We were so happy to visit this bistecca paradise last night with my family and friends. We had a 1,8 kg steak with just rosemary and salt, a few contorni, and a bottle of brunello. If you are traveling in this area this is a must! Easy stop from highway makes it convenient for travelers with a car. There is no way to describe the taste of a grand chianina steak so get a table and go for it!

What a find, this fantastic local restaurant served some of the best local food I ate whilst in Tuscany, don’t be put off by all the truck in the car park, this place obviously has a great reputation.
The reception from the owner (Marina) and her staff was friendly and welcoming, and they could not do enough to please you.
There is a large varied menu that caters for all tastes, and serves homemade pasta and sauces, wood fired Pizza and some the best local meats you could ever wish to eat.
The prices were very reasonable and the portions were not small, but make sure you leave enough room for desert they are all homemade and definitely do not disappoint.

I love the Podere Le Caselle! When traveling to Florence, it is well worth your while to get off the highway and stop at this wonderful family - owned restaurant. When you're a guest here, you are treated as one of the family. It's a lovely setting, calm and relaxing, and the food just can't be beat. I've been here twice, and can't wait to come back.

Go hungry, go often and try everything. We had pasta with boar sauce. The steaks look fantastic too and "grandmother's" desserts are superb!

tentativo avvilente da parte della struttura di fronte alla nostra di screditare un locale che ha 50 anni di onorato lavoro e una famiglia che pensa al lavoro e ai propri clienti...invito tutti a visionare le uniche due recensioni fatte dalla signora sottolineando che i ristoranti sono a 20 mt l uno dall altro...la miglior pubblicita di questo anno e stata la vostra recensione grazie.

This place was recommended by a friend living nearby and we stopped for lunch on the way to Rome. A tad difficult to find once left the motorway, a great indicator of the quality of food (and price) as the number of trucks parked outside (they go up and down the country and know their stuff in terms of food). We went straight for the Chianina (the type of cows locally farmed which offer the best steaks) and salad. It must be eaten raw/medium cooked and the increadibly tender meat just melts in your mouth. It was properly cooked and rested for few minutes before serving so that the meat retained all its flavour. Price was reasonable (tempted to say it was cheap) and definitely worth the meal we had. Must try.
