Went yesterday 27 may with my family to this pretty affordable place to have a nice dinner, we where surprised for the great location and the well rich assortment of starters, but I must admit 1st and 2nd courses where absolutely excellent too! Grazie mille to the accommodating stuff,besides lovely tasty cakes too !
For us it is a must came back!!!!

I am back here again since a while and i must admit it is the best place in Certaldo Alto to have a right full meal.
Great service, today by Antonio, who was extremely patience with my very demanding friends...
Excellent food and wine selection

I'm fairly sure the restaurant had an off day with a staff member (or two) off.

The location and menu look perfect. In fact the location alone could potentially be worth five stars. Near the top of Old Certaldo, it is a terrace over looking the valley below with a pergola giving shade from another blisteringly hot day.

Service unfortunately was very slow indeed. It was well over half an hour to get drinks and that was only after prompting. Starters were another half hour. Even when the mains for lunch had all finished and we stayed for desert, the time take was too long. There weren't any happy faces on the diners that day.

When the food did arrive - it was very good.

But for the price, oh dear...

Buonasera, grazie della sua visita, ci spiace tantissimo che non sia stato soddisfatto del nostro locale. La ringraziamo per quanto ci ha segnalato,ne faremo tesoro per migliorarci. Forse ha trovato una giornata particolarmente caotica dato il grande afflusso della clientela o forse sotto organico, non possiamo saperelo visto che non viene indicato quando è stato da noi. Se vorrà darci un'altra possibilità, saremo felici di accoglierla di nuovo.

Follow the positive reviews we were lucky enough to book a table on Sunday night.
As family we are always scared about not found anything to eat for our kids but with great surprise our 7 and 9 YO really enjoy both the pasta dishes that has been ordered.
I share a massive 1.2kg of T-bone steak with my wife, was to die for.
Service was on top as well as a nice bottle of Brunello that we had with our meal.
