My family and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at this restaurant tonight. The food- all I can say is wow. The freshest produce skilfully cooked into the perfect dish, as well as the very hospitable maître d, Max, made for a truly memorable dining experience. Ado, the other waiter, was also very friendly and has a ceramics gallery in Chianti.... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, but I had also seen it listed as a top choice in the region on TA. It was my boyfriend and I's favorite dinner in Tuscany! Deliciously fresh cheese and pasta!!! Good wine, excellent service. Wonderful dining experience that we'll definitely recommend to friends/family visiting Tuscany in the future.

The restaurant location is wonderful: on top of a Chianti hill and inside a small inner courtyard. The food was delicious. We had two pasta dishes as first course, and a "bistecca alla fiorentina" as second course. Both were very well prepared and served. Everything was accompanied by a superb local wine. The service was careful and friendly. We were... More

I was desperately keen to try this restaurant, having read so many fabulous reviews here – so much so that when I couldn’t make it on the night we booked, I ditched another restaurant to make sure we got to experience Il Celliere. And that’s part of the problem with having high expectations – they are hard to meet and... More

Our party of three dined here the day before Easter, 2014 and we were not disappointed in our choice. It was well worth the 15 mile drive from Castelnuovo Berardenga along twisty roads. Max the host was very kind and had our table ready upon our arrival 20 minutes early. The space is very clean and has a modern feel... More

We read the reviews and decided Trip Advisor couldn't be wrong on this place. We made the right choice! Definitely the best dinner we had in Italy. As we sat in the quaint, open outdoor seating part of the restaurant, the manager brought over a plate of fresh truffles! Massive truffles, probably the size of tennis balls... We were encouraged...

I found this restaurant through Tripadvisor and went there full of expectations . The arrival to the restaurant is an attraction itself because it is in a very old and beautiful part of the city . We arrived without a reservation and were promptly seated . The facilities are very cool , very modern and clean in a house made... More
