This is a restaurant in Barbiscio, just outside Gaiole. We enjoyed our hosts’ warm hospitality and their enthusiastic introduction of their menu and wines, the excellent food and the cosy warm ambience. It’s an experience not to be missed. Highly recommended!

Cozy inside near the open fire, or when it’s warm, grab a table on the terrace outside ... either spot is perfect to enjoy Il Papavero’s delicious Tuscan cuisine. Don’t miss the Parmesan Basket appetizer ... my favorite!

Of all of the restaurants we tried in the 7 days we were in Chianti we rated this one highest. We especially loved the Tuscan bean soup with the black cabbage and the duck gnocchi was amazing!
