Colle di Val d'elsa was the beginning of my 6-day Tuscany walk. It is a beautiful small hill town and I was very pleased to spent a day there. This biosteria was recommended in my trip notes and is located in the lower, newer part of town. The service was very warm and the owner/hostess was extremely charming and communicative.... More

I had a starter of hummus which could have had more flavor to it. Then, the pasta a la matriciana which was delicious and very large in portion. The wine was delicious,... More

I am not used to eating organic and vegan cousine, so I admit I am not an expert. But I think that people should try this kind of food, and this restaurant makes great dishes with vegetables and whole foods. The vine was very smooth, little sweet, also organic. The atmosphere in the restaurant is very relaxing and cosy, also... More

Sbarbicapolla Biosteria is a name which just doesn't roll off of the tongue easily, but you'll remember it for the delightful Foodie dishes which you enjoyed there. Has an inventive menu which highlights fresh organic produce prepared in memorable style. Also some great meat dishes for we Carnivores too. Enjoy. ...

Every time we travel to Italy we make sure to have at least a meal in this fantastic osteria. We love the appetizers and the many many vegetarian dishes. Plus Chiara always recommends the best white wine for our meal.
