Without a doubt, our best meal by far in Tuscany. We're traveling for a month in the region (husband from Germany originally and I from US). We met the owner at his ceramic shop just outside of Radda (Rampini Ceramiche, which we also highly recommend for custom ceramics). He told us about his family restaurant and I had serious doubts....

My wife and I had the salted beef appetizer and the pork fillet with truffles. Both were incredible as was the home baked bread. To top it off the cheesecake dessert was one of the best we've ever had. For the quality of this food and service the price is extremely reasonable. Will be returning as much as possible till...

My wife and I didn't expect to see that the restaurant was packed. And for a good reason. The place is amazing. we visited at evening time. There was a large variety of meals type to chose from. The food was the best. The environment and vibe was best. Make sure to reserve sits before you arrive.

While staying at Castello Di Meleto, they recommended the drive over to Il Celliere and we were so glad we did. One of the highlight meals of our honeymoon, and after 12 days in Italy, that's saying something. The entire waitstaff was extremely attentive without being obnoxious. The food prep and homemade recipes were amazing and the wine pairing was... More

We shared a starter of Fresh Porcini mushroom flan and fresh black truffle shavings and both had the Sliced grilled filet beef and hot porcini mushroom sauté We had wine from the local... More

I've been travelling through Italy for about 3 weeks - through Venice, Bologna, and Florence - and have been trying to find the Italian meal worth writing about. Il Celliere finally gave me the opportunity. While not easy to find, it's worth the time to get here. The young owner works the floor himself, and clearly takes great pride in... More

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
