My wife and I along with her sister and husband had the joy of visiting this beautiful town and stayed in the area for several days. We were given this restaurants recommendation by our local innkeeper and we enjoyed it so much we are there twice. The seating is very small and Antonio, the proprietor welcomes everyone. The food varies... More

Food & service is excellent. Owner is friendly & happy to oblige all requests. Probably the best unpretentious restaurant in the area.

A tiny place in Pienza with the perfect Italian food! Each dish in this paradise place is delicious and made with such love and care! Thanks to Antonio for amazing food! the best that we have eaten during our 10 days vacation in Italy!

Not a place to go if your surroundings matter more than the food. Its such a tiny place we hesitated......but wanting real food rather than affectation we went for it and were totally blown away. I have never tasted tomatoes so good - the bowl of salad for 6 euro would have served a family of 4 - rather than... More

Yes, 'been there done that' kind of thing but there was something about this place and food that we have been talking about it for the last few years. On this trip to Tuscany we went back to see whether it was as good as last time. Ordered practically the entire menu and every dish that came from the kitchen... More

Buca di Enea was recommended to and reserved for us by our B&B hosts at Fonte Bertusi. After strolling around Pienza (we ADORE Pienza) in the early evening, we had a nice dinner in this tiny, convivial, and fun place. Food was nice, if not spectacular. We shared a HUGE salad and a couple of secondis (my wife wanted the... More

We were visiting Pienza as part of our 10 day trip to Italy. It was around 5 o'clock and most restaurants were shutting down until 7pm. We stumbled upon La Buca di Enea and it turned out to be one of the best dining experiences of our trip. The restaurant is small and only seats about 20 people. The owner-chef-waiter... More

This small place tucked in a side street of Pienza was excellent! We ate both lunch and dinner here and enjoyed the different Crostoni and Bruschetta plates as well as the pasta dishes. The owner goes out of his way to make you feel welcome with his little "extras" and friendly banter.

This little BRUSCHETTERIA is off the the Main Street. It is worth searching for and is on Via Della Buca. There aren't many tables. It is warm and intimate with family pictures on the wall. The owner, Antonio, is friendly and accommodating. They had 4 choices of bruschetta. I'm sure that all are good but the tomato, garlic, oil version... More
