Great pasta dishes and a perfect Fiorentina Steak was our summery when eating here. The setting is lovely overlooking the valleys from the terrace and the hostess was attentive and considered. The choice of beers could do with being extended and the desserts are bought in frozen but that aside our experience was a delight and the bill reasonable.

I liked Il Piattoforte, but there were good points and bad. On the plus side the waitress was lovely, the produce was fresh, the wine was great, and the fillet steak was beautiful (very well rested, rare and full of flavour). On the down side the first time we arrived the gentleman outside told us the place was closed (not... More

I am very sorry for what happened the saturday 4th june, for you and for other many guests that were in front of the restaurant before 8:00 pm, we had the confirmation of our son Nicholas in Casole d'elsa, the program was to start celebration at 17:00 and end about 19:00..... The celebration started at 18:00 and we arrived unhappily... More

At first glance you wouldnt notice or value this little unassuming restaurant, but it has a nice open terrace out the back with views over the surrounding countryside. Has the look and feel of a local, and off the beaten track of tourists a bit. The owner however spoke excellent English and helped us with our choices. All the meals... More

Our first night in Montiguidi so myself and my girlfriend thought we would give this place a try as it is walking distance from our villa! The menu was in Italian with no english translation however the waitress spoke very good english and was more than happy to help. I ended up ordering two fillet steaks cooked to how we... More

If you look for a fancy restaurant with white, flawless tablecloth and fancy silverware, look somewhere else. But if you are in the mood for a family run restaurant with delicious food, then this is the place to be. We got to Il Piattoforte by recommendation of locals, and we were not disappointed. We got a seat on the patio,... More

We stayed for a week in Monteguidi in July 2013 and Il Piattaforte is the only restaurant in town. Good luck then that it is superb. We went several times and had a great night every time. The emphasis is on home cooking and a relaxed atmosphere; the outdoor balcony affords a breath taking view of the Tuscan countryside and... More

We chose this restaurant due to good feedbacks on the internet: authentic, nice view, etc. and were very disappointed. It is not what I'd call an authentic Italian trattoria. The place needs a good cleaning (the windows have never been washed I guess, and pleease, remove those fake plastic flowers). The wall separating the kitchen is partial, so the smell... More

Our restaurant is an authentic family business...... Me and my husband Andrea work in this restaurant with passion and love. It is really heartbreaking to know that our terrace was not for you "panoramic", from here you can see an expanse of hills of up to Radicondoli, 10 km of hills and meadows to photograph and enjoy. The "yard" that... More

We found this lovely little restaraunt that seems to be in the middle of no where after visiting the beautiful hilltop town of Casole D'Elsa. It therefore has fantastic views of the local Tuscan countryside. We sat down with our extended family of 9 and had a wonderful meal. It is very apparent that the whole experience from the chef...

We visited Il Piattoforte twice in june. We liked it because here we were in an Tuscan restaurant that doesn't do any consessions to the taste of foreigners. Eating what the Italians eat with the Italians. The female owner was very friendly, speaks English and helped us to explore the menus very well. You visit restaurant to have a good... More
