We all loved the rabbit. Including our daughter. Pasta was delicious according to our daughter. Service is typically Italian and we loved it. We took the cheap house wine and it was great.

I can only echo the positive comments in other reviews. This was one of the best meals we had in our 10 days in Tuscany. The servings are generous. The plate of local meats and cheeses was outstanding. The pasta with fresh tomatoes, basil and cheese was extremely tasty - all fresh with local ingredients. The crostini misti was a... More

One of the best lunches we had in Italy! Wild boar stew was phenomenal. So was everyone else's lunch. Wine was very good and reasonably priced. We enjoyed everything from this place really including the pane-cotta!

This place has a great view and very nice food. We went for lunch and let them choose our food for us - it was all delicious.

It's located at a convenient spot in Montalcino town. We tried a range of different homemade pasta: all tasted nice, but the spicy tomato sauce is particularly tasty! There is a thick tomato soup which is apparently a local specialty, but it wasn't suitable for my group's taste. Wine: there's some very economical Brunello on the menu - and the... More

We ate here twice on the weekend we spent in Montalcino - it was just so good. They serve real local dishes perfectly cooked and are popular with locals and tourists alike. It gets busy, but the service is friendly and just fast enough - they also make a big effort with people who don't speak the language. And they... More

Luckily we stopped in on our way to the castle for a tasting to make reservation and scored the last table available. We arrived an hour later to a packed house which appeared to be mostly locals. The menu was simple Tuscan fare Montalcino style. The restaurant servers were very friendly and efficient and fast as the restaurant was very... More

The fellow at an Enoteca recommended this Osteria as a place for non-touristic food. We was right. It was filled with Italian speaking folks out for lunch. We tried the crostini with chicken liver, mushrooms, tomatoes- all good. The pici pasta with fungi was excellent. My husband had the wild boar with beans while I tried the rabbit with salad....
