We spent the night at the B&B so we booked reservations for dinner. We had read so many great reviews so we were truly looking forward to this dinner. First problem for us was that they do not offer an english menu, which maybe isn't a big deal for the majority of their customers. They did an ok job of... More

The four of us called on the way back to our accommodation after a long day in Florence. We were the only people there for the first 15 minutes or so but the waiter kept us entertained with his enthusiastic explanation/translation of the menu. We ordered a taster of their starters and various mains - all of them were excellent... More

The Il Grillo Moro is part of the Casa di Campagna B&B where we spent a week. There are not too many options without the need to move your car around and yet, the Il Grillo Moro wasn't just the default. We dined there several times and truly enjoyed it!

We enjoyed dinner here thanks to a recommendation from our friends at Il Ceppo B&B. Amazing antipasto as a starter with a beautiful salami that was made locally. The wine and olive oil all from local producers. The main dish was Cinghiale (wild boar stew) amazing! I would highly recommend.

The service, food and atmosphere are why you come to Italy. The gnocchi is the best I have ever had. It is a light tasty potato based gnocchi in an outstanding cream sauce. The steak is cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth. The waiters were very entertaining and provided excellent service. Will go again when I return!

What a great Tuscan restaurant, recommended by a local to us. Although close to Siena it was full of Italian families when we visited for Sunday lunch. The Fiorentina steak, easily enough for 2 or more go share is an absolute must. Plus of course the magnificent singing waiter:)

The restaurant

the Tuscan and 'a land of balance, "happy medium", where strong traditions, climate and culture tell a

gastronomic history ancient, simple and tasty but deliberately simple.

On this principle was born the restaurant "the cricket moro", from recipes to melia grandmother, and aunt of nena brown

, written on small exercise books faded and sometimes oil-stained days of threshing.

Today our passion for cooking and 'became profession.

Pici with dumplings and noodles made by hand, with show-cooking dishes such as "joke of Chianina

filippo ", but most of the cricket moro

"The ciccio bono".

Our attention in the selection of meat, matured for 33 days in vertical on and off and in

cooking, makes us one of the best places to eat in Florence in Tuscany.

The rite of its cut, Ext "filleting" with love and precision, the hot plate at 140 degrees, the salt of

Volterra, oil "dievole" and black pepper make the magic of this moment.

Our smile, friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a nostrale of modern times with old values, you

expect in our house.

Soon filippo and his staff
