Giannino’s restaurant was born in 1899 as a modest family-run bottling store with a small kitchen: the dishes served were traditionally Tuscan.
Over the years, and after two world wars, Giannino became one of the most famous and popular restaurants amongst food and wine experts in Italy, until it achieved two Michelin stars in 1970.
