Casa Masi

Reviewed By 571jaym

Our concierge recommended Casa Masi for a casual lunch during a recent vacation to Tuscany, and we had a terrific meal. The atmosphere is country Tuscany style with a friendly and comfortable ambiance. Our service was exceptional, prompt but relaxed and very helpful. We loved the wine list and sampled a couple of local bottles with an incredibly tasty meal. The Rabbit with Asparagus and Gramigna (pasta) with Pecorino Cheese were both incredible. (I loved the cheese rind bowl!) In fact we enjoyed it so much that we tried to get in for dinner that Friday night, without any luck. I'm sure we will go back the next time we visit Tuscany!!

It looks rather like a wedding only venue, but is a fully functioning restaurant. the waiting staff were attentive and helpful, even bringing us dishes to try that they thought we might like. Tip - the fish menu is amazing! Everything was good and made the walk there and back well worth it!

La Taverna dell'Ozio

Reviewed By mc240

You need to book the table in advance because this is a tiny restaurant. The food and the service are just amazing. The portions are very generous and without a doubt value for money. The antipasti della casa with all the different sauces are great. Crespelle cheese and truffles are a delicacy. Tagliata di maiale with truffles incredibly tasty. We could not order dessert because after ordering antipasti, primi e secondi we could not eat anything else. Impeccable service, really attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant.

The Restaurant is situated in an old farm. You eat in the ex wine cellar. The decoration is quite kitch. The food is excellent. A bit nouvelle cuisine but sufficient in the helpings. In summer the view into the valley is stunning. Friendly service

L'Eremita

Open for Lunch and Dinner everyday. closed Wednesday

Reviewed By Jacek M

Some of the places just have it and that is the case with L'Eremita. Restaurant is super cosy in the old basement structure of the Montopoli. You can find parking about 50 meters down from restaurant. Interior was super well decorated. Staff super friendly and accomodating to different requests for changes in dishes offered without a blink. Antipasti were super nice (and super big) - we recommend to size your appetite as it will be hard to accomodate everything. Main courses delicious. We had also seen some super looking Dolci but we misjudged sizes of our stomachs - so we all regretfully declined it :) which I am still sorry for. Anyway big recommendation - you will not regret it- everything was just top notch. Of course please make reservation - you can do it online on tripadvisor.

Il Pettirosso

Reviewed By denisep945

This is truly one of the best restaurants in Palaia, Tuscany. The food is simply the best. Service exceptional. The restaurant has been around since 1961 and still run by the same family. Three generations creating the best wood fired pizza in Tuscany. I always get the sage and butter ravioli and it is a must we visit every time we are in the area. Sit under the beautiful tree that was just a sapling in 1961. Stunning views to enjoy at dusk. Very reasonable as well.

Al Pachino

Reviewed By GuyB698

As you'll see from the pictures, the decor here defies imagination. But irrespective of your taste in furnishings, you should try this place for every other reason. The people are friendly and the food is magnificent. My wife and I shared a plate of Tuscan meats and cheese, and then a lovely pasta dish - which was small enough to allow us to enjoy the piece de resistance - vacuum-cooked pig (basically a mini roast pork with crackling). Fabulous.

Wow..we found a gemma tonight for dinner! We are staying in area of T Tigli restaurant in the Palai area. We felt so welcomed by Elena. She was busy but took time with every individual table. We each ordered a first course of pasta followed by individual pizzas. The pasta servings were huge! Excellent presentation,taste,and so well cooked by Nonna ...we met her before leaving. We each also ordered pizza .....amazing taste but we were so full from first course we boxed a lot of the pizza for tomorrow.The whole experience was amazing. The restaurant is spotless,space and yet private. The house wine was excellent. Very reasonable prices and wonderful friendly family as evidenced by attached photo of 3 generations! We have already booked to return two nights of our remaining three nights. Excellente all around!

This hidden gem in Palaia is worth seeking out - and you must try the beef stew with peppercorns, fusilli with pork and fennel. The dessert of orange cake cannot be missed. And the salted chocolate surprise is to die for.
