Night but we arrived at opening time. We shared some spicy pasta and a pork steak with grilled fennel in a tomato sauce. We finished with some cantucci and... More

We arrived pretty late this noon. They did everthing to let us feel not welcome. Finally they asked to wait 15 min. Italian visitors got several tables without waiting. Being ignored is terrible..

We spent a week in San Giovanni d'Asso in a rental and had the pleasure of eating at this charming small restaurant on two occasions. Both times we had a delicious meal and enjoyed the kind service and great atmosphere. The restaurant inside is more atmospheric and cozy than is suggested by the exterior decor. Donatello cooks up terrific Tuscan... More

We've been trying different restaurants while staying nearby. Osteria dell Crete didn't disappoint! We had pork chops, pici (pasta) with cheese and lemon, veal medallions, antipasti, caponata and the puff pastry with marscapone cream and raspberries. All wonderful! Definitely worth visiting again!

Great dishes which offers you a retelling of some traditional Tuscany dishes. The sweets are really a surprise. The wine list is very high level lists. You can enjoy also the aperitifs during the day: the proposed wines and dishes are really able to give you good emotions.

We rented a villa for our family down the street. Their food was wonderful (be sure to try the pasta with truffles) and the family could not have been nicer or more accommodating,even to the point of making takeout meals for 15. This is one of those small family restaurants that make Italy so famous.

You can try different Tuscany dishes and highly recommend to combine with wine. I tried ravioli with pecorino and local red wine. Wine helped to taste pecorino a lot. Try various interesting food and enjoy Tuscany dishes and wine.
