“Charming, pleasant good level and service, lovely view.”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

On the corner of the road from the valley there is a restaurant with a fantastic view on the little mountain across the valley. Tables are inside and outside. The kitchen is vibrantly hot but what comes out of there is always very, very tasty.
The service is casual, during summer, maybe a little in the hurry, but much more relaxed in the springtime or during autumn.
The winelist could be more extensive, but matches the food properly.
The owner would need a bigger smile on his face, but generally it really is worth it to climb the road.

“A Sunday in the Chianti vineyards....”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

Very nice spot with amazing scenery around and delicious Tuscan food !!
I especially liked the dessert : Vino Santo with chocolate-almonds-hazelnuts Cantucci to dip in.
Since it was fungi porcini season, they brought a huge basket with these fresh mushrooms to choose from !! Huge !

“Excellent! Well worth finding....”
Reviewed 20 August 2011

We had great difficulty finding this restaurant but after an hour of hunting and getting lost it was well worth the trip. Very nice setting and excellent service and the food was absolutely wonderful! I enjoyed my first taste of boar by having the Pappardelle al sugo di cinghiale (Tuscan dish with wide noodles which of course were homemade with a red sauce of wild boar. It was outstanding!!! After this meal I ordered boar sauce everywhere for the next two weeks, however, all were a bit of disappointment after this meal. Our only disappointment was in the cheesecake; I should have tried another dessert instead. IF only closer to Castellini we would have come each day... Will definitely come back!

“What not to love!”
Reviewed 11 August 2011

By accident we drove by one day and went back another time. What a delight!

On a cloudy Monday we decided to go back to our find, Osteria alla Piazza for lunch. Even though we had many good experiences eating out in Italy we think this is on a different level.

The terrace is really lovely with great views. We were there for lunch and can only imagine how romantic this would be at night. I looked inside when going to the restrooms (which were proper and clean) and also the restaurant looked lovely.

There were not so many others tables occupied for lunch and sometimes that is when the service fails. Not here; the waiter was a professional; attentive and friendly! The food was delicious and made with loving care. Price level is average. Good choice of wines in every price range.

You can really feel the people who work here love what they are doing. We would certainly go back when we are in Italy and also recommend this restaurant to others.

“wonderful romatantic meal”
Reviewed 22 January 2011

We ate dinner here in June of 2010, based on some friends recomendations. We were not disappointed. The food, wine, and ambience were wonderful; and the prices were very good.

Dining on the outside patio provided us with a wonderful view, and when evening came, we were treated with a romantic setting.
