Some say you can't go back but Banfi only gets better each time we go. The food is delicious and creative. It is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in Italy. BTW, the Banfi wine is also great.

Without a doubt the most incredible food and service. Had a 5 course meal that is positively the best. Always a treat to visit and when we travel to Italy which is often we make sure to visit Banfi.

Thank you very much for your feedback and we are sorry if we did not exceed your expectations. We agree that to have twice beef in a 3 course lunch is not a good solution and we have already discussed with our kitchen team. Please...More

We ate here several times and found the food to be excellent and the service friendly. It's a bit out of the way but is a cozy little dining room with outdoor seating in the summer.

Lunch was served in a pleasant high-ceilinged room decorated with tapestries. We had the tasting menu which was paired with Castello Banfi wines. Service was immaculate and the food and wines excellent. Highly recommended.

A classical Tuscan restaurant in the shade of our medieval castle of Poggio alleMura. Taverna Banfi, open for lunch, is positioned beneath the vaulted arches of the former barrel cellars of the castle where Brunello once rested in large oak casks. In a very pleasant atmosphere, our menu offers the traditional dishes of Montalcino and Tuscany, enhanced by the freshness and authenticity of local ingredients. To respect the calm of our guests, pets are not allowed.
