A fine restaurant overlooking the amazing Tuscan countryside in Certaldo Alto.The stuff was very friendly. Most of us had pork with pear. Two friends had lamb but they didn't like it. It was a great pleasure for us not to be charged for the meal we didn't like. They serve a very unique tiramisu.

We had our wedding reception here last month and what can we say other than it was absolutely beautiful. The views, the food and the staff were all amazing and we couldn’t have been happier. We would just like to say a big thank you to Osteria del Vicario for making our day so perfect and we cannot wait to... More

Lavish Italian decor with brick, beams and stone work and fine wooden furnishings in authentic style. However, the food doesn't match up! Sat outside on the terrace overlooking the exceptional views of the Tuscan countryside - but despite the varied menu, the food fell short. Chicken liver pate was very strong and lacking firmness. Pork was over cooked and tough.... More

Absolutely fascinating and romantic place on the Certaldo old town (Certaldo Alto). Awesome traditional dishes with a modern twist. Probably one of the most beautiful places to dine or lunch in whole Tuscany. The view is just amazing. Prices are not the lowest in the area but you get excellent value for money! The place has also a small B&B... More

We figured we'd wait our the rain in Osteria del Vicario as it was the closest restaurant to where we were. It was lunch time and not very busy. Wow what a surprise. The view was amazing the food even more amazing. The... More

The view is simply amazing. The menu looked really exciting and we had high hopes. Unfortunately I think it must have been the chef's day off as the food was awful. The ravioli was waterlogged and the crown of lamb was sliced and cooked "well done" and not in a good way. The service was a bit hit and miss.... More

We had the joy of actually staying atop the town of Certaldo, and this restaurant with its amazing view of the country only added to the experience. My wife had the lasagnetta and I had tagliatelle. Our initial reaction to the taste of these two dishes was complete and pleasant surprise. The lasagna was on the best pesto we had... More

Giovanna is running a small hotel with a 5 star restaurant and the best view in Certaldo Alto. This is not typical Tuscan cuisine, they are using classic local seasonal ingredients with a special attention to presentation.
