It is not like this place was horrible but..... After a wait that we thought might be a bit too long the waiter, who was very friendly told us that they had everything on the menu but two items. We then decided on our meal: 3 of one item and one of another with a size of spinach. The waiting... More

When we were last in Pienza a number of restaurants were closed. The staff was on vacation prior to the vacation period that a number of Italians take in August. Thus, our eating choices were somewhat limited. We ended up at the Trattoria La Buca delle Fate. Service was slow and not particularly attentive. (It is possible that one or... More

I have been at this restaurant several times in the last decades. I live abroad, but my parents have been living in the area for about 30 years, so I know very well the area and go there once every 2-3 years in average, almost every time I get back to Italy. But while Pienza is one of my favourite... More

We travel to Italy 2-3 times a year, and we've visited beautiful Pienza dozens of times. La Buca delle Fate is a restaurant with average but occasionally interesting food; it's one of the places where the town workers and other locals eat. Nothing fancy and very affordable, it’s often very full, so stopping by at lunch to make a dinner... More

Very popular with visitors and locals, so very busy with numerous different rooms and alcoves filled with happy customers. wonderful local specialities and local wines either by the bottle or the jug! Very drinkable at 6 € a litre, you can afford to enjoy the wonderful ambience and friendly service.

We'v been traveling through Italy for 11 days and la buca delle fate was no doubt the best restaurant we ate in. We stopped in pienza for no special reason, and found the place by an advice from a local. The beef steak was amazing, and the ragu pasta was just as great. Above al that the service was good...

We have been here a few years back and still like it. Of the restaurants right in Pienza this is the best for an authentic Tuscany meal. The food was very good and the price fair. The husband and wife are very nice and pleasant. It is a very smaill place (about 5 tables) and is open non-stop (most other... More
