Menu is good, food is delicious. Wine list also respectable. However, decor and ambience looks cheap. Service is friendly but except the maitre d is unprofessional and not well trained.

The restaurant has its own car park as its about 1km from the town. It is very pleasantly set out and the staff are welcoming and friendly. It is everything that you would expect from a high class eatery and the prices in the menu reflect that so be aware before you stumble across this. For us this was a... More

Our GPS had us take SR222 from Siena to the restaurant which is a windy road with great views (for those who have visited California it is almost as twisty as HWY1 in Marin County north of San Francisco.) I got a bit car sick on the way up by letting my wife drive, so I was a bit concerned... More

...by the bad reviews. We knew when we made lunch reservations about the Michelin star. We had lunch at another nearby Michelin starred restaurant the previous day, so we were prepared for a let-down, or at least to walk away jaded by our earlier experience. We were realistic - the level of service and quality of presentation, ambiance etc translates... More

To many, paying over $30 for two ounces of quail and some soup would be a normal affair, but not us. We did review the menu but obviously misunderstood, as it's set up like a price fix by food category. VERY expensive compared to other restaurants in Castellina.

I wanted to return to this restaurant where i had a lovely meal a couple of years ago. But we were in for a bad experience. The head waiter or boss spook porely or no english and didn't bother to do an effort to understand us. We ordered Fiorentina steak and wanted some pasta as side dish , for a... More

We came back to this quite famous restaurant after some years and were not disappointed. It still deserves its long-held Michelin star. It was, as usual, very busy: it is essential to book well ahead in the summer! It was a chilly evening but people chose to eat on their covered verandah and as a thoughtful touch, warm wraps were...

Poor service in general and overpriced food that lacked inspiration or creativity...this was the most expensive meal we had while in Tuscany for 12 days and the least satisfying... There is lots of attitude and window dressing but little in terms of quality of food... And the food was served luke-warm rather than hot. Please find another place to eat!... More

This familly run restaurant very much deserves it's Michelin star with wonderful home cooked food made with local ingedients. The wine list as you would expect with a restaurant that serves food of this quality is vast and varied. They have a lovely outside eating area for the warmer evenings.
