Great pizza in a beautiful city

Pizzeria il Fondaccio is a great place to grab pizza and wine in Castellina in Chianti. The location is perfectly situated in the heart of the city and there is ample outdoor seating if you want to do a little people watching during your meal. The pizza was great - very fresh toppings and thin... read more

This was our 3rd time to Tuscany in 10 years. Il Fondaccio has been a beacon of reliability. It was the same staff delivering the same great product: great pizza in an environment where you can watch your pizza being made. As my son said, "why can't I get pizza like this in America?"

We just had wine and some appetizers out on the front patio. Great spot to sit with friends, enjoy the outdoors, and people watch.

Late lunchtime on an early December day, 6 of us descended upon Castellina. We were fortunate to find il Fondaccio open and ready for business. No one was there. They warned us they had only pizza (not an elaborate menu with pasta, etc.) available - fine with us. Pizzas and calzones were super, and at a reasonable price. Good choices... More

Could be the best pizza that we have ever had, and we have had our fair share :) Great location, great service, but seriously the best pizza ever, ordered the Calabrese, but started with the buffet with various standard Italian staters. Not chap, but well worth the price.

We were tired from a day of exploring and didn't feel like cooking or going all the way into Siena so we ventured up the road to Castellina in Chianti for a nice dinner. We had tried Il Cantuccio the week before so wanted to try something different and ended up at the pizza joint right next door. It was... More

Castellina is simply lovely if you happen to be visiting this pizzeria provides an adequate place to eat. We popped in early evening on our way back from Siena and although it was before 7 they were serving food which was a bonus. I chose a standard margarita which was stone baked and was to a good standard my partner... More
