We ate here several times and found the food to be excellent and the service friendly. It's a bit out of the way but is a cozy little dining room with outdoor seating in the summer.

Lunch was served in a pleasant high-ceilinged room decorated with tapestries. We had the tasting menu which was paired with Castello Banfi wines. Service was immaculate and the food and wines excellent. Highly recommended.

We just take a look inside and looks very nice. Good for a business meeting or a romantic eavning. The decorations are beautiful. You have a close enter but with view to thyer old bottles in the basement.

We always visit Banfi on trips to Tuscany. Their luncheon menus are wonderful and you are able to taste many wines that are not easy to find here at home. Very enjoyable.

Description
A classical Tuscan restaurant in the shade of our medieval castle of Poggio alleMura. Taverna Banfi, open for lunch, is positioned beneath the vaulted arches of the former barrel cellars of the castle where Brunello once rested in large oak casks. In a very pleasant atmosphere, our menu offers the traditional dishes of Montalcino and Tuscany, enhanced by the freshness and authenticity of local ingredients. To respect the calm of our guests, pets are not allowed.
