Certaldo Alto, village of Boccacio,very good local cuisine with panoramic views from their terrace in the summer and cosy indoor restaurant in the winter. But check the times in the winter, closing for a long period. They tend to open only in the spring for the evenings and saturday sunday. July & august is open every day. A place i... More

We had a great meal here when we stayed in Certaldo - we had a table in the courtyard right by the edge so we had great views out into the Tuscan hills. The food was amazing and not to bad in terms of value for money. Beautiful place to eat - we recommended it to friends who came and... More

We ate our first night here in Certaldo Alto while visiting my son, Michael who studied abroad last Fall. The food was excellent, fresh and served quickly. The views were amazing. I will definitely go back again.

This restaurant serves great food and wine and has a beautiful setting. I would have given this it a 5 star ranking but it's a shame the staff was so unfriendly. We're very tolerant people, everyone can have a bad day once in a while. However, in this place we felt really unwelcome and every question we asked seemed to... More

The food is incredible, the view is breathtaking and it is nice year round. A bit too much waiting but at least it was worth it.

During our week stay in Certaldo Alto we had two incredible dinners and highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Certaldo. Our server was outstanding and truly made our experience complete.

We visited here as a recommendation. It had the added bonus of being so close to our hotel. The food was great. I had the ravioli and my wife had the gnocchi. Both were excellent. The waitress was very busy, but did an incredible job (they had a packed house during the slow season). We ate inside because it was... More

Located in the small but beautiful Tuscan hill town of Certaldo. The service was excellent, the tables set out with style, the house wine exceptional and the food delicious. We sat on the terrace overlooking the surrounding countryside. What a great combination. Certaldo is one of the unspoilt hill towns of the region. Great location, terrific restaurant.

We ate here late in October. The menu was somewhat limited because they were winding down. We both ate some of the sausage pasta and had stomach problems the next day. Staff was friendly and food was good as we ate it. Would give them another chance.

Although we hadn't made reservations, the staff kindly and quickly accommodated our large group at a single table, and offered good service throughout the evening. While our large group may have made things a bit confusing for the staff, there was some confusion regarding who ordered what and in what order it was delivered. The food itself was very good,...
