This place surprised us all. Set in the small hilltop town that always seemed to have desolate streets, we arrived at L'Antica Borgo and found ourselves in a very nice, elegant, and comfortable restaurant with amazing hardwood used for beams and stairs, areas of old stone incorporated into the rooms, and eclectic old decorations that made for a great feel....

We spend one night in this tiny " borgo" in the middle of the valley It is full of history due to the famous Massacre in Val Di Chiana in 1944. Just hundred of inhabitants with a marvelous location The restaurant was very good , excellent home made pasta It is worth the detour if you want a quiet dinner

A modest sized restaurant with a quiet atmosphere. The appearance is somewhat rustic, but very comfortable. Pleasant ambiance. A bit price, but the food is excellent.

It is with great sadness I discovered the wonderful restaurant L'Antico Borgo is no more. The talented young chef and proprietor Vito has closed up and left. His reputation has gone with him. The hotel next door, also called L'Antico Borgo, has opened a restaurant which is confusing because they are using the same name. I was very disappointed with... More

L'antico borgo has a problem - its location, down a back street, and away from the view out over the countryside enjoyed by the restaurant down the hill. As a result in the summer it can be very empty. But if you pass it and no one is in there, don't be put off; it's a great restaurant. The food... More

We have been twice to this restaurant recently. Both times we have had really fantastic food , good local wines and very friendly service. The restaurant is in a brick built archway let into the old town wall. The ambience is informal and delightful. highly recommended to any food enthusiast. .
