Just great pizza in a great setting

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.

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

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
