We ended up eating at Artevino twice during our one week stay in Tuscany. This very small and quiet restaurant offers a varied menu and decent wine list, featuring many of the local wines. This is where you go for a long and leisurely dining experience as there seemed only to be one server but she was attentive and friendly. Each dish served was beautifully plated which made this a feast for the eyes. Definitely a delicious treat!

This is truly an exceptional find in a small Italian village. The atmosphere is a combination of fine dining and the feeling that you are with family. The hostess/server was wonderful. I knew just enough Italian and she knew just enough English that we were able to order. Chef Maria also visited with us to explain several dishes and to offer alternatives if we did not wish certain ingredients.The experience started when we were seated in the lovely dining room and served a cocktail and a bread soup - yes, it was a soup that tasted like fresh bread with olive oil and herbs. After this, we received our menus and sorted through many options from tasting menus to a la carte items. We chose the tasting menu of local Toscana dishes. One of the courses had liver, of which the hostess was sure to make us aware. She offered to substitute a lovely porcini mushroom salad - it was truly delicious. There were many courses, my favorite was the rabbit. We also had the wine parings. Each wine was from Tuscany and went very well with each dish. The dessert course was very surprising - a gorgonzola gelato with wafers. I enjoyed the salty/sweet/cheesy taste while my husband opted for the peach gelato version. The meal was about 125 Euros per person with the wine pairings and well worth it. This experience is for those willing to spend time over a meal - at least two hours or more - and those willing to try something different. Remember that these are local specialties, not something we are used to getting in the States. Overall this was a wonderful surprise and excellent representation of the area cuisine.

We visited this restaurant for lunch on our last day in Castelfiorentino. The chef explained the menu in detail and upon seeing that we wanted to have fish and seafood, he offered to put together antipasti and primi, some of which were not even on the menu. The food was excellent and the portions were ample. There were 3 types of dessert on the menu and we ordered the pannacotta and chocolate millefoglie to share between the four of us, having previously gone through three courses. We were wowed as the chef served the chocolate fondante soon after, despite us not having ordered it. This was simply divine and what's more, it was not added to the bill!Definitely one of the best meals we had whilst on holiday in Tuscany.

Restaurant with excellent food and in beautiful settings, which can fully be enjoyed from our panorama terrace overlooking the charming Chianti-hills! Our menu offer a wide selection of tasty appetizers, pasta and main courses following carefully the Tusc
We visited this beautiful restaurant this week during our stay and had the best food of our whole trip in Italy. We both opted for the steak with green peppercorn sauce and after the first mouthful we were in heaven! It was beautiful. We had a great table in the outdoor seating area, which has spectacular views over the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. The service we received was impeccable ... extremely friendly and welcoming. Next time we're in Tuscany, this place will definitely be on the agenda. Well done to everyone at Il Gusto & Il Tatto. Thank-you for the wonderful experience. I love it when restaurants get in right in every way.
