There will never be enough to say about this charming place, and the wonderful owners. Michela and Stephano are true gems. The service is fantastic! The pizza was incredible, along with the unmatched caprese salad!! "Il caciatorre" was a mix of meats and this incredible parmesean mousse! We had to keep coming back to this amazing place. Everything from start... More

Visited Il Pollo d'Oro with my family who are local residents. Il Pollo d'Oro is a favorite of theirs. After sampling a lot of pizza at other trattorias and osterias around Pistoia, the pizza at Il Pollo d'Oro was the best I had, a real stand out.The crust was perfectly crisp and the toppings where so fresh. We started with... More

We have family who live near Pistoia and always have at least one meal at Il Pollo d'Oro. Excellent pizza as well as antipasti. The owner speaks perfect English, and is very helpful in selecting dishes. Friendly, family-run trattoria that is casual with excellent food and service. Highly recommend!

Stumbled upon this great little restaurant by chance - turned out their hostess, Michela, speaks wonderful English (which is a rare and precious quality in Italy) and the entire staff was super helpful and accommodating. My GF is lactose intollerant, which was surprisingly not a problem for them to accomodate. The pizzas were wonderfully thin, crunchy and perfectly cooked, and... More

Pizza here is super thin and tends to get burnt easily, both on the crust (equally thin and hardly attractive) and on the bottom. Napoli pizza is crammed full with anchoives, rendering an hyper-salty outcome. Only one type of beer available.
