This restaurant is not good, you got feeling the cook is a beginner who learns how to cook. The food seems to be precooked. Never more!!! And the price is really high. The soup of ricotta and spinach was terrible ricotta-water, fish skewer packed in wet flour. Really tasteless.

There is no denying the food was very good and the menu was limited which enriches the freshness and quality of the sourced products. But the portions were very small for the price and you have to pay for bread. Our bill ended up being ridiculous for what we consumed per head. Not impressed and, even though it was quality... More

We went back for a second visit in a week to enjoy the well prepared food in this small cosy rustic restaurant, up under the archways of the "fortress" in Castiglione. The owner and waiter will present you today's menu with passion and insight and help you find something that suits you. Highly recommendable! I had today's catch from the... More

Our visit to Nel Buco was excellent. Valentina and Dario delivered a me that exceeded expectations. Small and personal is what we love in a restaurant. They were quite happy to accept our rambunctious 1 year old son too! The zuppa, pici, and vino were all amazing!

Clearly, we had some of the best food at the Nel Buco. Also the service was outstanding, the waitress explained the daily menu in detail and kindly answered all questions. Nel Buco is a MUST go.

This place in the old town is very small, literally "nel buco" means "in the hole", and nice. Service is very good. Menu is peculiar, this is a good chance to try something different. We were four and ordered 8 courses, everything was very good except my "peposo alla fornacina". I had much better peposo in Tuscany. Price was a... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat in the old town, away from the crowds and the "tourist menus" and took a chance on Nel Buco, which proved to be the culinary highlight of our holiday in Tuscany - as is often the way, we discovered this on our last night so didn't have chance to go back to sample...
