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.

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.
