What a rip off! they tried to charge us extra on our bill hoping we wouldn't notice because we are tourists. We ordered only a couple of things as we were passing through Castellina for lunch, a pasta (which the pasta was still hard), a bruschetta and a couple of drinks. while in the menu it prices the pasta as...

Walked in late on a very cold evening and we were greeted with the great warmth and aroma from the wooden oven. The food and wine were terrific and so much so that we returned for another great meal with friends a day later. Highly recommended and not just for pizza lovers.

The first thing we do when we arrive in Castellina in Chianti is having a pizza at il Fondaccio! We love to sit outside in the small street (pedestrian zone), having a bottle of Chianti wine and eating a delicious pizza. Great value for money and very friendly staff.

The place is very cozy and relaxing. We felt so good to come to such warm and welcoming place after walking around town. Pizza was excellent, especially the tomato sauce. We saw how it is prepared because our table was just in front of the oven. Great local wines too. Recommend if you want to have pizza.

The food was good here - pizzas, appetizer buffet, etc. The wine list wasn't quite up to date, so we were a bit disappointed that our selected wine wasn't available. Very relaxing restaurant.

Definitely the best pizza in Castellina. It's also available as take away. Delicious "house pizza" and great quatro fromaggi.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Last time was on a Sunday and the menu was different. This time it was on a weekday but still enjoyable. A good platter of cold meats, cheeses and pizza was enjoyed by our party. Cover charge of 2.5 euros per head. People watch while you eat.

We were a little disappointed The pizza was good though not eh best we have had in Tuscany but there was a cover or service charge without anything for it! A cheap meal was certainly quite a bit more than we had budgeted or expected having read the menu

Great pizza place with a lovely cosy interior and lots of quirky items as decorations. The suitcase on the ceiling with the caps falling out is genius! Pizzas are excellent but the service is not always as good as you would want. Wide choice of pizzas, favourites being chiantigiana and contadina. Beware, they are enormous!
