Everything was perfect! Atmosphere, food, wine and service. It was the ultimate Tuscany dining experience. So very charming. The Owner/Manager was warm, friendly, welcoming and ensured our afternoon was memorable. We know and love good, authentic italian food and we were not disappointed.

Honest local food in a beautiful setting. Winecard has a strong focus on the wines of Rocca di Castagnoli. Super fresh ingredients and super friendly service.

We were staying not far from the restaurant and our hosts recommended it, amongst several others. We weren't disappointed. We were welcomed very warmly and given a choice of tables in a large airy room ... it was still over 30 degrees outside at 8pm but it felt very comfortable. A complimentary glass of rose was poured whilst we considered... More

We were having a wonderful evening at this restaurant. We ordered a 3 course meal including: Bruschetta, mushroom risotto, beef, pork and chocolate dessert. The wine was lovely. Our experience was ruined however by the manager. As we were waiting for our starters, we noticed we had not received any bread. We noticed all the other tables had received this... More

Quite hard to find but once we got there we were pleasantly surprised. Set in an old courtyard on the first floor, the actual restaurant is in a large and impressive dining hall. Very child friendly, our young daughter is very good with food and chose the lamb cutlets which were really delicious. I had the gnocchi with dolcelatte and... More

The food and wine were excellent, but the dining room was also fantastic: the view from the windows is lovely and there was a wonderful breeze through them. The staff is very friendly and clearly dedicated to offering a first-class experience.

Everything from the food to service was absolutely superb. Duck breast with fruits was delicious, so were the ravioli with pecorino cheese and pears. Tiramisu was very airy and rich at the same time. Great place and highly recommended. The owner and the staff were very professional and attentive. A++++

By far the best restaurant we visited in Tuscany. Classy atmosphere, great service and attention to the smallest details. Very knowledgeable, passionate host and friendly helpful waiter. Delicious homemade bread. House aperitif. Best bruchetta we've ever had. The same did not apply for the steak, but it was good value and well garnished. Excellent dessert. Il Celiere shouldn't be missed... More

Others have said it, but this is a memorable setting for a family meal and I only wish that I hadn't left our visit to our last night. The room is modern yet set in a historic castle with fantastic views over the Tuscan Hills. My children raved about their duck dish (not on either menu !) whilst my bruschetta... More
