This restaurant moved its location from downtown San Giovanni Valdarno to an agriturismo off the Setteponti road between Castelfranco del Sopra and Pian di Sco'. While the location may not be as convenient, it is worth the journey!

Here you will find delicious, Tuscan comfort food, a warm welcome and excellent service. With a new outdoor grill and a wood-fired pizza oven, the flavors of the grilled meats, including the famous Tuscan steak, and the pizzas are mouth-watering, simple and good-tasting.

In summers it is refreshing to sit outside under the stars. In the cooler months there are cozy dining areas with rustic decor and a fireplace.

This is our favorite place and we go there often. We are never disappointed and hope you will enjoy it, too!

We have been visiting this restaurant 2 times during our last summer holliday in Toscane. It's located between Castelfranco and Pian di sco.
Very good service and delicious food. The pizza's, made by chef Gianni, are the best pizza's I have seen in a very long time.

And Gianni is not only a super chef, he is a good entertainer as well. Our second visit was on a friday night. After his cooking work was done he started to make some music with a few regular customers. We had a magical evening at this restaurant.

This restaurant signed as Da Battista at the roadside is tucked away down a gravel track but is worth finding.

Unpretentious but friendly service of great local cooking.

We had the caprese salad, mixed starters and salmon pasta.

All had very good flavour and the setting on the terrace looking out on unspoiled countryside is wonderful.

Traveling with 12 people can be difficult and sometimes not easy to accomodate at a restaurant.
We had been sightseeing in Florence all day and arrived back to the town of Pian di Sco where our villa was situated. It was around 9:45 pm and everything was closed. We never got to eat dinner and all of us were very hungry. After traveling about 15 minutes we found Ristorante Pizzeria Gravanella on top of the mountain. There were a few people in the restaurant.
The chef was very accomodating. He immediately put some logs in the wood burning pizza oven.
In about 20 minutes we had 12 delicious pizzas and wine sitting in front of us served by our excellent waiter Fabio. What a way to spend a late night in the hills of Tuscany!

We were a large group (15) and the service was as fantastic as the food. Our vegetarians were also delighted. After two less than impressive dinners in Bologna the previous two evenings this was an absolute pleasure. I cannot praise it too highly – dinner and as much wine as we could drink for €25 – incredible value - we will be back!
