Splendid

Just enjoyed a wonderful lunch of a sharing platter for starter, a lamb dish and king prawns wrapped in pancetta with accompaniments. Location is breathtaking and service is brisk and friendly.

Food was good, and the view from the terras is pretty amazing. Awesome to watch the sun set. The slow service however spoiled our experience. We had to wait about 45 minutes after we finished our meal before the plates were being taken away and we could order desserts. Coffee was forgotten. We waited 20 minutes after asking the bill...

They have both a wine cellar / wine bar with some snacks as well as the main restaurant with tables both inside as well as on a big outdoor terrace (with an _amazing_ view!). Tasted several good dishes here and can recommend the place. Make sure you stop by for some drinks in the wine bar also - their sausage... More

The vegetables and salads were quite good. The pasta, of course, was homemade and the various entrees were staples of Italian cuisine. We tried several wines as the sun set and enjoyed the company of good friends. The wait staff helped us enjoy the night and were attentive to our needs.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed a very tasty Wild Boar on Pinzagrilli's beautiful terrace. The service was great (especially where the proprietor was involved), the wine was great (and reasonable) and the views of Cecina and the coast were unrivalled. A real little gem!

Genuine, warm, homemade and delicious local food. If you are planning a chit-chat and would like to ask a lot of questions in English – don’t go there! If you would like the best food in miles around, talk to your love ones and perhaps brush off some of your Italian – this is the place. With a few Italian... More

We went here three times and had different fabulous food and wine every time. We are more the drop in types so didnt get the outdoor area until our 3rd visit. Also has a nice wine tasting, snack bar in the lane leading to the restaurant if you have to wait for a table, salami and snacks are fantastico.

Our first night in Guardistallo brought us to this lovely restaurant. Our first meal was superb. We ate inside. The boar stew was fantastic and the suggested red from Bolgheri the perfect accompaniment. Service was friendly if a bit slow. Cost was reasonable. The second night we sat outside to take in the stunning view. Service was not as good.... More

A good selection of food in this lovely little restaurant. The interior is beautifully decorated and the serving staff are very friendly. The food and wine we had were delicious and, as with all restaurants in the area, very good value for money.
