What a great little place

Our kids (6 and 3) were getting squirrelly and I knew we had to get them food - fast. Heck, I was hungry as well. There are only about 5 or 6 tables at La Buca but we were fortunate enough to snag one and could not have been more pleased. My wife and our nanny had the cheese and... read more

The best food, the best atmosphere and wonderful hosts! Do not miss it in Pienza because you will crave to go there a second time. My husband and I are Italian (and I am from Tuscany) and were looking for a place with authentic food and vibe .... Well we found it! Anything you order here is home made and... More

We went to this restaurant based on some of the other reviews here specifically stating how gluten friendly the owners and menu were. However, our experience was VERY different. When we sat down and the menus came, we asked about gluten-free options in our best Italian (my wife and one daughter are GF). The waiter sighed and we were told... More

Don't miss the best lasagne in Italy! All 12 of us agree that this is a "can't be missed" restaurant - and they are open during siesta!

Antonio's restaurant is a small cozy place that's serves excellent food. Out of the 12 days I've been in Italy, I can honestly say that this was my number 1 choice. We only stayed in Pienza for 3 nights but we came back to eat a second time because I had such an amazing experience the first night we were... More

The pastas here are delicious and authentic. The food is made from fresh local ingredients, Antonio is also a great friendly host that went the extra mile and drove out to buy my friends and I some gelato icecream completed with waffles, whipped cream and cones all without us asking, he is just a friendly guy that wants to make...

We arrived to Pienza at 4pm today and all the restaurants were closed. We had a great salad and crostini at this restaurant. What a treat! Make sure to try the pecorini cheese!

We asked our accommodation to make a booking for us here as it's very small. We arrived and were greeted with a smile and given the best table in the house. I follow a gluten free diet which you would think would be challenging in Italy but it's been easy. I was treated to the biggest tuna, mixed salad I... More
