Excellent place. A little difficult to get to but worth it. The food was delicious. We opted for the a la carte as we are not big eaters. Service superb. Great bottle of red wine. Took the wine tour afterwards.

Some say you can't go back but Banfi only gets better each time we go. The food is delicious and creative. It is in my opinion one of the best restaurants in Italy. BTW, the Banfi wine is also great.

Without a doubt the most incredible food and service. Had a 5 course meal that is positively the best. Always a treat to visit and when we travel to Italy which is often we make sure to visit Banfi.

Thank you very much for your feedback and we are sorry if we did not exceed your expectations. We agree that to have twice beef in a 3 course lunch is not a good solution and we have already discussed with our kitchen team. Please...More

The whole experience was outstanding. We did a lunch with winery tour. The drive to the winery allows you to have a sense of the estate and the unbelievable views. You will be welcomed with an aperitivo at the enoteca and then invites to the...More

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.

Had an enjoyable lunch at this restaurant. Went for the a la carte menu (which you have to ask for as they try to get you to go for the tasting menu). Scallops to start were cooked well and the pinci with wild boar ragu...More

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.
