Nilo's place -- with son Cristiano -- still wins accolades for great food, service, and environment. As I write in my newly published memoir The Girl from Borgo, the town would be much diminished without Nilo and his work in the F&B business in Cetona. I eat at Nilo's often, both lunch and dinner, and he and his staff still have the touch! Grazie, Nilo!!!

In addition to the friendly Cafe Sport next door (the place for coffee, gelato and small bites in Cetona) and the Pizzeria e hanburgeria di Nilo is this restaurant, Ristorante di Nilo. Nilo himself is kind of the unofficial mayor of Cetona, talking to everyone, kissing babies and generally being kind. His Ristorante di Nilo is easily one of the best in the area. Great food. Great service. Good wine selection. I recommend a reservation and to ask to be seated in the upsatirs main dining room, which seems to have a better atmosphere and is more lively - like a busy French bistro at night.

We love this place! The service and the food are always top notch. The carpaccio is a great starter and the pork entre is wonderful. Take a chance on the chef's special of the day for a treat.
Nilo is a charming gentleman.

We visited here during a short stay in Cetona.

The food was delicious, very well seasoned and looked great too!

I had the rabbit which was tender and moreish! My husband had the veal which was accompanied by mixed grilled vegetables.

Our desserts were chocolate mousse with a mango and rum jelly which was very sweet but tasted good. My husband had the fruit tiramisu which looked great and tasted even better!

Worth a visit.

umbled on by chance at a sleepy lunchtime since its old location had turned into a hamburger joint. Now known as Il Tiglio di Piazza. but still Da Nilo.
Classic Tuscan food and wine and just seriously good
