Small, rustic, great service, great food!

We had lunch in Chianti and it was suggested that we try Il Re Gallo. Although small, the food is amazing and service was excellent. Amazing papardelle with boar sauce! My husband had the filet and said it was one of the best he has eaten. It is small and not fancy, prices are very good but... read more

We were there on a Sunday at lunch time and should really have made a reservation. However, we were squeezed in at the front. Good meal (saffron and zucchini gnocchi, wild boar ragu), good service. Not cheap but not too expensive.

This is our favorite restaurant in Castellina. We have dined here at least 8 times and have never ever been disappointed. The food is thoughtfully prepared and extraordinarily tasty. I personally highly recommend the pappadella pasta with wild boar sauce (If you have not had boar in Tuscany you have not yet lived). The desserts here are so good that... More

Pappadella pasta with wild boar sauce, chicken breasts with shaved porcini mushrooms for me, veggie "pie" with cheese sauce and herb crusted lamb chops for my partner with a superb local wine - food was truly delicious as our agriturisimo hostess recommended. Perhaps we should have made a reservation (low season and a Sunday night our hostess thought it not... More

It is a such shame that we don't live somewhere nearer to Re Gallo. Even with three hours of car journey, it is really worth it. From antipasti to dessert, every course was thoughtfully balanced with flavour and texture. Also they make the most delicious special artisan breads. Service was excellent and friendly.

I have a few rules of thumb to avoid bad restaurants, 2 of which are staying away from main squares and restaurants that have photos of the plates. This restaurant is located in the town square, although a very small and charming town and had some photos displaying. Nonetheless after reading some reviews we have decided to try it and... More

This is a real five star experience! You have to reserve a table! But if you are in, you not want to leave any more until you have eaten everything! Nice and warm atmosphere. Really excellent food and the prices a not cheap but very fair for what you get! We will come back!

We went to this place to have lunch on our honeymoon. We ordered one portion of bruschetta (3pieces of different bruschettas) which was more than enough for a starter for two of us. Then my husband had pasta with rabbit ragout and I had a pasta with porcini (mushroom) in meat sauce and olives. They were AMAZING! Also ordered a... More
