We ate here during our holiday in Italy, and the food was nothing but normal.
We had a mixed entrée (ham, cheese, bruschetta etc), We had ravioli (the inside was cold, as if they had just been taken out from the freezer) and pasta with cherry tomatoes and aubergines, except that the waitress didn't tell us that there was pine nuts in it.
The tiramisu we had as dessert was neither very good.
Moreover we had to ask for a menu, since the waitress (a lady who spoke unpolitly to a your girl working there) just sat down next to us and explain the dishes.
FInally, once we had to pay by credit card, we were asked to go to the office (quite far from the restaurant) since they didn't have a pos on site.
The location itself is very beautiful, but the food ant the customer care are very poor.

I have eaten here once in the Winter for New Year and it was pretty cold.
The New Years Menu was in one sitting so my children were somewhat bored with the long wait for all guests to arrive and the evening to start.
We were also very hungry and the moment definitely passed after waiting so long for each dish.
It is a nice tucked away place and I would recommend a Dinner in the Summer without children to make the most of the location and experience.

There were four of us and we ate 3 meals there. We tried almost every dish and every single one was divine!
We particularly enjoyed the Pappa al pomodoro alla Chiantigiana (tomato and bread soup), Pappardelle al ragu di cinghiale (wild boar pasta), and Pici al cacio and pepe (cheese pasta). Everything was homemade with local ingredient (some of them 0 km).
I am salivating just thinking about them!

We stayed at the hotel and had dinner here for three days.The menu shifted every day and was really well cooked. The desserts (especially the fondant) was very very good. The food is typical for the region and a few of the dishes deserved a 5 star. My only critique would be that it was a tad limited and that, from my perspective, the quality varied a bit. One dish - 5 star. Another 3.

I ate every meal in the restaurant on the premises when I stayed at Borgo Casa al Vento for three nights. Every single dish was fresh and flavorful and delicious. The inside was charming, but since the weather was so perfect, I ate outside on the candlelit patio, which was lovely. Highly recommend!
