Castagna is a tiny spot on Chestnut where you’ll feel like a regular, even if you’ve never been here before. That’s mostly because the staff goes out of their way to make everyone feel at home, from suggesting their favorite wine to joking about what you’re ordering like they’re related to you. The food is French, and it’s all good and perfect to split with someone else. Go for the french onion soup, provencale pizza with ratatouille on a thin cracker crust, and duck confit.
Café Castagna: Provençal Bistro is permanently closed.
