We visited Il Girarrosto for lunch after scootering around the area. We started with Seconda Piatto which was delicious. I had the Spaghetto Bardicchio which tasted amazing , and my wife had Tortello Pecorina what she says can only be described as the best pasta she has ever eaten. We had a glass each of the house white which was... More

We visited here early on in our stay, and had an excellent meal in really lovely surroundings indoors. The next time we visited, we ate outside at the back of the restaurant - again lovely food and excellent service. Could not fault a single thing. Worth a visit!

We stumbled on to this restaurant in Pontasseive, after a full day in Florence. Had a wonderful dinner which everyone in our party was pleased with. 2 days later, we found ourselves here again and this time we were treated to one of the best meals of our trip. The owner remembered us from the first visit and welcomed us... More

We stumbled over Il Girarrosto whilst staying in Pelago which does not have any restaurants and we were so happy we went back 2 nights later! The owner took the time to explain the menu as they have only currently got Italian menus as they have recently been changed so hopefully English ones will become available. The first time we...

Myself and family had a lovely meal here, the pizza was great and the grilled lamb chops were delicious. The staff were very friendly and kindly translated the menu for us. It was not too expensive, we would definitely return if in the area.

We discovered this restaurant almost by accident: Extraordinary food quality (very rare : the two parents and the two kids agreed on that!), ample choice, wonderful cakes, very interesting dishes from tuscany and excellent wine. We would particularly recommend their meat dishes...Probably the best restaurant experience we had in about 18 months.The owner, on top of that, is a charming... More

The place and food both are very good. The staff is also very good. The location is very close to the train station and center.

Food was superb but the host did nothing to make a difference. Menu is only in Italian, staff only speaks Italian and do not take the time to try to meet each other in the middle.

We were a party of 9 and were able to sit out on the terrace at the back. As there were 10 starters on the menu but one was unavailable we decided to have all nine to share ! There was a huge variety and they were all very good and in light of what we then had, a little... More
