“Absolutely perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

A wonderful place! If it's on the menu it will be terrific. The pecorino cheese with bacon was amazing and different than anything I've ever tasted. I cannot find a recipe for that particular dish but the pecorino is so great in Pienza I don't think it would be as good if I tried it in California. We sat inside several times, since the outside tables were filled and it was just great. The people working there were happy and helpful and very pleasant to everyone. We've spent 3 weeks in Italy the last 3 years and have eaten out every meal...this has got to be one of the high points. Not fancy, just very, very good.

“Perfect Tuscan cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We were taken for dinner here by our Italian host and had the most wonderful meal...course after course from delicate ricotta bruschetta to melt-in-the mouth carpaccio was set before us, accompanied by flasks of dry white wine. The place is family-owned and the service creates a typically 'Italian' atmosphere if there is such a thing; full of warmth, laughter and a fair amount of noise. I feel very lucky to have been to such a great place!

“I Love This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

All you need to know: it's very good. Order as much or as little as you want. The portions are small -- Tuscan tapas. Everything is fresh and tastes like it was meant to taste. This is what you came to Italy to eat. Try the cheese grilled ("griglia"). Eating cheese any other way will never be as good. Also, I'm a solo travel, yet they made me feel like I was part of their family.

“Wonderful lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2014

Be sure to get the bean soup, the grilled pecorino, the mix of marinated vegetables and the caprese. So good!

“Best Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We had the most fantastic lunch at Sette di Vino! The owner paid attention to all of the patrons and went out of his way to make you feel like family. The Zuppa di fagioli is to die for and the crostini options are fantastic. A wonderful selection of half litre wines are also available. Make a reservation (yes, even for lunch) or get there early. The outdoor seating allows you to watch the Pienza life unfold.
