I have visited quite some michelin starred restaurants and I did not know what to expect in La Bottega del 30. Let me tell you, both the food and location are amazing. There is a fantastic welcome and explanation of the menu by the chef, a lovely lady with a great passion for food. The wine is carefully selected by... More

Beautiful setting for great food. Excellent wine cellar. Try the wine risotto and the wild boar. Very friendly staff and nice pace of service. Be sure to make a reservation if you are traveling there in the busy season. One of best of many great restaurants in the Chianti region for dinner.

La Bettega del 30 was recommended to us by some friends that visited Tuscany a few months prior to our trip. I'm so glad we took their recommendation as this place was truly one of my favorite restaurants in all of Italy. Each course was carefully prepared and tasted very homemade. We also had a delicious bottle of wine that... More

La Bottega del 30 gives a whole new meaning to "hidden gem." There are 4 restaurants in the small walled town of Villa A Sesta. La Bottega is at the "back" of the village, yet actually quite easy to find. We had the tasting menu which was like nothing we have ever had before! Each dish was better than the... More

Its small intimate and terrific.. yo'll need reservations and go a... More

This was a second visit after a gap of 2 years. The food was as amazing as the first time. The chef/owner talked us through what we could eat so we didn't see a menu. That didn't matter as everything was delicious. The service was great with a very helpful sommelier. Don't miss this place. Very rustic environment

This was our 3rd visit to a very special restaurant; a definite splurge but worth it at least once when visiting Tuscany. In a small hamlet with 4 excellent restaurants, this one shines above the rest. We had the tasting menu with 5 marvelous courses. The gnocchi with porcini mushrooms and truffle shavings was light as air - best gnocchi... More

This restaurant has everything one could hope for. A beautiful view overlooking the sunset (the best table is by the window), a friendly staff, and most importantly, fantastic food. After staying 2 weeks in the region and having ok but not outstanding food, we found La Bottega and had the pleasure of meeting Helène, the chef and owner, who cooked... More

We visited Bottega del 30 for a celebratory meal as we were staying in a nearby villa and were not disappointed. We were greeted by the owner chef, Helen and seated in the courtyard, the degustation menu was explained to us and many wonderful courses followed full of local produce and flavours. Wonderful ambiance and great food, a little expensive... More
