Great, honest, Italian food, with the ravioli as a started being perfect.
Winelist very impressive, service decent and very polite.
Had a very good meal here, would most definatelty like to come back to enjoy another nice, freshly prepared meal with fresh ingredient and a smashing bottle of white wine.

As many other reviewers have said, this place is amazing and very good value especially the menu of the day which is not available at weekends. Hidden away in a cosy country side it could be easily missed. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that we returned again the next day to try more of the menu choices and after that we ate here every day. We tried a La Carte for lunch as well as lunch menu and the food was always good: various antipastos with unexpected harmony of flavours; the vegetable and bean soups were great; the mix grilled meat selection was just perfectly done; the coffee with the tiramisu and cream brule was the perfect end of the meal. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Top marks, really a very special place!

We ended up going to this restaurant twice during the six days we stayed at the Marriot Il Ciocco nearby. The hotel staff recommended it and they were spot on. Located on a hill in a small town, Trattoria Bonini serves up delicious Tuscan delights. The owner greeted us warmly and made terrific recommendations on wines that paired extremely well with our food. We had traditional tagliata, a ravioli with hazelnuts and honey, Tuscan soup, pork dishes, all prepared beautifully. The desserts were great as well. We sat outside both times and just basked in the experience.

We went there with all our grown-up children and had a nice evening there.. The staff is very polite and efficient.. The food is good and tastty but do not expect highly gastro-like food. You are in the country far away in the hills of Tuscany and the food is good local food. The price is all-right a little on the high side. Sadly enough the restaurant had no view overlooking the valley.

The owner and the cook certainly know what they are doing. The three of us stopped there last night while returning from a hike. We were welcomed even if we looked rough (not dressed for a restaurant). We sat outside for a drink, in the last bit of the 8 pm sun. We had our dinner inside, in the beautifully restored ground floor room, the walls showing neatly the bare stones (pietra a vista). We had a three course meal (with housewine) for 85 EUR. We ate fish (trout), pasta, and meat (tagliata) and dessets (an excellent crostata all'arancia). Everything was delicious. The portions perhaps a bit limited, especially considering there was no accompanying vegetables (contorno) to go with the main course. Very nice presentation of the dishes, and very welcoming service.
