Although we dined here in Oct 2012...you could see that there was ample out dining outside as well (weather permitting), The atmosphere was charming authentic Tuscan design and the spacing of tables was ample which is quite rare in most restaurants in Italy. There were many choices for first and second dishes and the service was very good as well. Located in the town of beautiful Castiglione Fiorentino.

Antica Pieve is several streets ahead of any other restaurant in the surrounding area. The menu is essentially Tuscan plus pizzas but the Tuscan element is often prepared with refreshing twists that satisfy the tradition but add to it. Another poster had a problem with over-salted food. Welcome to Tuscany. Tuscans love their salt. Unfortunately too much, sometimes.

Antica Pieve can get very very busy. There can be glitches in service. And it's not cheap. But the quality of the food makes the place well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Great outdoor setting, and very good food at a reasonable price. Service was good too. They had indoor/outdoor TVs which was very convenient as we were following the Europe Cup soccer games. We dined there twice and spent an average of $55-$60 euros for 2 people, with first & main plates, dessert and house wine.

We've been here a few times before for lunch but it wasn't great during our evening visit. Set back in large grounds, with lots of parking, on the road between Castiglion Fiorentino and Arezzo, this restaurant occupies a large and nicely restored former fattoria.

Food is good. Lots of hearty Tuscan dishes and great wood-fired oven pizzas. Extensive wine list and not overpriced. But we've marked it down this time because:
1, they dumped us on a far table next to a fire exit door – and another door used by staff to go to their offices/cloakrooms;
2, the waitress got the orders wrong;
3, and then abandoned us for 40minutes while she served 'more important' tables;
4, waited ages to pay so in the end we just walked to the counter and left some cash.
5, nd nobody said sorry.
Pity... we liked this place and, as locals, would have continued to support it. It is a large establishment and needs an experiened restaurant manager to keep everything running smoothly. Perhaps it was their day off? But there are now better options on our list. Hope it improves next time... if there's a next time.

This a great local, non touristy spot. We went on a Sunday in August and it was largely filled with Italian families. We had a very good pizza and an excellent Tuscan steak dish with Rosemary and Green peppercorns. The prices are decent and we weren't charged a head tax. The prices are quite reasonable and your Euros seem to go a little farther here.
