Sotto le Volte (site of former al Gallopapa, which was highly recommended but apparently closed in 2009) – Very cool, “romantic’ location under the shops in Castellina’s vaulted medieval walkway, the rooms seemed formerly to have been very old wine cellars, and there is a nice wine bar. Very good, well-prepared dishes; the only knock is that our waiter, who appeared to be one of the owners, seemed to be an unhappy fellow and, as an aside, he cannot make a decent cocktail. With our lunch, another fine Buondonno Chianti Classico. We’d return for the food, but we’d likely check first to see who was serving and at the bar.
