Housed in an ancient flagstone floored building with timber roof, the restaurant has been open for a relatively short time. Parking can be tricky and sometimes it is necessary to park away from the restaurant and walk. Service was prompt, friendly and efficient. The food was very good and the ambiance very pleasant. Recommended.

A little gem in The heart of Tuscany. Great food, good local wines relaxed atmosphere, friendly owner and very reasonably priced. Just what we needed on a rainy November evening after driving from Pisa. Look forward to going back soon.

This is a comparatively newly established restaurant (in a very ancient building) in the attractive town of Panzano in Chianti. It's now very popular with locals and tourists alike. In the cooler months, they have a wood-burning stove heater which is good to sit next to, and in summer you can sit outside in the old coach yard. The food... More

We are big foodies and were so excited to visit this restaurant after reading so many amazing reviews. It does have a very beautiful courtyard setting both outdoor and indoor. We were there Sept 24th with a group of 7 and unfortunately were seated in the other indoor room which doesn't have much atmosphere. The server was very friendly and... More

I returned to Sassolini with a group again this Fall and had the same wonderful experience as last year. Giulio (owner) greeted us, showed us right to our table and brought wine and water for us immediately. I selected the menu for the group, and then the endless, delicious dishes began arriving at our table. Everything was fabulous, and it... More

We ate lunch at "Sassoolini" yesterday while in Panzano. The food was indeed very good. There is so much good food in Tuscany that it's amazing, and Sassolini is one of the best. We ate in the lovely courtyard with filtered light and a old stone well at the entrance which made it very charming. The bread and vegetable soup... More
