We walked around the small hill top of Certaldo and came across this lovely little garden terrace restaurant. We have pizza and pasta for lunch. Food arrived promptly and was very good. They made special carbonara for my daughter. Would recommend.

Best pizza that I enjoyed while in Italy! Nice, friendly service too. I consumed the pizza with the hot salami with the rocket salad atop paired with a nice glass of local wine. I went here twice and would have gone more often but it was closed during off season and a bit too far from the school I was... More

Family and I were visiting town and this was our first stop to eat. We were very impressed with the food and enjoyed ourselves so much the first time we came back for dinner. Staff was friendly but the service was a bit slow. This may be a cultural thing but nevertheless it was slightly annoying to spend over 1.5... More

We've been in the area for a week and have really struggled to find a good meal out. This restaurant was perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful. The service was prompt and professional. The flavours were authentic and obviously home made. We both had starters, then had a lovely pasta dish and a fillet steak. Both were delicious. The... More

Had dinner with relatives at this beautiful restaurant, outside under a large tree canopy. Service was efficient, very friendly with good advice and explanation of the menu. All choices our group made turned out to be good. No haute cuisine but tasty and good value for money!

Saw other reviews and took the time to find the right place. Daughter said "Best Pizza Ever", son echoed her. Great quality pizza at reasonable price. Wish we'd found it earlier in our holiday
