Me and my partner visited he restaurant while we were in Gaiole for L'Eroica and we had dinner at the restaurant. During the L'Erica week the restaurant serves traditional dishes and local specialties. The food was great, everything we ordered tasted fresh. They have very good wines on bottles. The choice on glass is limited but still quite decent. We... More

This restaurant is tucked away in the renovated castle housing the Rocca di Castognoli winery and B&B. It is not owned by the winery, but does feature the wines of Rocca di Castignoli. If you are staying at the winery or in the Gaiole area, this is the perfect pace to eat. Great pasta and truffles in a nice atmosphere.

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

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
