Like other writers, we were just visiting Certado for the day ( our Satnav struggled to find the upper town!) a really nice place with lots of places to choose from for lunch but we were so glad we stumbled across the Osteria Vicario Having been in and around San Gimignano for a week I would have to say this...

We went to Certaldo as a leisurely day-trip from Florence. After walking and breathing in the beauty of the upper town, we happened on this Osteria. We're so glad we did. We were the first ones there for lunch. The server could not have been more helpful. She even suggested a wine from the region (always important to us) and... More

The location for this restaurant is very nice and the decor, layout and service were all good too..... ....however, the food was very disappointing especially since the prices were higher than any other restaurant in the whole area. It seemed as though the chef had seen lots of pictures of food from fancy restaurants and so was very good at... More

First let me say that if I was going back to Certaldo this is where I would stay, although staying there when we did was something of an experience! They weren't really open for the season at the time, even the restaurant was closed, but they let us stay there anyway. This old building has a lot of character, with... More

We stayed here the night before and after our wedding. Sara is terrific - the service was very warm and friendly. The hotel is beautiful - very charming. Rooms are small but well decorated and clean. Bathrooms are modern and well functioning. I would stay here again on our next visit to the area. The restaurant was not open for... More

We found this to be a great location. We arrived the day before our wedding and had to do a lot of running around to do. It was a breeze and everything was close by. We had our ceremony in the museum next door and then went back to the Osteria del Vicario for the best meal we had in... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days for a family member's wedding, and had a wonderful time. To be fair, the rooms could be better - air con would be nice, and one or two of the rooms could do with a bathroom upgrade. However, they are charming and rustic, and do the job nicely. The courtyard is beautiful... More

There are five rooms on the second floor. We and our wedding guests occupied four of them. Rooms 1 & 2 are small but have wardrobes. Room 3 is so small that there is not room for a wardrobe but it does have a ceiling fan and a painted mural on the wall. We stayed in room 4 which was... More

I do believe it is a "must" for anyone who enjoys Tuscany in its most genuine chatacteristics. The tiny eleventh century town, home of Boccaccio, kept intact till today is just enchanting. Osteria del Vicario brought me right inside the atmosphere of Tuscan history and tradition. The rooms are just perfect: comfort coupled with ancient furniture and tapestry ; the... More
