Certaldo was a surprise. Barely mentioned in Michelin, it is a walled city that reeks of authenticity. We only found it on referral from our innkeeper and it is best reached by a cable car ride up the hill on which it sits. Taverna is located on the walls, with a spectacular view of the valley below. It was a great spot for a romantic dinner. Each of us had a local pasta dish, mine was shrimp and delicately flavored. My wife had a mediterranean pasta. Both were made with the special local noodles which, for want of better Italian, I'll call fat spaghetti. Both dishes were delicious. The value was excellent, as well. Highly recommended.

Strolling through Certaldo we stopped here for a light lunch. It was great and friendly service :-) We had pasta and bruschetta, both were great and just right for lunch.

Situated in the heart of old town Certaldo with views to San Gimignano, this delightful restaurant has a gorgeous outside flower filled terrace with umbrellas and pergolas. Intimate, romantic yet still appropriate for couples, families and friends. Menu choice is wide, all local produce, excellent quality, beautifully presented, incredibly delicious and good portions. Wine list is excellent providing a good price range, from reasonably to more expensively priced wines. House wine by the carafe was excellent. Friendly, helpful service, fantastic spot - absolutely not to be missed on any visit. Reservations highly recommended particularly if you wish to request a panoramic view.

If you are in the area, take the time to go up to Certaldo Alto- a historic walled town on the hill, it looks like a movie set.
this restaurant has great views , food was fresh and interesting.
spray with mosquito repellant before you go!
