This is such a nice restaurant. The food is very good. We had the ravioli with truffle and the sliced meat. Hallelujah. Delicious! The staff is so friendly and they do their very best to serve you. The ambiance is cosy and Italian. The wines are good. We went there three times in a row and we are definitely going... More

A nice little Osteria - with a predictably long list of wines available. The food looked nice, but we had stopped off only fir a drink.

Lovely restaurant in a quieter area of Castellina, but dont be fooled, we were lucky to get a table as we arrived around 19h30. Most of the restaurant was booked. Very good food and lovely red wine from the area.

We tried to dine at Il Re Gallo last year, but they were completely booked. This year we arrived before they were open and were rewarded with a nice outdoor table, charming service and great food and wine. The lamb chops with salad, and eggplant parmasan were excellent, and the wine by the glass -- both the Prosecco and the... More

What a place. Nice terrace in the shade near the piazza. A choice of half-a-dozen delicious Chianti wines by the glass. And the food was amazing. Best tiramisu and best mozzarella we have had in Italy. All of that for a very fair price. On our Tuscany highlight.

We chose this restaurant due to its Tripadvisor rating but were disappointed overall in the quality of food. Our first issue was with the menu which was very confusing & poorly presented. We started with a mushroom/truffle sampler platter which was not what we expected & we couldn't even tell what we were eating. The best main entreé was a... More

Came to this restaurant twice in the same week whilst on holiday as we were so impressed with it. The staff were really attentive and friendly. The food was incredible. We had the most amazing sharing platter which is out of this world!! Beware if ordering as a starter - it's enormous!! But we ate it all! And the pasta... More
