Can't seem to miss with restaurants in Castellina. This one has good food, good ambience and good service. 2 dishes that stood out were the filet of beef and the veal cheeks. Pastas were all good. No complaints.

We turned up over an hour late. Maitre d' could not have been more helpful. Lovely meal, one of us made a poor choice and didn't like his main course. A trip down to visit the cellars afterwards was extremely interesting.

The restaurant "Taverna Squarcialupi" is situated in Via Ferruccio, in the main street of the historical centre of Castellina in Chianti. Inside, there are two spacious and carefully decorated rooms with a beautiful open-plan kitchen and in the warm weather our dishes can be served on our splendid panoramic terrace, set within the medieval walls. The view on the surrounding hills, from this point, is simply breathtaking. The menu characterizes the typical Tuscan Cooking, with fresh home-made pasta and rigorously Chianina Beef only but you shall also find original and innovating reinterpretations of the traditional recipes which would satisfy even the most refined palate.
