This is a fine restaurant situated in the tunnel behind the Main Street in Castellina. Good choice of Tuscan dishes and good value wine. Great for a cool night out after a hot day. Friendly service.

Castellina in Chianti is a beautiful village on the way to Siena. There you have this very nice restaurant - outside the Main Street in a rocky passage - such a peaceful place. The food is very simple but very good

Great find. Was one of the four restaurants recommended by our B&B host in a small town with so many restaurants. We were out of season and the only patrons in the restaurant, regardless the service and food were excellent. We did the full antipasti,...More
