Real gem!

This is a fantastic place to eat. We had the mixed Tuscan starter, photo attached, and the wild boar ragu, a local speciality Quality and service was excellent You will need to book in advance as it is often full

Been here for the third time, always good! Exactly what you expect from a Tuscany restaurant: amazing food, nice interior and friendly staff. Each item on the menu tastes just much better then in other places. All of this for a very reasonable price!

We tried Re Gallo twice. The first time half our order never came and after waiting an hour we finally gave up and asked for the check. It was for the full order. They did adjust the bill once we pointed out the error. Our second visit we again had an unreasonably long wait for orders to be taken and... More

This restaurant should be kept from all the guides because it is so good! We have been dining in Castellina many times a year for over 30 years, and this is the best. It has the wonderful quality of authenticity and honesty. while making absolutely no concessions to non-Tuscan tastes. Do not go there if you want "fast food" or... More

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.
