“one of the best meals ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

We had a superb table with a gorgeous view on a beautiful evening. We were treated like royalty by the staff and the food was wonderful. They also recommended very pleasant good value local wine which kept the bill down a bit

“Great view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

....if you can sit outside. Best to go at lunch time or in the summer to be able to sit outside. We booked a table last week only to be told the terrace would be closed in the evening, as its too cold to sit outside.... I think this is by local standards, as I was in a t-shirt and by uk standards it was very warm- all that aside, this is a nice restaurant, a good atmosphere (if a little empty on the night we were there) food is a little on the pricy side compared to some of the other restaurants.

“Great view over the valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We had a lovely lunch overlooking the valley. The restaurant is just outside the gates to the main tourist street and has a wonderful garden with fantastic views. The food was good and we enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant.

“An amazing find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Just outside the city walls - this was a great place to eat. Ask for a table by the wall overlooking the countryside - delightful as the sun goes down. The atmospher was delightful and the food amazing. We went back twice once we had found it. Great!

“AMAZING!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

After trying many restaurats in Pienza we accidentally bumped into this beautiful gem a few steps from the main entrance to the old town.
We finally experienced the real Tuscan deal: the combo between food and scenic view was breathtaking (FYI they have a beautiful outdoor patio-garden that dominates the entire Val d’Orcia).
Our meal was perfect, service was on pointe without being stuffy, the server's rec's were all fantastic.
We almost reached Nirvana and said "Okay, THIS one I would return to everyday whenever I am in Pienza."  
I would go back for their homemade Pici and their selection of cheeses and cold cuts.
This restaurant lived up to the expectations for both of us.  Looking forward to returning to Terrazza Val D’Orcia (hopefully next year)
