Location and contact

The restaurant "Taverna Squarcialupi" is situated in Via Ferruccio, in the main street of the historical centre of Castellina in Chianti. Inside, there are two spacious and carefully decorated rooms with a beautiful open-plan kitchen and in the warm weather our dishes can be served on our splendid panoramic terrace, set within the medieval walls. The view on the surrounding hills, from this point, is simply breathtaking. The menu characterizes the typical Tuscan Cooking, with fresh home-made pasta and rigorously Chianina Beef only but you shall also find original and innovating reinterpretations of the traditional recipes which would satisfy even the most refined palate.

Taverna Squarcialupi is the restaurant for the hotel where we stayed, and guests receive a discount on both restaurant food and wine and food purchases. Food and service was good. House wine was so good and reasonably priced that we bought some.

We were staying in a house near Castellina and decided to stop and see the downtown area. They have parking nearby and the main part of town is blocked off from auto traffic so it makes a nice walking area. We decided to try Squarcialupi...More

Had the most delicious Florentine steak here, cooked perfectly and so tender. Ate it with the grilled vegetables. The service was great, would not hesitate to recommend a visit.

As Americans we were ready to eat at 6:30 after a long day of wine tasting. Although they did not officially open until 7 PM, we ordered our meals 30 minutes early and\ they were fantastic. The pasta was creamy and the veal was excellent!...More
