We visited Il Fondaccio in September 2012. Positive, the place is very nice inside and the pizza (Pugliese) was really good. Nice fresh sweetish dough. The Antipasti bar was a bit of a laugh, especially considering the 10 euro's we paid for it. The staff (i.e. the lady that served us) was unfortunately not very friendly. In short, go there for a spash and pizza dash, but don't expect anything else.

Everytime we visit Tuscany, we pop in to Castellina for a Pizza at Il Fondaccio - we are never disappointed whether it is a simple Margherita, a Quattro Staggioni or a Schicciata con Prociutto crudo. Stick to the classics and you wont be disappointed.

There's also a good wine list though the prices have creot up in the last few years.

If you're in Castellina and fancy a pizza then the Fondaccio is a must! Set on the pedestrianised main street, there's lots of outside tables under sun shades and more tables inside for those weary of the sun! Friendly staff will advise on their range of pizzas or you can choose from a Tuscan buffet laid-up inside. What a great way to spend a lunchtime or to watch the world pass by on a warm summer evening! Bliss!!

We came across il fondaccio on a brief stop in castellina in chianti. The town centre was charming and the pizza was an excellent freshly prepared one. Prices were very reasonable but I was disappointed to have a cover charge with not even any bread or appetiser provided. Cover charge was either 2.5 or 3 euros per person so a high percentage addition to a light inexpensive lunch.

Service was efficient.
