The Castagneto is a true hidden pearl in the mountains. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere welcoming, great value for money. The desserts are fabulous! It's well worth the trip.

The owners could not have been more helpful and we had two great Italian meals here. The food was delicious and we were helped to pick local dishes from the menu.

We spent two weeks in Grizzana Morandi staying at 6Stanco. We ate at Nel Castagneto four times. The restaurant is owned by the most warm and wonderful family. Mom Anna, Dad Andreas and daughter Christina. Christina has studied around the world and speaks wonderful English, Italian and German. She is an absolute pleasure to get to know. We ate some...
