Had a fantastic lunch at this restaurant. You could easily drive past it and not see it so slow down on the approach !

We had a great meal at this restaurant which is obviously a favourite with locals. Food was lovely and we enjoyed traditional Tuscan dishes and wine. Would definitely revisit if in the area.

This restaurant seems to be in the middle of nowhere, but obviously it has a big reputation, because it was packed both times we visited! Loved the pizza and the pasta with Ragu, and the Sant Appiano wines!! Amazing Tuscan dining experience!

We stayed in a villa very close to St Appiano and walked to this place and booked a meal. I would say that I have never had a more enjoyable evening in a restaurant - seriously. The food was perfect and thoroughly Tuscan. I had ox tail which was perfectly cooked and presented. The staff were excellent and managed the... More

Great experience eating at Osteria L'Antica. Our party had a mix of mains including the gigantic beef platter (sold by the kilo). All dishes were perfect and the wait staff was amazing (in spite of English being a killer difficult which is fine). Don't hesitate to go here!

Totally enjoyed eating at this restaurant. Food was great. Service was friendly. It was our first night in Italy and it was perfect. Low key, fresh food, locals eating there. The pasta was meat sauce was delicious. The cold lemoncello was fun. Never saw it served the same way in the 2 weeks we were in italy.

We stayed in Sant'Appiano for 7 days a few weeks ago. We went to the Osteria twice that week and we had such a fantastic time. Rebecca and her colleagues took excellent care of us! They created an atmosphere that gave us such a relaxed evening and in all we needed they were so very attentive and friendly. All the... More

Loved the terrace dining and the beautiful views. Food was great, reasonably priced and the children loved the adjacent play area.

An Italian menu the way an non-Italian dreams of eating during their vacation, with plenty pizza and pasta. The food was fine, for the most part, but don't tell the staff that your meat is undercooked (ordered medium, but I could swear that cow was still mooing), or you'll have a very drunk chef come out to your table and...
