Convenient and bustling

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

We have eaten in this restaurant many times over the last six months and last night was as good as always. Lovely family atmosphere and truly warm people. Service is good and food was excellent.

This place was definitely a disappointment. On this trip, not for the first time, we found Trip-advisor inconsistent as a source of restaurant recommendations (unlike hotel recommendations where it almost always serves us well). I can only speculate that our taste in restaurants does not align with that of most Tripadvisor users (being mostly of a different cultural background). That... More

This is one of the best restaurants we ate! Amazing food, service and kindness of the owners of the restaurant (it is a family restaurant) are outstanding! You can even buy wine and homemade olive oil! And prices are not expensive at all!

We were a party of eight who visited this restaurant after reading some complimentary reviews, unfortunately our experience was anything but pleasant. It started reasonably enough with being recommended a good local wine, which we asked to be decanted and it was, unfortunately this was the only thing which went right the entire evening. It started by our children wanting... More

Super welcoming by Francesco and his staff, wonderful food, excellent wines, great location!! Special requests from the kids (penne a panna e prosciutto, mojito (!!) ) were no problem at all. Francesco's choice of wines to accompany the meals was spot-on every time! See you next time, Francesco!

This is the nicest family restaurant that we have ever been in. The food is amazing, just perfect! Try the pizzas and fiorentina, doesn't get any better that that!

We stayed at a tiny villa just outside of Monte San Savino and ventured into the historic town several times. Our favorite restaurant by far was Il Cassero. We ate here three times - 2 dinners, 1 lunch. It was Molto delicioso each time. Francesco, the owner/waiter was very friendly and helpful and spoke English...taught us a few Italian phrases... More
