After making the trek up to Castagnoli, Max met us in the street (another couple had called him because they could not find the place). We immediately made a connection with him and he felt like an old friend. The food was fabulous and really reflected the simple and wonderful food of the region. Very worthwhile, and Max was great.

What an amazing meal we had last night at Il Celliere a Castagnoli! Truly our best meal to date in Tuscany! And we have been eating well! We were still thinking about our dinner when we went to breakfast at our hotel this morning and recommended Il Celliere to several other hotel guests, one party of four are actually heading... More

This was the worst experience and service I've ever had as a client. I live in Algarve,a touristic region for excellence and I never tought that a person could be treated with so much lack of education and with such rudeness and agressivity as the manager of this place treated us. There is no excuse for such a behavior and... More

I have been meaning to write this review since eating here earlier this year in May with my Fiancé but knew it may take me a while.. We were staying at a B&B nearby whilst we were passing through the Chianti region overnight (Antiche Rime; which was lovely) and were recommended to make a reservation here. Upon arrival we were...

One of the best Italian restaurants in Tuscany. Fresh food, fresh products explained with such a proud by Max. He presents every dish with love.

We were recommended this restaurant by our accommodation. We were not let down by the food at all. It was beautifully presented and tasted divine. Only issue I had was that owner/manager who was waiting on everyone seemed quite rushed as it was a full house. To be fair though this just added to the authentic Italian dining experience and...
