Had a nice couple plates of pasta and the charcuterie we had was good too. Bread was a little stale though. Had a great bottle of Brunello to go with our dinner. Fireplace in the middle of the dining room was a nice touch too!

Outstanding food. I had the steak and bruschetta, both were fantastic. Service was good despite the reviews. I was more impressed with their cheaper wines than their cru(for the price anyway).

Description
Already fifty years ago there were a great many visitors to the Fattoria dei Barbi, and many of them asked to be able to accompany their tasting of Brunello with a taste of cured meats and cheeses, maybe even with some roasts typical of the area or a plate of hand-rolled pinci. Thus the Taverna was created, where visitors could rest after a tour of the cellars and taste the dishes characteristic of Montalcino. After more than half a century, the Taverna dei Barbi still follows the same tradition. At the tables set outside or around the big fireplace that dominates the main dining room, diners can taste the dishes typical of the Tuscan tradition and of Montalcino in particular, prepared as they have always been but also with a touch of modernity, while always respecting the flavors of a time gone by. Homemade pasta, sauces, soups and meats accompanied by Fattoria dei Barbi wines enable visitors to live a unique experience and to enjoy the luxury of Tuscan simplicity.
