Description: In the heart of Greve in Chianti, on the corner that leads into the square, where there was once an old staging post and, earlier still, the stables of Greve, there is still a peaceful and private place that’s well worth stopping by for a bite to eat. This has been the kingdom of Lucia, Duilia, Lisa, Saro for 33 years: a Tuscan family, three generations at the service of your taste buds, giving you a warm welcome. Lovely people with open and jovial smiles who only want to offer you healthy, genuine and no-frills food in light and welcoming rooms, where the Pompeian red dominates the walls in contrast with the white wood of the chairs and covers. It’s impossible not to start by enjoying one of the wonderful pasta dishes - all of which are strictly based on homemade pasta, every day like in the past, by grandmother Duilia, 85 years of freshness and energy, who, with her fail-safe method, states that all her pasta dishes are successful since nothing ever comes back into the kitchen! Filled pasta, tagliatelle and pappardelle also served with innovative sauces, but all thoroughly researched to enhance the pasta and authentic flavours of Greve. There’s an infinite choice, But the Enoteca Ristorante Il Gallo Nero, which started off with its two pillars - pasta and grilled meats - now offers much more. A reliable place where you eat well and everything at any time of the year since the menus here change with the seasons and the ingredients have no food miles. To finish, saving the best for last, it’s time for dessert, obviously all homemade. Delicious desserts to send the guests off home with a great memory of a lovely evening, washed down with a nice glass of wine perhaps as we shouldn’t forget that the cellar of Il Gallo Nero only contains great Chianti and Tuscan wines! A great dinner for everyone in this place where the hospitality and prices are like trattorias of the past, yet with the selection of culinary excellence worthy of a hip restaurant. A 100% successful marriage of two philosophies and an example that quality always pays, even at difficult times.

Nice location, right in Greve in Chianti. Only inside seats. Service is polite and professional but a little bit slow. My fiancé and I had here a dinner on a Sunday night. I ordered beef tartar as starter while my boyfriend had pasta. Then I had the grilled young rooster with potatoes (so few potatoes unfortunately) and my boyfriend had beef .
We wanted to orderd some more potatoes but they had out of them.
Adequate portions.
Regular prices.

We ate here tonight. The food the atmosphere the service was delightful
We called to let them know we would be late for our reservation and they were so gracious. We arrived and had the most delicious food. We had the velvet onion soup, pasta with boar and steak in a chianti Rosemary pepper corn sauce. All superb
I wish I could remember our waiter's name for he was great.
I totally recommend this restaurant

Lovely décor, very good service, excellent food, convenient location. Typical Tuscan menu. Food was well prepared and artfully presented. Very much recommend dining here when visiting Greve. Recommend go early (before 2000) as restaurant tends to fill up later in the evening. Looking for something a little different and very tasty? Try the rabbit.
