We were booked for this cooking class through Mario Fortini of Bellarome Travel Agency so we had no idea what to expect. Mario did a great job because this was awesome! We had a very nice ride through Tuscany to get here. The staff was fun and friendly. We made home made fettuccini, Bolognese sauce, rosemary pork loin and Tiramisu for dessert. Everything was wonderful, some of the very best food I had in Italy. All the time we were cooking, we sampled wine (may be why the food tasted so good!) We had an excellent wine tasting that was informative and included some very good wine. Overall, this was a great day, I'll definitely make the recipes we prepared here because they were so simple and I look forward to enjoying the wine we ordered from them.Dear Becky, we thank you so much for your kind words. We are so happy you enjoyed our cooking class, lovely welcome of Bottega TorcianoFamily. We are thrilled you had a great time by us! You really understand our spirit and passion for wine! Thank you and we hope to see you again! You are always welcomedHave a nice day

We returned here for dinner after several years of dining here with family, and we loved it. Absolutely such a delight and experience, we watched the sunset as we dined around 7:30pm, along the Tuscan countryside, the view was beautiful, and they even had Andrea Bocelli playing in the background. Truly a scene out of a movie.The prices are a bit expensive, but the experience is truly excellent, the service is phenomenal. They were extremely attentive and polite. The food was wonderful, the Tuscan specialty appetizer was great. The risotto with saffron was a bit salty, but still tasty. The tagliatelle with truffle was divine, and the bistecca fiorentina was great! great to share between 2 people. The dessert was also delicious, and they gave us a gift of bottle of wine which was so nice. We love this restaurant and can't wait to return. Thank you for an incredible 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!
