Greve in Chianti: Ristorante Borgo Antico

Loc. Dimezzano, Lucolena, 50022 Greve in Chianti , Phone: 055-851-024
Closing day: Tuesday (open only weekends off season)

Reviewed by: Jane from US/Italia, review #2355

When: 2007

Hard to find but worth it! The food is very good Tuscan food with extra touches here and there. There is a warm interior and lovely veranda for summer.

Directions: Difficult to find. From Greve take road to Figline. Just past Dudda look for sign on right to Lucolena and turn. Follow that road past Lucolena and keep going. Eventually you will see Antica Borgo on your left. There is a parking lot across the street.

This is a place we will take our visitors to for both lunch and dinner. It is a traditional old borgo that has not been terribly regentrified. It consists of the restaurant and rooms to rent. The food is well-above average with nice selections. Ken had tagliata (sliced steak) with balsamic which he said was excellent. Others had steak with peppercorn sauce which was equally good. I had spareribs that were outstanding. Antipasti, primi and contorni were all very good and dulce was too good to resist. There is a good wine selection. During the summer there is a lovely veranda with a nice view but cold weather dining is quite nice inside. The owners and staff are warm and welcoming.
