Veramente home cooking

We almost passed it by and wondered was it worth going in. But indeed it was - as much for the ambiance as for the food. Typical cucina povera where the taste of the ingredients comes to the fore with no frills. Friendly, if somewhat slow service but on holiday who's in a hurry. An uncomplicated... read more

We passed by this place a couple of times before we realised that this was in fact the Restaurant that had been recommended by our Hotel concierge. It is simple but warm and welcoming. Lovely staff, reasonable prices and a large selection of Tuscan specialities to choose from. The fried zucchini flowers were freshly made, piping hot and delicious. As... More

i have been a customer of taverna since 2001 and have always enjoyed myself at this restaurant. They have become more contemporary with themed menus available in addition to the old Tuscan standards. It is a warm, welcoming and casual place. The food is mainly culinary casalinga style. I had a veal tartare that was wonderful on a warm day.... More

We dined here twice during a short stay at Castelnouvo Berardenga. It was recommended by some of the locals. Food was good, mostly homemade and of excellent value. The service was friendly and warm/sincere. The interior is a bit cheesy, which appears to be typical for the area though. After all, we had a great evening here.

We have been visiting this area for twenty years and we always eat in the Taverna several times. It is a very traditional food with good quality food cooked simply. The staff are very friendly and it is excellent value for money.

I know that restaurant reviews can be incredibly subjective, how can a place have dozens of gushing reviews claiming the greatest and friendliest service ever while others claim it was a flop of epic proportions? My take on why La Taverna is so great is the food and how staff treated us. We dont need to be fawned over, nor... More

This taverna was recommended to us as having local colour and being both a bar and taverna. Sadly although the service was friendly and helpful the pasta dishes were presented to us as a glutinous mass which was not only unappealing and unattractive but was also unpleasant to eat. As there are many other restaurants in Castelnuovo in two weeks... More

Great local food, well presented, with plenty of choice. Very good value e.g. a litre of house wine for 5 Euros! Very friendly staff. Obviously it's mostly Italians who eat there - ask for the English translation of the menu.
