We were leaving for home in the morning, so are early. The welcome we had could not have been better, also the way we were treated by the staff could not have been improved on.
Our meal was excellent from the delicious starter to a great desert.
We have been meaning to eat here for a few years and had not got round to it and now having sampled will certainly be back next year.
Our meal outside was ideal, allowing the grandchildren to run around the garden.

Thank Graham S

Really enjoyed this visit. We booked because I found it in the Michelin Green Guide and it said we could eat outside. So the 4 of us did. It was a lovely warm night. The young lady who served us always had a smile on her face ( fairly rare in some Tuscan towns ! ) and her boss the owner was incredibly welcoming and explained the menu choices very carefully. I think we knew straightaway he was proud of what he was serving - ( its a family restaurant ). The evening was lovely - the food was indeed outstanding and the service perfect. The wines were superb and not expensive. All in all,our best dinner in Tuscany. A real find.

Very nice restaurant. Good food (mitici Pici alla vecchia maniera, a special home-made pasta) and good service. Medium price. We paid less than 50 euros in two people but my husband got only the antipasto. It is ok because the dishes are elaborate (I even had meat with truffle) and the ingredients Fresh. Red wine good as usual in this area of the country. Be aware that the restaurant is not in the city of San Miniato but outside in the country. It is difficult to find it if you use Google maps. I suggest to start following the gps only when you are already in San Miniato, otherwise, if you arrive from the opposite direction, it drives you in a wrong place.

Great place in the countryside between Florence and Pisa, lovely service by Salvatore!! The antipasti were delicious followed by an assortment of pastas and a risotto dish. Since it was truffle season, we had truffle ravioli and a truffle risotto...spectacular!! Worth the drive!!

We returned to San Miniato after a day of touring nearby towns. Somehow our dinner reservations at restaurant in town were "lost." Fortunately, I had Il Convio on my list of Trip Advisor recommended restaurants so we headed that direction hoping to find a table. It was a Sunday evening and they looked closed. However, the owner invited us in where we enjoyed a tremendous feast from appetizers, main courses and deserts. Everyone's dish was cooked to perfection and the local truffles and wine were fantastic. Service was excellent, attentive and helpful. Our 15 month old grandson was clearly very welcome and they went out of their way to make him a special dish that he loved. Il Convio saved the evening with great food and service. Highly recommended.
