Always enjoy Cucina. Great meats and starters. Their pici caccio e pepe is brilliant. The decor is typical and the setting wonderful.

We stayed in Colle di val d'Elsa for a week, and ate at this restaurant, twice. The menu was a selection of seasonal items, and everything we tried was delicious. The local wine was a good value. Our server was really nice, and she explained the different dishes to us, and she was glad to see us when we returned... More

We recently stayed in Colle di Val d'Elsa. Officiana Della Cucina was just down the street from Palazzo San Lorenzo, the hotel we stayed at. This was the second time we enjoyed eating there. And you know what they say if you are willing to go back, it must be really good! The service is always good and the menu... More

This is pretty much the only restaurant on the hill where San Lazaro hotel is. So Officcina's hostess and staff choose to behave extremely arrogantly and condescendingly. Who do they think they are? Gastronomic delight this place is not. Just OK.

We had a really nice meal here. This restaurant was bustling, so we were able to make a reservation for dinner. We split their pork platter and a salad - everything was fresh and tasty. Their home made bread is delicious and house wine was as well. Friendly service, higher prices - but you pay for the location.

We had a delicious meal sitting in the outdoor area. We didn't have a reservation, but we put in our name, wandered around the town a bit, came back 20 minutes later and were seated right away.My husband and I shared anchovy crustini and papa al pomodoro (tomato bread soup--outstanding!), pici in garlic sauce and pici with cheese and pepper...

We arrived into this charming town in the late afternoon at the end of "siesta time" when the streets were empty and everything was quiet. We walked along the streets and came across Officina Della Cucina Popolare. The restaurant was prepping for service and from the street, I peeked into the kitchen window and could see the chefs working away... More

Food was only average. I found the service and attitude of the staff far below what others have experienced. Would not go back nor recommend the restraint. Too many other great res truants in the area.
