Delicious and authentic

If you are stay close to Greve, this is the place to book. Rustic, hearty, delicious Tuscan food. The wild boar stew is sensational. Wine list excellent, and the service was friendly and efficient especially as we had small children in our party. The view from the outside tables is stunning.

This super quaint restaurant is one I'll return to again and again. It's probably my favorite restaurant in the area. The food was perfect and the sense of joviality and conviviality of being crammed into this tiny place full of locals made a lunchtime meal feel like a party. Montefioralle is so perfectly picturesque, you feel as though you are... More

We went to La Castellana and ordered our meals based on reviews we found online. They seem to specialize in truffles and mushrooms! We ordered pomodoro bruschetta for entree, truffle mushrooms for a side and for mains we ordered the steak with balsamic and the ravioli with truffles and a mushroom and truffle sauce. I can honestly say (and I've... More

We discovered this restaurant thanks to all of the great Trip Advisor reviews and we are so fortunate for that. We were staying near the center of Greve in Chianti and unfortunately the restaurants in the piazza were underwhelming and crowded at best. This was exactly what we were looking for! We had a wonderful view from the terrace and... More

We are in the stunning village of Montefioralle for a week and have been to this restaurant twice already . The food is exceptional - beautifully cooked . Fabulous beef dishes and truffles are a speciality here. The setting overlooking a wonderful Tuscan valley also exceptional . Please go if you can !

My favorite restaurant at Tuscany - specialized at Porcini and truffles :). Short ,but well prepared list of wines plus good staff and localization make this place good opportunity for dinner under open sky.

We booked dinner here and unfortunately it was raining the night we came and so we couldn't sit outside. That was okay though because the inside is cosy! We had a nice meal here although I wouldn't say it was fantastic. The starter of cheese and truffles was good. The main of pasta with lemon and cheese personally I didn't... More

It's right up there with the likes of Ristoro di Lamole for me. Amazing peaceful view, very special menu and incredibly well-presented, tasty food. Very impressed.

Unfortunately, we found this restaurant (through a recommendation) the last night of our stay in Greve. It is a must visit! Everything we had here was delicious: the burrata cheese with shaved truffle appetizer, the pappardelle al cinghiale, and the truffle ravioli with shaved truffle on top. Let us not forget that the view from the outdoor terrace is breathtaking... More
