Concierge.com's insider take:
In the hills above Florence, Zibibbo is a country restaurant that's still inside the city limits. The journey is well worth it. Benedetta Vitali's cucina is original, a blend of Tuscan comfort food that might include sformato (vegetable molds, kind of like unstructured mousselines), or a classic spaghetti with tiny wild clams, as well as stewed meat and fish. Benedetta named Zibibbo after a Sicilian grape, and plenty of the dishessuch as the pasta con le sarde (baked pasta and sardines) or the impepata di cozze (sautéed and peppered mussels)show her love for southern Italy. The wine list offers some quirky gems.
