Our hotel recommended this restaurant and as we were hungry we went to it without checking the reviews. I had the chicken ragu pasta...it just had no flavor. I had the beef stew for my 2nd plate. The only flavor was pepper and the salad was doused in salt. One of the worst meals I've had. The waiters body odor... More

Looking for something special to finish off my trip and was advised here by my hotel. They must be getting a kick-back. I'm sitting here after having a very average soggy pizza and no one has been near me for 30 minute, which in the case of the owner is a blessing as he has really bad BO. Lots better... More

We ate at Il Fondaccio dai Dottori last week during our stay at an agriturismo near Castellina. I wish there was a rating between "average" and "very good". By standards of a small town this restaurant was very good, but it wasn't nearly as good as some of the other places in Castellina. For a place that specializes in pizza... More

A fantastic Pizzeria just 5 min walk out of town (towards San Donato). The Anti Pasto is fantastic as are the Pizza's (which you can watch being made). They also have an excellent non- pizza menu. It is always busy. The two managers Zimmie and his brother are excellent hosts and work their socks off. Il Dottore is usually there... More

This was the only place we visited twice during our two week holiday in the area. The location is great and the food is lovely. Specifically the antipasti buffet is worth a try. Personnel still has the "slightly arrogant" Italian attitude and serve you with style.

The setting for this restaraunt is perfect, we sat on the terrace and our kids had a good run around in the fabulous garden. We were greeted by who we assumed to be the owner, he was a larger than life friendly guy who got us a lovely table and made a nice fuss of our kids. I ordered the... More

Superb service and food. They recommended a really good local wine which did the trick too. Wish we didn't live so far away or we would treat ourselves here every special occasion. The "mine host" and his staff are real good.

I sometimes think when people come to an extraordinary beautiful/scenic area, they leave their sense of reasoning at home and then write reviews that rate a totally average restaurant as one of the better ones in the area of Castellina... If you want a cheap pizza made with cheaper ingredients then this is your place... Nothing about this place is... More
