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!

Fabulous food - the only "buffet" restaurant we have eaten at in Italia. Gorgeous setting - the drive there alone is worth the trip. Impeccable service- on our" must return to" list

the only reason not to write this review, is to keep this to ourselves. This is by far the best eating experience in the Montalcino area. (We have been staying in this area for 12 years, and have tried many of the oft-reviewed restaurants, many of which are very good.) On many weekends Clara, the chef, presents a buffet dinner...
