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!

My family stopped at Trattoria Al Vecchio Forno en route from Rome to our hotel near Montalcino based on the recommendation from an out-of-date guide book, all that we had on hand. We were pleased to find that things were still as good at the 10 year old review promised! We enjoyed lunch in the quiet garden and appreciated the... More

We had lunch in the garden and had wonderful service. House wine was excellent and the food was plentiful. We got two cheese plates and two meat plates as our first course (there were 9 of us) but we should have ordered only one of each. It was delicious, especially the cheese, but they were quite large. The pasta courses... More

We travel to Italy 2-3 times each year, and we've visited San Quirico many times. This restaurant is located down one of the side streets in San Quirico, just off the main square. It’s cozy and cute and in winter there is a real fire going in the fireplace. The restaurant was very popular with locals and was quite crowded,... More

We have spent few days around Montalcino and if I would be asked to choose one restaurant to return it would surely be vecchio forno. although it is not a "small family run restaurant in Tuscany" what all tourists are looking for, it is very very good. Try pasta with duck and very fresh and tasty meals from the daily... More

We really wanted to love this place. We were staying at the hotel and having looked at trip advisor we booked a table right away with high hopes for a great meal. We at out in San Quirico for lunch but were so disappointed with the food at Al Vecchio Forno. The staff were excellent and the setting in the... More

This was one of those two hour amazingly delicious lunches on a lazy Sunday, where we shared a plate of Caprese salad with mozzarella dripping with freshness and unbelievably flavorful tomatoes; fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta cheese - unreal; absolutely perfectly executed picci with wild board ragout; sublime tagleatelle with porcini, despite the fact that porcini were dried and...

We came to Vitozza, and after a great walk we headed to this restaurant right in center of San Quirico. Place was empty, owners played with children inside. Still, we were welcome, put at the best table, and the food was simply irreproachable - local mushrooms soup, cozze, semifreddo - everything was delicious. And great service. Grazie mille!

Kid friendly wonderful ambiance in Tuscany. The food was amazing and their wine selection is to die for. We had an amazing experience and the food was fantastic. The tables are outdoors so you have to be okay with occasional bugs but other than that everything was wonderful.
