At the top of the hill just before entering the main town. Nice outside seating yet shielded from the winds and rain. Good selection of wines and simple delicious food with a bar to sit at as well.

Great place for a late afternoon respite, glass of wine, and a bowl of regional olives. Good selection of Brunello and Vino Nobile. Oh, then there's the view of Val d'Orcia!

Sat outside on a warm cloudy afternoon enjoying the beautiful views, we enjoyed the mixed meats starter, followed by lamb & wild boar. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
