We went there for lunch and we got a table at the window. The food was fantastic, and the Barbi's brunello choosed gave an extra taste.This was a luch that we will never forget.

Charging for tasting is the norm now but it should be done with a smile. It is a tough drive to get back to the winery and no longer worth it. They are closed on Wednesdays for lunch so do not know if that is still viable.

We had lunch in this small restaurant which is in the winery of Barbi. Our waiter Sandro was very friendly and helpful. The veal cheek and boar meat was fantastic. The pasta were very tasty as well. We had 2005 riserva wine of the winery. The wine was very good with a reasonable price.

After our wine tasting in july this year we had lunch here. It was ok, but the waiter was little bit strange.

7 of us went back to this Restuarant many with find memories of visits many years ago when the pinci was around the best in the area and the place had loads of diners, was run by a formidable maitre d and Barbi wines were good. This was a good lesson in how things in the hospitality industry change, inevitably,... More

Very friendly service, very good food. We had anchoise among others and we liked it very much. The traditional "Fran" (baked vegetables) reminded us our Sephardic dishes. Though we were seated outside we were expecting the restaurant overlooking some open land in such a beautiful setting, instead we were faced with the wine tasting shop. They should have a reason...

The homemade chutney with the cheeses was delicious. We had Brunello wine with our meal which was superb. The highlight was a free glass of vinsanto! Lovely food and fantastic service.

After a great visit in Siena we headed out to our next stop in Castelnuovo dell'Abate. As we departed, I said to my daughter, let's not take the direct highway, let's take the winding road that passes to the East so that we can get a real sense for the Tuscan country. Well after quite an adventure, passing by vineyard... More

We usually stop here for lunch while buying Brunello at the Barbi cantina, which is just a few steps away from the restaurant. Food is always well prepared with locally sourced ingredients, particularly the meats.

If you are in Montalcino, you Must eat and drink here! Follow Sandro suggestions and Lucia creations, and you will taste the real ancient-modern Super Tuscany.
