Each time we are in Val D'Orcia we always stop here for lunch. A great restaurant in a beautiful setting in a beautiful Tuscan hilltop.

We tried the house antipasti plate. The prosciutto, salami, cheese and melone were splended. For maincourse we tasted beef and pollo marinated in grappa. The grappa dominated pollo too much but the beef was okey. For child the pasta was littlebit too spicy. For dessert we had applepie and vanilla and chocolate icecream. One herb present in every main course... More

After an uphill hike, we found this trattoria hidden in this small hilltop town. The quality of food and service were excellent. The owner (chef) provided a great menu with local wine.

What a surprise the whole day was, but this was a highlight. We climbed around Castiglione first, so we got hungry. We went in early and found the host/owner/chef/server still easting lunch, so we waited. He put us at a shady table outside and when he was ready, he helped us order - everything was wonderfully tasty - and talked... More

Il Cassero indeed offers the kind of dining experience most travelers hope for but few find. Great with the local fresh seasoning. Just like one of the other travellers I recommend it with some reservation, because I like to keep out-of-the-way places like this to myself. However, I so enjoy the proprietor and his family that I'll do what I... More

The food at this Trattoria was a level above any other we visited over two weeks in Tuscany. The pasta in particular was excellent. I tried a local craft ale which, while hugely overpriced, was really quite special. The chef and maitre d managed a good double act that kept everyone amused throughout too. All in all a great meal.... More

Fantastisch place to have lunch. Although we arrived late, the chef welcomed us most friendly and we were served a perfect lunch and an excellent wine (Il Primo, Orcia).

Really nice Very friendly owner/chef/waiter. Altough my Italian is not very good and neither was his other languages communication went fine. He seems to be passionate about food and if you taste his meals you understand why. Really good food and a very enjoyable evening
