Probably the best pasta I have ever tasted

Great location just outside the village, with great views across the valley, but to be honest, you wouldn't care where you were eating food this good. Really high end cuisine at pretty reasonable prices - if your staying near Montepulchiano, then you shouldn't miss this place.

This was such a memorable and outstanding lunch experience. We dined outdoors and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful view. We started with local salumis and cheeses alongside cantaloupe, the quality and presentation was optimal. My husband had the pici al ragu, which is of the area and perfectly prepared. I had the tagliatelle with a cream sauce with asparagus, ham, and... More

La Casina should be on everyone's bucket list. Unbelievable experience. The fresh taste of the melon and prosciutto mingle with the sublime gnocchi.

In the 31 days we have been in Italy it would be in the top three meals. The antipasti I had was pears , honey and percorino. Mm. Then... More

We really enjoyed the food! the place was almost empty when we got there, and we were the last couple to leave the place when they started closing it. The menu is not the typical italian menu- there are many modern dishes that are a very nice surprise to find outside the big cities. The place is a bit upscale... More

Stopped for an excellent lunch on a recent trip to Tuscany. The menu offers dishes not found on most restaurants. The food was great, the prices reasonable and the view is to die for. The restaurant is in the countryside south of Montepulciano on the road to Chianciano Terme just outside the village of Sant Albino on the right up... More

We were staying at Il Serraglio (an amazing farmhouse just outside Montepulciano). On our host's recommendation, we visited La Casina, a local restaurant. This was the most pleasant surprise of our trip to Tuscany. Not only were we extremely lucky to have found our B&B, Il Serraglio, we also discovered La Casina. The owners of this restaurant, Ricardo and Loretta... More

We were staying near by at Il Serraglio and Agriturismo. It was Sunday and we had neglected to fill up our car and could not find an open gas station. We felt that we had just enough fumes to get to the gas station the next morning. We mentioned this to our host Roberto and he called the restaurant and... More

About 8km from Montepulciano so don't look for it there although its listed there under Tripadvisor. It about 1km outside the village of Sant Albino on the way to Chianciano Terme set just off the road to the right, sigmnposted, you can't miss it. Seats about 20 inside with a nice terrance seating slightly less with a good view. A... More
