Relax: you are in Bengodi... This historic place is in the heart of Castelnuovo Berardenga, and has re-opened under new management starting April 2014. The gracious blend of traditional Chianti cuisine, the fantastic setting in the courtyard of a former medieval castle, the skillful and courteous service and the well-stocked wine cellar will make your dinner or lunch at Bengodi the experience of a lifetime!

Castelnuovo Berardenga is an ideal starting point to explore Chianti Classico wines of the area. While you are there, you absolutely can't miss Enoteca Bengodi. The plate of local meats and cheeses is fabulous and the wine selection superb (and often refreshed). We really enjoyed...all the pasta dishes (especially the heavenly tartuffo!) ... even more so with wine! The owner is helpful and talkative and always up for a wine challenge!More
Had it not been for the recommendation of the hotel where we stayed nearby, we would have never visited Enoteca Bengodi in the small commune of Castelnuovo Berardenga.
A beautiful narrow restaurant with an eclectic and almost romantic ambiance is well attended by one of...the owners. The signature Risotto alla Bengodi is excellent and prepared table-side inside a wheel of local cheese that blends and flavors withMore
My wife and I visited this restaurant on a whim when staying nearby. We didn't have a reservation, but they were able to squeeze us in while providing outstanding service and never making us feel rushed.
The risotto Bengodi is an experience in and of...itself, so I highly recommend it. We really enjoyed the cheese plate that had a fresh, aged, and very aged cheese with local nuts and jams - pepper, pear and cinnamon, and ginger. We topped our mains off with a pastiera and went out to enjoy the rest of the night.
Hope to visit again someday.More
Probably the best meal we’ve had in Tuscany.
Everything about it was great!
The service, the food the atmosphere.
I had a spinach soufflé to start and my husband had a selection of cheeses. For mains I had mushroom pasta and my husband pork.
Do go if you get the chance.More
Bengodi, on the main square of Castelnuovo, is characterised by a deep and true passion for the Tuscan way of life. The choice is limited, but the food fresh, and the quality of the ingredients high. Paired to an incredible passion for wine and gastronomy,...it leads to an overwhelming experience. It’s only an enoteca, but much more than an enoteca. This is a symbol of the good Tuscan way of life!More
The food is delicious. My wife and I each had a pasta dish and we shared the duck with onions. The food is incredible. This is our second dinner here in 3 nights. The host is amazingly attentive and personable. He also doubles as the...translator if you don’t understand the Italian menu . Great wine selection. The setting is charming. Truly an unforgettable experienceMore
