    Our server was exceptional and created a great experience for us. We could not believe the size of the raw steak that he brought to us for approval, prior to grilling on the wood fire. We had an authentic Tuscan steak dinner and loved every minute of it❤️

    Very nice waiter, who made us feel very welcome. We had one of the biggest T-bone steaks I've ever seen, which was really good!

    Amazing food (we had the salumi and pecorino with truffles, and the steak Florentine) accompanied with a great bottle of Chianti. Could not have asked for better service, we had a truly wonderful evening!

    The Fiorentina Steak for which we came was flawless and tasted great! However, the side dishes, fried potatoes and vegetables, were undercooked and not on par with meat. Deserts were good and our waiter was very friendly and humorous. Overall pretty good.

    This is around our fifth visit to Pestello over the last three year of visits to the area and it is one our favorites. Pietro is a master of his profession and took very good care of us!

    We come to the Pestello for almost 20 years and were never disappointed. This time we had dinner inside (for lunch and warm temperatures we like the terrace as well), food and wine quality as well as service were excellent. We had the typical tuscan food which is just great. We will come back, promise!

    Situated next to road in the middle of Chianti this place offers very good Food. We were sitting on the covered terrace. The Starters, the pasta and finally the Fiorentina were really good. Had 2 very nice recommended bottle of red wine. Also the Service was very good and we straight had chemistry with the waiter. For sure we will go back. You should just try it! See you Eric

    The quality of food was overall allright, the slices of calf filet were good, maybe we had some bad luck with the pasta with mushrooms. The service was good, the atmosphere is simple. Prizes are all right. Overall we can recommend the restaurant.

    We have been in Tuscany many times and Ristorante Pestello has been our favorite restaurant, In fact they have been the reason we visit Tuscany in 2018 too!! Everything we had, antipasti Pestello, Truffle ravioli, wild bear picci and bistecca, all of them were exceptional. They have a very good wine list. Fireplace room has the best ambiance in frosty winter days.
