We asked the waiter for his suggestions on wine, appetizers, pizza, and gelato. He happily supplied us with his preferences and choices frequently made by the customers. It turned into an excellent meal at a very reasonable price. The other people in the restaurant were several families apparently out for a quiet Sunday dinner. They seemed to know the waitstaff well leading us to think that this is a place with a good number of repeat customers. All our food was delicious, but the gelato was extraordinary.

We ate (party of 5) at the Il Camino last week through necessity rather than choice as it appeared to be the only restaurant open in San Donato.

There is an extensive menu featuring plenty of antipasto, pasta, pizza and mains particularly if you like seafood and it helped that at least one of the waiting staff spoke good English (certainly better than my Italian) so he could guide us through some of the pasta sauce choices.

The starters were generally good quality and portions were a decent size. The mains were a little more hit and miss. The pizza looked good, a nice thin crust with lots of topping (they do pizza to take out) but my fillet steak was disappointing; it arrived cold and was a little on the fatty side.

We stuck to the house wine which was drinkable but not great; the three bottles we ordered all had different labels, in fact the last had no label at all.

Prices are comparable with other restaurants in the area but the overall dining experience was nowhere near the standards of the Osterietta or the Due Orsi.

If you like to taste some Italian traditional food, then Il Camino is one possibility when you are in San Donato. I often go to this place to eat pizza but sometimes I want to have aproper meal, then Il camino has a wide variety of regional foods, mainly with Tuscany/Lunigiana fingerprint.
My favorite is the spaghetti alla costa smeralda where several types of fishes are used as condiment for the pasta and then is covered with thin pizza dough, befor the cooking is finished in the oven (spaghetti al cartoccio).
It is a family business, and the owner Ugo is always there for a good suggestion, just tell him your tastes. It is not cheap but the quality has a cost.

Do not depend on the waitstaff to make correct change. yesterday we were short changed 5 euro and when we protested, the waiter acted confused and seemed to never understand he owed us 5Euro. for a bill of 24.50 we submitted 54.50 and he insisted our change was 25 Euro. They charge a table charge of 2.50 per person so we felt really cheated. It is expensive to begin with and if the waiters cant make change properly it is not wise to dine there.

I'm a regular visitor of Il Camino, some times alone and many times with my friends and colleagues. Il Camino is a real Italian cuisine, and that's the main thing which I love with Il camino. You can find many varieties of Italian dishes with comparatively affordable prices.
The restaurent atmosphere is good, especialy it's clean and very cooperative staffs are needed to be pointed out. That's why I love Il camino!!!.
