This place advertises itself for pizza and local specialties. When we arrived for lunch the advertised pasta special of the day was not available (and no substitute was available). In the warm weather we did not feel like lasagna, and so there was no other substantial lunch offering. We ended up ordering the bufala mozzarella with tomato and basil, and... More

Dear Smabroad, During the day our kitchen closes at 14:30, but unlike other restaurants, we do offer the opportunity to eat in the afternoon with our "light menu". Obviously this is a limited menu than the regular ones for lunch or dinner and we are sorry if it didn't reach your expectations. Regards, Fernanda & Claudia, Le Titolari More

The cafe was full to overflowing on a weekday, mostly with locals but the wait staff produced more chairs and made space to fit us in. Service was a bit slow , but we were not surprised as very busy. Great pizza ( but beware they are enormous !) and yummy gelato on a casual lunch.....what's not to like!, would... More

We ate outside, under large parasols as in August it was very hot! Good choice of food, we were with a toddler who enjoyed a pizza and some fruit.

Mid afternoon visit with a group of eight. They were offering a light menu with about eight items. Our group had no problem picking out something that they liked. Food came out very quickly and was very tasty.

We ate at Lo Sfizio Di Bianchi 3 times during our recent stay in Gaiole. Each time the food and the service were excellent. We didn't sample starters so can't comment as we saved ourselves for puddings on each occasion. They certainly looked good though. For main courses we tried a variety of pizzas, the suckling pig, the tagliata di... More

Have visited Lo Sfizio every year for the past 7 years whilst on holiday and have never been disappointed. Can recommend the ravioli with truffle oil as well as the pasta with zucchini flowers sausage and saffron. Situated in the middle of the village the staff are friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit.

The restaurant is in the centre of a charming piazza in Gaiole. Four of us dined and lunched here (at the beginning and end of two of us doing the Eroica cycle tour) and we enjoyed everything we ate. It looks from the outside that they only do pizza, but we ate pasta dishes, and grilled meat. Then for lunch... More

Gaoile is a great little village and worthy of a visit. Lo Sfizio has a wonderful selection of pizzas with an amazing charcoal version (do try it) but many of the other dishes are average rather than superb. Service is good and it works well for families with small children.

This is a great spot for lunch or dinner when in Gaiole. We love a visit here. The staff are friendly and the food well priced and tasty. Our favourite dish is the pasta with truffle oil with a side order of spinach sautéed in olive oil with garlic. Sadly on our last visit neither was on the menu (devastated).... More

In addittion to great food their homemade gelato is outstanding. On the pastas we think the ravioli with truffles is a must and the lasagna is also great as it comes sizzlung to the table.

Description
From 1965 In the heart of Chianti, The Sfizio Bianchi offers the possibility to rediscover specialties that represent the classical flavours of Tuscan gastronomy. In a warm and hospitable place everyone can tickle the palate with genuine dishes and the true flavour of home- cooked meals, or taste an ice -cream in the main square, which was once a major marketplace between Siena an Florence Master bakers for forty years, we have the pleasure to offer our customers indulge pastries and cakes and also a delicious thin and crispy pizza both for lunch and dinner. All this served with an inevitable glass of red wine.
