Ristorante Da Omero is not new to Tuscany. In fact the restaurant has been open since 1913.
For best part of the year more locals than tourists come here, which is quite unusual for Tuscany. A quick look at the menu prices may explain the reason. The majority of pasta dishes cost 4 euros and main dishes start at 7.50 euros making it easily affordable for most people.
Naturally the wines are local Chianti and the restaurant almost considers it a duty to defend the old wine recipe against the modern ideas of small French oak barrels and 100% Sangiovese. This is the reason for arranging wine tastings that focus on tradition and originality. However, there is still room for some of the more modern wines with 500 different kinds of Chianti Classico on the shelves!
When driving from Florence to Greve in Chianti (or the other way around) you go through the small village of Passo dei Pecorai, which in itself hasn't much to offer. Only 250 people live here and the main road makes everything a bit dusty and noisy. However, the restaurant is a true oasis, and the place is ideal for excursions in Chianti and up to Florence with just 7 km to Greve in Chianti and 20 km to Florence.
