I have been a customer at this restaurant for over 12 years and have enjoyed many meals accompanied by great bottles of vino. Recently I enjoyed a sliced veal steak with white truffles. It was fantastic! I also enjoyed a great bottle of fonterutoli Chianti. This is a warm place with great service. It has a arid menu with many... More

A very typical Tuscan restaurant, with a selection of tuscan specialties. They have a very nice patio outside with a big grill, and they cook their seasoned meat, very good. The wine list is really amazing, you can find wines that you're not even thinking about. The price is absolutely fair, so it's the wines price, amazing. A very good... More

Such an enjoyable lunch in this v friendly, family run pizzeria (the menu is exhaustive so everyone will be happy). We enjoyed a delicious white pizza (without tomato) combined with a salad and have already promised to come back for an identical order before the end of our holiday. Lots of locals packing out the buzzy restaurant and very reasonable... More

On the way back home after two days in Tuscany we found this restaurant by chance. Food was good and dishes well portioned. We enjoyed "Tagliatelle al ragù" and "Grigliata mista" (grilled meat) alongside mix salad and grilled vegetables. The latter bit overpriced as we paid 6€ for 3 thick slices of courgette, 2 thick slices of aubergine and 2... More

We arrived at our agriturismo late I the evening so I stopped by Il Bivacco to get dinner. The staff speak English and in addition to takeout pizza you can also pick up some cold cuts, cheese, wine etc. The pizza was very good; we wanted to go back for a family lunch or dinner but ran out of time.

We arrived late at night having just arrived in Italy and the pizza was crispy and very good - not sure that there was much other than pizza though. The house wine was good, and it is a good place to stop. Has a large car park.

We ate here while staying at Castello Monastero in search of more authentic cassalinga. This place delivered. Endless truffle offerings. Amazing pastas, meats and pizza! Being able to watch the grill master at work in the garden was an added bonus. Great selection, quality and value! Service also top notch!
