We were in this small town for the New Year's and our host recommended this place. It was just within walking distance so ti was convenient for us. Good thing we had reservations as it was packed. I had the grilled pecorino served with a poached pear and pear jam. It was delicious -- just the right balance of sharpness... More

A small family group looking for a "special" place to top off a Christmas vacation outing. The Fontanella was suggested by several people in San Casciano and we decided to try it . Parking across the street was convenient and luckily we were able to find a table even with no reservation. The exterior doesn't prepare you for the warm,relaxed... More

Had dinner there last night as a group of 7. All starters were enjoyed. A couple had soup and the rest mostly pasta. My tortellini was great. I had steak tartare which was good. Everyone else enjoyed their main meal. Good service and extensive wine list. Overall a pleasant restaurant and worth visiting.

Food was great, fresh, hand made pasta is incredible. We went there 3 times for dinner during our 14 days holiday in San Casciano. Loved starters and first courses, not crazy about the meats they offer (unless it is a "bistecca fiorentina"!!!). Good wine selection. Price was reasonable, only the evening we had the "bistecca" the bill was higher then... More

The restaurants in the San Casciano dei Bagni area are all over priced due to the presence of the Fonteverde resort. Atmosphere is nice, service was good; food was mediocre to good but very overpriced. Dinner for two (with no pricey ingredients) with 2 glasses of house wine (nothing special) was over €90.

We stopped on our walk back to Fonteverde from the village. Maybe because we were the first two guests for lunch on a quiet Tuesday, we had our choice of table and were well served by the only waiter in evidence, who was fluent in English. I had home made pasta with local pork sauce (perfect). Madam had a platter... More

Good option if you are staying in the area however the night we ate there lacked atmosphere as we were the only ones eating outside. Food very good. Well cooked, good wine. Would recommend.

If you are looking for somewhere cosy for a Sunday lunch, a romantic meal or family celebration, you can't go past La Fontanella. Family run and beautifully decorated, you are always welcomed with big smiles and plenty of hospitality. Work your way through the menu with more than one meal here or you will feel like you have missed out.

Visited based on a lot of positive comments when we stayed in Fonteverde resort. Nice restaurant - I believe the best in the area. But I was not impressed neither with the food nor with the service. There was one waiter serving all the people around, she could not physically be attentive to all the customers, we saw her twice... More
