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.

Our first stay in the Chianti area and we managed to book a table on a Sunday evening at very short notice. Arrived there and the waiters were very friendly (and helpfully spoke good English). Fabulous menu and lots of choice with local specialities. Delicious food and good atmosphere. It's no 1 spot on Tripadvisor is well deserved. Advisable to... More

A surprise feast in Castellina in Chianti: a festival of truffles prepared in a variety of ways, tuna carpaccio, fresh pastas, and a chicken breast with porcini mushrooms and truffles. We were delighted with the service and the food. The variety of breads served with the meal was a very nice touch. Reservations are needed as it fills up quickly.... More

I visited with friends for the first time and was very happy with the choice. Food isd typical Toscan and extremely tasty. Prices are rather OK and make it cost effecticve, Reservations are necessary as it is rather small. Outside sitting recommend for the summer.

This was good food done well. A very interesting wine list which prompted us to visit a couple of the wineries the next day. The service mostly good although he waitress was surly compared to the waiters. You'll find this restaurant just off the main square in Castellini. Have a walk past and browse the menu at some point.

Great place for dinner friendly service. Nice wine. I had veau carpaccio with a side of roast potatoes and my husband has a mozzarella salad. Deserts were also delicious.

We went to eat the first day we were at Chianti and we were absolutely astonished with the freshness of the food, the wonderful service and a good price. my suggestion would be to go for the meat...it cuts like butter and taste was amazing. perfectly cooked medium rare.
