Description: The restaurant "Taverna Squarcialupi" is situated in Via Ferruccio, in the main street of the historical centre of Castellina in Chianti. Inside, there are two spacious and carefully decorated rooms with a beautiful open-plan kitchen and in the warm weather our dishes can be served on our splendid panoramic terrace, set within the medieval walls. The view on the surrounding hills, from this point, is simply breathtaking. The menu characterizes the typical Tuscan Cooking, with fresh home-made pasta and rigorously Chianina Beef only but you shall also find original and innovating reinterpretations of the traditional recipes which would satisfy even the most refined palate.

We stumbled in here by chance while in Castellina in Chianti and were seated on their outside patio. So glad we ate here! The food was superb and the view is amazing!! We had their homemade pici pasta with ragu and their wild boar in bitter chocolate sauce. Both were absolutely delicious. Best restaurant we ate at in the Tuscan Countryside!

Opened in April 2014, we discovered this excellent new restaurant in July 2015 and couldn't wait to come back in 2016. On the main walkway in town, we viewed the menu outside before entering. The menu is varied with special dishes usually found in more expensive restaurants. The service, linens, and food presentation is tops! The food is outstanding! It was like gourmet Tuscan! We recommend the fried zucchini flowers with goat cheese, smoked dried beef with Gorgonzola fondue sauce and walnuts, and whatever the risotto dish of the day happens to be. We had a table in the back room that was quiet and cool. However, they offered a table on the porch in the back with a view if
you wanted sun. Great desserts also. If you are in the area, make a point to find this welcome addition to Castellina. We will be back in 2017!

Found this gem purely by chance. Presentation of the food was fantastic.
Unfortunately the small terrace with a beautiful view was full so we sat inside but were very well looked after. I had a magnificent risotto in red wine and my wife had a pear salad and chicken dish.

This restaurant ended up being our favorite during our 13 day stay in Tuscany. It's located in the beautiful town of Castellina in Chianti, and we were blown away by the upscale, gourmet food offered at this quaint, yet beautiful little restaurant. We ate here a number of times during our stay, and were treated like family by Mauro and his staff. The food was so delicious! The four of us tried the majority of items on their menu, and all of it was outstanding. Their house brand of wine was also outstanding! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Castellina in Chianti area!
