“Simple room, excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012 via mobile

Given the location, I thought that the food would be good but simple, based on others' recommendations. The food, which is relatively inexpensive, is surprisingly inventive and well conceived. Imagination, well employed and excellent ingredients, produces exceptionally good food. I am more impressed w/this restaurant than in others in Chiana and in southern Tuscany that we have tried in more than two weeks.

“Best restaurant in Lucignano”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

There are a surprising number of excellent restaurants in the small town of Lucignano but L'Ostematto is worth seeking out. It is easy to miss as it is on the outer wall of the town outside the gate next to the rear entrance to the supermarket. Everything about the restaurant was outstanding. The food is Tuscan inspired with fresh local ingredients that are innovatively prepared and absolutely delicious. I never believed eggplant could taste so good and the pork entree was out of this world. The prices were very reasonable and service was first class: helpful explanations of the dishes, tips on wines and extremely friendly and gracious. This seems to be a place that is full of locals and you can see why.
