If I could give Osteria di Rendola a 6 out of 5, I would. Superbly comfortable, friendly service, and impeccable Tuscan food. Dining here was more than a meal, it was a sublime Tuscan experience. We (some of us anyway) had waited all week for a beautiful Chianina steak, and by the recommendation of our villa's director, we went to... More

Some years ago we attended cooking-workshops at Osteria di Rendola. We shall never forget it. Chef Allessandro Bettini was our teacher. We never learned to cook this excellent food before.In may 2016 we plan to visit Rendola to have dinner there. A real reaunion.

I've been visiting Montevarchi for many years but had never been here. It is under new ownership and I was taken here for a meal. There was no menu, but the staff explained what food had been freshly prepared that day. They cook using fresh, seasonal ingredients and their recommendations were first class! I ate well over several courses -... More

We came across this restaurant just by passing by on the road from Bucine to Montegonzi. (on the right hand side) The meal was typically Tuscan, and lots of different tastes to try. If anything the portions were too generous and we felt bad not being able to finish each course, but......if you are a big eater.........

I was taken here by friends wanting to give us a treat in May 2012. We soon realised there was a big set meal going on at the end of the room. The waiter pushed one antipasto and when the mega-party started getting served, we saw why. It was the one on their set menu! The food was.average and those... More

We ate here in a group of 7 after reading the best reviews here. The view really is beautiful and the building itself is also very attractive and welcoming. Not having reserved we got a table right at the back in a corner, right under a loudspeaker which was blaring out an awful radio station with the usual adverts shouting... More

All the food was fried. Very strange if you are familiar with the Italian (Tuscan) kitchen. In the room, bed was very hard, toilet was broken and shower not working anymore. Our stay doesn't give us a holiday feeling. We were alone in the building. This creates a spooky atmosphere.

The restaurant could be one of the best place for quality of food and wine but the price is way too much compare with the location.You can't have a Tuscan steak with a bottle of regular wine,an espresso shot and limoncello for 65 euro.There are so many excellent places in the area with the same quality with better price.The atmosphere...

To echo what many have already said, the setting is absolutely beautiful, up in the hills. A bit of a windy drive to get to but well worth it. I think it only took 10-15 minutes from Montevarchi. We arrived early with no reservation on a Friday evening and they were able to seat us, but the restaurant quickly filled... More
