Vico Furbo is a very nice and reasonably prices place, with typical tuscan food. Great to have a table in front of the restaurant, sitting virtually on the street of the city. Vico Furbo is always an item on our agenda when visiting Tuscany.....

This is a good solid choice and a great example of a Tuscan country-side restaurant: located in an interesting little square, in a small hilltop town (parking around), with great interior décor, with nice friendly service. The much mentioned buffet for Antipasti is a great opportunity to try many different antipasti (and a quick way to feed hungry stomachs -... More

First of all... this restaurant is actually in Vico d'Elsa. It's about 6 km SW of Barberino so be warned. We arrived around 19:40 and the place was empty. We were taken to a table in the back and I asked if we could have another table. The hostess said that all the tables were reserved (Funny that people reserve... More

Vico Furbo boast three advantages...one is that it sits slightly off the beaten tourist track in a little town called Vico d'Elsa, just a few kilometers from crowded San Gimignano. They have easy and free parking and both the restaurant and the food are super. Try the antipasti buffet, fresh and delicious!

We stumbled upon this restaurant while trying to find another restaurant that had been recommended. It was an incredible find! The antipasto buffet was amazing - it was all so delicious! And the pizzas were divine! We tried to go back a few nights later, but they were closed for some reason (I couldn't translate the sign on the door).... More

We had a great dinner at Vico Furbo with a rich buffet and after that for me a perfect pizza and for my girlfriend a delicious pasta (that actually wasn't on the menu). The lady of the house was very friendly, and we had a great time! Seemed to me that there were some locals as well.

We came across Vico Furbo by chance, when staying nearby at Il Coltro and searching trip advisor for local restaurants. What a gem of a restaurant! We were made to feel extremely welcome by Stefania and the team. Even though we caught them on their first day open after their summer holiday, the food was probably the best we had... More

Lovely restaurant in a quiet square. Excellent service. Delicious food. Good wine list. Relaxing and atmospheric. Perfect! Try the flatbreads as a starter.

We also attended a pre wedding dinner here, followed by the wedding meal the next day. My friends (the bride and groom) visit this place every year and we finally got to experience first hand, exactly what they have been raving about all these years! Firstly, the friendliness and hospitatility of the owners is second to none. But the food............ More

Went to a fabulous wedding here recently. We had a pre-wedding dinner in the restaurant the evening before that was fabulous. Very relaxed atmosphere, staff cannot do enough for you and the food is to die for! Antipasta presents its own challenge as you have to sample the delights whilst leaving room for main course too. After the pre- wedding... More
