Just had a fantastic dinner in this romantic little restaurant. The food was really tasty and our gorgeous and charming waitress even sang a sweet song for us! Thank you Manuela for this wonderful evening!

This place in the old town is very small, literally "nel buco" means "in the hole", and nice.
Service is very good. Menu is peculiar, this is a good chance to try something different.
We were four and ordered 8 courses, everything was very good except my "peposo alla fornacina". I had much better peposo in Tuscany.
Price was a little higher than average for the area.

We were looking for somewhere to eat in the old town, away from the crowds and the "tourist menus" and took a chance on Nel Buco, which proved to be the culinary highlight of our holiday in Tuscany - as is often the way, we discovered this on our last night so didn't have chance to go back to sample other items on the menu.

We arrived just as the restaurant was opening and they ushered us in and explained we would have to wait a few minutes, but were offered water in the meantime. Rather than being given a menu, each item on the menu was explained in detail by the hostess who then left us for a few minutes to mull over our choice. While the menu choice is not large, each item sounded delicious.

The first and second course were excellent (my wife and I each chose different items but tasted each other's food) and although we weren't hungry we decided on the basis of the previous courses that we would have to have a dessert - these were also very tasty.

Not wanting a whole bottle of wine, we ordered a half litre of the house red, which was also very good and comes from a local producer. Had we had chance, we would have brought a few bottles home with us.

The food is local and home cooked with obvious pride and the service was excellent - if I were in Castiglione again this would be my first choice and I would whole-heartedly recommend Nel Buco.
