Where to eat in the villages near Florence
Here’s how to combine beauty and flavour on your travels in Tuscany

Via S. Piero a Strada, 23 – Pontassieve (FI)
ph. +39 055 3981242
All the allure of a country house in Chianti Rufina, just outside Florence, with just 15 covers and four B&B rooms. The restaurant is the domain of chef Edoardo Tilli and his wife, superb hostess Klodiana Karafilaj. The menu is contemporary, but features traditional ingredients such as game and home-cured meats.

Piazza Giacomo Matteotti, 66 – Greve in Chianti (FI)
ph. +39 055 853029
Superb quality meats and multi-award-winning Tuscan charcuterie. Next door to the celebrated butcher’s shop in the pretty square of Greve in Chianti is the bistro, where you can sample all the specialities and traditional dishes.

Dario Cecchini, the “butcher-poet”, is a veritable institution in Panzano in Chianti, where over the years he has quadrupled his presence: in addition to the Antica Macelleria there are also the restaurants Officina della Bistecca and Solociccia, and the Cecchini Panini Track (don’t miss the MAC Dario hamburger).
