We went for dinner. It's a restaurant in the tiny mountain town of Castiglione. We entered at 7.30 and we're the only guests, but sure enough, locals and other tourists entered later. The food was delicious...we had help from our host to decipher the menu....and with his help, chose well. Specialties of Tuscan cuisine, feggata (pig's liver), pork with figs,... More

We were visiting Castiglione d"Orcia for several hours and walked by this Osteria. Glancing at the hand written menu we decided to go in and have lunch. Massimo was welcoming as we perused the menu and answered our questions. We had a wonderful meal and afterwards we met his delightful wife Melfi, who is also the chef. We were so... More

Tonight we had an enjoyable dinner of gnocchi with meat ragu then a beautiful steak each with rocket and a cauliflower/pea mixture. Finished it with a strawberry tart and washed down with a local Orcia Sangiovese. Good food and service and recommend

Staying in one of the agriturismo around Castiglione D'Orcia, hungry for lunch we found this place. Very easy to miss! We weren't disappointed. Great food, service. Comfortable outdoor seating. Since restaurant is placed close to the street, it can get a little bit noisy.

A useful pit stop in the charming town of Castiglione if you are touring the area. We chose to sit at one of the outside tables in the small area outside the osteria. There is no view and it is on what passes for the main road through the village, but it is screened from the worst of the traffic.... More

We really enjoyed Massimo and Melfi's place. They are very gracious hosts who serve excellent local dishes made from fresh ingredients. The wine list was surprisingly good for a small place in a small village. We have eaten there twice and will return again before we leave Tuscany.

Superb restaurant, the food was really excellent, not cheap but a such good quality. The choice was not huge because they have a different menu each day, depending on what is fresh and in season, and what they feel like cooking! Lovely small outdoor area and the inside is very stylish. Run by a young couple who are obviously very... More
