Good restaurant within a short walk of the Hotel dei Capitani, tucked away down steps off the main street. It was recommended to us, but did not live up to the expectations. Welcome was warm and the waiters though not to talkative were efficient. Wine list that is one of the biggest we’ve had. However we were recommended the Brunello... More

And this doesn't mean the food is bad, just that it's not what a Tuscan is used to - for instance the 'pici all'aglione' served in this place have nothing to do with the real plate: pachino and garlic in big pieces, cooked not long enough and missing the real taste. In the restaurant we were the only Italuan couple... More

This was recommended by Rick Steves and the recommendation was absolutely right. We stopped here for lunch in a little cozy place on a weekday afternoon. I had one of my best meals of our two week visit to Italy. It was beef cheeks in a montalcino sauce that was to die for. The sauce was rich, very rich, and... More

The place is a lovely Tratoria where you can taste the very rich local food, carefully prepared. We went for lunch and started with delicious crostate (tosted bread and excellent sauce) and had a Spaghetti al Ragu, it was fabulous. They also make a very tasty one on garlic sauce. Eating at Brunello di Montalcino means drinking Brunello wine. At... More

We decided to stop in for a late lunch. We were seated promptly and started to review the menu. Three of us had the shell pasta with sweet peas, pancetta and red pepper. It was great. Another choice was pasta with mushrooms and truffle oil. Also, very good. My husband's choice was sausage and white beans. I thought it had... More

This place is off the main road down the hill... Go find it because the food is really good and the atmosphere is wonderful. I will tell you the place gets crowded so you might need to wait. And this is not a place that moves the people through quickly. This is Italy, and the service is not fast...we went... More

Had rabbit for the first time in my life (I liked it). Nice relaxed atmosphere and very reasonably priced.

We ate here one lunchtime, and ended up booking for dinner the next day. I'd say it was probably the best Italian food I've ever had and I've been to Italy a lot over the years... Plus we loved the atmosphere - cute, romantic and cosy. I'd definitely recommend the bruschetta (best I had in Italy during the week I... More

My wife and I ate here twice during our ten days in Southern Tuscany. It is off the street down a few steps so you have to be looking for it. They offer a great wine list, almost encyclopedic in size. The service is great and friendly and everything is overseen by Luciano the Magnificent! Try the tagliatelle ai funghi... More

the waiters here were not particularly chatty, but the food was great. Seemed quite popular. We didn't have to reserve.
