“bad meat, excellent pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2014

This place was recommended to me by locals for their excellent fish. Since I don’t eat much fish, I ordered a meat main dish instead. The taste was weird and it was only a very small portion. So for meat dishes, stay away from this one. But please continue reading:

In the end, I went to this place many times because they offer excellent pizza like Buca Di Ipo at a similarly affordable price point. So when you’ve tried all the pizzas at Buca Di Ipo, you can continue your culinary exploration here :) What sets the Taverna degli Artisti apart is that they have their pizza oven in the middle of the sitting room. So you can actually watch the chef prepare, bake and decorate the pizzas while you wait.

“Your best find in the area..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2014

We looked for a number of places and in the end this had the best look as you walk in. A number of the ones we had found on TripAdvisor were also closed but the ones that were open were nowhere near as good as this one.

Once you eat here you will also understand why so many people say the Pizza is so good - because it really is! We liked it so much that rather than testing anywhere else we went there on our second and last night in Montevarchi as well! This time trying other things on the menu - the octupus salad and a pasta. The quality of the food is good and the price is great! So you get both quality and value - in a town like Montevarchi i believe that is a great find!

Service was good with the waitress and the Pizzaiolo with a smile on their faces - this made the whole experience better. You will also note that many of the locals eat here so another indication that this is one of the top places in town so make sure to enjoy it! The house wine is also good for the price along with the tiramisu.

The five stars has been given because it was the best one we found in the area and it was pleasant surprise.

“Nice pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

The pizza was nice but certainly not exceptional. Pasta was better. Price/quality was ok. Atmosphere wasn't realy special.

“Delicious pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014 via mobile

After finding out that reservations were necessary at the popular "Daniele e Riccardo", we ended up trying this place and were very pleasantly surprised. It seemed quite empty from the outside, but there's a space in the back where everyone was sitting with a view on the pizza oven. Given that it was still quite calm on a Friday night, this place may be underrated. The service was very friendly and the pizza tasted great, all at a very good price! So if you're looking for something really good and cheap in Montevarchi, go here!
