We had a lunch at Il Pozza and loved it! Three of us went for the Tourist Menu, which was a set price and very reasonable. My six year old had just a plate of pasta and husband chose from the main menu. This restaurant is quite busy at lunch, with many locals taking advantage of a special lunch menu... More

We had dinner here last week with two teenagers in tow. They had pizza and we had the Tuscany Experience and compared with the over priced "experience" in southern Tuscany , the food was very good and great value. The outdoor seating area is lovely and the staff very friendly and helpful

Our waiter was a miserable SOB who never smiled all night. He was so miserable it became a source of amusement to the party. The food was OK but not brilliant. I guess this is what comes of having so little competition nearby.

I live in this area and know all the restaurants well. This is definitely one of the best. People come from all over to eat there; including Lucca and the Versiglia beach areas. The ambiance is very relaxing. You can eat indoors or outdoors. I would recommend the outdoor eating area. It's a big, covered terrace immediately adjoining a large... More

True Tuscan slow food in this family-owned and run resturant. Nice terrace and a garden for the children to run around in. Good price value ration

Having enjoyed the food at Il Pozzo on previous visits to the area, we decided to have our wedding lunch there in May. We weren't disappointed! Everything was set up beautifully and the menu was perfect with lots of local specialities including a traditional Italian wedding cake (delicious!) and excellent local wines. The service was great and the price very... More

We were staying in Castelnuovo and took the 3 km trekking path over the hill to Pieve Fosciana. I am not a great walker but would have walked twice the distance for what was awaiting us. The tasting menu is great. Local produce, home made pasta and a bottle of Grifo after opening the taste buds with a crips white.... More

This is reputedly one of the best restaurants in the area. However they have an offensive tourist rip off. Basically when you go in for lunch they give you a tourist set menu, which costs 14 euros. However this is exactly the same as the "pranzo lavoratori", or workers lunch, which costs only 10 euros. The insult is compounded when... More

Great selection of dishes to choose from and superb pizzas made to order in front of customers. Its tucked away in a back street... More
