We have found this place by accident. We ate there with my wife. Their sparkling wine from Ferrari was on special, really good value for 3,5 euro. We ate wild boar antipasti (fantastic!), my wife adored the spinach-filled ravioli with tomato sauce (simple, but elegant) and we both liked the soup of the day and the mixed salad from fresh...

This restaurant is very popular and is best to book.I was lucky as a solo diner to get a small table inside without a reservation.The staff were very helpful and I ordered pici with meat sauce followed by wild boar stew.Both were very good and the house red was also good.Definitely worth a return visit.

Looking for a nice Little authentic Restaurant, this was the place we found, and it was awsome. Good Food, nice plates, fantastic wine (even cheaper than in the local vineries).

I’ve eaten at this restaurant on almost every visit to Castellina (at least 10 times!) The food is outstanding, the service friendly and the atmosphere splendid! I have yet to be disappointed with anything that I’ve tried, everything is delicious! Try the Caprese salad!! We even talk about it when we’re home in Toronto

Look we maybe getting fussy after so many great lunches and dinners in Chianti region. Caprese, Parma ham and melon very good our pasta with truffle and house special pasta was a little thicker than we like. Service was good and good value. I'm still giving 5 stars as think we are just setting a high bar.

Very good food, home made style. The staff is very helpful and kind. There is also an interesting wine list. The quality of the Tagliata (meat) is fantastic. The location is in the main square of Castellina close by the Rocca Medievale...in summer you can eat outside. Highly recommended!

We went here Sept 2014. The first night was a disaster! My fault though I ordered something I didn't like-when the owner saw my returned plate he came over to see what the problem was. He explained how the dish was prepared and I could see why I didn't like it. I had a free dessert and coffee and we... More

We stayed in the Castellina in Chianti area for a week this summer and were delighted to stumble across Rosticceria Il Re Gallo. We had dinner two nights of the seven we spent and had to seriously convince ourselves to try new places in an effort to not eat there every night. The location and ambiance of the restaurant are...
