The right romantic restaurant!

Our hotel in San Leonino recommended this place, and it was a knock-out! The quaint interior, with its Pinocchio dolls and multiple wine bottles in shelves, captured the old small Italian eatery feeling quite well. The head waiter, who introduced himself as Daniel, was very accommodating and... read more

I discovered this place via comments on Interent. Going in Castellina, I absolutely wanted to try it and I did. First of all, it's no more the small shops with local foods/drinks where a small restaurant has been added. It has now larger capacities. But it's tasty, fast and very excellent! Congratulations

It's not a fancy restaurant; paper tablecloth and napkins, plain furniture. But the food is just GREAT. I and my wife ate two spectacular entries: one consisting of variations based on truffle, the other one consisting of kind of vol-au-vent filled by sausage, leeks and cheese. Then I had a soup with mushroom and chestnut, my wife pasta stuffed with... More

All of the dishes were outstanding. Pastas as well as meats were perfectly prepared. Get a reservation, don't walk - run. You won't be disappointed.

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 well worth the... 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
