We have been to Greve many, many times but for some reason not to the lovely little medieval hilltop town of Montefioralle, above Greve, before...thank goodness we went! What an absolutely charming place. Time for lunch! We entered the family owned Taverna del Guerrino through a little doorway and immediately went down old stone stairs to the covered patio. And right before our eyes a spectacular view of Chianti! The menu includes traditional Tuscan food coming from a kitchen that has It's original wood-burning oven! All the grilled items are cooked over this fire which adds a special dimension to the simple cooking techniques. We enjoyed a shared grilled veal chop, first course of Tuscan bean salad and to finish a pear with Pecornio, honey and walnuts. We also had a jug of house wine. Our server, the owner, was extremely friendly, outgoing, was quick dealing with requests and moved things along but we did not feel we were being rushed. What a totally pleasurable experience...we could have stayed all afternoon soaking up the atmosphere! One thing...it's probably best to bring cash as it appears that the credit card machine has not worked for some time. Make sure you allow yourself time to wander around this "little treasure" of a town!

From the Hilltop town of Montefioralle just outside of Greve in Chianti, you will find this place which seats about 40 outside on a beautiful terrace overlooking the countryside and 40 inside. Everything here has a rustic type charm about it, the staff is friendly and earnest in assisting the customer and the food is fresh and ample satisfying your appetite, at a decent price. You will have to park outside of the town walls as the street in the town does not allow traffic, but do not worry you can walk around the town in about 5 minutes.

Beautiful terrace with a magnificent view ... But the seats are plastic, the wine list expensive and very limited and the saving grace is that the grilled meats are exceptionally well done ....likewise the ribolitta ....

Gentile Signora sono molto contento che abbia apprezzato la qualità della nostra carne alla griglia e anche della ribollita, ci fa molto piacere.
Per quanto riguarda le sedie le abbiano scelte a nostro gusto e ci dispiace che non le piacciano.
Mentre per la lista dei vini è stata una mia personale scelta inserire solo piccoli produttori di Chianti Classico della zona, senza esagerare nell'avere troppe etichette e le posso assicurare che dopo aver assaggiato personalmente tutti i vini inseriti sono molto contento del risultato.
Il prezzo finale di ciascuna etichetta riflette i costi di gestione del locale e purtroppo non possiamo operare in maniera differente,e inoltre le assicuro che sono allineati alla concorrenza.
Comunque vedrò lo stesso di tenere in considerazione le sue critiche cercando di avere qualche altra etichetta in listino.

Grazie.

I reserved a table so we didn't miss out after reading the good reviews. We sat on the balcony on a beautiful day. The wait staff were lovely and we had no problem communicating. The antipasti was ok. The tagliatelle in pork sauce was very nice and the wild boar ribs were devine. We gad white veans as a side. The Torte della casa was very nice too. My husband and I shared each dish and were well filled up by the end of the meal. Coupled with a half bottle of Chianti Classico, our bill was 45 euro. Well worth it. The only downside (and this is not really the restaurants fault) was the gentleman at the rable next to us who lit a cigarette when he sat down and again between each course. Its a free world outside, but difficult to savour our meal while breathing in that awful smell.

Just a wonderful place with stunning view to have lunch at after exploring Montefioralle.
The staff is friendly and food is tasty and you have a chance to drink local vine while enjoying the picturesque view of surrounding vineyards.
