One of the best meals we had on our 5 week European trip. We both had pasta and I had the house wine. We ate at several Tuscan restaurants during our nine day stay and I would highly recommend this restaurant. The view is just beautiful. People seemed really friendly. I bought a bottle of chianti here and can't wait... More

My wife and I ate here on our first night-just stumbled in. We sat on a terrace with a wonderful view. Sadly, it started to rain. The staff was very helpful getting us situated in the downstairs area, which was very rustic looking. The pasta was excellent, my lamb was done well and wife had chicken which she really liked.

We had dinner on the terrace at Osteria del Borgo, which has a stupendous view. We ordered an excellent wine, which was properly served (this wine needs time exposed to air to gain its best flavor). However, the food left a bit to be desired. We had the pici in ragu. Pici is a type of very thick spaghetti and... More

We arrived early for lunch and sat outside on the terrace with a wonderful view. The pasta dishes were excellent and the recommended wine was even better. The staff were all bi-lingual and very friendly.

The food was like something your nonna would make. Home styled food with great flavour, we especially loved the herbed chicken and house wine. You could try many wines by the glass if you wanted ,and the staff were very knowledgeable about the various wines on offer. Very friendly people.

We chose this spot at the top of the hill as it had so many wines by the glass on offer (yes all local). The menu was varied and what we had was superb. The staff all very busy, were always engaged and interested to recommend the wine and anything else

We went here with a group of friends while visiting Tuscany, based on a recommendation from our tour guide. Once we saw the breathtaking views, we were determined to eat there. I ordered the tomatoes and mozzarella, pici pasta with tomato sauce, and a glass of Vino Nobile wine (can't remember the exact maker). The food was okay but the... More
