We had our rehearsal dinner here and the food, experience and chef were extraordinary! We loved the chef, who came out to present each course and was very lovely to all of us. Our meal consisted of several courses and each course was beyond delicious. The bruschetta was the best I have ever had. They call the chef 'the pork... More

This is a small osteria in a typical mountain village, sadly, the local original population has declined, so mainly tourists can be found here. The menu is osteria-like small, but well equipped with home made pasta and several nice secondi. The antipasti are quite good, the pasta is superb. The bistecca I ordered was nearly to much for me so... More

We’d explored Montebenichi earlier in the week and bumped into the Chef Gino, it looked like a lovely place for dinner so we booked it for our last night. Such a great call, the adventure started when Gino picked us up from our Villa at the bottom of the hill!! Food was delicious, vibe was wonderful – we lucked out... More

I had the Steak Fiorentina, which was excellent, but the best dish was the grilled pork chops. They also made a very tasty birthday cake for our group.

Operated by a wonderful family, this father and son business provides the best in authentic Tuscan cuisine. The family, as members of the porcupine contrada, share stories of participating in the Palio di Siena, the horse race in nearby Siena. If you are sitting on the patio on a clear day, you can see the medieval town of Cortona in... More

A fellow guest at our villas highly recommended this restaurant to us and we made the beautiful drive up the hill to Montebenichi to dine at this exquisite restaurant. What a delight to discover such excellent food and service in this out of the way small village location! We were staying in the Castelnuevo Barardenga area, only a short drive... More

When staying at the Castelletto di Montebenichi we always visit this restaurant run by a father and son. The atmosphere is welcoming and the food is first class. Situated two to three kilometres off the main road, up a hill in Montebenichi it is worth the drive to find it. Obviously if you are staying in the Castelletto you can... More

The food is spectacular!!! In fine Italian fashion, there is no rush, your table is your's for the evening. What is most memorable is that Osteria l'Orciaia is run by a family that is very welcoming and personable-a member of the porcupine contrada that will regale you with stories from the Palio, the horse race in Siena.
