Review on Break house

Near The towns of Loro CIUFFENNA where we stayed, we found this great restaurant,, where they serve wonderful choices of seafood and meat dishes. Even if you don't know Italian well, their menu is easy to understand, sectioned in two categories under “mare” (sea) and “terra” (earth). Since they serve mainly to the local nearby workers, the food was excellent and very reasonably priced. The service was super good and we went twice for the lunch. Besides menu dishes, they have 4-5 different daily lunch options. My husband had daily special of oxe tail which he thought very well cooked. My seafood pasta, caramari first day and scampi second day were both delicious, clearly showing that they just prepared fresh pasta. We walked out with surprisingly small bill around €30 which included a glass of wine, beer and bottle of water. The resort we were staying was full of Americans in tiny dining room for dinner with almost no choice but meat dishes, this restaurant’s Seafood menu was god send and listening Italian languages spoken around our table made us feel that we are not on the carribean cruise. Dinner we had on the next day was memorable. With fish dish for me and great staked or my husband after great pasta dish. Chianti wine they recommended was excellent and again service was excellent. . I wish la Ferriera, the resort we stayed didn't have high priced mandatory half board so that we can experience more local restaurants like this. We had to forfeit one dinner, but it was worth it.

We discovered this restaurant by accident. What a pleasant surprise it gave our family! (It was a Monday and therefore the two restaurants we went to were closed!)
We loved the fish, steak, salad, wine AND THE DESSERT! All these recommended food were awesome. Needless to say, the service was fantastic!
We hope to be back here someday SOON!
Ciao,

We happened upon the Break House on our first day, on the way from Florence Airport to our hotel in Loro Ciuffenna, near Montevarchi, Italy. We were a bit late for lunch but the manager put out complimentary prosecco, big, wonderful cold platters and these individually sized vegetable flans that were hot and like clouds in your mouth. We were jet-lagged so simply asked the waiter to bring out some local wine. The waiter, Marco, matched the food with some great, local white and red wines that were perfect. Marco made an excellent attempt to translate when necessary. We were not rushed or hovered over at all. Great time. We enjoyed it so much that we scrapped plans to eat elsewhere and had dinner here two more times - excellent wood-fire bar-b-que for the local meats one night and excellent branzino another night. Excellent wine pairings. The restaurant was busy each night both with large local families and groups of young (20's) Italians, so they pleased everyone!

My holiday in Tuscany coincided with Mothers Day date in U.K.(but not in Italy) and I was taken for a celebration meal to this lovely restaurant.
Staff were really friendly,menu had English translations,and the local food was varied, meat ,pasta and fish. I had lovely sea bass (fish is bought daily from market) everyone else had a variety of dishes and all were enjoyed. Prices on menu were reasonable but as I did not pay the bill I cannot comment on total, but as my son did not comment on receiving the bill it must have been O.K.
