Il Cantinale is the farmhouse restaurant of Fattoria Castello di Monteriggioni. We are open from 11 to 22. The Cantinale is the ideal place to savor the tastes and flavors of Tuscan cuisine. Lunch, snack, salami, cheese, dinner, wine tasting.
Well first of all, I must say that the restaurant is new. So everthing inside looks great and the bathroom is also very nicely decorated and layed out. Spacious parking spaces inside di property where the winery is also.The staff delightfully hosts you to your table and will accompany you throughout your tasteful journey.There's a nice silence in the atmosphere which won't distract the perceptions of the plates you're eating, but some nice background music would be appreciated.The dishes my wife and I tasted were extremely delicious, elegantly presented with no taste out of tune. Not too salty, not too greasy...perfect equilibrium. Maybe anonymous? Depends.The cruncy panzanella is quite unique along with their unique cheesecake.A cheesecake with no crust beneath but a delicious crumble over the top. Very nice!Curiosity killed the cat, so we'll definitely be back to taste rest of the menu.Price-wise, I must admit that it is very competitive. Well done!!Goodmorning Roberto, thanks a lot for your fantastic review!!!We are so happy that you enjoy our restaurant, and our idea of kitchen!!!See you soon at Cantinale!!!

Chef Enrico Orlandini (son of Marcello),Marcello is a poet as well as archivist of traditional Tuscan cuisine. He has written a Tuscan cookbook in the old tradition. The restaurant is small but the food fresh and authentic and iris inexpensive.
It is certainly worth while to reserve a table for an evening meal.Food was very good, weâve eaten 'fiorentina'. Slightly expensive wine. Charming wall decoration made by guests from all over a world - gives you an idea of lasting impression. I recommend.

True Tuscan cuisine, choice meats of beef, chicken, pork, wild boar. Typical Italian and Tuscan pasta, salami and cheese, Chianti Classico wines
After reading the positive reviews, we were all expecting something better. To start with, the place was cold and two of us ate with the jacket on.A waiter gave us an apologetic look but did not increase the heating.My "Pici con cacio e pepe" were average, portion was small.

Restaurant, wine tour and tasting, wine shop. Wine shop, Tour and Tasting are available every day, except on Wednesday, from 10 am to 6 pm The Restaurant is open for Lunch form 12.30 to 2.30 pm and for Dinner from 19.30 to 21.15 (last reservation)
The setting alone will take your breath away. The quintessential Tuscan vineyard with views in every direction. But then you enter the dining room where you are warmly welcomed by an attentive staff.The menu is small but with something for everyone. We started with the baccala bruschetta and a salad mista. Both were excellent but there is something about the freshness of the salad greens and their presentation that wowed me. Or maybe it was the addition of their locally produced olive oil. Either or, both appetizers were scrumptious. My husband then ordered the boar steak and I the tagliterini with truffle sauce, each rich in flavor in its own way but again home runs. We finished with the ricotta mouse, which was to die for. And if you are into wines their selection is top notch but the prices are reasonable.Al in all from the staff to the menu and quality of food our night was perfect and we highly recommend a lovely evening at Foresteria.

We stumbled upon il Ciliegio when looking for another agriturismo. It was about 2:30pm and we were worried that we wouldn't be able to find a place to eat, but the four of us were able to sit and eat. I believe that the whole meal was â¬26/person and included water, wine, meats & cheese, bread, pasta, meat and salad, and dessert along with after dinner coffee and liquers. My personal favorites were the pasta and the cheese and honey. The staff was also quite friendly, even though we just dropped in. I believe that there is also an a la carte menu, but this was perfect for us. I would definitely return if we were in the area again.

Superb antipasti selection of meats and cheeses. This was followed by home made pasta with wild boar. Wonderful! All was washed down with house red and sparkling and still water. The dessert was a superb Grandmotherâs Cake.A very enjoyable experience.

Hotel Casalta is a small hotel carved out of a Longobarda fortress in the heart of Strove, a community of Monteriggioni which is a city famous not only for its perfectly preserved beauty but also for its importance as a point of passage for the pilgrims o
Lunch on Saturday and dinner on Sunday. Porcini Season, so specials all involved fungi. Great service. Nice wine recommendations from wineries @ 0 km. Beef was terrific as well as the cod with lightly breaded, almost tempura veggies. The service could not have been more pleasant. A well tempered evening for dinner. Definitely recommended for a lovely evening or a lunch.

Once you enter this little bottega, you feel a warm welcome of an almost 80 year old family-run restaurant...Set just next to the beautiful vineyards of the southern chianti classico area (Lornano) you will experience delicious food (all picks from the menu are great (we have been here twice for dinner; once for lunch, and were never disappointed ) and -of course- great wines (we took the house wine: the produce their own wine). Please do not forget order a dessert...they are soooooo good!!PS. if you have the time before sunset, have a walk around the area (go behind the restaurant to start the walk) through the vineyards (approx 3km walk)What a nice pleasure to read those kind words. As i said the first time that you came, For us and our job, there's nothing better of meeting people that understand what you are trying to do with you daily work. We all are so happy to have had tha chance to meet you and your nice family! I hope to see you next years!Say hello to your kids! have a nice dayLorenzo, Bottega di Lornano

Si avverte la nostra gentile clientela che il ristorante riaprirÃ il giorno 26 Dicembre un ringraziamento da parte di tutti noi a coloro che sono venuti a trovarci in questa stagione lavorativa e che non ci anno mai fatto mancare il loro sostegno
Ate here with friends on a walking trip. It was recommended by tour organisers and certainly didnât disappoint. We had a fantastic meal, and excellent wine in a relaxed atmosphere. Monteriggioni is very small, but busy because itâs so beautiful and historic. So they are having to cater for a very mixed clientele. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Thanks â¤ï¸ Mille grazie eâ sempre un piacere grande vedervi tutti felici! Alla prossima tappa con simpatia Fabrizio
