We had dinner at the restaurant right after a two hour wine tasting at the wine shop next door. The food was outstanding! We had their cheese plate, mushroom salad( was fresh mushrooms picked that day) and a Tuscany steak! This place sits at one of the top restaurants we had bee ronin Italy! Aside from the food the ambience... More

We stayed three nights at this lovely winery!! What a beautiful, inviting place. An old castle in the hills of Chianti, small and quaint. The owners and staff were quite welcoming and knowledgeable. The rooms were spacious and clean. The tasting room was simple yet elegant! And the wine was to die for! The restaurant is what I would describe... More

Il Celliere has re-opened under new management. For years this restaurant has stood out for its imaginative cooking and lovely setting in the 'Rocca' of Castagnoli. It can be hard to find and the service is can sometimes be slow, but it has always been a friendly, high-quality establishment at a moderate price. The new management has kept to old... More

We regularly visit this restaurant - it is a beautiful building in the rustic Tuscan hamlet of Castagnoli. The food here is consistently fantastic; in particular I would recommend visiting on Thursdays, when fresh fish is available (a rarity in Tuscany!). The restaurant is family run, and specialises in fresh ingredients and innovative plates. Definitely worth a visit if you're... More

I love someone who is passionate about seasonal produce so when shown the porcini mushrooms collected earlier that day that would be prepared with homemade parpadelle I was excited. However, a plate full of over cooked pasta with exactly 5 small pieces of porcini - was disappointing. My wife's spinach and ricotta ravioli numbered just 2 and the intention may... More

I still would recommend this place because food and setting is amazing. We had to wait over two hours for our main course. All other tables were served before us. Sadly, we did have to complain as my son fell asleep at the table. If the service was on point... I would have given it a five star.

We had 2 great meals here. They even made home made gluten free pasta and bread which was a special treat. Food was delicious, service excellent. Stunning setting in a tiny village.

Our small group had toured the attached winery and had a great tasting experience. So a few days later we booked dinner at Il Celliere. The atmosphere and service were very good. Our food selections ranged from pastas to pork dishes. Portions were small and good. One of our meals was listed on the menu as pork tenderloin, however when... More

The best pasta in my life! I had a home made tagliatelle al tartufo nero and it was amazing! I have no words to describe! Thank you so much!
