But the food and service are fabulous equal to the best anywhere.
Everything is homemade in true Tuscan style.
In addition, the prices are reasonable for the area.

I like when people can prepare a meal with simple ingredients which have quality enough to satisfy people... This was the case at "Da Mario"... People don't speak so easily English - but enough to explain what is on the menu. They don't try to show off sympathy but they can have something warm with them if you come simply to eat and not to argue about everything.

I had nothing to complain about, as the primi piatti was a Ragu spaghetti, with the exact quantity of oil, cooked long enough to have the taste that it should have - according to myself. Not other ingredients which don't bring anything : carrot, spices, oignons,...

I took a rabbit after this primi piatti and this was wonderful. Tender and with a sauce tasty enough to give the sense of the meat.

As I went there in the winter, a friday evening, every other places were desert. Da Mario was full. I chose this restaurant after advices received in Sienne in an Osteria and also directly by a local in Buonconvento.

Great food !

We had an incredible dinner at this simple trattoria after a long hike on a recent Friday afternoon. What a delight. The steak Florentine was cooked rare (be sure to specify). The waitress expertly deboned and served it. We shared a pasta dish that I will never forget-hot pasta tossed with a
Olive oil, garlic, and peppers-simple but perfect. An unlabeled bottle of the house wine was placed on our table, so that we may serve ourselves. Our waitress was helpful and charming.
