“Tuscan food in a different frame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

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 the desserts very much.

“Excellent food experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

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 see the english owner working and rushing around while his italian wife (also working in the restaurant) was having a good time with friends at a table!!! Excellent evening! Go there...

“Simply fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

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! :-))

“The best Papardelle con Chianghale in Toscana.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

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 that you either have good directions and/or GPS handy.

“Fantastic food and beautiful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

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 a great wine list- plus the prices were very reasonable for food of this quality. We adored the suckling pig and greedy potatoes. A former hunting lodge, this place is drop-dead gorgeous- both inside and out. Beautiful, but upscale casual and not at all stuffy. While our cold, rainy evening required eating inside, they have a fantastic large patio that looked amazing for alfresco dining. Highly recommend!
