Nice little Osteria in Casciano.

Came in for dinner after a long day on the road. Food wasn't bad and prices are very reasonable. Usual Tuscan fare with cold meat starters, main courses of rabbit and pasta with wild boar (cinghaile). All very good. We skipped dessert as we were very tired. Service on a Tuesday evening was a little... read more

I believe I've tasted half their menu, and it is without exception good. I have wisited the place twice, with my family. Should I point out the best on their toscan menu, it is their "cinghiale ragu", tasty and just wonderful.

This is a very charming restaurant in Casciano di Murlo (about 20 minutes from Siena). We went there three times because we were staying in a villa ten minutes away, and the food was sooooo good! The pasta, the steak, the brushetta al pomodoro. It was all delicious. The only dish I would not recommend is the Osso bucco. This... More

On our last night in Murlo we decided to try the local restaurant in Casciano, and boy are we happy we did. We actually showed up at 6:30pm not knowing that the restaurant did not open until 7:30pm. We were with my mom, who can only walk very short distances. We saw in the window that staff were in the... More

The bruschetta con Pomadora was wonderful as well as the as the pasta con Porcini, the Pici with garlic also was outstanding. This family Resturant in a small town deserves attention and should be a destination for those close by. This is our third year of enjoying the food in this charming Resturant .

Very authentic Tuscan Cuisine. We came here on our first night staying at La Palazzina nearby. Great start to a week in Tuscany.

La Taverna di Casciano is a little gem in the middle of nowhere, a family run taverna serving some great tuscan dishes. Not expensive, and full of local people which is the best recommendation you can get. Great place to go if you are staying at Fattoria Casabianca or anywhere in Murlo and surrounding areas.

Small dishes. Some dishes. And some really casual. Regular dessert. Overall the town and the food reflects the Tuscany.
