“Napolitan seafood in the heart of Tuscany”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

We found this restaurant by accident and were the only guests on the first day of reopening after the winter break. The chef is from Naples as you can tell from the way he cooks fish and seafood, which is prominent on the menu in a way it rarely is in landlocked places in Tuscany. You can watch the cooking through a glass window if you sit close to the kitchen. Both the service and the food were excellent and the ancient horse stables in which the restaurant is set provide a special atmosphere.

“A good surprise coming into a wonderful experience..”
Reviewed 5 October 2012 via mobile

It was Tuesday 7h of August and after a brief walk in Lucignano we decided to move to Asciano and when we got there it was over midday and really hot outside. The historical centre of Asciano is not so fascinating as the countryside and hills around there so that we tried to get the best thanks to Tripadvisor on our phones and we were lucky as we discovered that we had,just in front of us, this beautiful restaurant: Lo Scudiero. It was just near the city walls,inside an old but renewed building where many decades ago there maybe were lots of horses. We had been warmly welcomed by the 2 owners and a very kind girl who accepted also our little puppy dog Zorro who was with us during our holiday. Everything was as previous reviews told, the place,the atmosphere, the wide window that allow customers to directly see the chef cooking inside the kitchen. Their specialty is fish so that we enjoyed two delicious dishes in the list, two salads and a bottle of fresh white wine. We were the only customers in all restaurant and we have been treated as king and queen with many little attentions that added to the special food let us live one of the best experience of all the holiday in Tuscany. We will surely come back to them as we would like to have a night in the winery where each night they offer live music and good wine tastings. I forgot..we spent 50 € for 2 big and good fish dishes,one bottle of Ribolla Gialla white wine, one bottle of water,two salads and two coffees.

“Excellent - nice - cosy - not expensive”
Reviewed 16 September 2012

It was our second visit at Lo Scudiero. There are a wide range of different courses to choose from the menu, the wine list is good. The staff is very frindly and smiley. The food are excellent prepared and is fine looking on the plate. We were full when we had had our starter and main course, but the people next to our table had dessert, and it was so beautifull, a piece of art. We are defenately comming back and we look very much forward to visiting the beautiful restaurant again. And did I mention, that the prices are very reasonable?

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

We celebrated our twelfth anniversary at Lo Scudiero. At the edge of the town and convenient parking. The converted stable blends 17th and 21st century beautifully. The food was very, very good and service was excellent. Wine list was good, too. There was seafood on the menu for my non-meat eating hubbie which has been rare when we have eaten out.
