This was a fabulous dining experience. My friends and I tried the 4 course tasting menu with matched wines. Undoubtedly, the standout dish was the duck liver pate corn bread sandwich with dark chocolate and onion jam…one of the best things I have ever tasted. The setting was cosy and the service delightful. Highly recommended!

On our trip to italy we stopped in this restaurant that had only good reviews but unfortunately we were disappointed this time. 6 people, 12 different dishes and only one was really good and was ok for the price charged. One course EUR26, two courses EUR44 and three EUR56. The primi piatti were ok but in case of the spaghettini... More

Anyone lucky enough to be in the vicinity of beautiful Castellina in Chianti, who enjoys the execution of good food should not miss out on this fantastic restaurant. From the setting, overlooking the Tuscan Hills, the building - sympathetically modernised, with its understated luxury and elegance of its decor is more than enough to delight. However, when coupled with the... More

We ate lunch here while staying in Casstellina in Chianti and were rewarded with a wonderful meal served in a warm inviting atmosphere. The food was beautifully presented and was delicious. The prices were reasonable considering the quality of the food, excellent. My husband had the quail and I had cod crepes, both were outstanding.You will feel pampered. A great... More

We went to this restaurant at night, so we couldn1t really appreciate much of the view, but the setting of the restaurant is very nice and so is the waiter. The wine was very good butwe had better food for less price even in Castellina. Worth a visit, though.

Whilst touring around the hill towns of Tuscany in early October 2013 we came upon this jewel of a restaurant, by complete surprise, in the remote countryside town of Castellina in Chianti. It was lunchtime on a weekday, and from the moment of walking through the doors into the elegant décor of the dining room, and seeing the tables laid... More

Son and daughter in law arranged for dinner at this Michelin star restaurant while we were visiting the area. First, the setting was wonderful, high above the Chianti area in a charming town, and the restaurant itself was just lovely. Service was impeccable. The breads and amuse bouche were so delicious! I enjoyed the Sapori autumn menu, the color and... More

Located in a one way system in Castellina - take the road to Pogibonsi - right and right again - cannot see restaurant from road, but the "Private Parking" sign visible. Fantastic food, all disches beautifully prepared and presented and 2 x Amussee buches dishes were perfect, along with fresh bread. Waiter recommended a wine that was less than the... More

The starters were delicious,as well as the main course. Great tastes in a peaceful environment with soft background music. Very good house Chianti wine. Excellent and friendly service.It is worth the trip to find such a good restaurant and have the last dinner before leaving beautiful Tuscany
