Nice meal, good specialties, but pricy. The only concern has been the cashier when we paied, she did not even look at us, kept talking with another gentlemen, no thank you no nothing, pretty rude.

We stayed in Castellina in Chianti for seven nights and ate here twice. Chicken Liver Pate, Tuscan Mixed Board, Scummy. Grilled Lamb Chops, Roast Mixed Meats, Amazing. Cafe Semi-Freddo, Gorgeous. Would highly recommend it.

Our second visit to Castellina would certainly include La Torre. Great spot at the amazing piazza, excellent food and wine, fast service, friendly staff, lovely place. A must if you are in Chainti and perfect if you are a Bistecca Fiorentina lover.

This is a great place! The staff was friendly, the food was amazing. Try the antipasti platter and the pasta with rabbit ragu is to die for! (get over yourself Bugs)

Not sure but restaurants in Italy have now become more aware of dietary requirements and usually would cater appropriately... A phone call or Internet check of menu might be helpful...Sorry, enjoy!
