About
A classical Tuscan restaurant in the shade of our medieval castle of Poggio alle Mura. 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.

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

What a delightful experience. The price quality ratio of the food is not quite in proportion as I compare it with the restaurants with a star where I may have eaten. It is a very nice experience if you like beautiful food and beautiful wines....More
