“Excellent food, wine and atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We ate here twice, our first and last nights, and had excellent food each time. Their wine list is extraordinary and the zucchini pudding and wild boar was great. The decor and atmosphere are very comfortable and unusual, and staff wonderful.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We've been traveling around Italy for a week now and this restaurant had the best food of any we have been to. Our B&B host recommended it (she had just gone there the night before to celebrate her anniversary). The service was friendly and attentive for the most part, but the food was outstanding. They had a special zuccini pudding with parma ham that was different and delicious. The meat and cheese appetizer was also good. The mixed green salad was fresh and quite large and the pasta was exquisite. Dessert did not disappoint either. Highly recommend.

“Beautiful Osteria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

The interior of this Osteria is so great, the walls are lined with wine. The owner is so nice, we had the Pici and the Papa Pomodoro, both were outstanding. The wines were excellent as well.

“Charming Tuscan restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

La Botte Piena has a charming atmosphere, great staff, and some of the most delicious food we had during our entire stay in Tuscany. Their wine list is great (they even had my favorite Vin Santo for a perfect ending to the meal) and the servers are familiar with it and extremely helpful with recommendations. The food was amazing - the wild meats appetizer is an absolute must, as are the vegetables sott'olio; also try the egg with truffles. As an added bonus, they were wonderfully accommodating for our friends' dog, so definitely pet friendly!
