The best of Italy. The best in food appreciation
Oct 2021 • Friends
If you love food, if you appreciate farming, if you marvel at how the plant turns into pasta, the grape to wine, the goat/sheep to cheese, if you can handle a tough lesson in farm sustainability from a passionate family who has worked the land for 30 years, if you enjoy a view of the Italian countryside….this is the place for you. Of the 17 days I spent traveling throughout Italy in October, this was one of the top highlights. Attend the tour, eat the food, and above all, be OPEN to learning and watching and listening about how food is grown, nurtured, and loved. Foodies beware, you may never want to leave.

Expensive#nice place#local products
Sep 2021 • Couples
We took lunch on a Sunday. The place is very nice,the view it's incredible, the staff is gentle.
The products are local, are very tasty but i think it's expensive compared with the portions. You pay a lot the location basically.
I cannot say I would recommend it.
I attach a photo with the menù. Hope it helps

Avoid at all cost. Tourist trap
Mar 2020
Avoid at all cost. Rip-off. Unfriendly staff, poor food, exorbitant prices. We payed 220 euros per person for a disgusting salad, a little cheese and a pasta with perhaps 1g of low quality turffle.

Good food, breathtaking view
Aug 2020
This is a must in Pienza simply for the view which is utterly breathtaking. The food is also divine all of which is local produce including the cheese which is a highlight.

Relaxing garden setting, stunning views, quirky place
Jul 2020
I stopped by this farm to pick up their famous pecorino cheese and was lucky to get a table at the restaurant for coffee. The place is just gorgeous, with stunning views over the rolling Tuscan hills; the garden is so pleasant to just relax. Service is friendly, and the grounds are quite interesting: there are some old kitchen furniture items from a bygone era and beautiful peacocks grazing around. A must-visit stop during your tuscan holiday.

Truffle experience
Jul 2019
We reserved for the truffle hunt and lunch. We got there early to enjoy the view over the countryside. The view is likely much better during dinner when the light is softer, certainly during the summer. The hunt was staged where we walked down a trail from the parking lot. More than once the gentleman had to tug on the dog's leash to direct him to the hidden truffle. Granted you probably wouldn't want to go on a real hunt which might involve a long drive and take most of the day, with cross country hiking.

You could see the whole farm in 15 minutes. It took a while to get the attention of the staff as they process a lot of customers through here, doing various classes. The lunch was ho hum, certainly for the price, even with truffles added to the dishes.

Amazing location and amazing food. The view is just incredible! Go for lunch when the weather is nice. That is what we did on the recommendation of another local place and we were so happy. Their food and wine is all from their own production. This place really felt special. There were peacocks walking around, cats lounging in the sun and us drinking wine and basking in the Tuscan sun. Pure bliss.

Delightful Rustic Restaurant & Farm
Sep 2019 • Couples
We did a farm tour and ate at the restaurant. I would reccomend walking the grounds by yourself and getting a reservation at the restaurant.
There is an optional cheeses making class and tour that we did not try.
The food was plated & presented perfectly. It was all magazine picture worthy. It tasted as good as it looked. The preset lunch menu included nice wines. The view and setting is STUNNING. We felt like we were in a Food & Wine magazine cover shoot.
Service was very good also.
It is worth the drive. We spent a good 3 hours there.
A highlight of our 3week trip.
