Lovely views, great food and service! Very nice plating. Highlights of our meals were the gnocchi with duck sauce, perfectly seasoned/cooked steak, and the lemon chocolate cake.

Friends and I dined at Osteria Il Papavero twice during our one week stay at a close by villa. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was fantastic. As was their wine recommendations. Stunning views of the sunset. Make sure you book to avoid disappointment.

Had both lunch and dinner here on our stay in Chianti. Very laid back and comfortable restaurant, small and charming in a small hilltop village. The food was excellent, both tasty and creative with wonderful service. The waitress spoke perfect English if necessary and couldn't...More

After visiting this lovely little restaurant perched on the top of a hill overlooking the valley below I can see why it is ranked #2 in the region. The village setting is very scenic (apparently dates back 1000 years) and the restaurant is small but...More
