The Italian word 'Pieve' signifies a small rustic chapel and accompanying buildings. La Pieve at Poggio alle Mure near Montalcino in Southern Tuscany fits this description to a T. Tucked away alongside an unpaved road that runs through the vineyards of the Montalcinese Brunello, the settlement has a serene and sequestered air. The very stones that form the courtyard reek...

Had a fantastic lunch at La Pieve with the family. Menu varied enough to keep everyone happy and the quality of the food excellent. Staff extremely welcoming and a good wine list to pair with the delicious food.

Prepare yourself for a great meal! They advertise a buffet on their web site but in 6+ years coming here we have never seen it and always ordered a la carte from the menu. The service is top notch as is the food. They have a wonderful covered outdoor area when the weather is not too hot. It is a... More

I have enjoyed several meals at this wonderful restaurant in the Tuscan countryside during the last few years that I visited Tuscany. The food for both lunch and dinner is excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is also a nice place to have a glass of wine sitting at a table outside the enoteca in the... More

We love the location, its atmosphere, the food, the wine and the service - all very memorable. La Pieve is somewhat difficult to get to, but the place is worth it!

This place is well worth a visit- somewhere that I want to keep secret but need to shout to the world as it is more than deserved. We ate here a couple of nights ago after stumbling across it by chance and loved it so much went back tonight for our last evening in Tuscany. If you are looking for... More

We arrived around 9pm and were surprised to find not one table occupied and were duly concerned. Fortunately, we were quickly proved wrong and a beautiful meal was had. We ordered a magnum of Cerbaiona 2006 which was a dream in itself, and between us had mixed antipasto as starters, and as mains, a classic Florentine steak, a chick pea... More

We had reservations for 8 and spent a bit too much time talking to a local winemaker, so we arrived late for our reservation and, as we entered, noticed that the buffet was in the process of being cleared. No word of displeasure, no guilty looks from the host on our tardiness, just a welcome and before you knew it,... More

A perfect lunch in Tuscany on a beautiful sunny afternoon. La Pieve is absolutely beautiful. Food is excellent! Had a pesto pasta dish and wild boar meatballs with pistachios which was so flavorful. Service was excellent. Relaxing atmosphere. Had red wine from their vineyard which was wonderful. Setting is perfect.

They have a wonderful outdoor covered terrace which is fabulous when the weather is nice. High end food and service but not at all formal (jeans and sneakers are OK). Courses are not huge so you can try a wide variety and the prices are remarkably reasonable. Great wine selection . Definitely worth seeking out!
