They don't have an extensive menu, but whatever they have is quite good and so good in fact that we came here twice for dinner. We had the steak one night - 60 ounces that they will only serve rare. The waiter promised that it would be warm in the middle and there would be no blood. He was right... More

The restaurant "La sosta di Pio VII" is the must visit for anyone who wants to experience the real Tuscany. The ambiance is just amazing, very unique and exclusively vintage. The best Bistecca alla Fiorentina ever! I honestly think it was the best stake I have ever tried. It was as tender as you basically do not need to chew... More

I have eaten in this restaurant many times, both lunch and dinner, all year round and it's always a great meal. I've recommended it to plenty of people when visiting the area and they all agree: excellent. And it's definitely worth a little detour if you are visiting San Gimignano, for example. In summer the outdoor dining area is gorgeous... More

My birthday dinner spot in Barberino Val d'Elsa. Food here was excellent! The place was listed in a recommended restaurant list from the villa I stayed at and decided to try it. Service was great with recommendations on dishes since I'm a vegetarian. I started with ribollita, pasta in a cheese bowl and the biscotti with Vin Santo for dessert.... More

Very popular restaurant, make sure you book. Food was all excellent, only problem was the quaint handwritten menu which is rather difficult to read when you're translating to English. Staff were very knowledgeable and helpful.

Another popular restaurant close to where we were holidaying. Great food and service with friendly staff. Lots of locals here too enjoying the various dishes available. We sat out on the terrace which, despite being next to the road, noise didn't detract from our lunch. We would eat here again no question

We visited La Sosta do Pio VII having been recommended by our holiday accommodation landlady. We asked, "if we were eating out only one night, which restaurant would you recommend?" So we ended up at La Sosta and the recommendation was spot on. A very local feel to the decor. I believe we were the only non-locals in there. Incredibly... More
