Great pre-wine tasting (Felsina just 3 minutes away) lunch. This is a combination convenience store , deli, bar, takeway and has a few tables outside and inside. We were the only tourists. Everyone else was local and most appeared to be on lunch break from work. The menu does not have strict English translations but the waiter was very helpful.... More

You could easily be fooled, walking into the Taverna which in the front is a small bar and smoke shop. Do not let this turn you off. We went for dinner based on a local recommendation and what a treat. From the great service to the fresh and delicious food, to the very reasonable prices, the 6 of us were... More

I have been coming here since 2001 and it has been a perennial favorite of my friends and family. Great Tuscan specialties in all categories. A warm and friendly place.

OK.... there have been some moderately complementary reviews on this restaurant. But this was our best experience of authentic Italian Tuscan cuisine. From walking through the modest "grocery store" to get to the table to the non-translated menu this place is simply awesome. We ate at several restaurants in the Tuscany area and we have our fondest memories from this... More

Just recently been to Taverna della Berardenga, after a few months that I hand't been there. They have a great revamped menu, and the place's ambience has had a great upgrade. Definitely recommend it for easy Tuscan "home made" type meals, great taste and good prices.

Our hosts recommend this restaurant to us. We went there and the food was good with reasonable price. the rabbit was good, the other are okay. They don't have English menu as the menu changed daily but they have the translation and you need to match it with daily menu.

Excellent food. Awesome location. Friendly and economic. Good local food served in a warm typical trattoria. Fun to blend in with locals and tourists from all over the world. Girl at the bar is nice and very helpful. Will do again soon.

You walk in through a little grocery / convenience store. Sit down to an unpretentious, authentic experience. Nice and comfortable, good food, doesn't pretend to be anything it isn't. Good service. Truly enjoyable experience.

Very homey and local restaurant. The communication in English was not the greatest, but we managed. We shared wonderful porcini salad, a nice pasta and some meat. Very Chiantese!

La Taverna della Berardenga nasce nel 1986 come bar e tabacchi, l'anno successivo si amplia e diventa anche ristorante. Adriana Dragoni, che gestisce questa tipica osteria chiantigiana fin dalla nascita, tratta i clienti come ospiti nella propria casa. Il menù e la carta dei vini sono fortemente legati al territorio, con pasta e dolci fatti in casa tutti i giorni. Il menù cambia due volte al giorno, da pranzo a cena, in base ai prodotti che nel mercato sono più freschi. Piatto forte della Taverna è l'Anatra al forno (ottima anche come sugo per condire i Pici fatti in casa). Da non perdere il Fritto Misto alla Taverna con carni bianche e verdure miste. Immancabile nella cucina chiantigiana è la carne di vitello che qui potrete mangiare cotta alla brace, con la classica fiorentina, la tagliata, e al forno. Funghi, tartufi e verdure di stagione trovano sempre spazio nel menù.La carta dei vini è improntata per la maggior parte su vini del territorio con una selezione di ottimi Chianti Classico D.O.C.G., che fanno scoprire le varie sfumature del Sangiovese chiantigiano.La Taverna ha due sale e dispone di circa 50 coperti, in estate è dotata anche di 15 posti all'esterno.
