“What a buzz!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

My wife heard about this store from Judy Witts chianti food and wine App. We went in on the first Sunday of the month where the town hosts a flea and food market on the streets. This place was a buzz with people coming and going. This guy Dario gives out free bread, wine, flavored lard ( to die for ) salami and cheese for free. He gives great big hugs to all the locals when they come in, it's a real show. It's a small store but he has a restaurant next door that I heard was incredible. Enjoy the atmosphere and buy a little something to go. Made my day to see the generosity of this butcher.

“Dario the Butcher is a force of nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

This place was abuzz with action when we dropped by on a Sunday morning. Dario was holding court. The shop was crowded. The wine was flowing. Everyone was enjoying the bread, meats and cheeses. It was amazing. Later that afternoon we enjoyed the full Officina della Bistecca meal. Wow!
