Arriving at Certaldo on a Saturday evening without a booking we were relieved to find this pizzeria and even more so when we saw the pipping hot pizza coming out from the oven at the front. This is a place for pizza and the locals seem to think so. We also tried sauté mussels and clams and they were good... More

Eating inside, so be prepared to be hot! However the food was fantastic, pizzas to die for, pasta gorgeous but huge portions. Staff lovely, chef walking around checking all is well. Very reasonable, lots of locals eating there.

Chef/Owner Tarek runs a fantastic restaurant that caters to the locals. He is a very enthusiastic and engaging proprietor. We ate there twice this year, all pastas, appetizers, desserts, wine were fantastico! We will be back next year.

We were taken here by the lovely couple who owned our rental house. Everything we ate was outstanding and the prices were so reasonable (7-10 Euros per entree). I had the Gnocchi with 4 cheese sauce and I am still thinking about it a week later. The staff is so nice and accomodating. The prices will lead you to expect... More

Have been to Il Delfino da Tarek several times. Never had a bad meal. Pizza cooked to perfection n a wood burning oven. Good seafood and pasta. I really enjoy the spaghetti con vongole (clams) and zuppa di cozze appetizer (mussels in red sauce). House wine is good and reasonably priced. The waitress, Daniella, always greets us with a smile... More

The extensive menu, which also doubles as your placemat, covers everything you would expect and more. We opted for a lunch time primo piatto of spaghetti puttanesca and pomodoro (€5 each). Both portions were enormous, easily the largest primo we had over... More
