This butcher pride themselves on quality and they deliver in buckets! Out of their store they sell amazing salami and meats, and if you have the time...make sure to dine there. If you like meat, this is the best Italy can possibly offer.

This place is worth it. What a fun experience, they service wine and appetizers in the butcher shop (free). The music is cranked up and everyone is having fun. A small wait to get into the restaurant where the fun continues. The prices are cheap compared to what you having been paying for other meals in the area.

Its not often that you run across a butcher who wears Prada shoes and spouts Dante and poetry while slicing meat in a book-lined space. Dario Cecchini' shop doubles ,i am told as the town hall in Panzano.
Sure people come here to buy bistecca panzano,or Florentine beefsteak,but in my view,they come here to gossip and catch upon what's happening in town. Our Italian friends had us in tow,safely navigating and interpreting while the Maestro held us with suspicious eye. Though some may not be won over by his grand style,he nevertheless is a consummate host,especially after our friends told him we were Aussies not Americanos. He winked and added in partial English that he does not like Americans solely because they don't buy enough. Point taken.

Bowls filled with local olives and sliced orange anf free glasses of Chianti greeted us on arrival. I am going to have a tet-a tet with my local butcher who doesn't spout Dante but has a sulphuric jokester repertoire.... as to garnish his business with local wines and titbits.

One of the best meals I have had in Tuscany! Portions are delicious and very generous. The atmosphere that Dario and all the staff create is fantastic! A must on your to do list!

We asked the owner of the Moro Ristorante where we should get some local sausage to take to some friends. She said Falorni is the big, famous one but Cecchini is even better.
The truffle sausage blew me away. The owners were proud to let us taste before we bought. They also wanted to share tastes of their wine and balsamico.
