“A must try!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Antica Calcinaia is a restaurant we happened to stumble upon. We haven't stopped raving about the food and service since. The server, Mauro (you should try to ask for him!) spent at least 10 minutes explaining the menu and giving his honest opinions on the dishes. He was fantastic, and did not disappoint. The fresh zucchini flower and pasta dish and the burger (a unique dish, pizza dough filled with dried veggies and a tasty patty) were absolutely fantastic. The owner genuinely cares about this restaurant, and came by personally to assure our satisfaction with the dishes. You can see the chef through a small window, and watch their attention to detail. A MUST try in San Casciano!!

“Fresh and tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

A day trip to San Casciano was planned and a friend recommended this restaurant as being new with an experienced owner. Located just south of town on the highway to Greve/Panzano there is ample parking out front. We arrived just a little early (Tuscan time) for lunch and were heartily greeted, seated and feted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. Our halting Italian labelled us as touristas but we treated like regulars. A hand printed menu held many Tuscan favourites and we were in the mood for a basic salad and bistecca. Simple enough fare but prepared well and tasty. We will certainly return and try more of their dishes. The decor is fresh and clean and the main room large enough to accommodate larger parties.
