“Very good, very traditional, but limited menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

This is a really nice traditional Tuscan restaurant. Small, not at all pretentious, and the food is excellent. But th menu is limited, and is heavy on meat dishes. So vegetarians have little choice. But the place is friendly, and the food is great.

“Great restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

We stayed in Castellina for a long time and had the chance to have dinner at Papacqua many times.
I can say it's the best in the region, with fresh food, good wine, fantastic staff (Tatiana is a special young lady!)!
We went to one special night with live music and candles. It was one of the most special nights in my life! The couple sang many tipical italian songs which really moved me.
Dario and his father are fantastic people who will welcome you at any time.
I definitely recommend!

“A pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Thought this would be a basic bar but had a marvellous meal with good wine and excellent service. Staff happy to translate menu into English. We were made to feel very welcome.
