“Wonderful authentic tuscan fare”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

A large group of friends and family shared a villa in Certaldo and on one evening ten of us chose the osteria for dinner. I manged to book a table in Italian but by the time we arrived Chiara had prepared a menu in English for us. We received a very friendly welcome and enjoyed a wide selction including antipasto, a trio of cheeses, zuppa Certaldese (a local onion soup speciality) and a beautifully fragrant cinghiale. Including two courses for all, few desserts, beer, wine and water the bill was still less than 30 Euros per head. A great way to spend an evening in Tuscany and excellent value.

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Family owned restaurant, with a very relaxed atmosphere and a wonderful Tuscan view; make a reservation for a table at the front on the beautiful terrace and make sure you get there for sunset...you will get a breathtaking view. The service was excellent, with the owner always taking the time to talk with guests and the all staff very kind, willing to explain anything on the menu with pleasure. Fantastic regional food, with a good wine selection (owners reccomendation were great), reasonably priced. Definitively a very positive experience.

“Excellent food”

Great food. Price is standard for the region. Portions are of a good size. Don't over order as you will be stuffed with great food. On the weekends, be sure to have reservation.

“Tuscan Food Well Done”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We ate here twice during our 5 day stay at near-by Villa il Pozzo. The atmosphere is warm and cozy and in fact couldn't be better. The owner and his staff, including his daughter are lovely people and made us feel so welcome. There is a sense of pride in what they do and they are willing to explain anything on the menu with pleasure, which I did not always find the case while in Italy. The food was enjoyable, well prepared and reasonably priced, as was the wine. I would highly recommend this jewel of a restaurant.
