A lovely meal on our last night out in Tuscany. The food was traditional Tuscan fayre with real flavour. Sitting outside in a gorgeous setting gave the evening that extra special feel.

Sitting on the terrace below trees with a lovely view on Chianti hills. I truly appreciated the veal stew in Chianti style, perfectly cooked.

We have been here several times over the past two years, and it is just a lovely little restaurant. Food is Italian, and delicious. Fish, meat and pasta. Staff are great, really helpful.

A simple restaurant full of locals who usually go there for the amazing pizzas. Also all other kinds of Tuscan typical dishes, delicious and good price. Good selection of wines.

Description
We are just outside of Florence. We’ve left the city behind us and have taken the famous Secondary Road n. 222, better known as the Chiantigiana, towards Siena. Beforeentering Strada in Chianti we have on our left the Ristorante Il Caminetto del Chianti known for years for its traditional Tuscan quality cuisine yet not forsaking a few items of national character. The term “Country Restaurant” that can be read on the sign located on its rustic facade is not a misnomer: it is a chameleon-like locale that knows how to be elegant and romantic while at the same time simple and traditional due to its 16 years of passionate family management. The seasonal menu choices are the result of careful research of regional culinary tradition: therefore, next to the “Great Tuscan Classics” there are extraordinary dishes that are now almost forgotten or at least obsolete like Peposo, Carabaccia and Matuffi that come back to life on the Caminetto del Chianti table. The secret to this restaurant’s quality cuisine is found mainly in its use of locally produced prime quality products. Great care is also taken in selecting wines. The excellent house wine cellar, in fact, hosts more than 450 labels, originating mainly from the local area. When the weather is hot, you can also eat on the panoramic terrace under the shade of the linden trees, while in winter your meals will be heated by the slow and welcoming fire of the large fireplace that gives the restaurant its name.
