We had eaten here a few times. After the first visit, we decided it was not worth our time. Then after many months, we gave it another chance, and this time the cuisine and presentation was very good. But today, our experience was most disappointing! My husband took the meat menu whilst I preferred the seafood one. The Cod fish... More

What a great restaurant. Only 6 tables, perfect service. We had the traditional (meat) tasting menu. Everything was delicious but what was even more exceptional was the wine list. As expected great selection of Tuscan wines including older vintages, but also great burgundies. The wine prices were in many cases below retail. Despite the small staff, service was impeccable.

I'll keep this very short...Arnolfo fully deserves its 2 Michelin stars. Our meal for a party of four was a tour de force of flavour, texture and creativity. The service was absolutely impeccable, verging on choreography. The wine list is extensive and fairly priced. It was easily the best meal we had in a three week European trip, which included...

This restaurant has retained its 2 Michelin stars for quite a while - a sign that it is something really special. Run by the 2 genius brothers - Gaetano (Chef extraordinaire) and Giovanni (Maitre d' and perfectionist manager of the restaurant and the 3 camere that are also available). Nothing is overlooked. The table settings (Baccarat is the house favourite)... More

We had a magnificent meal at Arnolfo in 2012, our first time to Arnolfo's. Came back because of that experience and were disappointed. Some of the dishes were great and some were mediocre. We will not be going back as it MUST be magnificent every single time to command the prices charged.

Long list of reasons why Arnolfo gets top ratings and reviews. Creative, delicious, visually beautiful cuisine. Every course was a "wow." Loved staying overnight in the rooms upstairs. Thank you Gaetano and Giovanni for an unforgettable experience.

Arnolfo is generally regarded as one of the if not THE best restaurants in Tuscany, and our dinner experience there confirms this rating. We were seated on the lovely terrace with a beautiful view over the valley and had a lovely sauvignon blanc as an aperitif. My wife took the meat-oriented menu (Evolution of the territory), I took the seafood... More

We had enjoyed lunch at Arnolfo several years ago and were anxious to return for dinner. This time we booked a room (gorgeous view and lovely decor) in order to fully experience the food and wine. Artistry is how I would describe the food presentation and each course was more beautiful that the previous. A lovely Tuscany night complete with... More

We went to Arnolfo as a family party of 14 to celebrate my father-in-law's 70th birthday. We had 2 adult tables of 4 and a table of 6 for the kids. What a fantastic welcome we had from the exceptional staff. They were especially kind to the children who were well looked after. The variety of amuse-bouche was generous and... More

My family debated whether it would be worth visiting a 2 Michelin starred restaurant in Italy when even local restaurants service fabulous food. However I wanted to experience a 2 star restaurant and see how it compared. There are a number of tasting menus but we didn't want a huge meal so just wanted a main course and pudding. I... More
