We very much enjoyed our pizza and pasta lunch at Baldovino however we were disappointed with the poor service. We started by sitting outside but decided to move inside after almost 30 minutes had passed without seeing a waiter. Unfortunately things didn't get much quicker...More

Loved their scoglio pasta. So good and pizza's great. Spaghetti was good, too. Always packed. Price was just right. Overall, my family loved it! Will definitely come back.

Casual, relaxed place for lunch or dinner. We were told to make reservations, but probably not necessary. There are a few outdoor tables. Food was good, authentic. Adequate meal, nothing special to note.

Good food and very friendly staff. Nice place to enjoy well deserved pause after long walk through the city. The wine could have been cold though.

Thanks Austra, we don't know if you had White or Red Wine but Red wines should be served warmer, at "room temperature". We hope to see you again. Best Regards

Went there today at the recommendation of our tour guide. The food was more than adequate and not priced over the top given it's proximity to the Santa Croce church and square. The lasagne was very tasty as was the pizza. Variable service has cost...More

the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
