We so enjoyed our outdoor dining with Osteria Al Braciere. The food was excellent and it was so relaxing to enjoy the long dinners with our extended family.

The setting is beautiful and we ate outdoors on a terrace under an arch of vines with views down to the sea. The menu is a set full menu- €30 all inclusive and varies each night. Food was beautiful and included bean... More

Tucked away in the trees just outside of San Vicenzo is this little delight. It's not posh, and the food isn't exotic, but it's about good home-made food and hospitality. When we were there the menu was a set 4 course dinner with dessert, coffee and wine for 30euros! Great value. The food was good and more than we could... More

My wife and I are just back from a week in San Vincenzo, Tuscany, on the Etruscan Coast; a destination not common for Americans we were told several times. Why this hidden gem has not made it "on the map" of clever USA travellers is beyond us. Easy going, no challenge, seaside town, with several resorts just a few moments... More

We couldn't get through on the phone so took a chance and drove there. It was superb! They have a fixed menu and everything was perfect! Antipasto of meats and cheeses, soup, salad, primi, secundi and dessert. Their house red was a great accompaniment. Indoor and outdoor seating.

As we were guests in the agriturismo on the same property, this osteria was very convenient. After giving it a try the first night, we kept coming back daily. They serve very honest local food, very tasteful and plenty. Alessio serves with joy, happily to explain the dishes, and to suggest alternatives if there is something you like less in... More

The osteria has both indoor and outdoor sitting, and we recommend taking a table in the garden with the view of the sea. The panorama is fantastic and the smell of flowers contribute well to it. The food is very tasty with some decent wines to compliment, also liked the tiramisu. Overall very pleased!!

Excellent local cooking and wonderfully convenient if you're staying at Costa Etrusca. Interesting choice of dishes, a few splendid pasta dishes, good wine list. Precise cooking. By local standards not cheap, but well worth a visit. Charming and helpful staff. Very easy with kids as there is a play area (discreetly far away) and extensive gardens. Recommended.

Osteria Al Braciere is located onthe property of Costa Etrusca Farm House. In the summer its tables are located outside, in one of the most panoramic gardens of Costa Etrusca, with a gorgeous view of San Vincenzo and the nearby islands.

Each particular aspect of this restaurant makes it a unique place: its handmade tables, the aromatic plants that surround them, the rose bushes, the olive trees, and the country scent that mixeswith the salty air coming from the sea. So this makes it not only a good country restaurant but also a spot that fascinates and cheers you up, that finds a little place in your heart.

Our trip in Tuscan tastes starts with hors d'oeuvreswith salted meats, cheese and toastedbread with savories and continues with homemade fresh pasta and soups, and gets to its end with the home specialty, the several kinds of meat, grilled in the big barbecue (braciere) placed close to the tables. Nonetheless, we also have some fish courses and several vegetarian courses, like our tasty Tuscan soups, several kinds of pasta, vegetable flans, cheese, etc.

Moreover, if you inform us ahead of time, our restaurant will be pleased to respond to the needs of particular diets, like the vegan, vegetarian and celiacones.

Our wine list offers very good Tuscan reds, with particular attention toward the local Val di Cornia and Bolgheri D.O.C.

When the weather does not allow us to serve meals in the garden, they are served in the restaurant's country style dining room, which has a big fireplace, and a cozy atmosphere.

Our restaurant offers "a la carte" service, Half Board service and Full Board service. We also prepare take-away lunches for the beach of for day-trips.
