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 were staying in a house near Castellina and decided to stop and see the downtown area. They have parking nearby and the main part of town is blocked off from auto traffic so it makes a nice walking area. We decided to try Squarcialupi for lunch. They have a nice outside seating area with a great view. They had a number of good items on the menu. The service was good as well as the food. This is a good place for lunch!

We stopped here for a drink while walking thru Castellini. The restaurant was not open, so we got drinks in the attached wine shop and sat outside. The wine came from an automative dispenser. We were able to try a wine before ordering. Wine pours were not very generous and server was not very friendly. Wine was just okay, nothing special. The wine shop is very nice and prices seemed reasonable. We walked thru the underground wine cellar and tasting rooms. Very nice, impressive setting.

Had the most delicious Florentine steak here, cooked perfectly and so tender. Ate it with the grilled vegetables. The service was great, would not hesitate to recommend a visit.

As Americans we were ready to eat at 6:30 after a long day of wine tasting. Although
they did not officially open until 7 PM, we ordered our meals 30 minutes early and\
they were fantastic. The pasta was creamy and the veal was excellent! We even shared a fine chocolate cake desert.

We dined on their terrace at 7:30. We loved everything: the menu selections, wine list, and the service! This was one of our best dinners in Tuscany! Highly recommend.
