We very well surprised by this nice agriturismo. The food is very good, the price is correct (we all had the menu but I would guess à la carte is similar) and the staff is very nice and adapted to all our requests. Manager is very nice as well. Only small downside the bathrooms.

If our stay hadnt recommended, very unlikely we would have found this place. You have to follow a little dirtroad to arrive at the beautiful backyard. We went twice, and didnt regret. Pasta, salad, meat, everything was great! Also very welcoming host. Worth driving a bit to get here.

Recommended this restaurant by our local agriturismo.
Off the beaten track. Stunning setting. Typical tuscan food, very reasonably priced.
The main reason I'm writing this review is because whilst we were perusing the menu, the owner brought us without any doubt the best focaccia I have ever tested. Crispy tangy crust, soft olive oil middle… honestly never tasted one quite like it.
We visited on a quiet night and were treated very well. Beer put in a cooler, Grappa selections brought out for tastings at the end of the meal… if you're in the area don't hesitate to drop in.

After a morning at the Spa in Rapolano we decided on this restaurant for lunch. It was the right decision. It took a little finding as the signs from the road were missing but with a bit of faith we turned off left and went down the track and found the host there to welcome us. Tuscany seems to be having a very slow start to the season and we were the only ones there. But that made us the very lucky ones. A super-fresh tuscan antipasto, homemade ravioli with a walnut sauce and steaks cooked over the fire to perfection, the best roast potatoes we have had in 11 years here in Tuscany and salad just from the garden. So many people are missing out if they do not try this restaurant, the host is welcoming, knowledgeable and his cook is excellent. ilFrantoio please, please, fix your road signs I am sure so many more people would come if they could find you.

the owner is very nice person and his cook is amazing. the food served is simple, but made from the local fresh ingredients and it is delicious. we enjoyed starters, pasta, meat, desserts, wine, coffee....everything...and all homemade.
the price is VERY good for what you get.
