Omg Omg omg I wanted to lick my plate that's how good it was !!!!!
The setting is gorgeous, under a tent with lights and the Tuscany view.
I think it's in the owners house so You really feel like you're eating in the "mama's place".
The service was just perfect.
And now the food.. because it's the most important :) salmon tartare with fennel and a tartare of shrimp as a starter: fresh and delicious
My main dish was pasta with a variety of sea food ( lobster / shrimp ) ... the sauce was to die for !!!!!
We also had pasta with lobster and truffle - AMAZING !!!
I enjoyed my meal like never before. Italian cuisine is simple and full of flavours and this restaurant is italian's finest.
It's lost in the middle of nowhere which makes it even more special. I highly recommend this restaurant if you ever are in the neighbourhood of Ceruto Giudi.

the setting looks ok with a pool and such.however the food is below average and quite expensive.worse even they tried to charge us more money than the menu allowed.we had some stupid explanations for that as if the english menu was not the binding one.they even changed the prices by hand when we complained.very sad!

Buongiorno,sono Teresa chef/proprietaria del risr.LE GROTTE D'ARNO.Questi Signori sono venuti a cena da noi un mercoledi e appena arrivati si sono rivelati subito un po' scostanti.Abbiamo dato loro dia i menu' in inglese che in italiano i quali avevano dei prezzi aggiornati a penna in quanto proprio quel giorno il tecnico aveva installato il registratore di cassa con i prezzi aggiornati,non hanno voluto sapere spiegazioni ma mi hanno scaraventato via dalla mano il menu'.Pensavano che volessimo truffarli sul prezzo ma se cosi' fosse stato non avremmo certo offerto loro sia un antipastino che dei dolcetti a fine pasto.Traete voi le conclusioni.

We had a great dinner at Le grotte. The food was very nice and the service friendly. Although we arrived early, food and drinks were serviced quickly

Truly fantastic food and very friendly service with an English speaking waiter. The food was all freshly prepared to order and therefore unfortunately was a bit slow to come, hence not 5 stars. We probably wouldn't have minded but we had a toddler with us so was a bit of an issue. However they apologised and gave us some money off

Overall though really recommended

We had a wonderful night at this restaurant. The setting is beautiful and Giacamo and his family were cheerful and welcoming hosts. We went for mostly fish (I had Sea Bass) as we had heard that this was the best fish restaurant on the area, and we were not disappointed. My wife could speak some Italian so we had so problems there. The Daughter who was one of the chefs also had good English. All in all we had a great night with excellent food, good house wine and a beautiful location. I would recommend this as the best restaurant we visited during out two week stay in Tuscany.
