Having enjoyed the food at Il Pozzo on previous visits to the area, we decided to have our wedding lunch there in May. We weren't disappointed! Everything was set up beautifully and the menu was perfect with lots of local specialities including a traditional Italian wedding cake (delicious!) and excellent local wines. The service was great and the price very reasonable.

Try the tasting menu - amazing food and excellent value

We were staying in Castelnuovo and took the 3 km trekking path over the hill to Pieve Fosciana. I am not a great walker but would have walked twice the distance for what was awaiting us. The tasting menu is great. Local produce, home made pasta and a bottle of Grifo after opening the taste buds with a crips white.
If you are in the vicinity definitely worth a try. Eating experiences like this does not come too often

This is reputedly one of the best restaurants in the area. However they have an offensive tourist rip off. Basically when you go in for lunch they give you a tourist set menu, which costs 14 euros. However this is exactly the same as the "pranzo lavoratori", or workers lunch, which costs only 10 euros. The insult is compounded when they also charge you for wine and coffee, which is included in the workers lunch. So you end up paying nearly double what the locals pay....brazen exploitation from a restaurant that is on the "Slow Food Guide"
Not only that but given that they make the judgement of which menu you get on face value, I felt it was racist. For this reason I can not recommend this restaurant.

We have eaten here many times over many years and love going back, always book before you turn up as even when its out of season its busy with locals who know its the areas best. Great selection of dishes to choose from and superb pizzas made to order in front of customers. Its tucked away in a back street of Pieve Fosciana which is 2 kms from Castelnuovo. During the summer you can choose to eat either inside or al-fresco. Several staff speak limited restaurant English but if you engage the staff with some Italian language they light up and service does improve. Can be very busy.
