“A real find in the hill top hamlet of Passignano near Tavernelle”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

The small hamlet dominated by the church and historic buildings boasts several restaurants including Scuderia. A warm welcome and excellent menu and wine list made this a great impromptu stop for lunch. The tagliolini with truffle was excellent and our neighbours Florentine steak had us salivating!

“Best dining experience in Tuscany”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We spent one week at a nearby luxury hotel/resort and we chose this restaurant (10 min drive away) for a family cooking class instead of the rather formal class offered by the hotel. Wow. This was a highlight of our trip. 4 adults and 4 kids had a private class introducing us to cooking fresh pasta. We all loved it and the lunch that followed where we dined on the food we prepared.

We returned a few nights later for adult dinner and the atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, and simply incredibly food made this my favorite restaurant in Tuscany. Outdoor tables with vineyard views. Extensive wine list, but still reasonable. The freshest tomatoes! You will cry when you taste the bruschetta. The sweetest melon. Beef with truffles.I simply cannot explain it. You must go here.

Thank you again to the staff for a memorable experience.

“Peak of excellence :)”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

The setting , the staff , the room , the food , and the feeling of being in Chianti , THIS IS IT !!!!
No where better , for lunch or dinner in Italy. If you were going to have one meal this is the one. If you like local delicate flavours of burrata , black or white truffles you can't get better. The owner Stefano will make sure you have the best experience. The only problem you will have is choosing what to eat. As you scan the menu , you want it all .... Pizza with black truffles , burrata with truffles are great appetizers. Bistek Florentine with eggs and truffles on top is over the top , total extassy !
The view overlooking the valley just makes this place serene.
A MUST , even worth a huge detour .....

“nr 1 in tuscany”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

Over the past 2 years that I lived in the area I have tried, without exageration over a 100 restaurants. Non comes close to Scuderia, where they are always nice, food is always fresh and great, pizza is 2nd best I ever eaten. it is the only restaurant where i can send anyone, anytime. the most demanding client or guest. They have my respect and gratitude for being the exception in Tuscan food, which on average is poor. I have been maybe 30 times in the past 18 months, always happy, not cheap but correct pricing.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

The "fiorentina" is great, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is spectacular. Perhaps a little expensive but a must try.
