Ok, so we booked this cutest restaurant by chance an hour before dinner time. We hoped for a nice, not too "well known" place... in a cute village. Well, it was exactly that! The primi & secundi piatti we had (Spaghetti with home made pesto, Chianina Taratare and Pig carpaccio) were extremely original and had some refreshingly original tastes. Desert... More

I stayed in the tiny village of Vagliagli over a long weekend for L'Eroica. It boasts two trattoria (but nothing else) and this is the real gem. I prepped for my ride via a very warm welcome from a great staff team and chef who clearly loves her very fine Tuscan food. Small menu and better for it. First time... More

We were a party of 12, staying in a nearby villa in the town. We drove 5 minutes to the restaurant, where we had booked a reservation online. The owner greeted us, and advised with a small kitchen and a large party, there could be some delays if there was a lot of variety in the orders. As a result,... More

We are real foodies. We visit Osteria La Botte beginning of June. Despite the 30 minutes drive off road coming from San Felice, it was really worth it. We ordered the misticanza di verdure and the Chianina beef tartare. Both dishes are master pieces, but the beef tartare was soo good that we end up to order it 3 times... More

For years, my family and I have stayed at an agriturismo near Vagliagli. Last year, the proprietors of the agriturismo invited us to join them in town for dinner at Osteria la Botte. My elderly parents, on their first trip to Tuscany, came along as well. Laura, La Botte's owner and chef, greeted us like family then went back and... More

Osteria la Botte is a hidden gem within the quaint little town of Vagliagli. Hands down the best meal we had in Italy! My husband and I joke that we are self-proclaimed food critics, but really we're not hard to please. In general we like simple but creative meals that let fresh ingredients shine, and Osteria la Botte truly delivered.... More

We ate wonderful pasta here, it was so good we went back later in the week for more..... The staff were very welcoming and the Chef came out to check if we were happy with the food. Great place to eat, highly recommend it.

We didn't book as it was just after Easter and quiet, it was half full, but they don't have many tables under the arches, all with clean white table linnens and big wine glasses. The menu was certainly interesting with things like snails and a salad with goats cheese plus the usuals homemade pasta and steaks offcourse.... The staff were... More

Incredible medieval ambience eating under the arches in this stone and terracotta room, creative cuisine, Tuscan flavours with an international flair. The town of Vagliagli in itself has a charm of its own, almost magical. Take time to visit town before of after your meal. Two birds with one stone MAGIC.
