We've been in the area for a week and have really struggled to find a good meal out. This restaurant was perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The service was prompt and professional. The flavours were authentic and obviously home made. We both had starters, then had a lovely pasta dish and a fillet steak. Both were delicious. The... More

Had dinner with relatives at this beautiful restaurant, outside under a large tree canopy. Service was efficient, very friendly with good advice and explanation of the menu. All choices our group made turned out to be good. No haute cuisine but tasty and good value for money!

We went here on our first evening in Certaldo at the start of our 2 week holiday.. Wow, pizzas were amazing!!! We just had pizzas and beer but vowed to come back and try the steak, which we did on our last evening in Certaldo Alto.. We were not disappointed at all. It was the best steak I have ever... More

Saw other reviews and took the time to find the right place. Daughter said "Best Pizza Ever", son echoed her. Great quality pizza at reasonable price. Wish we'd found it earlier in our holiday

This was a charming restaurant in CertaldoAlto. The staff were fantastic and we enjoyed the meal a lot. The quality of the food was great and the outside courtyard eating was very comfortable.

Probably the best pizza you will ever eat. This is pizza as it should be. Not chopped up topping but laid out in sections. You can pick one and then personalise it. The open wine is good and perfect with pizza.

We sat on the terrace downstairs, which was very cosy. There weren't any tables on the panoramic terrace, I presume because of the festival that took place the night before. We got bread with olive oil and tomato sauce as a complimentary appetizer. The pizza was very good and quite cheap. Service was friendly.

Stopped off at Da Messer Boccaccio for a lunch on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Yummy pizza and lovely service. The food was to die for and an amazing wild boar pasta dish. Perfect food for where we were and enjoyable time. Very lovely service and nice and quick.
