We went to this Osteria for a quick Lunch. We were not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere. Felt genuine Italian. My wife had freshly made local Mushroom soup and I had Pork Sausages and White beans in a tomato sauce. Both very good.

We went here based on these reviews, and the hotel. We ordered Tripe amd pasta. The pasta is extremely heavy with a blob of brown meat sauce...no flavor, no heat, no sauce. The tripe was unbeleiveably horrible! It was bright yellow and smelled like medicine. The taste was the texture of slimy crab, the flavor like numbing gel at a... More

Small place with a pretty traditional menu. Situated up near the Fortress. Good service. Reserving is a good idea. I had the panzanella salad and a pinci pasta with cherry tomatoes. My husband loved his rabbit dish. He would have sucked the bones if he could!

We stumbled into this little cute osteria during lunch time, by following the mouthwatering smell that filled the streets of Montalcino, and have to say we weren't disappointed. We started with the bruschetta mix which included toppings of: tomatoes, mixed mushrooms, tomato pure & caramilised onions. They weren't fancy looking but the taste was good. I then took the Lingua... More

We were walk-ins on a Thursday night and were given the last available table. The restaurant was packed. A good sign! Service was neat and the food was simple, but tasteful. A proper price-quality ratio. Food tip: the roasted rabbit.

Relaxed and informal, reasonably priced, rustic restaurant. No airs and graces, very tasty food (the bruschetta is simple but delicious), and good service. It is unpretentious, honest fare in a friendly atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended.

This place was recommended by a local winery. It was tucked into the mountainside and easy to find (albeit with directions). We were seated immediately and waited on promptly. Although there was only one waitress, she took our order and served refreshments quickly. The food was amazing. We ordered the fresh antipasti, panzanella but the highlight was the boar with...

What a deception! We waited for 10 minutes without anyone welcoming us. We wanted to enjoy a nice dessert with a nice dessert wine and coffee. But when the waitress finally came to us she was very unfriendly and rude and almost dismissed us for not having dinner. She grabbed the knives and forks away with force to prove her... More

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
