We had a great meal here. It was so good, we came back again! The dining room was small, cosy, intimate. Nicely decorated too. Of the food I sampled, I particularly liked the bruschetta selection as a starter. Some really good flavours. The pasta dishes were very good too, and because we dined as quite a large group, I was able to sample most of them. The cheesy pasta was particularly scrumptious. For the main course, the rich beef slow cooked for a long time was very good. The sauce was dark and very reduced, full of flavour. The staff were very nice. Helpful, polite and attentive. We thought they might have been family, and related. This suggestion caused much hilarity!

After traveling most of the day from 5 Terre we arrived in Castelmuzio tired and hungry. Isabella recommended this restaurant and we gladly accepted. As we entered the wrong side the staff showed us the way upstairs where our table was prepared. Two friendly young Italian girls helped us through the dinner, making our time lively, fun and interesting. The house red wine was the best I've had in Italy, a great local red. The antipasto of cheese was absolutely wonderful as was the pasta dishes, one with truffles and the other cheese. It may have been the best, freshest pasta I've ever had in a restaurant. Sliced beef followed by dessert completed our wonderful meal in this small town and restaurant. Highly recommend.

I wanted to start our Tuscan holiday with something special, and the rooftop breakfast at Locanda di CasalMustia was a perfect choice. Yes, a bit pricey for breakfast, but the views of the surrounding countryside and rooftops of Castelmuzio were stunning, and the novelty of dining on a private rooftop terrace was a memorable experience. The staff at the Locanda are WONDERFUL and extremely friendly, beginning with the responses to my emailed questions, and ending with exceptional service for the meal. The breakfast was a complete spread: cereals, juices, fresh fruit, fresh pastries, meats and cheeses, yogurts, cappuccinos, etc. (Even more impressive is the fact that the cappuccinos are made at ground level, and then carried up three stairways and two ladders before arriving at the rooftop terrace.) I would imagine that a rooftop dinner would be similarly magical for special occasions. Highly recommended.

I see that most people were pleased with this restaurant. Unfortunately, our experience was totally different:
- service was very slow, inattentive, although the restaurant was half empty (took a lot of time to bring us the menus, brought us the wine, but forgot the glasses, then brought the glasses but forgot to fill them, waited for the bill for 30 minutes although there were only 3 tables occupied in that moment and 3 waiters, and so on)
- very poor english
- pork steak very very salted
- worst pasta in our 4 days in Tuscany

We arrived late into Petroio and relied on our hotel's suggestion to drop by for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised by this establishment in the middle of a quiet village. The staff extended a warm welcome, one of whom spoke English to our relief. The home made pasta was delicious, as were the grilled pork and beef. The staff were also kind enough to help us make a few calls as our cellphones had no reception in the area. If you are in the vicinity, this is a true oasis.
