A traditional Tuscan restaurant that specializes in grilled meats. Try their fiorentina steak. Also worthy of appreciation is the stuffed hen neck served with chives and omelette. Decent wine list. Good home made desserts

We absolutely loved our dinner here. Our BnB recommended it. About a 20 min drive from Siena. The food was excellent and great variety. It really helped make our Tuscany trip great. We went to Capri after and still think the Octopus we had here was the best we have ever had.

Ate there two times during our stay at a villa nearby, both times the owner of the villa made reservations for us ( party of 12 both times) and They really treated as locals.

Food and service was a disappointment. The meat I ordered (cinta - or local pig) that was clearly unfrozen with a blood watery liquid on the plate. My wife's chicken was tasteless and the vegetables soggy. Mystified by the other positive comments for the place.

Wonderful and welcoming. The food is excellent and Andrea is a wonderful chef. The fillet of beef is to die for! We had a fabulous evening.

The trip advosor review is stellar, the food is stellar, delicious expertly prepared! Important to make a reservation because this place is packed with locals and word of mouth. We were treated like forgeigners, slow service and they made us wait, but it was all really excellent and so we forgave... Can't go wrong, just wait your turn...

I had dinner here, by myself. Vagliagli is a small town, among vineyards and olive groves and the restaurant is really characteristic. Staff is polite and nice. I would suggest beef tartare with artichokes salad and the typical Tuscan soup, the "Ribollita".

We were there for a dinner with the clear scope to try "la fiorentina". We ate starters (I strongly suggest just to try it because of "la fiorentina" is an important course) and dessert. "la fiorentina" is 5 start, well cooked and presented. Wine list is very good (it cannot be different in this place).
