Delicious pizza full of flavour and fresh ingredients. We had a takeaway pizza and it's one of the better ones I've had. Only a tiny little miracle hut in Sri Lanka has bettered it so far!

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on New Years Eve in Chianti region since most restaurants were fully booked and we were thinking about just going back to our hotel for room service. We drove by San Donato and decided to check out this restaurant since we had a good meal last time we visited here, and it just... More

The restaurant is located in a very rustic and quiet alley, in the middle of the old city center of San Donato. Easy to reach, and beautiful surroundings. We had Christmas lunch here. The different courses were mainly fish-based, with a very traditional approach and feel. From the appetiser, to the main courses, I was delighted by the quality of... More

A very friendly and welcoming reception when we arrived and the menu was in both English and Italian. The staff were more than happy to assist and make recommendations for choosing meals. The food was AMAZING! I had the carbonara pizza and my boys shared a pizza made to order. My husband had whole fish with roasted fennel, zucchini, onion... More

A great restaurant off the beaten track...a little hard to find, but certainly worth the look. Great decor/ambiance. Cozy on a rainy night! Friendly, helpful, bilingual staff, though table service a little slow. Food was tasty and imaginative. Catered for gluten free needs. Reservations essential.

We visited here recently and went back for a second night as the pizza and the seafood was so great. Their pizza was probably one of the best we experienced through our trip in Italy. A hidden gem in a back lane in the beautiful town of San Donato. Make sure you find it. What a beautiful historic town.

We went back twice for dinner at this wonderful restaurant. Try the pecorino soufflette - it is outstanding. The lobster served over pasta is also incredible. Loved the beers they offer as well as a great selection of local wines.

Found this delightful place during a walk, on a side street in San Donato. A little of the beaten path. Tried to get in one night but full up with no reservation. So made a reservation for the following night. The menu consists primarily of pizza and seafood. I had one, my wife had the other. Loved them both. Awesome... More

We went there for a pizza and we discovered really a nice place, location and surrounding to live a piece of tuscany, where local traditions and style are mixed with italian masterpieces like the pizza! It was a real napoletanean one, good ingredients and cooking style. We got Margherita and Napoli, two classic ones to taste the basics and to... More
