We went to that area to visit the Castello Mediceo di Cafaggiolo. After the visit, lunch time, we decided to try the place as it was nearby. To quote our eldest "that was the best pasta ever". Friendliest service of the trip so far, lunch special, beef stew with grilled vegetables, from another world and the gnocchi di patate for... More

We found this place by chance while we were trying to escape the congested motorway. And it was a lucky hit. The "bistecca" was really wonderful, a enchantment of taste but especially the atmposphere and the service were very welcoming. The price is adequate and they are dog friendly.

Restaurant close to Florence in one of the historical Medicean places even if not among the most well known and beautiful. The building itself is somehow a hectic place but very comfortable. I found meat -gorgeous meat- served in the Tuscan way with some eccentric matches that were in any case excellent. Very good wine list. Prices a little bit... More

Three of us had lunch in Girodibacco recently. This is the third time I have been here and each time I am not disappointed. The menu is varied and the waiter explained whatever dish you were unsure of. Mushrooms were in season so I opted for a mushroom pasta dish with grilled mushrooms on the side. My companions chose one... More

Stopped here for lunch first time in 2004. Since then, whenever we drive A1 south towards Firenze, we jump off the motorway and drive down to Barberino Di Mugello for lunch at Girodibacco. The host, Paola, and the rest of the staff are always very welcoming and friendly. The food is excellent. More than worth the small detour. (Actually, driving... More

On the previous day we drove past this Osteria and took note of the busy car park... Made sure to stop for lunch the next day and were so happy we did. Service is professional and welcoming and if you don't have Italian they are happy to explain some of the menu. The dishes are inovative and perhaps even a... More

On our way from Pisa Airport we were looking for somewhere to have lunch and this restaurant looked inviting. There were only a few other diners when we arrived. We were seated right away and given very extensive menus. We all chose to have a starter and a main course. Our waiter suggested a pasta dish which was like ravioli... More

We went to this restaurant on the advice of the concierge at the five star villas we were staying. When we arrived we were seated right away. We looked at the menu and we're not impressed.

I wish we'd had time and space for a full meal here. Just called in for "lunch/filler" on our way to a wedding, so we didn't have a full meal, however what we did have was superb.

We went here for supper with our son and daughter in law and one year old granddaughter and received a very warm welcome.
