“Tasty treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 via mobile

We ordered several dishes to share a familla and enjoyed them all. Try the white bean salad-a pleasant surprise as it was warm, almost a light cassoulet

“Wonderful surprise! Real Italian comfort food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

We stayed in an agriturismo farmhouse near Pienza as it was located between Montepulciano and Montalcino. After our delicious wine tour where we purchased many bottles of perfect Montepulciano wine, we stumbled across the Osteria Del Borgo just off the main square. We were starving and figured, fine, we know we're going to have a fabulous dinner, no harm in having a kind of tourist-y lunch. WRONG! First course was crostini alla aglio e olio and crostini alla lardo (seasoned pork fat which melted into the bread). I had soft, pillowy gnocchi with guanciale (pig jowl) ragu, both of which tasted like they had just left a Nona's hands. My boyfriend had potato ravioli with Cinghiale ragu (wild boar) which was also amazing. It was fantastically done rustic comfort food. The service was LOVELY, we originally sat outside but got a bit cold and they moved us inside, gave us new napkins and water glasses, and couldn't have been more pleasant.

“Great view; food too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

This café may be somewhat hard to find (just slight NW of the town plaza) but it is well worth it. The food was very good (especially the risotto). The pasta was homemade and delicious.

“Great place, pity about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Lovely terrace, stunning view, charming staff but the food was mediocre. Good advice on wine, of which they naturally have an immense selection.
