"Il vero viaggio di scoperta non consiste nel cercare nuove terre, ma nell'avere nuovi occhi." Da questa intima convinzione nasce il nostro viaggio di ricerca nei sapori del passato, rivisitati con gusto e delicatezza. Osteria del Castagno è il rifugio del viandante e il focolare del commensale, ristoro del corpo e armonia del palato. Immersa nella bellezza naturale delle colline toscane e baciata dal tepore del sole mediterraneo, Osteria del Castagno è la raffinata guida alla scoperta dei piaceri della rinomata cucina italiana. La semplicità delle prelibatezze del passato. Il prestigio dei suoi ricercati arredi, che diventano involucro per la nostra memoria, autentica e duratura, la ricercatezza delle stoviglie diventano il nido accogliente degli oggetti a noi più cari, come corredo perfetto per continuare a viaggiare nel tempo, avvolti dal profumo del pane appena sfornato e nella delicata compostezza di un calice di vino.
One of the best Ristorants in Tuscany.
I was there 8 years ago and a pleasant memory has made me come back to this place few days ago...my expectations have been greatly exceeded.
The place has been redecorated with exquisite taste and the typical cuisine of the area is exceptional.
I'm sure we'll be back from Barcelona more times

We visited Montaione for dinners and food shopping, and Carpe Diem was the best of some really great places in town. We were seated at a lovely corner table, and the service and food was the best. From the wine to the pasta first course, to perfectly cooked twin tournedos I enjoyed or the perfect tuna for my wife, and the unbelievable tiramisu dessert, this was a 2 1/2 hour delight. Our waiters and staff ( perhaps brother and sister?) were so enjoyable, and did great despite our language differences. Unobtrusive while being totally attentive, perfectly paced and prepared...we savored every bite and minute, and hated to leave except that we were done! Be sure to try this place for dinner, and I'm sure the views during the day must add even more to the experience.

We visited La Montagnola quite a few times in the past 12 months due to our wedding preparations in Italy.
Whenever we came, our evening dinner has been truly delicious and such fun. The staff, especially the young owner of the restaurant, are super friendly, love to chat with their guests and are interested in their stories. The mother of the owner and his girlfriend are in charge of the kitchen and create wonderful and true Italian dishes. Even if you got an extra special wish, they are happy to please you. For example: I only like Gambaretti (a lot of them!) with pasta and not with mussels and squid like in the dish written on the menu. No problem for La Montagnola! First time I asked for this special, the mother of the owner even came to our table to ask if everything is fine and I am happy with my food. Truly amazing service! Last time we visited during a big thunderstorm where even the lights in whole Gambassi turned off for 10 minutes. The staff stayed calm, took care of everything and as soon as the lights turned back on we got served our dinner without anything to complain about. Just perfect!
So, what we can truly recommend are the Antipasto Misto plates - big and diverse!
Also, the fried vegetable are great - crispy and so rich in taste (not what you would first imagine when it comes to fried anything).
My husband loves the Tagliata di Manzo which comes in 3 different versions. And for me, like a said, Pasta with Gambaretti!
Also the pizza is very good and big!
Prices are moderate and truly fit the quality of food and service.
I can only recommend this place from my heart. We have been there a few times from August 2015 to September 2016 and never been disappointed.
Only thing: as La Montagnola is quite popular and well known in Gambassi, I would book a table beforehand

Our hotel recommended this place and we weren't disappointed. Lot's of choices on the menu. Their steak Florentine was delicious. The owner is a very happy and social guy. He plays 50's and 60's music in the background which sounded terrific. The price was very reasonable, the food was excellent, the service was prompt and I can't think of any reason why you wouldn't give it a try.

How can we begin to explain this fabulous restaurant with the most amazing Host Chiara and her wonderful staff....from exquisite Tuscan delicacies to gracious service you cannot go wrong. Many times I have looked forward to going to places I have studied on reviews, blogs etc and have been let down. It is unbelievably welcoming to not be let down and have my expectations met above and beyond. Please dine here you will not regret it...foreigners and locals alike eat at Ristorante Latini .....that should say it all.
Our heart felt thank you to Chiara and her entire staff.

The menu is vast, meeting all the dietary requirements that we needed!
This is a great, local restaurant that served high quality food. There is an enormous range of food on offer and the choice was much appreciated by all our party.
The location is excellent, set in this old town that is full of character. Although sitting is mostly inside, there are glimpses of the fantastic views outside across the valley. The atmosphere was informal and local and gave a real insight into the local, but discerning, community.
Overall, certainly worth a worth for a splendid dinner.

Glad I booked a table for our Saturday evening dinner in advance, because the place became absolutely packed, mostly with locals, which quite impacted the speed of service (or lack thereof).
We started with an extensive antipasto for two, a big plank full of local goodies, followed by grilled pork tenderloin pieces wrapped in bacon on a skewer with interesting veggies. Very nice food.
Unfortunately we had a long wait for the accompanying wine - the young waitress apologised later for complete forgetting our wine order.

Place was very full, but they organized table within 20 minutes. Staff was very friendly and nice, joking and really taking care of each guest.
Pizza was very thin, was good.
Zuppetta and caprese were ok, but we had so much better during the trip. Choice of wine was very good.
Place is large and full of noisy tourists, maybe reducing by some tables would help.
If not staying for long in Montaione there are just better choices. If going for pizza only we would return as one is treated well - service-wise and cost-wise.

We were looking for something small, intimate and very local. You know family run and not touristy. This place is a gem. Without doubt the best meal during our seven day stay in this area (San Gimignano and Certaldo). The onion soup was to die...MoreThanks Giampiero and mom will say hello, thank you for your words have happiness for our work,Your family group is a beautiful reminder of smiles??⭐️ Giampiero Niccolini

traditional Tuscan cuisine
We ate here for lunch. We had a lovely little table outside at the top of the hill. The service was great, and the food was delicious. I got pasta with pecorino, pancetta and truffles...yummy! My husband got Pasta with sausage, truffles and mushrooms. We also had a little appetizer of meats. It was all really good.
