Our first meal in Castellina was lunch here and we enjoyed it immensely. Great pasta dishes (including one with a great lamb ragu), handmade, beautifully charred pizzas (with and without tomato sauce, including our favorite, the “Alpino” - mozzarella, porcini mushrooms, and speck), very good meat dishes (lamb, cingiale, beef); everything is really very nice. We particularly enjoyed their beef tartare with and without porcini mushrooms, and one of the best porcini risottos we have ever had. This became our “house restaurant,” as we ate there 4 times over 6 days. We were their “local tourists.” It just seemed comfortable and the food was delicious. Service was friendly, prices perhaps a little high, but overall we really liked it and definitely would return. Enjoyed a number of nice bottles, including 2006 Isole e Elena and Castellare and 2008 Buondonno Chianti Classico.
