Enjoy a pleasant food and wine stop in the quiet of the village of Monti in Chianti, a hamlet of Gaiole in Chianti near Siena.
Typical Tuscan cuisine, wild meat and truffle-based dishes.
Difficult to tell the experience that you can live in this place, but we try:
amazing hospitality of the owners who are also the cooks, and who welcome you with sympathy and cordiality to make you feel immediately at ease; timeless environment, made even more surreal by the presence of the splendid Betty, eagle owl, true hostess; menu with truffles, truffles, truffles that the main actor, present in all dishes. From appetizer to main course, all based on truffles. Wonderful with the pig. The house wine is very respected even by the somelliers. Giorgio is the truffle hunter and the piglet (7 hours of cooking) in charge, Mrs. Paola is the wife and the queen of the kitchen, and the son Samuele expert in wine and sparkling prosecco, very recommendable. In short, an unforgettable dinner at the Locanda del Tartufaio is worth trying, under the banner of the genuineness of the products and the skilful and refined experience of the owners. When there is passion for what you do, the result is naturally excellent.
Not to be missed
The cuisine, the setting, the service, everything in this place speaks of simplicity, family and taste. The perfect place to eat and feel good. Do not forget to exchange a few words with the manager, a hardworking, honest and generous man: Giorgio is a certainty for Monti and for those who are passing through. (Pinkellal)

The best restaurant we dined in in 4 days in Chianti! Mr. Giorgio made us feel at home, cute internal garden and spectacular dishes, you won't forget the pig with truffles easily! Maximum attention to all details, from the welcome to the service to, of course, the superb dishes! Compulsory stop if you are in the surrounding area! We hope to visit again soon! Thanks for everything! (Fedeinwonderland)
Our experience at this place was great. The food is sensational, all based on the freshest truffles personally selected by the owner and divinely cooked by his wife. The place is very characteristic with a very romantic courtyard and with the pleasant company of a magnificent owl. The owners are very kind and helped make our experience even more unique. Hope to come back soon! (Rokia)
Fantastic everything. They offered us a set menu based on truffles (suckling pig lasagna appetizers) and wine from their own production. Outstanding, the place has something magical, the staff and owner are lovely people who make you feel at home. I will find a way to go back soon! (Marta Z.)
