Rustic elegant derived from the old mill of the farm Rignana, which was the home of Bishop Scipio Ricci Outside Of the large Terrace that overlooks one of the most beautiful Chianti The wine cellar is managed by the family of Rignana Abbarchini since 1983 and today, as then the dishes are made with fresh seasonal ingredients according to the ancient culinary traditions of Chianti and Tuscany
Do yourself one favour and GO for dinner here. The BEST dining experience we have had our entire Italian trip. The property/patio is breathtaking.
We didn't even need to read the menu as Fabritzio was so attentive and recommended the best items including a delicious wine made from the vines on the property!
This guy is any restauranteur's dream as he knows how to make your evening memorable and isn't trying to upsell you...
Make sure to have the Prussian steak- it was to DIE for!
Thanks for the dance Fabritzio We will be back!

We were a party of 20 and enjoyed a wonderful lunch at this lovely restaurant. The staff seemed to juggle large parties and small, intimate groups easily, moving smoothly like a well-oiled machine.
We started with an Olive Oil tasting which seriously corrected our thinking on Olive Oils! My my you've created a monster now!
The meal was tasty and creative:
Wild herb flan with crispy egg and Parmesan cheese fondue
Lamb loin with cream of zucchini, bell-pepper with wild fennel and potato cubes
Finished off with a cheese selection, pear filled pastry and honey drizzle
Particularly interesting (and I'll be trying to copy this for a year) is the crispy egg! It's a soft boiled egg, coated with Parmesan and deep-fried. The outside is crispy and golden while the inside is still runny and gooey to soak up the herb flan.
Great job for both our larger group and the numerous small groups you balanced too.

"Wen in Rome", well actually in the Chianti region, you need to experience this authentic Tuscan restuarant. Be warned that this is not a roadside establishment, which just adds to the fun. Restaurant was filled with locals which is exactly waht we wanted to experience.

Go here. It's a no-brainer.
Food - delicious. The diavola pizza was incredible, and although not typical of this part of Italy, it was amazing. Steak was also great - would recommend just salt & pepper rather than truffle etc.
Service - helpful & attentive
Wine - extensive list and a great recommendation from the sommelier.
Decor - romantic but also suitable for a group of friends/family

A hilltop village a small restaurant, lots of conversation, wine and fine food. life doesnt get much better than that. but rarely do you find a restaurant that delivers on exactly those promises - this one does. welcomed warmly, wine on the table, extensive and excellent local selection of food - it was all perfect down to the vin santo and cantuccini. when can i come back?

This was the nearest restaurant to the villa we stayed in 'Borgo Petrognano' just a 5 minute walk away, the owners and staff are very friendly and the food superb, we visited three times during our stay, the place is large, it has beautiful Gardens and a kids area, well worth a visit.

Bearing in mind the restaurant is in the country, we were amazed how busy it was for a Tuesday evening ... Heaving in fact !! We were recommended to come here and were not disappointed; great food, great wine list, service was good, albeit the staff were rushed off their feet and I was almost exhausted just watching them literally running around !
I told my wife we didn't need to book; good job she ignored me ! If you decide to come here I would recommend booking online or calling ahead.
They don't do a children's menu, but can do smaller portions.
We we definitely coming back before returning home !

This is one of the great local finds. Katia and her staff are great, very friendly and helpful. Everyone is so nice here you really feel welcome, eating outside in summer is very nice. This place is always busy, so best to book. Menu is simple plenty of options, pastas are so well prepared. Lovely meat dishes. We have been coming here for years.

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of a local vineyard. We stayed in the former owners’ villa.
The food is cooked perfectly. The service is impeccable. The servers were knowledgable and passionate.
The food was a culinary celebration, and the meal itself was an experience.
The variety of bread, olive oils, and balsamic vinegar alone was fantastic!

We stayed in a villa very close to St Appiano and walked to this place and booked a meal. I would say that I have never had a more enjoyable evening in a restaurant - seriously.
The food was perfect and thoroughly Tuscan. I had ox tail which was perfectly cooked and presented. The staff were excellent and managed the full restaurant easily, the Terrace was cool and the ambiance was all you could ask for in a Tuscan country restaurant.
We were the only non-Italians in the place so that must say a lot. We will be gojng back there before we leave and this is now definitely on my "to do" list for our next trip here.
If you want to eat like Tuscans do, make the trip to this place. (but book ahead)
