Reviewed 6 April 2018

Does Tuscany have a nicer restaurant than this? It is in wonderful surroundings. The food is simple and very good. the bill is small. The owners are delightful. The village has 28 inhabitants and is not a tourist destination. You are only a short drive from Montalcino but it feels like a million miles away. We will remember this meal and our evening in the restaurant all year if not longer.Thank you for making such a wonderful restaurant in such a place.

The food was spot on with the attention detail. Family run and everyone made us feel welcome. As if we were eating at their home. I had the Scottiglia and my wife had the lemon chicken. It was all done perfectly. The menu is nice and short. I am always suspect when the menu reads like a encyclopedia. Shows the ingredients will be fresh and made to order. We went on a Sunday evening during a local festival. The restaurant only had a few people. That made it better. I would definitely return. It was a wonderful experience.

From the moment we arrived, the handshakes that greeted us, authentic smiles and showing us to our table "that was ours all night", the evening only got better. To speak of the food, a delicious fusion of pure Tuscan ingredients prepared by the hands of a Roman cook, accompanied by the stories of the local producers where everything is sourced. The location is a magical, tiny covered terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills - the perfect spot for a romantic sunset - with Castello Banfi off in the distance. The tiny hamlet of Camgiliano is home to just 24 close neighbors, half of whom will make their way to the Galletto for a glass of wine or aperitif by the end of the night.

As with any traditional Italian meal, after the first few courses, conversation takes over and the rest of the meal just slows down. By the end of it, our table had grown to accommodate the owners Massimo and Antonella, their son and several other residents, just chatting about food, life, and good times. It was so much more than a meal, but that in and of itself is enough to return.

Ci vediamo presto!

We had an absolute wonderful lunch with a breathtaking view. Family owned business. Friendly family. Brunello wine fantastic and homemade grappa was a winner.
