Highly recommended. Ate there twice in the course of a week. Not cheap but really lovely Tuscan food - well executed and imaginative. Service was friendly and efficient. I particularly liked the chocolate tagliatelle with wild boar ragu- there was a subtle taste of chocolate in the pasta which made it particularly interesting.

We ate here our first night in Italy. I think it will be hard to top this one. For starters, I had the beef carpaccio with truffles. I seriously thought I had died and gone to heaven. My entree was pasta with mushrooms and truffle. Again, I devoured the dish. I a not a dessert eater, but had the nougat... More

We were finishing our tryp in Tuscany and spent one night at Relais Palazzo del Capitano in San Quirino D'Orcia. They had invited us to have a dinner there and we loved it. Great food, nice and fair wine listing and the tiramissu (dessert) was the best choice to close the night. Oh, they have a lovely staff and always... More

We have just finished our dinner at Al Vechio Forno and waiting for the gelatoso to reopen. This restaurant was the best of our two week trip in Italy. The courtyard setting was nice,the service great and the food excellent. Too bad we are leaving tomorrow, I would have liked to dine here again.

We enjoyed a delightfully prepared and presented lunch with excellent house wine, sitting outside in their shady garden restaurant. Slightly pricy but a lovely ambience, good food, and a charming owner with an even more charming golden retriever dog!

We were staying at Casa Lemmi and wandered down Via Dante Alighieri looking for a place for dinner in the mediaeval town, when we say some large candles burning alongside a wall up a side street. We followed the lights round the corner and found the courtyard of the Trattoria Al Vecchio Forno, belonging to the Palazzo del Capitano Hotel.... More

We had a lovely meal with great food at this Tuscan restaurant. Service was faultless and the atmosphere outside very pleasant. Our only quibble is the price... More expensive than other local restaurants with no apparent reason for it.

Had lunch and dinner here 4 times during our stay near San Querico and each time had something different and delicious, received very good friendly service and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience Would definitely recommend this restaurant should you be in this wonderful area of Italy

Great food, we had 3 courses each and it was all good, desserts were amazing (luckily the waiter suggested us to look at the dessert list as we wouldn't have otherwise). Very nice atmosphere as well in the garden. Only downside was the slow service (perhaps understandable considering the restaurant was full). A bit pricey but overall worth the money!
