Fodor's Expert Review Osteria di Passignano

$$$$ Passignano Italian Fodor's Choice

In an ancient wine cellar owned by the Antinori family—who also happen to own much of what you see in the area—is a sophisticated restaurant ably run by chef Marcello Crini and his attentive staff. The menu changes seasonally; traditional Tuscan cuisine is given a delightful twist through the use of unexpected herbs. The extensive wine list includes local vintages as well as numerous international labels. Daylong cooking courses are also available.
