We came with our daughter and were badly disappointed by the food. The dishes were huge and not what we have ordered with a not so great pasta.

We thought this restaurant was just about pizza and pasta, but we were wrong! 12 of us, who staying next door at the Villa La Chiocciola, came over for dinner and all of us were raving about the meal the next day. We ate outside at one long table and we ranged in age from 3 to 85. Some of... More

Hidden in an area near a campground outside of Bucine is this wonderful restaurant in an 17th century building attached to a relatively modern one. We actually went there for 2 dinners and they were very good. The pizza and pasta were our favorites. The staff & owner were great & helpful. We tried speaking Italian and they helped us... More

This restaurant is located near the camping site we stayed at, so we went to it a couple of times. The restaurant is a decent Italian restaurant, with the common Italian dishes on the menu. It is a good place to go with the family. Not too expensive. We enjoyed being here.

By recommendation of the landlady of our vacation home in Tuscany we dined a couple off times in this restaurant. The restaurant is situated on a gravel road off SP540. The proximity off a large camping is normally not a very good recommendation. The big number of cars with Italian plates convinced us to go in. The atmosphere is rustic... More

We enjoyed our meals at the L'Antico Portal as the food was nicely prepared and hot. They have a wide variety of dishes available on the menu. I had the spaghetti carbonara and managed to eat it all (to the detriment of my diet). We enjoyed the food so much that we returned a second night.

This used to be one of our favourite restaurants, having eaten there for almost a decade after discovering it, but had an awful experience there this summer.
