We are Lucia, Dulia, Lisa and Saro, Tuscan people. We love our region and we have lived immersed in its flavors all our lives. We are not new to this profession; welcoming who wants to get a taste of the real culinary delights of Tuscany.
The Gallo Nero restaurant opened for business in 1984 in the building that, from 1802, was used as the local stables from where a vitally important communication service for the Grand Duke of Florence had its base. In the 25 years since we started this business, things have changed a lot.
In the beginning, Gallo Nero was a trattoria, a place for local people to gather for a glass of wine and a game of cards. In those days the place reverberated with the voices and laughter of the men and women of the town, the same voices of the people who made Chianti and its land what it is today.
Things changed in the 80’s with the onset of the first tourists to the area. We began a long process of evolution, updating and improving the restaurant with the passing of the years. The simple heart of the original trattoria has remained in the kitchen and in our hopes for who visits us, with new ideas and experiences all coming together to expand the restaurant with, along the way, some unexpected discoveries like original stone work and previously hidden trapdoors hiding long forgotten treasures.
The present restaurant is elegant and welcoming; a comfortable and warm place to taste our regions’ wines, savor homemade pasta and take time to enjoy our excellent Italian cheeses.
From our wood burning grill we can offer you the best meat this area has to offer, Florentine steak, spiced sausages and prime rib all cooked over an open fire and accompanied by local produce to enhance the flavors, such as Extra Virgin olive oil.
A visit to the Gallo Nero is a moment to pause in your trip to this area, a place to enjoy good food and optimism, a place for reflection, to gather the best moments of the day and savor them in company with a good glass of wine in your hand. It is a place to share an evening with someone you love, with those who are sharing your vacation with you, a place where every color, flavor and perfume has been considered for your complete enjoyment.
