We had a group dinner at this restaurant and the feeling after wards is quite average, l was expecting more, due to a lot of positive reviews. Starter crespelle with vegetables were ordinary not anything, wow effect. First course was a tris of pasta, ravioli,...tagliatelle, and gnocchi, none of them was astonishing, just regular, but probably the best in the all meal. Second course Arista was very poor, four thin slices and no guarniture. Many of the basic requirements for covid-19, were not met. Big plates to share between us, parmigiano cheese not in a single use package, bottle of liquor left on the table and then reintegrate in the shelf with other liquor after use. The two girls serving the table were really nice and helpful, the owner not much enthusiastic and smiley during the service. Can definitely improveMore

This is a lovely little place, hidden up on a quiet mountain road, but worth the trip. They make fresh pasta with local, seasonal ingredients. The nettle pasta was delicious, so soft and delicate. The chestnut flour pasta was very tasty but a little tougher,...but so nice to have something different and of the area. The service was a little slow but the food was delicious and worth the wait. The turkey rolls are yummy. The apple strudel wasn't great so fill up on the savoury courses. I'd happily go back if in the area.More

Nased on a tripdvisor review we tried out this restaurant on the way back to the airport in Florence, We didn’t realize it was somewhat off the beaten track and on the way we were’t sure if we hadn’t lost our bearings. It was definitely...worth the trip. We had amazing home cooked food. No fuss, just authentic ingredients prepared well. Bring time, because freshly cooked meals take time but it is worth the wait. Don’t expect anything fancy, in German one would say “bodenständig”. We just had time for antipasto and primi piatti, but were more than satisfied when we were done. We sat outside just where the road takes a turn but given the minimal traffic this was not a problem. In Pisa the temperature was 30 degrees Celsius, at the restaurant we just reached 20 degrees. We would definitely go back.More

We couldn’t wait to get back to the Molino and eat… we came in July 2015 for my sister’s wedding and it was every bit as good as we remembered. A delightful atmosphere in the winter with a cosy fire! It was interesting as an...Australian, seeing four dogs in a small space (all owned by different table guests) but they were well behaved and sat quietly while we indulged in a three hour culinary experience. Highlight dishes were the fresh cheese platter, antipasto, tortellini and the turkey roll. Each bite is so beautifully crafted with herbs and flavours that enhance the freshly made pasta, bread and cakes. The liquor to end and coffees are a nice touch and house wine is delicious. Around 25 euros each- all inclusive!More

Even if you aren’t staying nearby, it is worth driving to this tiny area with gorgeous surroundings for an authentic local meal. The anti-pasty were delicious especially the local polenta. Both of the pasta dishes we ordered were delicate and perfectly balanced. Our main courses...were also great but we were so full I don’t think we appreciated them nearly as much as we could have. We couldn’t make it as far as dessert since we had indulged in so many choices from the menu. But, the table next to us were sharing several desserts and seem to be enjoying all of them. The table wine was great service was excellent the atmosphere is cozy and warm. This would be a wonderful place to warm up and have a comforting meal after a hike on a cold day.More

It's hard to expand something so out of ordinary. Isn't just one of the best meal I ever had in my life but also the atmosphere that can drive anyone back in times. All the for is hand made by the chefs and local farmers....Definitely is a must to visit not just for the one that are passing by but is a trip to plan for anyone on holiday in florence..... The beauty of the Italian country side is the magic of a lost culture that still hold itself far from our frenetic civilizzation Please try the involtini and tagliolini all'ortica with speck and erba cipollinaMore

I ate at the Molino three times during my stay in Orsigna and all three times it was simply faultless, inspired and breathtaking food. The tender touch and care for the produce comes through in all of the dishes and the sheer depth and volume...and the dishes (variety and amount) was the best kind of surprise. The setting is unique, the service unbeatable and the food is sensational. My favourite was the beetroot gnocchi- but it was really amazing to just keep eating whatever dish came next. We visited from Australia and I can quite honestly say it would be worth a trip from anywhere in the world just to eat at this restaurant. Allow 4-5 hours and a day to recover! The best restaurant I've ever been to.More

"Molino di Berto" is a small but very nice restaurant located on the Tuscan mountains where you can taste typical Italian food. The restaurant is placed in restored mill in the small village of Orsigna. The pasta is all handmade daily by the chef (chestnut...flour pasta/ blue berries pasta/green pasta) and it is delicious. I ate there with my husband and we loved the friendly and relaxed atmosphere.More

Good home cooking at "normal" prices. No wine list just the house wine, which certainly could be improved upon. I had to remind one of the ladies working there not to forget to bring the vino to our table [outside]. While they prepared the pasta...dishes we ordered [good, but just that] we got offered some cheese to kill the time. Certo, grazie! The meat dishes we ordered were very good and I found my side dish, cooked red onions, very, very tasty. The bill for two came to 45 euros [including caffee but without any deserts], so one can not complain really... Oh, and a well maintained WC!More
