Wish to enjoy an amazing Tuscan meal in the surroundings?
Here are a few of our favourite spots for dining around here:
The most famous is probably Dario Cecchini, our world-famous poet/butcher who sings Dante while cutting the most delicious Fiorentina Steak in front of you!
You can have different tastings of excellent meat here…just choose amongst Dario DOC, Officina della Bistecca, Solociccia and so on!
In Panzano in Chianti (20 km from us)
on the way to Panzano you will find a road sign to Valigondoli, a tiny little village with 12 houses, one of which hosts another one of our favourite Restaurants, DA PORDO!
This is a cosy and traditional family run trattoria where you can taste some of the most typical dishes of the area such as Wind boar sauce tagliatelle or fried Chicken and /or Hare with fried vegetables…mouthwatering!
You can sit either in the stone little halls or in the fresch veranda overlooking the stunning landscape.
Valigondoli (10 km from us)
If you want to stick to the San Casciano area you would still be spoilt for choice!
In the central Via IV Novembre you find a mouthwatering Pizza at la Carbonaia, with a very cosy location and friendly staff,
Then you’ll come across the good old Nello with its traditional yet a little more refined menù than a regular Trattoria, in a cosy and homey location…amazing Fiorentina Steak!
If you keep on walking you would find the Antica Fiaschetteria del Chianti a lovely and traditional wine-bar on a corner, with tables outside, where you can try local wines, cured meat and traditional dishes…
After that the road opens up onto Via Macchiavelli, where you find the ancient Osteria Caffè del Popolano, about 100 years old restaurant!
With a slightly longer walk (totally worthy) you would reach the Viale San Francesco, in front of the Church, here you will find the excellent Cinquedivino restaurant, with a breathtaking Fiorentina steak, a lovely “dehors” and sueperkind hosts…
If you want to stick even closer to Acquapietra, you should try The Gallo Giallo trattoria, in an old farm house, just 3 km away from us on the way to Mercatale and Greve. It is a family run restaurant with a strong tradition and passio for the typical Tuscan cuisine.
The closest place for a lovely meal is the Osteria Le Corti , inside Villa Le Corti, the stunning white castle you see while reaching Acquapietra, where the Prince Corsini and his family live.
The Corsini Family, that owns the land where Acquapietra is located, produces amazing wine in their organic vienyards, and invites guests to visit their winery and cellars, and to taste their wines and specialties in a stunning location: a cross-vaulted cellar where you can dine suspended on hundreds of ancient barrels where they store their wine.
Did you decide where to start from?
And if you don’t want to move around after a sightseeing day, you can still cook your own delicious pasta in Acquapietra Kitchen and enjoy it in the intimacy on our terrace, enjoying the unique light and landscape!
