A must stop if you’re touring the Chianti region. Tables are located on a quaint pedestrian thoroughfare. The pizza is thin crusted with a hint of sweetness and fire roasted to perfection. We choose two pizzas – one with local salami and mushrooms and the other topped with four local cheeses. They paired perfectly with glass of Chianti Classico.

My wife and I decided to eat at this restaurant this September whilst on vacation. After a long day out, we chose a table inside and had we had to get a table ourselves since the 2 waitresses at front couldn't be bothered with seating us. It felt as if we were an inconvenience - this should have been our... More

I've been coming here regularly for around 10 years, and recently I've been saddened to read the increasingly more frequent reviews about service. This time I'm here on honeymoon, and dropped in for a quiet night with my wife. We asked to sit inside as it was beginning to turn chilly outside and we were told to take our pick.... More

We assume the Pizza Chef was away in August! Pizza was very good. Restaurant had a lively/friendly atmosphere and the service was fine.

When we first asked for a table at the restaraunt for four people for lunch a female waitress asked us to wait 5 minutes for a table to be re set, after 10 minutes she still had not cleared the table, I asked again and the other female waitress said 10 minutes, only that we had promised our boys pizza...

Simply awful.. I have no words. Awful service, the most disgusting pizza ever. The most rude waiters on this planet.

Wonderful Pizzas, reasonable prices and situated centrally within Castellina in Chianti where you can watch the world go by......but the service is something else! There were loads of free tables for two, we requested a table, asked to sit at a couple of different ones but were told they were reserved......although they remained empty for the remainder of the evening...

Right in the middle of Castellina, with a great outdoor (or indoor) seating area. Plenty of pizza options for everyone, and the prices are very reasonable. Good service. Some locals say this is the best pizza in Chianti. Found it to be very good. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the area.

The Good: The pizza was very good, some of the best I've ever had. The Bad and the Ugly: The service was deplorable. My drinks and food came on time. But after my plate had been cleared, I waited 50 minutes before my wife begged for a check. During this 50 minutes, our wine glasses sat dry. We wanted to... More
