Far off the beaten track Il Pozzo is a large restaurant in an open area with lovely gardens. We had a most lovely meal but I was bit disappointed by our Menu Tipico for 25€ as the flavours were bland and the emphasis on Cinghiali (wild boar) overdone. Our children had antipasti, pizza and pasta and loved it.! The staff... More

We found this little gem tucked away in a back street, whilst on holiday in Tuscany. Great food, service and atmosphere. The staff are lovely and have some great suggestions especially about the local wine. Well worth a visit.

Have had good pizza here but as a restaurant it leaves a lot to be desired. On one visit they insisted on putting us in the otherwise empty upstairs room (despite having booked); starter of courgette flowers had no taste because of thick, deep-fried batter; main course food was re-heated. Staff argued with our comments rather than apologising for poor... More

After being recommended by a local, we had a very pleasant meal on the patio here this week. Two of us ordered fresh tagliatelle with freshly shaved black truffles for 11 euros a plate. The pasta itself was very good (if not amazing) but of course, the fresh truffles were a real treat. Also ordered gnocchi and ravioli at the... More

Great steaks great food. We ate there 2 times. They close on Wednesdays or we would have eaten there 3 times. It is well managed, locals eat there. It is reasonable. The service is good, steaks better.

Great restaurant the way you dream true restaurants are supposed to be !! Food is authentic, local and extremely well prepared! Service is amazing and the best part is the atmosphere! One feels transported to another era, a true Italian experience. I recommend highly, you won't be disappointed !!

If you get the chance to go to Il Pozzo grab it with both hands. The service is great, the staff are very helpful. With such a lot to choose from on the menu, we decided to go for the degustation menu at 30e a head. This might sound expensive for rural Italy, but it is an experience worth spending... More

We have visited il pozzo for many years. We had lunch there last week and, as always, the food was fantasic, lobster pasta and veal chop, seafood salad and guinea fowl couldn't have been better. Also the prosseco a la spina at €5 for a half litre was almost too drinkable. It was very busy, with a lot of people... More
