good, but pricy restaurant with excellent service and a wide range of local as well as international wines. i especially liked the "bistecca alla fiorentina" which is of course expensive but really worth the money.

Thank travelRNbg

Dear Guest,

thank you very much for your review.

I agree with you that the Origina Fiorentina T-Bone Steak is a little expensive (4,00 € x 100 g) but the quality of the meat is the first quality and also is a selected meat of the Chianti area.

Thanks for the compliments for our local wine selection, we have more than 130 local labels and most of them come from unknown small winery. This because I would like to offer a real Chianti and Toscana Experience !

I hope you will come back soon because I have to show you our new herbal garden made in the top of Cortefreda Hill where you can see a fantastic view of the Chianti area.

Kind Regards

Massimiliano

My friend and I traveled south from Florence on October 20 on our way to San Gimigmino and other points south. We took the Tarvenelle exit off of the expressway and circled Tarvenelle five times before giving up on finding a place to eat (despite the kind directions provided by locals).

On our way out of Tarvarnelle, we noticed the sign for "Borgo Contefreda" and its restaurant, "Ristorante Coretefreda." We backed up and went to the restaurant, and we are so glad we did.

It was past the lunch hour when we arrived, and we were not sure if they would still be serving lunch, but we were warmly greeted by our host, our server--Massimiliano Canton. He was the best! After he presented our luncheon menu, he suggested we visit their wine cellar/shop to sample some of the wines and cheeses they offered. We enjoyed that so much, and that led us to making good choices for our luncheon appetizers and entree's.

I cannot say enough about Massimiliano. He immediately made us feel at home, and he guided us well in our menu selections. The food was so fresh and delicious! After we finished our lunch, we joined Massimiliano in the "cellar," where we bought honey and other products grown in the region.

On my next visit to Tuscany, I plan to stay at this hotel. It is beautiful and is in a beautiful part of Tuscany. I hope Massimiliano will still be there to greet me. He is the best!
