My wife and I ate lunch at this little restaurant and had the best meal of our trip so far. The mushroom flan and cheese and spinach filled ravioli dishes were outstanding. The wine list was extensive and the little town of Sant Angelo beautiful. Only a short drive from Montalcino.

This delightful restaurant outside of Montalcino felt like a hidden gem. There is a great outdoor seating area in this charming little town. An appetizer of mushroom flan in a cream sauce was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had anywhere, and the ravioli I had was also excellent. There is a wide range of wine available with tremendous...

We took a day long wine tour to Montalcino from San Gimignano on September 16, 2014 with Marialouisa with My Tuscan Wine and Tours. She chose this wonderful restaurant for our lunch and I'm so glad she did! She arranged a tasting lunch so rather than just each of us having a couple of selections we all had nice portions... More

We had a great meal here sitting on the terrace with great views, awesome wine and so close to the church bells for an extra bit of atmosphere. Also bought a lovely bottle of Brunello from the wine shop next door. Well worth a visit

We took a wrong turn and ended up in this small town. Trattoria Il Leccio was the only place we saw other people and since we were lost anyway, we decided to stop and eat lunch. What a twist of fate! This is easily now our favorite restaurant, favorite meal(s), favorite memories of our whole time in Tuscany! We came... More

This is one of the finer restaurants in the area. Out of the way in a charming village. Well worth the visit if you enjoy great cuisine and wine

There was nothing bad that came to our table, but everything struck us as a little unimaginative and simple. Not simple in the "let the ingredients shine" way but simple in the "I don't even remember what I just ate" way. All in all, it wasn't bad, but I wouldn't entirely recommend it.

When you visit Montalcino, drive away from the tourist restaurants and go to Sant'Angelo in Colle. Il Leccio is a very good trattoria with a superb local wine list and excellent Tuscan cuisine. Try the antipasto della casa with salami, ham & cheese then try their "Pici" or fettuccine...all VERY good. They serve also excellent fried lamb chops...great salads and... More

Great atmosphere with awesome food! Order the Asparagus Flan appetizer and Ravioli. We went back 2 nights in a row so that I could have another one all to myself. Our waitress recommended one of the local Brunello wines that was fabulous!! Sunsets are amazing up on this hill. Very romantic
