The Osteria del Leone, as documents testify, has always been part of the life of this ancient village. Located in one of the town’s oldest houses on the corner of Via dei Mulini and the square with the thermal pool, it has four welcoming, hospitable rooms and an enclosed garden, able to seat a total of 70 people.The restaurant is characterized by a large entrance area with an antique bar, followed by three comfortable, brightly-colored rooms decorated with local nineteenth-century furniture and spacious, well-appointed tables set a reasonable distance apart, accommodating up to 40 people. In the summer, a pleasant inside garden, cool, well-kept, and protected from the elements, can hold another 30 people.The menu features flavorful typical Tuscan cooking and changes more or less monthly to keep up with the changing seasons, but always maintaining some “classics,” local specialties like the hand-rolled long strands of pasta called “pici,” served for example with garlic sauce, or perfectly grilled Florentine beefsteak, according to some connoisseurs among the best in the area. A variety of goat’s-milk and sheep’s-milk Tuscan cheeses and homemade desserts, accompanied by a nice selection of dessert wines and liqueurs, bring the meal to a close.The wine list contains about 250 labels, with a broad selection of the best Tuscan wines. Montalcino and Montepulciano are well-represented, of course, but other fine Italian wines are not neglected; all the wines can also be bought in the nearby Enoteca del Leone.The staff is very courteous, young and pleasantly informal.

Good, representative restauarnt in Val d'Orcia

Restaurant is in the touristy spa village of Bagno Vignoni, but has an intimate atmosphere by virtue of being divided into several small dining rooms. Menu is typical of local area, the service friendly and the prices reasonable

Refined cuisine in a tiny little town in the middle of the Valley d'Orcia. Superb wine list at affordable prices. Excellent service. Try the zucchini flower filled with ricotta cheese and the rabbit as secundi piatti, you won't regret it!

Gourmet Italian in the heart of Bagno Vignoni, gorgeous setting, we ate in the garden & there are also little alcoves inside with several tables in each. Food was the best we had in Italy! Especially the fresh spaghetti soaked in Chianti & bacon!!!!!! Service was excellent from the young lady! Price was value for money! U get what you... More

Perhaps it is because we were indecisive with many questions. But the overall feeling was that we are irritating. Though there was a girl super nice. We had to get up few times to ask to burn the meat a bit longer and to ask for desserts. The steak was okay and the side dishes were fine. We had better.... More

If you want to sit outside facing the lovely baths of Bagno Vignoni for your lunch then this is not the place for you. It is tucked away down a side street on a small piazza. We had lunch there and it was wonderful. What was there not to like? Ok there were not any views but the piazza was... More

We decided in this restaturant without viewing any review because we arrived at this little town just per causality. After seeing their Michelin stickers we decided to have lunch. Service was average, food was cold, the sliced filete was over cooked and room temperature, roasted potatoes were burned, I wanted to have the lamb chops, which they runout of them... More

We were seated outside in the sunshine and it was absolutely lovely. The piazza where this Osteria is located is beautiful. We ate lunch here and ordered integral pasta with pecorino cheese and lasagna. Both dishes were really good. The service was very good as well.

Love this place. Always fantastic quality. We have dinned here 4 or 5 times now, and without doubt it is one of my favourite restaurants in Italy. Rustic Tuscan cuisine, a small and interesting wine list and great staff. Oh, and it's located in the dreamy Bagno Vignoni! You should try the 6 course tasting menu with a bottle of... More

I had a wonderful lunch in Osteria del Leone (the ancient original restaurant). This is a place not to be missed even if from outside is not giving you such an impression. I had "fiori di zucca con ricotta", the "finocchi soup" which was a real paradise of the taste, the chief told me that there were no added any... More

We had lunch on a warm afternoon and loved the sheltered outdoor patio area that the restaurant had. We were treated to very friendly and efficient service and very good local Tuscan fare and a reasonable price. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch with wine and would go back.
