We chanced upon Ristorante ll Conventino purely by chance. We needed to eat and walked the few miles from our B&B. It's a classic Italian bar/restaraunt for locals. We had a great time there and the food was good. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. Very local. We loved Calci and all it offered. Real Italy.

Had dinner with friends at this restaurant. Admittedly we found the food quite heavy and salty, not the light kind of fresh, Italian food one has in mind. That was also the feeling of the place, quite heavy, dark and old fashioned. A very annoying extemely long table cloth kept getting caught under my feet. The waiters were polite.The location...

A great location for an Italian restaurant, at the top of a hill hear Caprona. After driving up an old winding road (caution is needed as it is very now and steep in places), we discovered a great restaurant in a historical building, with views over the valley below. The food was good, having had the steak, and the accompanying... More

We visited the family-run Il Conventino for lunch as a group of 14 people as a "pitstop" under our mountain walking. The atmosphere was friendly and efficient. We were served some lovely dishes. The staff was most helpful for some special needs for food that accured. All in all a very recommendable experience.

Great location, quite hard to reach, but with stunning view and tiny little village annexed that adds to the magic. We came here on a Sunday, the place was packed and probably not at its best. Food was ok, quite pricey, service was a bit shoddy. I would go back on a weekday when probably there are less people, to... More

I stayed in agriturismo accommodation nearby I enjoy my evening. Restaurant has an amazing view. Food was good. I got a basket of still warm forcaccio bread, selection of crostini and pasta with walnut sauce. Pasta dish was a bit disappointing but overall I enjoyed. I had glass of house wine ( unfortunately was driving) and payed €17 best value... More

We dined here two nights running, it was so good. Great meat dishes and fungi porcini (cepes), good wine and a nice atmosphere, and at a very reasonable price.

Small local restaurant, had the feel of being family run. Exquisite food, wonderful friendly service, good range for vegetarians too. Wine list was fine, and the wine we chose was very good too. Quiet when we were there, would definitely go back if I was in the area

We had one of the best meals of our holiday here. Despite arriving a bit before the official opening time (8pm) we were welcomed in and every effort was made to ensure we had a delicious meal. Don't miss the crostini antipasti, a delicious range of pestos and local vegetables. Great wines also, well worth a visit if you are... More
