My boyfriend and I went to Le Castagne last Jan29, without knowing their celebrating restaurant week. It was my best Italian experience! The menu included modern and original interpretations of handmade pastas, seafood, veal and other traditional dishes. Enjoyed every bite of it! We’ve already decided to come back next week.
Plain and simple review for this astonishing place:
Food – 5/5 (must-try: Timballo d’agnello brasato)
Ambiance – 4/5 (comfy and very relaxing)
Staff – 4/5 (always with a smile)
Menu Selection – 5/5
Prices – 4/5 (value for money)
Definitely the best Italian place in Philly!
My family and I have been going to Le Castagne for quite awhile now. We love this place! The food is the best. They also have the coolest staff around. Desserts and wine collection are also fantastic. Their Gnocchi and the Tiramisu are my all-time fave!
After hearing my friend rave so much about this restaurant, I decided to have lunch at Le Castagne. I am glad, it did not fail to impress me. I ordered the chicken scallopine and grilled octopus, and I enjoyed my lunch. I will definitely come back to try their other dishes.
I have always enjoyed dinner at Le Castagne. I love the interiors and the ambience. One of my favorites is the the Carpaccio di manzo which has sliced beef and mixed greens. I also like their mashed potatoes.
I just love this place. The staff and waiters are very cool. The place is so neat and comfy. And the food is one of the best in town. Wine selections are amazing too! Come visit this place and you will know what I mean.
Top of the line meal! My friend took me at Le Castagne for a date. The entire meal was just fabulous! Our server was such a gentleman and he and the chef took care of my dietary/allergy needs by substituting in a meal I was interested in. Both I and my friend’s food were supreme! We plan on going back very soon.
