A home from home in a peaceful, bucolic and beautiful setting on a Tuscan hillside overlooking the Tiber valley. The road to this idyllic place is rough in places but one will forget all about that on arrival. There are three aspects to this small hotel and restaurant. First, Giuseppe, the owner, who speaks excellent English and knows London well,... More

Il Capannino is a restaurant that exudes the personality of its owner Giuseppe. By this I mean that it is based on a passion for good food in comfortable but stylish surroundings where you are made to feel at home immediately. Located a little off the beaten track, but then most things are in this part of Tuscany, the restaurant... More

Our local friends recommended that we should stop over this place while we were touring Tuscany and it was an amazing gourmet experience. Once we left the main road we found the road challenging yet once we arrived amazing views of the Tuscan landscape welcomed us. We loved the mediterranean dishes and the host's stories about the local area. This... More

My husband and I were visiting family in Pieve Santo Stefano and they were kind enough to introduce this amazing restaurant to us. Tucked away in the hills and on the way up you might think that you have taken a wrong turn but at the top of the hill is the most beautiful converted farmhouse. You walk in and... More

From the drive up to the restaurant, to the food provided and the welcome received. This place is unique. The drive up was enough to make you think you have put a hole in the bottom of your hire car, but this was made up for by the welcome received. Nothing was too much to ask for the guys who... More

Well sign posted from the main road, although you may think you are on the wrong track as you go up and up and up, just keep going - you won't be disappointed! Beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse with views to die for! Nice relaxed atmosphere and once you have visited more then twice you are treated like family. It is... More

You are guaranteed a warm welcome here. Local food but with a slightly more cosmopolitan twist to most other local places. Lots of great dishes and a few extra morsels are provided and not added to the bill. Great for lunch - even it it does extend into the early evening! The track up to the restaurant is a little...

We have been 3 times and each time the food has been outstanding. Chef sources local produce and majors on Tuscan cooking with Spanish and International influence. There are some very good restaurants in the area but La Capannina has set a higher bar. Regular menu changes also keep you coming back. Don't miss the cheicken livers to start or... More

Top class restaurant, I would highly recommend this place for vegetarians. Set in a beautiful part of Tuscany with very friendly and accommodating hosts who can't do enough to please.
