dined there about 5 years ago - it was truly amazing - venison, truffles and great wine. Still think about it. Well worth the 2 km gravel road drive- stay in the Fattoria di Rignana down the road- also great!

The first time i dined there was almost 7 years ago on a family trip. We were staying at a villa across the street from the restaurant.. Tired and starving from the long drive to the villa and without any prior dinner plans this place was our only option for the night. It ended up being my most memorable dining... More

If I know that I have one day to live my last lunch will be in this restaurant. Isolated in the forest the place is out of this world. Experienced service with great wine list and very tasty food is the package. Unique view, fresh truffles, big wines, friendly people what else can you ask in Chianti.

Autumn in Tuscany comes with a variety of weathers. When we decided to visit Cantinetta di Rignana we came across strong winds, thunder and lots of rain. Challenging on most Italian roads but especially on the dirtroad leading to Rignana. But what was it worth battling the storm. The mezzelune with truffle was one of the best dishes we've tasted...

This place is such a lovely place to have lunch, dinner was good as well. But the lunch times seem to be more attractive because of the views and the goings on at this time of year. The staff are lovely, Silvia and Fabrizio are very helpful and kind to both Tony and I, and they have always gone above... More

One of my favourite meals ever! Quite tricky to find & definitely recommend satnav but so worth the trip. The road is a rocky track in parts but keep going! Get a terrace table with beautiful views over the Tuscan hillside and nearby vineyards. Chef Massimo cooks a mean Bistecca allo Fiorentina - local speciality. It was great but we... More

Great views, we went at night so we only were able to enjoy for a few minutes before it got too dark. Food was excellent, I highly recommend their appetizer plate for two or more. Great wine and great service. Do not miss this place if you are a food and wine enthusiast.

The restaurant is in old farm buildings overlooking a beautiful valley. Simplicity is the key but the food is very tasty. Seasonal dishes as tasty as you could hope for in the Tuscan countryside. Our Beef was not perfect but otherwise we enjoyed every mouthful and also their own Chianti. Well worth the expedition over narrow country roads to reach... More
