Being our first thorough visit to Tuscany we were very much in doubt where to dine and wine and hence asked the owner of our lovely agriturismo (Podere Patrignone by Castellina) for advice as we were looking for authentic Tuscan food and ambiance away from the mainstream tourist areas. His immediate recommendation was Ristorante al Macereto. He was convinced that... More

We discovered Ristorante Al Macereto on our last night, which was such a shame. The menu is great and one of the best ante pasto platters we had. We travelled with our two sons, 12 months old and almost 3 years old, and was so happy (as was he) that there were so many toys for him to play with... More

If you live in the Chianti you surely appreciate the good meat an the good wine but the usual trattoria can be a bit boring. We love this restaurant because it has an amazing park so it is quite and green. Beautiful outside and very original and romantic if you eat inside. Food is great, we liked the meat and... More

We had a delicious dinner, perfectly cooked. You'll find all the best tuscany receipes but also some innovatives and nice bites all along the meal. The owner offered some "fried anchoives&sage bites" (absolutely amazing), an ice cream scoop in the middle of the meal (between primi plati and secondi plati). Finally service was excellent... And it was very fun to... More

Hidden in the hills of Toscany, protected with the cyprus trees, offering the best sunset experience. We had excelent service by the owner Wynn, preparing also delicius tiramisu. Our lemon pasta made from home lemons were just excelent! Highly recommended! :-))

Wynn is an exceptional host, and a great guy. I brought my wife and a group of friends here to celebrate our 10yr wedding anniversary, and we weren't disappointed. Then again, Wynn never disappoints. Spectacular food, great wines, lovely ambience, and a generous host. What could be better? P.S. Al Macereto is somewhat out of the way, so be sure... More

We ate here one evening while we were staying in Castellina in Chianti, and really wished we'd had time to go back! ( which is really saying something as there are so many great options in the area). We are foodies and pretty discriminating- everything about this place was spot-on: excellent service, personal visit from the owner, fantastic food and... More

Wow! Where do you start! Fantastic owners, amazing food and wine and a lovely setting. The best meat and appetisers in the whole of Tuscany. The desserts are made by the owner you must order one! It truly is a lovely restaurant, I go every year and it is still the best restaurant I have been to in Tuscany!!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our vineyard stay hosts Franco & Sonia from Il Bacio, described as a restaurant with affordable, high quality and tasty Tuscan style food. We had been booked in by our hosts and warmly greeted by the owner Wynn. The restaurant is beautiful with fantastic views. We received a small glass of champagne and... More
