Great thin crust pizza

We had lunch at Pizzeria il Fondaccio during our trip to Tuscany. It is located on the main street of the hill top town and is a good place to people watch. On the day we were there, there were a number of cycling groups in town. We managed to get a table on their busy outdoor patio. For... read more

We ate at this restaurant 3 times in 2 weeks. Everything was delicious - porcini pizza, ravioli with butter and sage, and the antipasti has so many delicious choices. We had the house wine, which was very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Castellina is well stocked with restaurants, especially for such a small hilltop town, but sometimes you just need a snack, or to dine more simply. We found that Pizzaria del Fondaccio was just right for these needs. Delicious pizza of the thin crust style, covered with imaginative toppings of your choosing! Yum. ....

We found this place by coincidence when strolling around the Chianti region and stopping in Castellina just to see town. Il Fondaccio pizza was the best we tested after travelling around Italy and tasting several pizzas. Just the perfect balance of flavors, fresh ingredients and perfect cooking. We tried the prosciutto with melon and it was just delicious as well.... More

We went to Florence, Rome, much of Tuscany and Sicily. This was our favorite pizza! Beyond the food the atmosphere was lively, the staff was welcoming and we made lots of traveling friends!

The pizza with fresh porcini mushrooms was to die for ! We had it for lunch twice. Nice thin crispy crust too! Sometimes the service is slow if they are busy. If you are in Castellina you must try it!

We just wanted a pizza and salads, so we went there. Simple Italian food, good one, a pizza is a whole pizza, way enough for two people. Their caprese salad was OK. Price was fair, service was OK. Nothing too exciting but a decent, good place.

Unpleasant experience. Our "mistake" was to ask for a take-away Pizza. It would have been no problem for us if this was not possible. Instead, we did get a Pizza but it came with a very unfriendly treatment. We were asked in an unfriendly tone to pay beforehand and it was the very first time in my life that I... More

Perfectly thin crusted pizza from a wood burning oven. After several weeks in Tuscany, this topped the list. Great people-watching while waiting for the quite large pizza to arrive. Will long for this pizza until our return to Italy!

We have eaten here many times over the years and it never disappoints. It is a fun, relaxed pizza place oure and simple with everyone choosing to sit outside where you can watch the world wander past. Allways been happy to eat here and will be back again.
