“Magnificent opulance”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

We were fortunate enough to stay for our honeymoon at the castello de speltenna which this restaurant is attached to. Amazing dining room in beautiful old castle with impeccable service. Food was fairly pricey but excellent, with a few 'bonus' courses making our dinner a 5 course extravaganza. For a special occasion well worth a visit.

“Beautiful, elegant, and warm dining experience in Chianti”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

This restaurant is part of the lovely Castello di Spaltenna. We dined outside, and it was a wonderful evening. The food and service was top notch and well-paced. My wife and I had delightful pastas. I recommend the duck tortelli. Creative, simple, and rich flavors.

“A gourmand's paradise”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 via mobile

Some 18 years ago when we first visited Chianti, we dined at Il Pievano without staying at theCastello di Spaltenna Hotel. The quality of the food, service, and atmosphere so impressed us that I made a mental note that next time we visit Chianti we must dine at this restaurant again. I am glad to say that now that we have had the chance to revisit after so many years we find the restaurant can only be described in superlative terms. If it should take us another 18 years to visit Chianti, we will be sure to come to Il Pievano again.

“Elegance in Chianti”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

This is the restaurant at Castello di Spaltenna, where we stayed for four nights in Gaiole in Chianti. The surroundings are beautiful, whether service is outside on the courtyard (in fine weather) or inside in the elegant dining rooms. The service, although formal, is friendly and the waiters are very helpful and accommodating. Most of all, the food is world-class up to the standards of the finest Michelin starred restaurants. From the innovative amuse bouche that starts the meal to the fabulous desserts, everything is perfection.
