Having arrived at our remote hill-top rental house only 40 minutes before a reasonable time for dinner, the only realistic option was the trattoria in the village at the bottom of the hill. And what a terrific find! Our hostess Dominique was charming, informative and passionate about her food. Since we were on this occasion the only diners in the... More

Simple restaurant with interesting Tuscan food Two of us had mushroom and Ceci soup and one had pici, home made spaghetti with tomato sauce. We all had the stewed chicken with a side dish of peppers. Good and very reasonably priced.

Good simple food in a quiet little village. If you can find it don't miss it. Two of us stopped late afternoon for pranzo and were served a delicious meal and treated like family by Dominique the owner, host, cook. A wonderful contrast to crowded and busy San Gimi.

The Dai Galli has much to recommend it - location, charm, ambience and, above all, la cucina. We had dinner in the courtyard, under a vine-covered awning. The area is filled with overflowing flower pots, all carefully tended. The service was charming and efficient. All the dishes we ordered were well-presented and of a high standard. Ciciano is a little... More

We went for dinner and it took more than two hours to have a simple plate of badly cooked pasta and a beef steak with sauce! The menu is really short, nothing really appealing but prices were as restaurants in Firenze! Restaurant was full but only one chef and one waitress....so imagine the service level...and all tables had been booked... More

This is a family run restaurant. They pay close attention to detail and the menu changes daily. We have eaten there twice, once for lunch and once for dinner, and plan to go back at least once more before our vacation is over. The owner is friendly and helpful and she speaks English.

We found this place by accident. We were driving away from the rain and stumbled on this delightful bistro. The food was authentic Tuscan fayre. We were welcomed, served and cooked for by our host who chatted for a while about a number of things, her English was much better than our Italian. We will try to visit again if... More

Description
Since 2004 in Ciciano, is situated between the villages of Chiusdino and Montieri, the “Val di Merse” (river Merse Valley) and the “Colline Metallifere” (Metalliferous Hills), on the antique Massetana, the road that joined Siena to Massa Marittima and the seaside…
The cuisine of this countryside restaurant has the peculiarities of the old home cooking, aslike the Landlady used to surprise her commensals with small newness, remaining anyway bonded to the Tuscan, Lombard and Piedmont traditional cuisines, origins of the Galli Family. The location is a piece of the family-home… and divides in two nice and warm rooms, in, spring and summer the flowery terrace is the main attraction of the restaurant, the shopping corner (open between April and October) offers good local cured meats and ewe’s milk cheeses, Tuscan, Tuscan wines,

the fragrances of the TASTY region!!
waiting for you soon in Ciciano!
