This was the nicest restaurant we went to in the Chianti region. The service was outstanding and the food delicious. One of our party was quite fussy and the main waiter went out of his way to accommodate her! I wound definitely recommend this place to anyone going to the region.

We booked this online and benefited from a 30% discount. The location was beautiful and the service could not have been better. The personal service is second to none and the food was fresh from their grounds and so very delicious. We are going back in September and plan to go back again.

had dinner at Il Celliere. The building is a beautiful stone Tuscan building. I started with caprese salad, the fresh mozzarella was outstanding. My wife started with a warm cheese and egg item that was a nice way to start on a cool evening. For next course we shared an order of mushroom risotto that was full of flavor. For... More

The wait person who is also the owner knows what is fresh and recommends accordingly. What really stood out for me was the sugared fruit with pork, it almost made me cry it was so good! Thank you to Mqx and his amazing chef!

Along with my wife and 3 yr old daughter, I had the pleasure of dining here for an amazing evening. Forget the fact the setting is in the most inspiring building you could ever imagine. This dreamy restaurant is headed up by Max who is so passionate about fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The food served up in Max's atmospheric restaurant,... More

We are leaving Tuscany for Rome tomorrow, and wanted to find a nice restaurant for our last meal here. We were so happy to have chosen Il Celliere a Castagnoli as the meal, the service and the ambience were excellent. To start, we had a buffalo mozzarella salad from cheese made this morning, an excellent bruschetta platter and a flavourful... More

Booking in advance is bonus as the restaurant was not full. Max is just brilliant. He does everything with a passion. Hand shake at the end tells you he is not faking. Mix of high cousine and feeling like home. Bruschette are big enough for two. Bonus is home wine as well as they have winery in cellar.
