Tipical Italian food. Very busy and noisy. No space: 40 people in a room for 20, but good food and friendly staff.
Recommend for informal lunch. We were a group of 20 and returned there twice as we enjoyed it very much.

Casa del Prosciutto is always worth a visit. In season it is always packed so you will wait some time if you don't have a reservation. Or you can order in the bottega and eat outside at the ouc nic tables provided. Their homemade pastas are excellent, their second courses are made with local fresh products. It is a very satisfying experience.

Definitely to recommend this little trattoria just check out the opening hours in advance. Try whatever you can and mingle with locals.

We try to visit the Mugello twice a year, staying in the village of Sagginale so at least one visit to La Casa del Prosciutto is, for us , a must, small: yes, but with a fantastic atmosphere and always very busy, booking is always advisable but every effort will be made by the charming and extremely efficient staff to fit you in, if you just turn up. Or why not eat outside? that is great especially if you are with a group of friends and the sun always shines in Tuscany!! Most important: the food, in our opinion it is true, local, fresh ingredients cooked with love and passion and served in the lovely way the Italians have got down to a fine art. As other reviewers have mentioned it is a real family business which helps to explain why the do what they do so well, while some, more "prestigious?" restaurants, fail. The menu is not large, but to me that is great as you have faith that the kitchen will deliver on quality and taste and oh boy it certainly does. Parking outside can be slightly problematic when busy, but there is always room along the road from Vicchio before you cross the bridge. My personal favourite is the wild boar ragu followed by stuffed rabbit: ottimo!! The desert menu is fantastic, but I prefer to end my meal with cheese and a glass of local red wine, not on "the menu" but a word with the waitress and a wonderful selection always appears, with bread, honey and carta da musica! All this for a very reasonable price: for example at our last visit, Sunday lunch four of us had antipasto, pasta, secondi, dolci (cheese for me), caffe e liquore, two litres of wine and acqua. Total bill was about euro 120, gratuities at your discretion. We have eaten in many and various establishments in Italy and recon The House of Ham is up there with the best, and we look forward to our next visit

This very little and cozy restaurant in the country is absolutely packed full of a few large happy Italian families and couples on a leisurely escape from Florence. The restaurant and area are NOT for those who are more comfortable visiting landscapes and restaurants that cater to tourists in any capacity - not in cuisine selections or service. It is for people who love authentic fresh Tuscan food and an authentic experience. The food from fresh greens to desserts is incredible, the wine selection impeccable and the rustic small dining room is charming. It is a wonderful place. When I recommend restaurants to friends traveling abroad, I have two lists. One list I offer to those who appreciate quality, who can blend in well, and who will savor special places/meals/environments. The other is more generic and I offer it to those who think they appreciate good food, who praise what they've been trained to praise and who are more comfortable with a place that caters to the fine palate of the masses. This restaurant would be on the first list only. It is perfect for the right people.
