My Italian husband had a craving for "fritto" - a plate of fried fish or seafood, so we reserved a table through The Fork. We started off with the "Antipastone di mare" - a plate big enough for two composed of several hors-d'oeuvres based on fish or seafood, including a small portion of steamed mussels. We then ordered two portions... More

Fish menu rich and delicious, recommend Outside terrace will give you the opportunity to stay tuned with the city life and miss nothing. Gentile personnel which will gently explain and suggest you if you can decide what to choose.

We headed to this restaurant having asked for advice the staff of one of the city's museums, previously visited. The advice proved right: we ate well, the service was friendly and fast, the bill was fair. This was our experience: some of us chose a first course (pasta with gorgonzola cheese and radicchio, artichoke ravioli with fresh tomatoes), others have... More

This is by far the restaurent where I went most often. You need to get there pretty soon after they open at 19:00, otherwise you need to wait for ~1 hour to get a seat. They make amazing italian-style pizza :) My favorite was Chiara Tutto Gusto. I ordered it so many times that I still remember the name weeks... More

The 2 of us ate at La Buca di Ipo one evening without making a reservation. An easy trattoria style restaurant with traditional Tuscan dishes and fish courses. Food wise, no complaints. We ate well and we were quite satisfied. Slow and kind of stressed service. Affordable prices.

Initially, we thought 'what a shabby restaurant' but after seeing all the locals eating here we decides to give it a try. The antipasti, a mix of differnt chees and meats, was reasonably good. The main course was below average, with cold meat on the tagliate.... More

Every year we come to Italy and stay in Moncioni in the mountains not far from Montevarchi. We frequently eat at la buca di ipo with our friends Bob and Ally. The pizzas are great and there's a good wine list. We usually sit outside because inside it's usually a mob-scene. This place is very popular with the locals and... More

Great pizza, great atmosphere, great prices. The sort of place Tuscany does so well. Reserve if you want to eat outside.
