Joined my dear friends for dinner here and was delighted to have a new special restaurant in the neighborhood! We were greeted warmly, including a special welcome to our little white Bolognese dogs, and seated at a lovely table in a window alcove. Menu was varied and interesting, with a bit of an elegant flare to a good Tuscan kitchen. Fresh ingredients were presented well, timing of the courses was spot-on, and the owner left you feeling you have joined him for dinner in his home. Castagnoli is a lovely ancient hamlet with a reputable winery, and the local wines are available as are a good selection from the area. Open only for dinner, as I understand, but it is an easy drive from all of the top Chianti locations. I'll return!
