“Better than expected”
Review of Il Vecchio

Il Vecchio
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 10 July 2017

The restaurants at Norcenni Girasole in general were better than we expected for a camping destination but then the Italians themselves would probably not settle for anything less on their vacation! This was the restaurant on site we returned to most as it had a good selection and everything we had was nice. The salads are huge and very fresh and tasty. My favourite dessert was their house Tiramisu. Staff are friendly, service is good to begin with but we found we were left waiting alot then in favour of the larger tables. It was ad hoc as to whether we got bread, oil and balsamic at the beginning and had to ask for it. Then you might get the oil but not the balsamic! Got the wrong bill on one occasion probably due to the busyness of the place. As with most Italians, staff take this all in their stride! There is a nice view from the terrace but all areas of the restaurant pleasant to eat in.

As a couple, one could argue this is a family place, and one would be right. Kids are yelling, and watching iPad, while it's also allowed to smoke in the outdoor seating arrangement while others are eating. Discusting and unacceptable imo. That being said, the menu also contains a few "landmines" but there are also items that are acceptable, like the seafood risotto. I ate there 3 times with my GF, and even if we weren't going home tomorrow, we would not be coming back.

Ristorante Girasole
'Il Veechio'

Back out on holidays and dined last night in the fab spot!

I started with Carpaccio and then had the Ribs followed by Tiramisu!

We were brought prosecco when we sat with the kids getting Sprite in their glasses the starters were all fab, my mains while it may look nothing was a filling dish simply cooked on the grill and full of flavour, desert was again lovely, we finished with espresso and Disaronno. Naturally we tried a nice Chianti Classico

The staff were friendly yet professional in a very busy restaurant. Well done all keep up the good work

Super well run part of the Norcenni Girasole complex overlooking the Tuscan hills.
Reasonably priced menu.

We went to this restaurant as we were staying on the same site it is situated.

We both had the wild boar ragu and it was amazing. It was served with home made tagliatelle which was amazing. This dish reminded me of a spaghetti bolognese but the boar tasted slightly stronger than normal beef and it was lovely!

Highly recommended and the prices weren't overly expensive at €9 a dish!
