The service was very good and they made the kids pasta and sausages with tomato sauce. My fish ravioli was just ok and my husband's Quattro stagioni pizza was just ok. The olive oil was ok - and not very nice.

This is the only restaurant in El Merlo. It is a short drive from the center of Casole d'Elsa and a walk or a shorter drive from the Hotel Aquaviva where we stay. The restaurant has now been handed down to the 'children' and is still delicious with many many selections on the menu and every thing is home made... More

Great Restaurant! We passed by on a Saturday afternoon while on the drive f=down to La Maremma . I just love the local restaurants and this one did not disappoint. They were preparing for a big party but took us anyway. The service was excellent. The menu was vast and we ordered too much as all seemed so yummy! We... More

I great pizza restaurant with lots to choose from. The price was very reasonable and the portions were generous, we read on a previous review about being served scissors with our pizza and it was so cool. I would recommend this place for a cheap evening out with a true Italian feel to it

Not good, helpings way too large, mushrooms on my pizza out of a tin, couldn't taste the difference in the cheeses on my Quatro Formagio (4 cheese) very sloppy, my mothers dish would have fed an army.

We were shocked to be told that Vincenzo has retired (well deserved!), but Il Merlo's standards are being maintained by the new owner. The food is still fresh, well-cooked and presented following a very welcome complimentary glass of Prosecco. We look forward to our next visit.

2 years since we last came , we drove past Il Merlo on our way in from the airport and booked for our first night.

We stayed in a villa in Casole d'Elsa for a week and came here 3 times - all were good both in terms of the value a food quality. The staff are also great and they speak good English. The wild boar pappardelle is the best pasta in my mind and they make great pizza. A nice touch is that... More

From our villa near Volterra we stumbled across this very well attended local & traditional looking Italian restaurant which to our pleasing turned out to be quite superb! Greeted upon our entrance by Vincenzo we found him to be very welcoming & throughout the whole experience nothing was too much trouble. It was quite apparent that many of the local... More
