Very cute restaurant right in heart of town. Pizza was very good and long list of pizza options. Took a bit long, but that is part of Italy.

We stayed near Castellina in an agriturismo and came into town several nights for dinner. We at the Pizzeria il Fondaccio our first night in town. Pizza was good but took a very long time to arrive. Service was friendly but slow (a common theme among many of the restaurants we enjoyed while in Italy). Location is good, right on... More

We booked a table the day before -we asked for 8pm but were asked if we could come earlier at 7.30pm, so we did. We sat down at our table a little after 8pm - kept waiting for half an hour, although a glass of prosecco appeased we adults a little, but did nothing to help the two poor children... More

Since 1994 we were here about 10 times. This pizzeria was one of the raisons to come back to Castellina. The pizzas were superb and yes unique in the world !! Yes the service is still friendly and you still feel comfortable on the nice terrace. BUT there is no more an antipasti buffet ; the size of the pizzas... More

We have not tasted better pizzas during our stay in Italy than here. The white pizza with truffles was the best we tasted. The pizzas are cheap but the cover charge of 2 or 2,5 Euros per person is a bit expensive.

Lunch with my husband. Our order took 50 minutes, we starved! Everyone's order was late which is shocking for a place that only served pizza! Pizza was average.

Only one word to say about this place - OTTIMO. Pizzas just don't come any better. Always full, but the service is quick and efficient and you don't wait long for a table outside. This place is a must when visiting Castellina.

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, crispy crust. There was also... 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?"
