This is one of only two restaurants in Castelfalfi (I don't know why it is listed in Montaione). While La Rocca just opened up as a top nudge restaurant, Il Rosmarino is a place you can go to almost on a daily basis. Prices are very reasonable, yet the food is very good. Pizze (you can choose between two different doughs) is fantastic, as is the meat and the pasta. Starters and deserts are also very good.

It is not excellent (not very innovative or extremely exclusive), but for the prices it is impossible to find another place where you would get nearly as much value! I easily recommend it to everyone. The surrounding views from the Castello are magnificent, by the way...

Dear guest,
our Trattoria is listed in Montaione because Castelfalfi is under its municipality.
We are very pleased that you enjoyed the food and the service of ”Il Rosmarino” , our aim was to create a simple but cosy environment where the guest feels at ease, an ideal place for a quick lunch, an afternoon snack or an informal dinner in our terrace, maintaining a good quality of food and service that I'm glad was appreciated.
In Castelfalfi our guestscan find “Il Rosmarino” with its traditional setting and warm italian hospitality or “La Rocca” with its exclusive fine dining ambience in a beautiful Castle.
In Castelfalfi in fact there is everything to please everyone, we look forward to welcoming you again in the near future,
Best regards,
Elisa Franzini
Restaurant Manager

Simply great food in an amazing surrounding! Thank you very much for your hospitality and the best wild boar ragout, wonderful Tagliata di Manzo, ... Every dish was cooked to perfection. The housewine (and here for us the Chianti) is very tasteful and the home made bread along with the wonderful olive oil is just the perfect companion to a very nice meal. The service is very freindly and professional. Enjoy a great lunch or dinner in beautiful Castelfalfi - Tuscany.

Young innovation is all around Castelfalfi, a remodeled medieval village on a 27 hole golf course out in the countryside a short 30 minute drive from Pisa airport. The restaurant is edible proof of how Italian youth are coming forward and taking charge. The lunch I had there in September was homemade head to toe by chef Francesco and courses were presented in a rustic freshness that was mouthwatering before I even took a bite. My favorite was actually the appetizer, crispy Tuscan focaccia accompanied by three scrumptious spreads. Well, on second thought, maybe my favorite was the tagliata served with a side of boiling olive oil to drizzle. But how can you not love the pasta, three different kinds ?! A digestive walk was called for and Castelfalfi is the perfect spot to stroll on a blissful Tuscan afternoon. Life is good :)

Stayed next door at La Tabaccaia - restaurant has good and varied menu and food is of high standard. Recommend the local wine which is very reasonably priced.

Good food weisse beer very fresh and incredible value and choice for a place in the country. It will certainly suit the clientele of the high claass development that is taking place on the old estate nearby.
