This is one of our favourite restaurants in Tuscany, we found it on our last visit here and had to return, we really enjoyed it again.
San Sano is a bit off the main road but it is a beautiful little village, the restaurant is at the centre.
This is not fine dining but good wholesome Tuscan family dining. Plenty of game and braised meats but the staple pasta dishes and Fiorentina steaks are also good. The presentation of the dishes can be a little clumsy but the flavours are outstanding. They also have a very good and well priced wine list.
The overall experience here is great, highly recommend.

Read the reviews below, all good so little to add except to say we also enjoyed our meal there.

They have just about enough English to make choosing dishes easy and with somebody who needed a gluten free meal it was painless.

We're even considering going back again later this week because we enjoyed it so much

In this very small village you can smell the stove of the kitchen of La grotta. Very friendly Owner guides you through his shop of wine and antipasti to the cosy restaurant. The service is friendly and open for suggestions from the menu. The menu is to the point and rural of origin. Nice, honoust food with a fine rural chianti next to it.
In Total the check was for 4 persons (of which 2 children) 150 euro. Not cheap but worth your money.
Italian dinner like you want it to be.

Recommended by our innkeeper ar Borgo Argenina, this restaurant was a very nice surprise. A small place with excellent local food and super wine list. David and his father made us feel at home.

Definitely worth a visit, Family run restaurant with friendly staff, great selection of wines at non inflated prices, traditional rustic food and generally nice atmosphere and decor . even managed to accommodate me being a vegetarian.

Had two very enjoyable evenings there. Thanks David.
