Great and plentiful, perfect!

I had booked a trip to Castello di Brolio for my boyfriends 30th, the lunch was called 'light lunch' it was more than a light lunch, pleasingly so. I would recommend the wine tasting package with light lunch to anyone. Great service and we have now discovered that we can get the chianti classico... read more

We've been in Brolio this august and, after a beautiful walk in the castle, we stop for a dinner at Osteria. We tasted delicious wines and the food was very very good, with a good choise and season vegetables. congrats to the chef and the staff, hope to be there again

Fresh food, beautiful and relaxed atmosphere, and good wine--what more could you ask for! It was the icing on the cake to complete our visit to the castle and wine tour.

We had lunch here after tasting and buying the excellent wines of Brolio. It was a wet day, so we were not able to enjoy the terrace and ate inside in what is rather like a café in a British motorway services. The chairs backs are so upright that I had to keep standing up to lessen the backache. The... More

A friend of ours who lives in Siena drove us out to this place in the Chianti region for a late lunch. The chef is a friend, and he prepared a truly stunning multi-course meal for us, starting with a poached egg served with truffles, moving on to numerous other courses, including a meat course that featured beef served 4...

After a day driving from Florence we had dinner booked for us at this restaurant and it was definitely one of the best locations in which we are during our Italian trip. The service was excellent, the cost reasonable and the food very good indeed! If you are in the area it's well worth it!

The history of the family and the wine-making operation makes the dinner extra-special. The menu for the tour is fixed, but all was great. Wines picked to accompany the courses were well-thought out. Box garden out front found our chefs picking herbs and fresh veggies for dinner.

Very nice place. Beautiful location. The food was great. It seems that, as a rule, tourists in Tuscany have dinner a bit early. We arrived at 9pm and most of the clients didn't take too long to leave. Maybe it's a good tip for the ones without reservation. If you are visiting the south of Chianti, this place is worth...

A number of us did the tasting menu, and it didn't seem like the chef picked the dishes he was most proud of for the tasting menu. It was a good value. The wine, for example, wasn't as good as the wine selected by the members of our group who were ordering a la carte. It was good food, and... More

This restaurant is located right next to the Brolio Castle, in a wooded section... very nice. The food, wine and service were excellent. I had the 4 course "seasonal" menu and every dish was delicious.
