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 stopped by twice, both times the pizza was great and service was swift. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

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

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.
