“Unusual for Chianti region!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Had a great lunch at this place, great staff, brilliant atmosphere and although I'm not into fast food the best hamburger I've ever had.
Would certainly recommend a visit!

“Phenom dining!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Amazing 5 course meat only dining "to beef or not to beef". Loved this 3 hr plus experience at a communal table. Free flowing meats, wines and grappa! Loved this place. It was everything plus more that Anthony Hourdian spoke of on his show. 50 euro/pp

“Pure Fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

This place is unique, unlike all the osterias and pizzerias you sit in long tables with Total strangers and you all share a set menu family style. The food is all meats from beef and pork prepared in different ways. Nothing fancy but tasty and large portions, especially if you have small eaters at the table. For me love it but more for atmosphere and fun than food. To try at least once, its an experience. ;)

“If its good enough for Jack Nicholson....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Lonely Planet guided me, my wife and 20 yr old daughter to the door of this butcher shop on a hot day in June. I had the Super Dario for €15 and it was melt-in-the-mouth. We ate in the garden alongside locals and tourists. I will be back (although that's Arnie's line). PS. Jack said it was the best burger in the world, hence the title.

“Testosterone meat cave”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

Lol my title is hilarious right?

But seriously, the owner is super full of himself... but he deserves to be. This restaurant is AMAZING. When you walk in, it's super confusing. They offer you food and wine and then when you are done eating as much as you want, they take you to a secret place through a hidden door, through the kitchen and upstairs on the balcony. It was all pretty dramatic. The owner has his face blasted EVERYWHERE. It was quite amusing.

But let's get to the food. IT WAS AMAZING. No other words! We had the burger platter which was the middle selection. I wish we got the burgers medium and not well done. That was our one huge mistake. The sweet and sour sauce was the best. I wish I bought some but we didn't have much room in our luggage. If you are in the area and don't go to this restaurant, I feel sorry for you.
