Lovely little place for an authentic Tuscan lunch. We stopped here our way to another village and were kindly welcomed by the owner. After spending 3 days in Tuscany I finally felt like I was actually here experiencing the lovely home made fresh food, with the sound of the animals in the background on the sunny but shaded terrace. Nothing flash but just pure authentic quality food. Great affordable prices too!!!

Ate twice here... good food.. not big portions, but well cooked & great flavours. Ate outdoors, eating & people watching- as its situated in the village square. Attentive service. Average prices.

We found this wonderful place here at TripAdvisor and decided to have a birthday dinner there tonight. The food, drinks and service was excellent. We had an aperitif, a starter, pizza, wine, dessert and digestif. Everything was perfect.

Regional Cuisine of Tuscany
The proprietor told us that his family has been in the restaurant business for several generations, and it shows. From the lineup up of olive oils, arranged from the mildest to the most robust so you can try them with delicious toasted bread whlle you wait for your meal, to the good advice in regard to which wine to order and which foods to try, this was a spectacular lunch. We felt so well taken care of. We wanted to order some pasta to share - no issue. I've been to restaurants that won't do this, or charge extra, here it was accommodated cheerfully. We loved the pasta with truffle sauce, the gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, the grilled beef with rosemary, the mixed salad. My friend, who comes to Italy often, said the minestrone was the best she had ever had. We had chocolate souffle for dessert and it was excellent. There is an interesting assortment of wines and liqueurs for purchase, but by the time we saw them we had completed our credit card transaction, so we'll save those for our next visit. Also good to know: unlike most places in the area, which close at 2 or 2:30, Tre Archi is open until 3. We had a nice chat with the extremely pleasant proprietor, who speaks excellent English. And we spotted the wife, who runs the kitchen, and her helper -- both looking so adorable and tidy. Highly recommended family establishment.

Elegant Atmosphere Wine Bar Light Lunch and Dinner Enoteca, Wine Shop Many wines by the glass Fresh food
Delicious wine and food. If you want information about wines of the region, then this is the right place for you. Besides the nice conversations you can taste the delicious wine form the region directly. The furniture is very nicely done and you feel at home on the sofa. We hat a nice evening and at teh end of our holiday in Tuscany we took a few bottles of wine with us, so that we could also drink a very good wine at home. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.

Was in the area, and was looking for something to share with fellow "tourists" off the beaten track, and leaning towards the more pure local environment/ savors and tastes.. and thought I would give it a try! well... arrived and it was full.. so was ready for a sorry we are full, and bye bye. instead, was invited to wait 15 minutes, which I thought well why not....After 5 mins only, we were shown to a table, and menu was given... yes it is local as basic Italian is helpful, though not necessary.. it was busy but service was efficient, and timing between dishes, put perfect for a more relaxed lunch Italian style. Pasta dishes. well no comment, an array to pick all with definite local tastes, with a no frills portion, and could not "not" finish...., and the house red wine...(I recommend) help us along. we ordered steak grilled , and I had wild boar, and a mix grill plate, and had to try them all--- boar and steak excelled! greens and accompanying dishes (not order to many!!! as you have to leave some space for desert) Desert to finish off. overall I can say top marks, yes a no frill restaurant, filled with from what I could see locals, government officials, and truck drivers, and.-... yes us in minority "tourists".. a mix that could only determine a good result, well It was in fact more than good! and the price paid I would determine it as more that balanced for what we ate and its quality and service. So do try it! but it is not the Hilton!!! so don't come if you expect to be treated as a tourist, here you are just a customer, a valued customer at that! treated as a local! and pay like a local, what else could one want! I can do without the tourist shenanigans, this restaurant in on my return to list! Local ambiance, local food, but I give it a generous 5 star. I have great difficulty is seeing how one could not be more that happy here... we were and I will return!

This great cafe is located in a quaint little village in Casole di Elsa. The pasta dishes were so good and fresh that we had lunch there twice during the week we spent in Tuscany. I had the Tagliatelle Bolognese and my husband had the ravioli. The food was delicious and service was good. Great little spot - you can sit outside and observe all the activity in the village. Highly recommend.

Whilst staying in the area we visited this place three times and we had been in previous years.Eating outside in the lovely street is a wonderful setting and typically Italian.The owner is very welcoming but it is the food which makes visitors flock here .Nothing fancy just simple honest Tuscan cuisine at its best . Try zucchini, the pasta dishes and the wild boar stew. Puddings are great too. Good local wines .A must visit if in the area but be sure to book .Canât wait to return.

You can sit outside and marvel at how the traffic, including long buses, manges the tight streets and corners. We had coffee and ice -cream - they have some interesting creations, even if a bit pricy. Toilets were very pleasant.
