Staying at the hotel for 4 nights, we ate here 3 of those nights and were delighted with the dinner menu and food. Anything we ordered was good, flavourful and decent sized portions. We shared the entrees on 2 evenings after realizing that we couldn't finish what we were served. Ambience was decent and service excellent. Wait staff were friendly,... More

The restaurant is quite good. The menu might be a little bit bigger, because after 3 visits I didn't find anything new to try (which doesn't include pork or beef). We've been given samples of foods to try, which were good but unfortunately we didn't find them later in the menu. Local wine - Stebbi - and olive oil are... More

We had dinner twice in the restaurant "L'Orto di Casole", which was tasty and at a reasonable price. The choice was small but good. The ingredients are fresh and of local production. The view over the hills of Tuscany are beautiful. Overall friendly staff.

Only had dinner there one night. Terrible with cold dishes not even al dente. Wine to warm. Breakfast likewise: Not enough staff. Coffee thin and instant, didn't think it was possible to so bad coffee in Italy. The bread was dry and the cut fruit too old. Could use a quality check by Gordon Ramsey.

Travelling with a 10 year old and a 6 year old I worried at first that the restaurant was not very family friendly as most of the other diners were adults and smartly dressed, but once seated we received a warm reception from Roberto who soon put us at ease. The reception provided us with some pens and paper and... More

Even though I loved the hotel Terre di Casole, and I will definitely come back, I would have stayed more nights to have dinner in Orto di Casole if there was more offer of dishes...I found it a little poor. The views, magnificient

Spectaculair view, great location with a nice garden. Food was delicious and so was the wine. Highly recommended! They also sell wine to take with you.

Three words : view, food, service. Having two of them is quite usual in this area of Italy, but all three is not something you find everywhere... If you add a reasonable bill in the mix you'll understand why I loved this place so much! Antipasti and primi are a feast for the eyes, (mouth-wathering fiori di zucca are a... More

We have eaten here several times over the years and always enjoyed our visit. The restaurant is under new management and the menu has changed dramatically. The service was excellent and the food still very good (the fresh ravioli was really good), but I did miss the starter of Tuscan vegetables in Tempura batter - please put it back on... More

Dinner was great in terms of taste although we were no fans of the local specialties... One server was almost rude and did not regard service as bis duty. The other one was very friendly and overall it was great but not 5*!
