My wife and I always stop in to this wonderful, casual and welcoming Pizzeria when visiting Chianti. Mama comes out of the Kitchen with a big kiss and smile for all. The pizza is authentic Naples style and all the food is prepared just right with love.

Based on other comments it appears we were pretty lucky. We stopped here for lunch and ordered a pizza. The waiter (? owner) took our order without any problem. We did not have to wait very long for the food to arrive. The pizza was good but average tasting compared to other places.

All round a pretty poor and disappointing experience. Went for lunch and had pizza and tomato salad. Owner was pretty rude and had to wait an hour for 2 pizzas with only four other tables in the restaurant t the time. No word of an apology just came over and barked Italian a few times. I tried to pay at... More

After walking past on two successive lunchtimes and seeing how busy this little restaurant was my wife, daughter and I booked to eat at I' Galletto Briaco one evening. Having booked based purely on the location and the terrace seating we became worried when we subsequently checked out the TripAdvisor reviews. We needn't have worried. The manager served us and...

If you want to wait two hours to get a poor quality pizza and being insulted when you are nicely asking : "is there any chance to get my pizza any time soon ?"and you want to share the bill and pay with two credit cards, it's your choice but be aware, the nervous owner want to call the carabinieris...

We regularly go here as the pizzas and food are consitently good. The location and terrace is great. What stops a toprating is the propretors inconsistent mood. You never know if he is going to be really grumpy or nice. Some times we have heard loud yelling from the kitchen. All this is unfortunate as all other things are great.

On a first floor, so a little hard to find but with parking. We sat by the balcony, where some people just stared at us as we sat down. The menu came out, and we really wanted pizza, as you would in Italy. When we asked for the pizza, the man said "NO. Pizza only in the evening. That's how... More

We wandered into this place for an evening meal early July. It was a hot summer evening and the elevated tables overlooking the town were gorgeous. We had the sun in our eyes but it quickly went leaving a lovely setting with flowers all around. The food was well prepared, I had the special - Drunken rooster. A whole bird... More

The service at this restaurant was the most unfriendly that we have experienced during our week in Italy. Advertising Pizza it transpired that Pizza is actually only available in the evening. How hard would it be to put that in the menus rather than having to "bark" at your guests that Pizza is only available in the evening I wonder.... More
