As with anything at Castello Basnfi, service is at the highest level possible. That should not be construed as meaning the food suffers, quite the opposite. Our lunch at La Taverna was fantastic. The pastas, lamb and beef were as good as I've had anywhere

Description
A classical Tuscan restaurant in the shade of our medieval castle of Poggio alle Mura. 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.
