We had dinner three times in this restaurant, following the same pattern of dining on each occasion. We started with a superb selection of antipasti dishes. This was followed by three different pasta dishes. Main courses were typical Tuscan cuisine. Desserts were amazing too, followed by Limoncello or Grappa. Great food, great atmosphere and friendly, efficient service. Highly recommended.

We were a bit disappointed by the service charge or cover charge added to our bill which were not expecting which spoilt our experience on the day. the food was fine but not exceptional

We ate here on our first night and it became impossible to go anywhere else because the staff and the food were excellent! I had a vegetarian pizza - best I've ever had. I warmly recommend this place if you want to eat well and leave with a smile on your face. Great value for money, this is where you'll... More

This was our last dinner before leaving Italy and best place we visited during holidays. Food was excellent, service was very good. Some witers can not communicate in English, but anyhow do their best to help you. Owner is host every guest and visit tables to check if everything is ok. The only issue is a parking, as there is...

We ate here most nights of our holiday as it was the best restaurant in Castellina. Tried a few others but this one never disappointed! Not only was there a huge choice of pizzas which were the best we'd tasted but all the other dishes we tried were superb too. Lobster linguine, prawn and leek risotto, the ravioli was divine....

We enjoyed a great Pizza, desert and wine. The staff were very attentive, the wine list was extensive but at the reasonable end of the scale.

My and my sisters family were touring the Chianti region from our base in Pietrafitta. Save for one rest day that we decided to stay-in our Relais, each day was a different adventure, driving to the nearby towns of Castellina, Radda, Greve, Sienna and Firenze. We owe a lot to TripAdvisor doing our own research and reading on the different... More

There are two Il Fondaccio restaurants owned by the same person, and this one is located on the outskirts of town (the other is in the center). We had a lovely experience there. Great service, delicious food, wonderful setting. The owner was there ensuring that the guests were well looked after. The pizza is large and can be shared.

First of all, I think this restaurant offers some of the friendliest service I've had at any eatery in Italy. We ate there several times during our stay in the area, and the service was consistently helpful and fun. There is a wonderful antipasti bar that allows that you to select what you want from a wide variety of dishes.... More
