This restaurant is a true gem. Giorgio is a gem and makes this restaurant fun. The food was good and there was plenty of it. If you are looking for an out of the way restaurant. This is it.

To me this is one of the ‘hidden gems’ of Chianti. Tucked away in Monti, not far off the 408, you’ll find Giorgio’’s lovely little restaurant serving delicious homemade fare. Featuring truffles, the set menu changes a bit from day to day but always fabulous....More
