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.

Excellent service and food. I tasted a boar with sweet and bitter sauce, which was delicious. The wine is also very good and the place and decoration completed the scenario for the excellent lunch we had there.

After visiting the town of Montalcino, it was recommended by the people at Enoteca di Piazza Wine Room that we lunch at Taverna Dei Barbi. (We wanted to lunch at a winery). It had been a rainy morning and we were looking forward to a warm Italian lunch. The place had just opened for lunch and was not yet busy.... More

We had a lunch at Barbi after visiting their impressive wine cellars. That was probably one of the best meals that we had in Tuscany – not the cheapest one though. The food was delicious – made with heart and served with attention. The wine was also very good but that was to be expected; however, I think they should... More

We had just finished the wine tour and we stopped for lunch at the taverna. The food was very tasty and had great, strong flavors. I would recommend the lunch if you are doing the winery tour.
