Fabulous experience
Sep 2020 • Family
What a wonderful experience. My wife booked it for our wedding anniversary and we were joined by my son 28 and daughter 22. Beautiful location just outside san miniato in a fabulous villa where we were introduced to the real star ‘Ciocco’ the dog. A couple of hours spent in the woods and we found two decent sized winter white truffles and a huge edible boletus mushroom. We returned to the villa where the truffles and mushroom were turned into a delicious lunch by Francesa’s mother served with beautiful olive oil from the estate and two of their own wines both excellent. Honestly though the day may seem expensive at first the experience and the wonderful hospitality were well worth the price. We left full of pasta, meat and truffles with some of that lovely oil and wine and gift of honey again from the estate. Wonderful experience thank you to Francesca, your delightful mother and of course Ciocco who we all wanted to bring back to England.

What an Amazing experience!
Dec 2019 • Family
Francesca, our amazing Truffle Hunting guide took us on quite the Truffle Adventure. Thanks to Ciocco we found 5 delicious Truffles that were then cooked and served for lunch, which was delicious and prepared by the real Italian Mamma. We had a blast!
I strongly recommend Truffle Hunting with them!
Grazie Francesca and family, you are amazing!

A charming countryside dinner that had us wanting more!
May 2019
We loved the casual atmosphere. They accommodated us last-minute and we were amazed by the flavours and selection. They had offerings for vegetarians and a person with celiac disease (senza glutine). Their specialty: the bolognese. White truffle is the local delicacy. It is infused (mildly) in many dishes. They do it correctly so it is not overpowering. We returned again and were not disappointed. We also managed to purchase the bolognese sauce for take out. It's a challenging drive in the dark but your GPS will help you.

What a fabulous day!
Oct 2018 • Couples
What a truly amazing experience. So interesting! My husband is a forager in the USA and was very interested in this excursion. I too found it delightful. After an hour to one and half hour hunt in the woods (yes choco, the dog led us to multiple white truffle finds) we went back a fabulous meal. The food was the best we had during our stay in Tuscany! We also were able to taste multiple wines and olive oil all made right there. We would highly recommend adding this to your Tuscany visit.

Tuscany at it's absolute finest!
Oct 2018
Mu husband and I just celebrated our 40th Anniversary with a trip to Europe. Although we visited several incredible countries and cities, the Truffle Hunting Experience in San Miniato with Francesca, her dog Cioco and our guide Matteo remains, by far, the most authentic and memorable. Matteo met us and 6 others in Florence and drove us to Fattoria Collebrunacchi. Matteo is very warm, witty, charismatic and very knowledgeable about truffle hunting - regaling us with stories and making us laugh a lot. By the time we arrived at our destination, we all felt like friends. Our group was made up of Americans & Canadians - one newlywed couple on their honeymoon, two sisters celebrating a birthday, a couple celebrating their 2nd anniversary and us. Despite the various ages and stages, thanks to Matteo we quickly jelled and had an absolutely magical time together. When we arrived at the Villa, Matteo introduced us to Francesca and Cioco and then we all set off walking through the gorgeous Tuscan countryside and into the woods. It was white truffle season and Cioco did not disappoint. He found several white truffles and then, to everyone's surprise, he also found several black truffles! Even though the black truffle season was officially over, Matteo and Francesca explained that the unseasonably warm weather had inadvertently extended the black truffle season. After we completed our truffle hunt, Francesca and Cioco graciously posed with us for photos, which Matteo took. We all had a lovely time visiting the beautiful gardens and the Chapel on the grounds of Francesca's villa before going inside for our meal. Truly, one of the most delicious meals we had on our whole trip. BEST Tagliatelle I've ever eaten - complete with truffles and wine pairings. First time having Grappa with dessert but would highly recommend it! After our meal, we went to a Chianti Winery and had a tour, followed by a wine tasting in a private room. Matteo has had training and worked as a Chef and is also a certified Sommelier, so he was the perfect guide for both parts of our trip. He not only talked us through the finer points of our meal, he guided us through the various wines and introduced us to new ones. After the Winery, he drove us all back to Florence. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. Although it is a little pricey, it is worth every penny.

Reminiscing Tuscany
Dec 2017 • Couples
Just celebrated our 4th Wedding Anniversary yesterday. My husband took me to a truffle lounge in New York.

We could not help but reminisce our amazing truffle hunting back in December 12, 2015. We were city folk holding our starbucks trekking through the woods (not prepared). Choco accompanied us during the hunt. The best part was the amazing meal—It was authentic and home cooked. We could taste the truffle in every dish. The dinning room was also romantic and warm. We hope we can take our growing family back for this experience.

Wonderful truffle hunting tour and lunch
Nov 2017 • Couples
What a wonderful experience! We signed up for the truffle hunt and lunch. Upon arrival we were greeted by Francesca the owner. She offered boots for the truffle hunt in case you don’t want to dirty your shoes. We walked through beautiful woods for about an hour while the dog searched for truffles. A successful day as we found two white truffles and one black. Along the way Francesca provided lots of information about truffles and the hunt as well as details about the woods and the local area. Lunch was prepared by Francesca and was amazing! Everything tasted delicious and was plated beautifully. Fattoria Collebrunacchi makes wine, olive oil and honey which were incorporated into the menu. These products are available for purchase and Francesca will ship internationally. I highly recommend visiting Fattoria Collebrunacchi and would love to come back in the future.

Fun and tasty experience!
May 2016 • Friends
We arrived at San Miniato train station and our taxi driver Antonio was already waiting for us. In the communication with the organisers, the ride is €25 - but be aware that this is €25 each way for a 10-15 minute journey, the taxi seats 4 passengers.
We were greeted warmly by the staff and our truffle guide Francesca who introduced Choco the truffle dog to us.
In the beautiful garden, we were then served white wine, toasted crusty bread and fresh broad beans with extra virgin olive oil.
The other truffle guide Vittoria arrived with two more customers for the tour and then we set off.
After a brief walk, we arrived at the truffle grounds and within a short time, Choco found some lychee sized aromatic black truffles. Choco also found a huge truffle (the size of a broccoli head!) but Francesca could not stop him before he broke off a piece and ran off to eat his find!
We then returned to the house and were served pecorino at different stages of maturity with their accompanying dips (quince for the youngest pecorino, lemon curd for the medium and honey for the most mature) and then we were served our first course of vegetable soup with shaved black summer truffle on top and white truffle paste at the bottom. A bottle of easy drinking red wine was opened and we could help ourselves.
The second course was polenta with mushrooms, artichoke fritti, meatless polpette, courgette and aubergine and more shaved truffles.
For the main course, a bottle of reserva red wine was opened.
A parcel of aluminium foiled was brought to each of us and as soon as you opened it, the delicious smell of truffle burst out. Inside the parcel was linguine with truffle cream sauce, crushed pine nuts and even more shaved truffle!
Lastly, we were served traditional biscuits with dessert wine.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was warm and friendly. We purchased some wine and preserves (they provide shipping) and would highly recommend this tour to any truffle lovers!

Best Experience in Italy!
Apr 2015 • Couples
We visited Fattoria Collebrunacchi for a truffle hunting experience and it turned into the highlight of our trip. Francesca, who was our guide, our host and our chef provided such a great experience for us that we would do it again if we're ever in San Miniato. Ciocco, our truffle hunting dog was a highlight as well. The truffle hunt itself was wonderful because we, luckily, did not have a large group and ended up receiving a private truffle hunt. Ciocco was so great because he found 3-4 truffles even though we went during an off peak season. After the truffle hunt which took us through such beautiful countryside with olive trees and neighbors who were waving to us as we walked through the hillside, we came back to Francesca's home where she served us the most wonderful meal I've ever had in my life. We had our truffles and some wild asparagus we found during our walk in our freshly made meal with white truffle sauce, shaved truffle and truffle flavoring in our omelet, crostini, charcuterie and pasta which was the best tagliatelle I've ever had. Francesca and Ciocco made our experience in San Miniato so wonderful, 2 months later we're still regaling all of our friends and family about what a great experience we had there. I can't say enough about how great this was for us.

The restaurant offers many Tuscan specialities, including interesting truffle recipes. The white truffle dishes are included in a separate menu and are priced accordingly! Service is a bit slow and looks quite bored..

Simple choices for wine with excellent prices.
