I am a pizza lover and I must say that the pizza at Cappellaccio was pretty damn good! I went with a friend who knew the place and we shared a pizza. They are huge and honestly, it's very good quality price. The crust was exquisite and the pizza was nicely garnished. We also had the octopus with potatoes, onions... More

If you come from the US, don't expect the an American pizza, these are loaded with condiments but not overloaded, the dough actually has a great taste and it's better served with a local beer. That is how the Italians eat their pizza. Please use your hands, get a slice, fold, and eat it from the center. Once you are... More

Il Cappellaccio is a wel known pizza place in Castagneto Carducci. We go there at least every year and we like their huge pizzas and the friendly welcome of the waitresses. This time (Aug 18th) our experience has been spoiled by the presence of too many dogs in the dining room (we counted at least 4 or 5 in a... More

Very large pizza not so bad but difficult to eat. Service is poor and people are not very friendly. Not the worst place to go but far from the best specially for the lack of welcoming and quality service.

This is definitely one of the best places to eat! We were amazed by delicious food and big portions. And they offer much more than just tasty pizzas. We ordered spaghetti with sea food and antipasto - octopus with potato, tomato and onion. If you are looking for something like that, this is just the place for you. Besides, prices... More

As we already were informed by friends that the pizza's are huge (+/- 60cm diameter), we ordered only 2 for 4 persons. We ordered one Margharita and one with grilled vegetables. Especially, the pizza with grilled vegetables was very wet, not crispy at all and the cheese was more like chewing gum. Not to be ordered by me again. When... More

We tried a little bit of everything here. They are famous for their huge and tasty pizzas, but we would like to suggest you to not exceed with it, because they also have many other nice dishes to try, like gnocchi al tartufo, tagliolini all'astice or those lovely bruschette with tomatoes and mushrooms. Price is ok for what you are... More

They may not make the best pizza you'll ever eat in Italy, and this may not be the rest restaurant you go to, but Il Cappellaccio will certainly provide you with the best value imaginable for a really tasty, satisfying meal. That's why I give it five stars. Sometimes, when you're on vacation and you've had a long and busy... More

They serve very extraordinary big pizza! Make a big pizza it's easy, make the biggest and the most tasteful pizza it's hard! Cappellaccio make the second one! The restourant serve also other things but I always order pizza, it's always full so you shold do a reservation by calling them!
