On arrival the owner has welcomed us very warmly and led to a table. Since we were in italy I decided to eat some Pasta. The pici noodles were handmade and so tasty. They were served with a wild boar Ragout which was delicious as well. The wine recommendation was excellent for the Food. You can also sit outside on... More

Stopped in on a whim from seeing the sign driving by and, man, so glad we did. They were very accommodating and gracious to seat us without a reservation. We ate hear several times due to the proximity of our house and it was a sheer delight each time. Farm fresh ingredients with skillful presentation. A must try if you... More

Whenever we are in Tuscany, we eat at Guastini. The first time was a pleasant surprise, but now we go knowing that we'll be having a really wonderful meal. Don't miss it if you are in the area!

Had a nice lunch there even though it was late, good thing they stayed open until 2pm. The local traditional pasta, known as pici, resembling very long thick noodle, paired with a ragu sauce, was very tasty. A bit on the salty side in the preparation for our party. The patio over looking a beautiful valley was where we were... More

Our hosts Antonella & Massimo from the tower recommended this place. We visited the place on our first night in Valiano (well first night in Tuscany). All I can say out of all the places we dined at this was by far the the best. We started with their heavenly homemade pasta - Tagliatelle with ragu of Oca for my... More

Great setting for a Tuscany restaurant. This is a small restaurant in the small village of Valiano. It's within walking distance of our vacation villa, La Badiole. Steps lead down to an outside covered deck that looks out over the valley. Excellent food and service. They were able to quickly accommodate a party of 10 and all were well pleased... More

Ten of us with a single regret - we ate lunch here on our last day at our villa. If we'd visited earlier, we surely would've come again. Ten of us "dropped in" for lunch and ate outside with views of the miles of vineyards...local wine, local oil, housemade bread and pasta, one more notch on the "different ravioli every... More

A five star restaurant does not have anything to envy to this little warm gem. Quality of food gourmet and outstanding with service to match. Small menu but every delicious.

Warm welcome, nice terrace with partial view on the countryside. Regarding the food, excellent eggplant “à la Parmigiana” and beef carpaccio, as well as delicious pasta. Two remarks though: the menu on the website is quite different from the one proposed on the spot. We arrived there with specific culinary expectations and had to adapt to what was available. Not...

Returned with friends for a leisurely Sunday lunch, where the range and quality of food was excellent and tasty, the service attentive and helpful (even moving the table when the sun moved round!) and as always great value for money. A real gem that you would not readily notice when driving through the village. Well worth stopping for it! It... More
