Nicely situated in the beautiful Iano with good views and easy parking on top of a minimarket open 7.30am to 8.30. Pm every day including sundays. Lovely venue, but service could have been better as you cannot chose your table. Great sicilian cooked cheese that we shared and brochetta apperitivo was really good. NB: you can bye icecream takeaway !

The food served in the rather bland setting of the Piazzetta del Borgo is simply marvelous. My oldest son and myself picked out the restaurant on recommendation from our vacation rental owner and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. Excellent products, an undeniable craftsman in the kitchen and simply outstanding levels of service at the table make this... More

La Piazzetta del Borgo is a must for people who appreciate creative, well-prepared food. The chef, Andrea Castellacci, from Sicily, does a great job of making local foods as well as dishes from other regions in Italy. Not only is the presentation elegant, the flavors are so carefully executed that the main ingredient is never obscured. We were fortunate staying... More

We returned from Tuscany this weekend and ate in this restaurant more than anywhere else. Although the surroundings are not "pretty" - a modern building with outside tables, the food is excellent. The service is particularly good and the prices are very reasonable. We would highly recommend this.

We found this delightful restaurant too late to visit more than twice, had we found it sooner we would have definitely eaten there every night!! On arrival at the restaurant, the place looks very unassuming but diners are treated to a wonderful meal. The very talented chef is Sicilian and the food reflects this whilst his lovely wife charms front... More

We decided to have lunch in this restaurant as we were staying in the village. We werent disappointed - it exceeded our expectations. The restuarant doesnt look particularly pretty as it is situated in a modern looking building with the village store next door. But the tables are nicely laid and the chairs are modern looking and comfortable - so... More

La Pazzetta offers a more refined Tuscan cuisine. The prizes are a bit higher than in a "normal" Tuscan restaurant, but the food is good. The only disadvantage : you can only sit outside when the weather is very good. Otherwise you have to sit inside where there are only a few tables and you don't have a view, no... More

Beautiful attention to detail and so very tasty, this restaurant is up there with some of the fancy London restaurants, yet in a lovely hamlet in tuscany! Cinzia was so helpful in catering for a...

Four of us ate here after several recommendations, and we were suitably impressed, especially with the attentive but non-intrusive service. Every course was very good indeed, but following the trend the chocolate soufflé is every bit as good as the recommendations would indicate. Only disappointment was they didn't have any after dinner drinks!
