“Favorite Restaurant in Certaldo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Used to live in Certaldo, this is a nice family owned restaurant. Reasonable prices, the owner can speak some English.

“Fabulous Lunch and Nice Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

The staff were absolutely lovely and could not be more helpful.
A small establishment with a few tables so do not expect fine dining, however the food is simple cuisine, the cured hams and salami werejust exceptional as was the wild boar pasta dishes.
Overall a delightful lunch and truely Tuscan cuisine at its best. We are looking forward to coming back.

“how can this place have a certificate of excellence?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

I just happened to be here tonight on TripAdvisor because of the Mercantia event 2013... Dear TripAdvisor, how can this place have a certificate of excellence 2013? Don't you read the reviews? Your own reviews? The ones you published and which had been classifying this place to be somehow, yes, even hostile towards people who come up to Certaldo Alto and dare to sit down at this place of explicit non-hospitality, hostile maybe because they are foreigners...? If we talk about an organisation called "Advisor", you cannot seriously recommend this place to the ones who are consulting TripAdvisor. My worst experience in eating out in 67 years had been at Chichibio who (the eponym) had been not a clever but a mendacious cook to a noble man, and alright, in one or the other way this clearly comes up to how Chichibio of the so-called modern times is treating guests who dare to enter the place. My wife and I have to warn everybody and especially our German fellow-countrymen (ich warne meine Landsleute) to eat or try to eat at Chichibio.

I have to mention when I had been there. I have been there in Certaldo Alto In September 2012 but of course we did not enter this so-called pretending-hospitality establishment.

“Very small place to eat traditional Tuscany food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

If you want to take a rest, stop here and taste some Tuscany food. The service is a little bit long and the place quite small, but the food is very tasty and prices are low.
