Well, this is the eve of us departing Tuscany and chose to return to this gem hidden in the hills of San Boronto, near Lamporecchio.
We returned here because of all the food we have eaten, and in some cases not eaten in Tuscany, this was the best by a country mile. Although a set menu may put some people off, you would be wrong to swerve this one. Although it was just a little over a week since our first visit the menu had changed but was still a delight to eat every dish that came out of the kitchen.
We waited with anticipation as to what would appear next. My partner is a vegetarian so I did make a brief phone call at around 3pm to let them know. ( I didn't get through but they called me back ).
I must just mention the home grown grape jus, this went extremely well with the thin sliced pork as did the whole cooked grapes ( 1st for me) they were devine. All this wonderful food lovingly accompanied with ample house wine and bottled water followed by coffee, fortified wine and Biscotti biscuits and a cheeky Limoncello or 2 to finish off.
A lovely chat with the chef and his son before we rolled home ❤️

P.S. Claudio Ranieri managed Chelsea and Leicester City...... not Chester......True story

Looking for somewhere nice for dinner on our 2nd evening in Lamporecchio, we found La Casetta through a search of TripAdvisor & made our way up the hill on the narrow, winding roads.
We hadn't booked but the young waiter soon found us a table.
Unfortunately it was a set menu of meat dishes, but he offered to try his best to accommodate me, as a vegetarian, with pasta, vegetables etc.
We soon lost track of how many starters we were brought, which included bruschetta, onion-filled pastries, cheeses. There was a lovely cheese-filled ravioli in a very tasty tomato sauce. My partner had some strips of steak which he said were very nice, which were followed by sliced beef in a chianti gravy......delicious apparantly.
The fixed menu included a couple of carafes of lovely red wine and bottles of water.
As we were finishing our meal we got chatting to our neighbouring table, a lovely family from the Netherlands, who have been holidaying in this area for 15 years & love it. The owner-chef also came out & sat amongst us & we spent a good hour or so chatting & enjoying the company & atmosphere.
All in all a brilliant, quite spontaneous and very enjoyable evening .......highly recommended!

We can only recommend to visit this place. Extremely nice people serving an excellent five course menu with water, wine, coffee, and a grappa for a very fair price.
Thanks for this great experience. We will definitely come back next time when we are in the area.

No menu and only 10 tables. So reservations have to be made. Only wine and water as much as you like. The food is exceptional, simple and flavorful. The location is breathtaking. When you have the change to go, just go!

We visited for the second time last night - we had pre booked via email and warned them that there were 2 vegetarians. This is essential as it is a set menu Each of the 10 courses were presented to us and explained and the veggie alternatives were fantastic . Everything was fresh and full of flavour . The wine flowed all night and the whole experience was finished off with the most beautiful homemade limoncello ( which you can buy for €12 a bottle ). You won't get a better Tuscan meal . We will definitely return .
