Superb Tuscan food and wine. This is certainly not just a Pizza Parlour I

We stayed in Monte San Savino for four nights and ate three times at Il Cassero ( the restaurant rather than the Pizza palour which seems to be mentioned a lot here). Francesca, the owner, and his brilliant staff cared for us so well and produced brilliant food and wine..... Some of the best we... read more

During a 3 day stay in Monte San Savino we ate here 2 times. I came back because the pizza was delicious. Their waitstaff does speak english so ordering was simple. The tables outside are reserved. So if you want to sit outside you will have to reserve a table. The food came quickly and price was affordable.

We didn't understand the whole italian menu, so my husband got something else than pasta. He was really sceptic when he looked at the food, but it tasted really good. My pasta was also good. The restaurant is located outside the walls, so it's easy to find.

My Wife and I ate in Il Cassero twice during our stay in Monte Sansavino. On both visits, the staff were very friendly and made us feel welcome. The pizzas were of a good quality, and very enjoyable. The pasta dish that my Wife had on the second visit was less to her taste, but still ok. I had a... More

Being on vacation for one week in Tuscany, I had fair expectations re the food. I googled and tripadvisored a lot of restaurants and eventually booked by email a table in Il Cassero. Nice welcome and even nicer provided that they did not have my reservation but still gave me a table. I had the multiple pecorini as a starter.... More

We loved the outside cafe and the service we received. Someone always spoke English. The food was fantastic. I returned with our adult family and friends for my 62 nd birthday lunch

Handy restaurant in centre of Monte San Savino with outdoor seating which was very welcome after a long days travel from Ireland. Food and wine all very acceptable, nice easy informal atmosphere. Pizzas excellent-past dishes very good -small portions. Great ice cream shop next door.

Nice Pizza and other Italian specialities. Local wine is more than okay. Not expensive for what you get. Friendly staff.

Not a special-occasion place, but more than adequate for lunch and taking advantage of the beautiful view from Monte San Savino's hilltop. We had hot garbanzos with pecorino, honey, and mostarda; bruschetta with 3 toppings; risotto with porcini and truffle oil; gnochetti with tomato, basil and eggplant; and a green salad. With a litre of young local wine, the bill... More
