We booked dinner on the recommendation of the hotel we were staying in and it was fantastic. The hospitality was warm and generous , the food all freshly cooked and beautifully presented. The streak was very good and the duck superb. The wine recommendation complemented the food perfectly. In fact this was do good we went back on out last... More

The woman (owner) of the restaurant was very nice, and we enjoyed her local wine recommendation. The gentleman who took our food orders was rather gruff and impatient. He automatically gave us English menus, and nearly argued with us when we requested menus in Italian (for those in our party who spoke Italian). Luckily the owner stepped in and provided... More

We found it difficult to book this restaurant , we called many times and visited twice.On the second occasion we found someone there to speak to. The food at the restaurant was well presented and tasty. The atmosphere in principle was beautiful, with lovely views and well chosen table wear. The only thing that I found a slight issue was...

Fantastic location both in winter and summer. In summer the terrace offers a nice view on the valley of the Valdarno, whilst in winter the cosy and carefully decorated interior is ready to offer you a romantic evening with very good food, based on traditional Tuscan recipes and an interesting choice of excellent wines. Limited menuecard which does not change... More

The restaurant is small but very nice. The food is great, and the service very nice. Only two people to Care for the guests, but they take good Care of all of them.

Recommended by the owner of our Hotel this was a wonderful experience. Such a beautiful location with lovely views and a very warm reception from the lady owner. The food and wine was such a high standard and would go as far as saying one of the best meals we have ever enjoyed anywhere in the world. If we are... More

This is not an ordinatry Italian restaurant. It was recommended by an Italian friend. The dishes were excellent. Especially the antipasti. The service was great! Very nice owner! The daughter of the owner speaks English very well. In may 2016 we plan to visit La Cantinella again!

This is one of the best meals I had the entire trip (if not the best). Ristorante La Cantinella is a fantastic restaurant to go to if you end up staying in that villa. I’ll be honest, the food was amazing, but not amazing enough to travel far to try, so if you’re staying in Florence, I’ll have recommendations in... More

This area has a number of restaurants to which I have given one of my rare 5 Point restaurant ratings. So, it spoke volumes that we went to La Cantinella on three consecutive nights. On the first night, we each ordered the assorted appetizer plate. It was artistically presented and tasted even better. Alas, it was so filling that we... More
