Greve in Chianti: La Cantina

Piazza Trento 3 , Phone:

Reviewed by: Amanda N from Australia, review #3144

When: 2008

This restaurant was great, in fact we went back a second time for our last night in Tuscany. Friendly, caring service & lovely food, especially the mussel soup!

We dined at this restaurant in Nov 08. We spent 4 weeks travelling all over Italy and this was one of our favourites. We went for pizzas for lunch which were very nice and decided to go back to try the pasta for dinner. Lovely overall experience. Great service which goes the extra mile with a little 'surprise' at the end of dining. Recommended!

This restaurant disproves the theory that you can't get a bad meal in Italy. The food is poor, the service worse. We have given it 3 tries. It doesn't get better.

Directions: By the main bus stop in Greve

Because this place is conveniently close to us, we wanted it to be good, so we gave it 3 tries. Unfortunately, our first experience was repeated 3 times. The service is gloomy, rushed, and impersonal. The food is very slow in arriving - and that says something in Italy where food is always slow in arriving. When it does come, it is quite inferior to almost every other place that serves food. In talking with the local people, it seems that this is not a place they favor at all. So, find some place else in Greve or surroundings, don't waste a meal.
