Here You will find many solutions for eating at the restaurant and where to dine in Montaione.
In fact, around Borgo La Casaccia, and a short drive distance, there are many typical Tuscan restaurants. Choosing isn't easy, but I can tell you that the quality is medium to high everywhere, and you won't risk bad experiences.
