We had been in Italy for a week and only had mediocre pizza. FInally at a cooking class in San Donato, our teacher suggested we try Palazzo Pretorio for a good Neapolitan Style pizza. He was right. The pizza was great and the service was excellent. One word of caution, do make a booking. The place does get packed.

We stayed in San Donato for 4 nights and ate here for the 3 of them. The food was very good and reasonably priced as was the wine. The staff were really friendly and service excellent. Ideal if you are staying in the Malaspina.

We stayed in town so ended up visiting this restaurant 3 times. All the pizza's we had were delicious and the spaghetti lobster pretty decent too. The view is fantastic and the staff all very friendly. Best restaurant in town comfortably.

Very nice restaurant in the beautiful hilltop town of San Donato in Poggio. We were lucky enough to book a table for dinner on the elevated terrace for 6 adults. The location captured the wonderful atmosphere of the Chianti region and was the perfect selection for our first dinner out. The food was buonissimo and the service very friendly and... More

Me and my husband ordered our pizza! Within minutes we received a very black, extremely though and extremely salty pizza. Uneatable. As the waitress came to clean the table, she didn't even ask how we liked our meal. Zero for friendliness and professionalty.

Recently visited the Palazzo in San Donato which is not easy to find but really worthwhile to try it for lunch or. dinner. The restaurant is spezialized on seafood. We tried amongst others the camberony, the fried calmar and the mixed seafood platter. The last one in particular was excellent. The primo platti (carpaccio, gnocchi, spaghetti were also good. The...

We decided to visit this restaurant after reading other reviews. It wasn't the easiest to find but glad we did. We didn't make a reservation the first visit so could only eat inside which was also lovely. We enjoyed our first visit so much we booked again but for a table on the terrace which is simply beautiful. This restaurant... More

We were living a few meters from this restaurant. Every evening we could feel smell from kitchen. And smell was good. Finally we have decided to visit this restaurant. Off the topic, how Italians can follow starter, prima piatti and secondi piatti? I am dying after my one course :) I have ordered pasta with lobster. Lobster was very good.... More

You need to make a booking as it fills up quickly. We were amazed at the quality of the dishes and the sizes. Ordered an octopus salad as an entree to share, huge plate of delicious octopus on a fresh salad. This would have been enough. I also ordered linguine with scampi and vongale! Wow, the dish came in a... More
