Great experience!

The food, prices and service was great for our Saturday lunch. Even with a full house, we never felt crowded or ignored. The food was great with plenty of local dishes to choose. Prices were very reasonable!

This restaurant doesn't have a noticeable sign outside and it would be easy to walk right by it except for the people going in and out. It is actually quite huge inside. The menu had many great choices, I really loved the pasta with wild boar sauce and my hubby enjoyed the wild boar stew. The service was excellent, the... More

This restaurant offers a varied menu and the food was excellent. Friendly, efficient service. We noticed that it is frequented by many local diners in addition to tourists.

In the heart of Pienza is this great restaurant that has amazing food with extremely reasonable prices. They make their own pasta, called pici..you have to try it. Also, they have good house wine that is only 6 euro for a liter. The waitress was very nice and welcoming as she helped make our experience so enjoyable. The three of... More

Homemade gnocchi fab... Pork dishes also great. The poor waiters looked shattered and with only two waiting staff for all the tables I'm not surprised! Wine ok but not exceptional. 8 of us ate for €205 so not bad but not as good as other places in the same.

We stopped here because they offered gluten free pasta and we were super impressed!! It's a cozy place, clean and basic. The homemade pasta is fabulous and at 8€ a plate it's hard to beat. The 6€ house wine and the 10€ steak were steals. Everyone loved their meals! Definitely worth a stop!!

Trattoria La Buca delle Fate offers good, authentic tuscan food. Our party enjoyed three different homemade Gnochi's (the wild boar sauce was the favourite, although the Bolognese was also tasty) as well as Pecorino al Forno, Guinea Hens and Wild Boar stew. All of our meals were hearty, tasty and filling. Service was friendly and unobtrusive and the meal was... More

On a recent 16 day trip throughout Tuscany, we stopped here on a recommendation from a couple we had met in the Uffizi in Florence. What a great recommendation! The restaurant was packed with primarily locals - apparently families that gather for Sunday dinners. It was most enjoyable to have some really good local wine and watch the huge platters... More
