Hi all, from Giovanni Santarpia. I take this opportunity to thank you all for the reviews to me. Every review for me has an important meaning for my professional growth: the bad ones have allowed me to tune on the same wavelength of customers and ensure that they are accommodated, the positive ones were a source of gratification, essential to continue in my job. So I thank everyone, without exception. My goal is to satisfy every single person. Giovanni Santarpia

Great location and great pizza

Lovely and beautiful location. We were lucky our Apartment's owner knows the owner, so we got a reservation right away. Our pizza were great and the service was proper and friendly.

I really hope the reason for our poor service is a "two tier" approach from the staff, with the customers sat on the outdoor sunset terrace getting the best welcome. Our experience, sat indoors, was one of the less memorable meals we had in San Donato. Left waiting for about 30 mins until even the water arrived (we had to... More

At first, try to get a table in the garden if the weather and season is appropriate. You will get a wonderful view over the valley. During our last week we visited this restaurant three times and were completely satisfied every time. We had shared antipasti and, during the visit when we were three persons, we had three different pasta... More

Oh my gawd, says my travel companion as he rolls back his eyes after biting into the pumpkin cream sauce and mozzarella cheese and bacon pizza. This is hands down the best thing I have ever eaten on this trip, as he rubs his belly. Now this I had to try for myself. The bite took me on a trip... More

After a lot of decadent meals in Tuscany we wanted a simple, great pizza and our hotel recommended Palazzo Pretorio. It was by far my favorite pizza ever and the view from the upstairs patio is incredible. Plus it is in a wonderful, small, romantic village that we never would have found on our own. It was a local place... More

First night meal and had delicious food sat in a covered garden terrace. Lovely pizza and sweets with nice glasses of Chianti make for a perfect evening.

We found this little gem hidden around the corner. It had delicious food and wine, great service and a beautiful view which added to the experience. It's also very modern for the region.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our host and we were excited to try it! She described it as the best pizza around. We arrived relatively early when they opened (around 7 or 7:30 and the place was completely empty. Literally not a soul in the place. All we wanted was to try the outstanding pizza we had heard...
