He explained his 85 year old mother was the head of the kitchen. Dhe knows how to cook. The food was fresh and beautifulky prepared. There was also an extensive wine... More

We had lunch of a generous plate of antipasto and then pasta dishes. All was delicious and plentiful. This is one of the increasing "slow food" establishments in Tuscany and well worth waiting a little longer for the food to arrive. We arrived quite late for lunch but were nevertheless made very welcome by the staff. We would have tried... More

What can I say, I love to eat at a restaurant where the Owner describes the menu as though each dish is a piece of his heart. He loves each dish as though it was one of his children. The Owner, Jon Pierre get it. The food, service and friendly attitude was over the top! Leaving in a few day... More

This restaurant adjoins one of the best pasticceria in Certaldo. If only we had found it sooner - we would have come back for much more! The menu is bought to life by the owner, who details every entry on this diverse menu: from local meats to giant prawns and lovingly prepared fresh pasta - it has something for everyone,... More

Our last night in Tuscany and we were recommended this place by the Hotel Certaldo staff. The wine selection, all from Tuscany, was exceptional. The food was excellent with a Tuscan menu. The owner/waiter was trying hard , with bad english, to get us to try more traditional Tuscan dishes and we did and they were excellent .

La Saletta is a true authentic Tuscan restaurant. We got married in Certaldo 2 years ago & stumbled on this restaurant by accident; We immediately fell in love thanks to the great signature dishes (try the bruschetta's with liver, the onion soup (Certaldo is famous for its onions!), the rabbit stew, tonno del chianti,... - try everything!) The owner really... More

We were staying at a villa about 9Km from Certaldo. The Villa owner suggested this restaurant. The restaurant is owned by an elderly man and the chef is his mother! The restaurant is small and probably has 10 tables. Service was elegant and the food we had was wonderfully prepared. All four of us enjoyed the meal and visited the... More
