This place was recommended to us by our wine tasting host, we expected overpriced standard food. We got there and they told us they are booked solid. After little convincing, we managed to get a table. We ordered the mixed crostini platter for anti pasta and the sliced filet style beef (red) for main. Both dishes were amazing. For desert... More

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of Svetlana (Il Cellese) and we were very impressed! We started out with the caprese salad and my husband and I ordered a pasta each. One of my benchmarks of a true Italian restaurant (anywhere in the world) is their ability to make an outstanding caprese salad- Re Gallo did not disappoint.... More

Summer evening sat outside x4. Charming service, food simple but tasty and good value. Owner persuaded us to try Mazzei M36 in preference to mid-range Brunello -well worth it. Bought 6bottles from producer next day (only 3euros less than restaurant price). One of the better ones!

A charming family restaurant! Most of the diners were Italians. Attentive wait staff. A 3-generation family gathered there to celebrate a first Holy Communion.

So perfect that we had dinner twice during our stay in the Chianti region! To give you an idea, we tried the Tuscan ham with melon, the ravioli with pecorino and truffles, the chicken breast with porcini mushrooms and truffle and the grilled beef fillet with porcini mushrooms, with insalata and roasted potatoes. The least that we can say is... More

We chanced across this gem while hungry and looking for lunch. I had the pici which was fresh and tasty. My husband had a steak salad that was very delicious. The salad was fresh and the steak simply cooked very nicely. We sat outside and enjoyed the breeze. It was a lovely lunch.

Ate here twice during a short time in Castellina! Great restaurant, excellent service, good staff but the food is the real star here, fantastic, would highly recommend. At busy times you may need to book.
