As we enjoyed our dinner in Banfi Restaurant so much we decided to return to their Taverna for lunch. It was a very good choice. The room itself is traditional Tuscany Castle hall. We are delighted that a gigant like Banfi has the stile and...power to keep an eye on details, excellent customer service, very good quality food. The crispy egg was brilliant. And pasta was so beautyful that i did not dear to eat it at first. Fortunatrly the taste was as good as the look :) Tiramisu was very good- crispy outside, creamy inside well done. We were lucky to have the same waitresses today as in the dinner 2 days ago. So the service once more was brilliant. One more time- our greetings to the Chef Domenico, the waitresses and entire team. Thank you very much for a lovely lunch. We will be backMore

My wife and I came to the restaurant to celebrate a special occasion, and we were very happy we did! We highly recommend! We started the evening with an aperitif of Prosecco and homemade breadsticks on their patio. It was the start of a wonderful...evening. After enjoying our Prosecco on the patio, we proceeded to our table, enjoying more of our welcome drink. Our evening was memorable, made so by the splendid food, wine, service. We especially enjoyed all the little treats we were served throughout the course of our dinner beginning with our welcoming amuse bouche, to the petit four (petit seven actually!) and the final parting gift. Our salute to the chef Domenico! To complement the meal, the service by Olga and her team was impeccable! Thank you all for making it such a special evening for the two of us!More

Had an interesting tour of facilities making 11 million bottles of wine annually. Then we returned to Castello Taverns for 4 course lunch with paired wines. Excellent although we had driver pass on Grappa. Pork, pasta, dolce,and appetizer all for about 80 euros.

From the drive up to the property to leaving we loved every minute. Lunch set menu with wine was exceptional, we were offered an extra top up of wine with each course which was appreciated as the wine is amazing. Every course was exceptional, service...was first class. We were not charged extra for water or additional wine, grappa and coffee. This place is definitely recommended for a great long lunch experience in a Tuscan Castle. Will return for sure.More

A visit to the winery for a tasting followed by lunch. We were greeted by Pamela (owner of Banfi with her husband) who was absolutely fantastic and so welcoming - despite the size of the winery Pamela made it feel like a family affair. We...had a great wine tasting with Lisa which was followed by lunch. Our group loved the experience and personal care. Recommend.More

Fantastic food, great service and attention to detail! We had 5-course wine pairing lunch, which we highly recommend. The staff was very attentive and made a lot of effort to satisfy our food allergies. We enjoyed every minute of our experience there!

What a special place! Beautiful restaurant, gorgeous grounds (we stayed at the Castello farmhouse) and amazing wine. We had a 5 course lunch paired with Banfi wines, OMG! What an experience. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Unforgettable afternoon. Highly recommend it.

Went inside, but needed a reservation, even though they were not busy. Came across like we could not sit down, so we left and went wine tasting instead.

As with anything at Castello Basnfi, service is at the highest level possible. That should not be construed as meaning the food suffers, quite the opposite. Our lunch at La Taverna was fantastic. The pastas, lamb and beef were as good as I've had anywhere

We were staying for a week in the area and one member of our group reserved a wine tasting and meal for our group. It was a great experience. We started in the arrival area and were greeted by our outstanding host. She gave us...some information on the organization and then we had a tour. We had a wonderful time learning about Castello Banfi and then seeing the place. We then went to our wine tasting and meal. We had a great time enjoying the great wines and outstanding meal. We send out thanks for a wonderful day!!More
