I've been eating in number of restaurants in Tuscany - this one was a big disappointment. I knew it's going to be expensive but expected great food as well, it was only expensive. The disappointed started with what was supposed to be a simple dish - vegetables with Parmesan cheese for 9Euro - There were no vegetables just CHICORY -ENDIVE... More

We stopped for lunch at this upscale appearing restaurant in little Monteriggioni. The food was jut okay but the service was terrible. We had to wait at least 45 minutes after we had asked for il conto (the bill). The place was busy but not overly so. The waiter was a short, rude, bald man who bore a distant resemblance... More

Now, saying this is the best restaurant in Monteriggioni is not difficult. There's only 2 restaurants in the village! But when choosing one, I suggest Il Pozzo (which means The Well). Don't be deceived by their outdoor seating. At first glance, the other place looks to be the best for seating but Il Pozzo has a hidden garden in the... More

This is in a lovely fort and they had seating in an out door setting. Upon arrival we were received by a very rude waiter (bald gentleman) who barked at us in response to everything that we asked. Menu was given and the order was not taken for over 30 minutes. The waiters were busy walking up and down doing... More

Excellent upmarket restaurant and lovely owner. Wide choice of dishes and wines. Excellent choice of table locations - garden, overlooking square or inside the historic building. One of the waiters has a strange manner, seeking to be highly refined and upmarket, but doesn't come off and could be off putting to some?

In the middle of Monterrigioni (although it is so small, anything is 'in the middle'...) you can find this lovely restaurant. It has a small covered garden which offers a nice spot in the shade to enjoy lunch (or dinner). Classic Tuscan dishes, try the tortellini with tartufo, fresh prepared and if you're with kids the quick service is a... More

Love this place. My six year old is a huge fan of the Pappardelle Chinghalie!! The courgette flowers are wonderful. And you can get very good wine by the glass. Great service too. Consistently high standards. Looking forward to next year already.

This place was in our travel guide rather than a personal recommendation. The food was very good indeed especially for a place which probably doesn't get a lot of repeat business and is right on the main (or only!) square of a tiny hill town. The quality and flavours were excellent and the service mainly good, although a heavy downpour... More

The approach to Monteriggioni on the Raccordo Autostradale Firenze-Sienna is as breathtaking as the meal you're about to have at Il Pozzo. A trip to Tuscany wouldn't be complete without lunch at there. For the past 25 years we've been going out of our way to enjoy their simple dishes, exquisitely prepared. The pasta, boar and lamb never fail to... More

We cannot go to Monteriggioni without paying a visit to the Pozzo. Location is great, within the medieval walls of this very small town. Service is good, the food never disappoints. It is relatively expensive, but you get what you expect to get: good food, good wine, good service. If you want to avoid to be surrounded by tourist, don't... More
