We ate here last year whenwe walked to Castagneto Carducci from our campsite and loved it so wanted to return this year as we had enjoyed it. Unfortunately it was fully booked the 1st night we visted the town but we made a reservation for the next night and got their last table.

Was quite quiet when we 1st arived but that meant that the food arrived quickly and was very good qulaity indeed. As many do we ended up taking some leftovers back with us for the next day.

Had a lovely bottle of local red from Bolgheri too.

Would go again

We had not booked, got a table only inside which was ok however when filling up got very hot despite the fans. The service was ok, the Pizzas are of average quality, relatively thick base (for my taste) and about double the size of a normal plate... That seems to be the unique selling point of the place, but it did not make much sense to me. We made the best of it and took doggy bags home (as most people seemed to do) to then warm up an average Pizza the next day. I personally would prefer a great Pizza at normal size... Other than that, the place is always more or less full, so many people don't seem to bother.
Location is very central, wine selection basic, no views.

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 and cherry tomatoes. Gosh that was good! The restaurant was packed and it shows how successful they are. Very friendly service as well. Yours to try!

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 done, sip your beer, and repeat.

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 room of 10 tables!!!).
What a pity.....
