Il Ceppo Toscano sme navštívili na odporúčanie majiteľovho bratranca a to hneď dvakrát po sebe. Už aj tak výnimočný zážitok nám ešte viac spríjemnila naša krajanka Stela, ktorá sa nám oba večery osobne venovala a odporučila nám to najlepšie z Talianskej kuchyne. Ako predjedlo sme...More

We first reserved complementary appetizer which was amazing. Then we had brilliantly grilled beef with a good bottle of chiantti classico. Additionally the service was warm.

After 10 days in Italy my wife and I were looking for something other than pizza or pasta. This place is the real deal - lamb, beef, boar, chicken, etc. Menus combine exotic preparation techniques with quality cuts of meat. Unfortunately for us 2.5 lbs...More
