Quite small restaurant on the Main Street, lovely vaulted ceiling which creates a nice atmosphere. Very tasty pasta starters, fantastic main of Chianti beef with sides of veg. Chocalate fondant to die for! Small local reasonably priced wine list. Friendly and informative service.Extremely good price for the quality of the food,one of the best restaurants of the week. Brilliant!!

Small restaurant with only 6-7 tables so it feels quite romantic and intimate. Great service and great food. I recommend the rabbit ragu with white truffle! Fantastic value.

This was our first time in this little corner of Tuscany and we were generally a bit disappointed in the restaurants. Antica Farmacia was by far the best restaurant meal we had during our week in here. This is a small, characterful place with about 7-8 tables. We had one of the two tables as you first enter, and then... More

Delightful, typically Tuscan menu with a few extra twists. Excellent flavours, lovely simple presentation and super service from the single waitress. Small but attractive room and a fair wine list.

You would not expect to find such a good restaurant in a small town like Palaia. A very cosy restaurant, that seems very popular in the area. We were lucky to arrive just as the restaurant opened (at 19.45) and consequently got a table. Several guests arrived later and had to reserve for a following day. The service was excellent... More

The food in this very small restaurant is good quality with fresh ingredients and some unusual touches. The lady who serves gives great descriptions of the dishes in good English. She seems to be on her own, however so service is very slow and we waited a long time for drinks, menus etc. Definitely worth a night out if you... More

OK, we had a good dinner but they are rated number 1 in Palaia while to our taste there are better restaurants in Palaia. However, service was awesome,the little lady is a bit alone to man the place.

What a fantastic local restaurant! Right on the main street of Palaia, Antica Farmacia is easy to locate. Inside, the atmosphere is wonderful. On entering the restaurant, you are given a menu (in Italian) which is the verbally explained in English with fairly detailed descriptions of all dishes. Bread and water is also offered. All around our table enjoyed their... More

We went to Antica Farmacia for dinner. The waitress was very helpful and very kind, she was even speaking English. The menu is short and contains only dishes from fresh ingredients. We were 9 of us and tasted several dishes: all were excellent! I highly recommend this restaurant for everyone who likes to eat good food in a cosy place.
