We had a lovely tour around the estate, the cellar and the gardens, a small wine tasting and then moved to the vineyard and wine making facility where we also had an incredible picnic. Great views and such lovely people who really give you personal attention. Does not feel commercial at all. Would highly recommend going here for tour and picnic or any of the other experiences. Great value! Also happy we have an importer in our hometown. Thank you so much.

We booked a tour and wine tasting after lunch in the restaurant. We had a fantastic lunch and it’s lovely views and great service.

The tour and wine tasting lasted ver 90 mins and we were really well liked after by our guide who spoke perfect English and was able to switch between her native Italian with some clients and us. We were 8 in the group. All worked Covid secure and sensible precautions unlike others have mentioned.

The Abbey is an amazing place, well worth a visit in its own but why wouldn’t you eat here as well!!

Oh dear!

These days eating out involves more than a financial Investment - it’s also a risk assessment of previously unimaginable health concerns. That’s why eating in a place we’ve known and loved for years should have been a safe bet on both fronts. Sadly, this was not our recent experience, so much so that we feel compelled to post an adverse review by way of warming to others.
Let’s start with the food which was, in a word, disappointing. Lamb that had been overcooked perhaps a day or two earlier and smothered in some tasteless gloop, pork that was dry and tasteless, drizzled with what looked like the mint sauce the menu had described as part of the lamb dish ! And to top it off, a cheesecake that tasted of nothing other than gelatine. All this from a restaurant adjacent to a cookery school.
Enough said.

What was most disconcerting however was the large and loud group of 6/7 people who sauntered in late, without masks making no effort to adhere to local COVID measures, nor were they asked to. It’s one thing for guests to behave irresponsibly and without respect for health and safety measures but it’s another for the proprietors to allow this.

We left as soon as we could, feeling unsafe and dissatisfied for the first time in our 2020 visit to Tuscany. That said, there’s a bigger issue here and please owners, address it without delay. Whatever about the subpar food, you cannot let health regulations slip

Back for the third time as it remains my favourite restaurant in Toscana.
The combination of a nice menu with regional ingredients but a modern twist, great wines, good service and a fantastic view just make the package.
As I have some dietary restrictions I ordered à la carte and my boyfriend the tasting menu. Every dish was delicious.
We just enjoy every time we visit, that's why I love coming back every time I am in the region.
See you next time!
