We ate here twice during our stay in the area. Food was excellent. What we most enjoyed is the casual atmosphere. It is truly a local restaurant with more locals than tourists which was nice. Service was very good and the place just had a happy vibe about it that we really liked.

On our first visit in May to Castalino Florentino we visited this restaurant on three occasions and it became our favourite restaurant in the area. Their pasta and food in general is superb and hospitality second to none. When we returned to Castalino Florentino in July of course we went back to this restaurant on two occasions again to see Frederico who always gives us such a warm welcome and looks after us and makes us feel special.

We can highly recommend this restaurant when you are staying in the area as their food is excellent and you don't get better hospitality than this. Thank you to Frederico and his team once again for making us feel so welcome and for the excellent meals we enjoyed at your restaurant. We hope to see you again next year!

Just outside the Tuscan hill town of Castiglion Fiorentina is found Il Passagio the best and most consistent fish restaurant in meat crazed Tuscany. You can have a great pizza from the wood burning oven or any of the classic Tuscan specialties including bistecca, but what separates this restaurant from many others is the dazzling array of fish and its amazing consistency. We have eaten here four times over 2 years and have always had a wonderful meal. We have watched large platters of mixed fish served cold, served hot, served raw be served. We have had pasta with lobster, with mussels, with mixed shellfish, with calamari and zucchini flowers, and more simply with a sauce of over the top fresh truffles. We have had various fish, pizzas,vegetables. The wine list encompasses all Tuscany from local wine of the Cortona appellation to Brunello to super Tuscan and more humble labels all many euros less than similar served in tourist cities. Federico the part owner does everything, even making pizza when the pizza chef had to leave with an emergency. He speaks excellent English for the few tourists eating here in a place filled with locals every night. And every night is as good. Bravo Federico.

We ate here two times. We had the best pizza of our entire trip! Thin crispy crust. I agree that Fredreco was a great waiter. Attentive, very personable, spoke good English and really tried to please. Many locals.

Our waiter was outstanding! He did an excellent job translating the menu for us. Almost the entire menu! We started with the assortment of salami, followed by homemade pasta with calamari, pasta with seared tuna, rockfish with vegetables and a broiled seafood plate.
