We passed an impressive gate and noticed a nice building inside. We realised it was a restaurant. As we needed something to eat before going to Siena listening to Italian arias we gave it a go. As our time was limited pizza was our choice. Different toppings, the size and the tasted made it an experience to remember. The atmosphere... More

We have been fortunate enough to visit wonderful Tuscany, and notably Castellina-in-Chianti, once or twice a year for several years and on each and every occasion visit many local eateries. In all of our numerous visits we had, to date not tried the food at Il Fondaccio Dia Dottori, primarily because we had been staying on the other side of... More

The worst service in more than 15 yrs of travelling through Italia. Went there to take away 4 pizzas. Maybe these guys do not need the business of 25 euros... Everybody there except one guy looked pissed off!!! The few minutes we waited have been a miserable experience. The food? Pizza. Normal pizza. I am not able to go back... More

We had here 2 dinners and it was "bellissimo" !! Great hospitality and a warm "buonasera" from whole the staff. You feel directly welcome and comfortable on the nice and cosy terrace in the garden. You can choose from the great antipasti buffet. There is a good choice on the menu for primi and secundo piatti and dolci. Also pizzas... More

The food was OK, nothing spectacular. The decoration was still a reminder of the seventies with a carrot and parsley on the plates, the mixed salad was boring and again arranged in an ancient way. The service is very slow. Not such a great experience

We were 4 food was not served at same time for all of us. When we tried to point this out owner and staff were very rude. Infact the owner said give it to your dog if you don't want it. This is a disgrace to Italian to hospitality. Do not go to this restaurants. A disappointment to finish our... More

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
