Popped in without a reservation and were greeted warmly. Offered a table in the rear of the restaurant with our 2 year old. Menu was decent enough with a broad range of food. I ordered the grilled sausages with fries as a side and my wife ordered the roast chicken. Also we ordered the house red wine. One taste of... More

Pienza is a stunning small town, worth a visit on any driving tour of Tuscany. For a small town ,it has a lot of great restaurants -- this place tops our list: authentic, beautiful, air-conditioned on a hot day! When we wlaked in, it was filled with a great mix of visitors and locals - the vibe was friendly and... More

We go to this restaurant every time we visit Tuscany (every 2 or 3 years) because the first time we visited 15 years ago we had the best steak of our lives. It never disappoints - the steak is just as good now as it was the first time ( simply done - seasoned and cooked over charcoal). Although the... More

My husband and I dined here ten years ago and had a wonderful, memorable evening. Since that time, it has changed ownership and our current experience was disappointing.

Our Italian not so good, but the waiter helped use with every course. I really enjoyed their bread, the salad was so fresh. All our servings were over the top.

Our dinner was pretty good, but we weren't wowed! Prices are reasonable. No complaints about service. Typical Tuscan fare. Would probably give it another try if ever back in Pienza.

We had a fantastic meal & evening at this restaurant. We had intended to go to another restaurant a little further up the road but it wasn't very welcoming so we back tracked to la Buca and how lucky was that! The service was very friendly, the food just sensational and the house wine extremely drinkable! I stayed with the... More

We eat here at least twice every trip to Pienza. I always order the Pici (handmade) with cinghale sauce, which is a tomato sauce with wild boar. It is a Tuscan staple. It is inside the city center and easy to get to. The house wine is also very good, and their desert cart will make you cry, because you... More
