Tiny and hidden in a small street - one could hardly imagine a smaller streeet in such a small town but still. Wine was great, we sat outside, but the inside was also very cosy.

On a biking trek, we stopped here for lunch and it was a meal and experience I won't forget. There is a lot of delicious food in Tuscany, but this spot epitomizes the small town hospitality and traditional cuisine of this region. Everything we had was delightful.

An unpretentious taverna with great cheese, ham and wine. Nice atmosphere, great service. Fantastic place for lunch. We wished we had time to eat there more. Highly recommended.

An small place with interesting suggestions of antipasti for harmonizing cheese and wine. The owners are attentive.

Stopped for an early evening drink here and was so impressed with the hospitality. My husband had the Principessi beer, which had a lovely flavour, and I wanted to try a local white wine. The owner helpfully explained the characteristics of each and the one I chose was delicious and perfectly chilled.

We stopped for a snack and a glass of wine and had a fabulous array of cheeses with a sauce for each cheese. The cheeses ranged from soft to hard and young to old. Absolutely delicious as was the wine. The place is simple but picturesque as we sat in a quaint cobblestone street. Very nice service with a smile.

Such a lovely little bar (they call it a bar) and overwhelming hospitality! That alone was worth the visit. We went there for a quick lunch and got our delicious bruschettas. My wife happened to have a mouth ulcer and preferred to have salad (which they don't have on the menu). No problem! After learning about our little difficulty, our... More

Came here on a day trip and read about the taverna here on Tripadvisor. Can only second all ther other reviews here, the place serves up the most amazing cheese bruschettas and other nibbles. Did not eat anywhere else in Pienza but can hardly imagine any better place for a nice, simple and tasty lunch. Staff was also very nice... More
