“Excellent thincrust pizza's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Though they serve other dishes as well it's for the pizza's you should go. They are fantastic, almost like in Naples. Lovely thin crusts wood-oven baked pizzas.
Italians traditionally drink beer with pizza. I do not like beer... The wine list is not good: typical pizzeria wine list with cheap local wines served much too warm. That's the one thing they should really improve on.

“The best pizza's, and more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

At the occasion of our last visit to Pienza we ''introduced'' good friends to our friends of La Compagnia. We were 6 and really enjoyed our lunch. The housewine has changed; Stefano worried whether we would appreciate this, but we were able to satisfy him: the new SpePo Rosso 2011 is, in our view, even better than the former one. It is somewhat lighter, and accompanies perfectly the dishes that mama prepares in the kitchen. We had pasta, the excellent homemade ravioli with asparagus or rucola, calemari friti, the selection of pecorino cheeses with homemade dolce, tagliata and delicious ''dolce''. We finished with cafe and the grappa of the house. The bill was decent. Julio, Michele and Stefano served us outstandingly.

“The best pizza's in Toscana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2011

When you drive from San Quirico to, let's say, San Giovanni d'Asso you pass by the tiny little village of Torrenieri. There, in front of the lovely church, you find the family owned ristorante La Compagnia. Mamma cooks, like nonna did in the past, and Julio, Michele and housefriend Stefano serve. In the evening you can get the best pizza in Toscana. For lunch, and also for dinner of course, you have the fantastic house made pasta's, but also a great tagliata. Slices of roasted meat from the famous Chianina cow from the Valdichiana valley. The housewine comes from Innocenti, wellknown producers of Brunello and Rosso de Montalcino. For no more than 7, 8 euro's you drink there a red wine, comparable to a Rosso the Montalcino. It's unbelievable. There is a pleasant terrace, covered by trees, and the inside of the restaurant is typical Italian. The bill will never exceed the 40 to 50 euro's, that is for two of course, and the grappa or limoncello is on the house.
