No one told me about this lovely place in Certaldo Alto so it was really a gift for us to found it. We have been there twice and probably will be back tomorrow to eat the best italian pizza i,ve founded and the real italian food, best pasta, ever. Accurate prices and good prices make this ristorante one of our... More

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.

This is a really good place to eat local food with a good menu and fantastic pizza at great prices. There is a nice outdoor garden and an atmospheric interior. Service is friendly, food is good (deserts excepted) and very good value

We had lunch here in the outside courtyard on a beautiful afternoon. The house red wine was among the best we had on our trip. They bring bread and pomodoro sauce soon after you are seated and the pomodoro sauce was the freshest tasting I have ever had. The thin crust pizza was perfect, we all loved it. The service... More

Not only is this place INCREDIBLE from a historical perspective (a well-preserved 15th century cantina with ORIGINAL fermentation vats and wonderfully carved pietra serena stone), but the pizza is divine. Really. If you're a fan of delicate thin crust like me- with savory marinara (not bland pomarola)- then this is the pizza place for you. Wood fired oven to boot.... More

We had a lovely dinner later in the evening, the atmosphere and the restaurant terrace are very beautiful and spacious enough for both romantic dinner or sitting with a bigger group of friends. The fiorentina steak was absolutely perfect as well as pasta and other side dishes. The service was excellent. Very good place!

My wife and I enjoyed lunch on the terrace under a large tree. The service was very good and the staff was friendly. My wife loved her pizza and my pasta with sausage and wild mushrooms was perfect. We were not rushed and allowed to enjoy our wine and relax after touring the town.
