Description: "Il vero viaggio di scoperta non consiste nel cercare nuove terre, ma nell'avere nuovi occhi." Da questa intima convinzione nasce il nostro viaggio di ricerca nei sapori del passato, rivisitati con gusto e delicatezza. Osteria del Castagno è il rifugio del viandante e il focolare del commensale, ristoro del corpo e armonia del palato. Immersa nella bellezza naturale delle colline toscane e baciata dal tepore del sole mediterraneo, Osteria del Castagno è la raffinata guida alla scoperta dei piaceri della rinomata cucina italiana. La semplicità delle prelibatezze del passato. Il prestigio dei suoi ricercati arredi, che diventano involucro per la nostra memoria, autentica e duratura, la ricercatezza delle stoviglie diventano il nido accogliente degli oggetti a noi più cari, come corredo perfetto per continuare a viaggiare nel tempo, avvolti dal profumo del pane appena sfornato e nella delicata compostezza di un calice di vino.

The restaraunt is mainly open air tables with a smaller bar and shop area inside. There is plenty of room to sit out (under cover) and plenty of parking. The atmosphere is great. The menu is fairly limited to pizza but they are lovely, a great price and there is takeaway available. Call in - you won't be disappointed!

Off the beaten track....but great for a panini or something a bit more serious like pasta /venison and numerous other local dishes.Very inexpensive/good value They have a deli section-so you can buy cheese/mortadella/prosciutto etc to take away. Also bring in your bottle and they will fill it with vino from the tap for a couple of euros....can't beat that

Eaten here twice on this holiday and the food has been great each time. Most authentic pizza's in Tuscany. Good service, vibrant atmosphere, and great local wines though you can't beat the local prosecco at 8 euro per litre. Fantastic buffet also available.

This restaurant/bar/pizzeria is on the road from San Gimignano to Gambassi Terme (where nobody goes). But it is close to the turnoff for Volterra, so take the short detour. We have eaten here annually for over 6 years. It is a family-run place, with Stefano in charge in the seating area and Ilaria in the kitchen cracking the whip. Daughter Marta (born 1999?) helps out sometimes. A great antipasto bar precedes dinner, which is also when the pizza oven is fired up. But for lunch and dinner both there is a full menu of Tuscan specialties. The bistecca fiorentina is amazing, but you better like your steak rare. Being out of the tourist traps the prices are very good. Good selection of local chiantis and other wines. A large covered outdoor seating area is available in good weather. You'll love it!
