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

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
