After nearly 40 years, this Italian veteran is still a magnet for the likes of Mick Jagger, José Mourinho, Mariella Frostrup and glossy locals of all ages. It’s bright and cheerful, with blue and white tiles, family photographs and a large garden with an adjustable roof and heaters. Loyal regulars come here to eat wholesome, peasant-style Tuscan food with no concessions to modern fads or fancy presentation – think crostini with garlicky chicken livers or carabaccia (a vivid green mix of vegetables and pecorino served on toast with a poached egg), followed by superb Chianina organic T-bone steaks (cooked ‘rare’ over charcoal) or La Famiglia’s much-loved wild-boar sausages. Legendary owner Alvaro Maccioni died in November 2013, but his daughter Marietta continues the tradition of comfortable hospitality. The restaurant feels like a family home and it is surprisingly child-friendly for such a fashionable place with buggies and toddlers alongside oligarchs and their minders.
