Charming countryside restaurant

We spent a week in Sienna and this was one of the recommended restaurants for the area. This restaurant lives up to its' trip advisor review. It was elegant, the food was good and the wine was quite nice. Be aware that it is animal friendly.

So to be totally honest, for various reasons, I normally try to steer clear of any restaurant that is ranked #1 on TA. But, for a slew of other various reasons, my husband and I ended up eating here, and since our experience was so great, and there may be others out there, who, like me, try to steer clear... More

I have dined at this restaurant several times over the past several years on my trips to Tuscany and I am never disappointed. The Bistecca Fiorentina is excellent as well as the fried zucchini flowers and porcini mushrooms, depending on the season. The ambiance is very charming and the staff is wonderful.

We were recommended to visit this restaurant and we weren't disappointed. It's tucked away on a little square - quite a steep walk up from the car park but worth it. The food was excellent - I had spinach and ricotta ravioli with sage butter sauce which was really good. The waiting staff do not all speak English but this... More

What a superb place to eat, there is a wine-bar next door and the setting is gorgeous. The service was excellent our waitress really deserves to be acknowledged and she chose a wonderful Montalcino red to go with dinner. The pinci with rooster sauce was delicious, the meat came cooked exactly as ordered and melted in the mouth and dessert... More

We went to il Leccio last december with friends from Montalcino. The location is very charming in the small hamlet of Sant'Angelo in Colle (still in Montalcino). The restaurant itself is also beautiful within an ancient building restored with attention to details etc. Food was excellent - which is the most important part of course!

The absolute highlight of the meal was the poached pear in red wine sauce. The sauce was phenomenal - tasted like wine, but without the acidity.

We found it on tripadvisor, tried it and returned the day after. If you are looking for a perfect tuscan food experience, this is the place: we had Pici with Cockerel ragout, Pici with Bacon and Kale, a great antipasto toscano and Ribollita Soup. Don't miss their wine: delicious!

We had the Bruschetta with tomatoes, Bistecca Fiorentina with spinach and roasted potatoes and a Brunello. The food was fantastic and the service was very good. Great location in the center of an old medival village.
