Traditional Tuscan food, a multitude of wines from which to choose, the most attentive staff in a to-die-for location. If you're visiting for a few days or if you only have time for one meal in Tuscany have it here.

We had a dinner in this place which is a little restaurant in a little town, Montefollonico. We loved (i was there with my girlfriend) the atmosphere: the service is warm and attentive. Food was delicious, rich and extremely well presented. It is not cheap but fairly priced: we had the tagliata as second course and other appetizers, accompanied by... More

This is certainly worth the effort of going of the beaten track. The winelist has over 1000(!) wines on it and the food is great. We've been here twice and sat upstairs on both occasions. Service is very good and it is helpful to ask advice for the various dishes.

Le bottle piece was the best meal of our 10 day trip from Milan to Tuscany and back. The staff was lovely attentive and knowledgeable. The food was quintessential flavors and Tuscan ingredients done in new ways. The pasta was made with care. The wine list was the largest of our trip. It is completely worth the drive up to... More

This wonderful restaurant is in the center of Montefollonico. They serve fresh, flavor-filled food. I had pumpkin and farro soup that was excellent and a pasta dish. Others in my party said their food was excellent as well. The best potatoes in Italy!- lightly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Service was outstanding. Very extensive wine list....

This place was recommended by our hotel and we were looking forward to a nice meal in this popular and attractive place. They have an amazing selection of wines. The room was lovely, the atmosphere great and the service excellent. But our excitement quickly waned. My partner's App (a cheese flan with mushrooms) was declared outstanding, but my traditional tomato... More

This restaurant was recommended by the place we stayed with the same owners. To be honest, we were skeptical about that at first but it ended up being a great recommendation. We got a big steak to share which was beautiful. We also ordered a ravioli dish which was delicious but could have been slightly bigger and I ordered a... More

Visited this gorgeous restaurant as solo traveller and also part of a group and was delighted every time. Food was fresh and absolutely delicious. Also took part of a cooking class here which I thoroughly enjoyed. Owners and staff delightful. A wine list so extensive it takes your breath away! Cannot wait for a return visit!

This wonderful boutique restaurant was amazingly excellent! We had a little trouble locating it but the food was simply elegant, the ambiance wonderful and Nicola was a great waiter. While their food is great, the service excellent and the atmosphere very Tuscan, the wine list runs about 40 pages! Don't worry, they'll help you select the right ones. Five stars... More
