Spent 10 days in Castellina in Chianti and was recommended to go to this restaurant. It was such a wonderful experience. Have travelled the world for the last 40 years and this has to be one of the best eating experiences I have ever had. So good we couldn't get enough of it and visited 4 times in our 10 days and every meal was a revelation. Cannot recommend this place enough. We will certainly be back next year. Make sure you book as their reputation is spreading.

I stayed at Tenuta de Ricavo for three nights and wanted to go someplace close for dinner because of the very curvy roads and great Italian wine. This place was great. I loved the atmosphere, service and food. If you are in the area, check it out!

We stayed about 3 miles away and came to this restaurant based on the Trip Advisor reviews. The food quality is first class even if the service is, at times, a little slow. This is mainly due to only having two staff and the restauarnt being full. We ate there on 19th and 20th September. The mixed Tuscan starter was very good as were the pasta dishesOn the second night, my wife had the Duck with Pistacchio which is highly recommended and I had the Fillet steak which was excellent. The prices are very reasonable given the quality of food and the house red (6Euros for 0.5l) very drinkanble. Would definitely go back but would advise reserving as we watched as many were turned away

Having stayed near Castellina several times, we were not aware of this restaurant which was recommended by the owner of the hotel we stayed in. The menu has a good range of local food and the quality is excellent. Everything is freshly prepared, so the service is not fast, but well worth the wait and the staff are friendly and attentive

The most fantastić in this place is service. The manager ask you every 5 minutes, if everything is OK. Food is good too, but not so good as we expect. The place has familiar athmosphere and resonable price. It's really worth to visit.
