We dropped in for an informal meal. We both had calzone and a salad. The Calzoni was acceptable but coming from Bologna we have I guess been spoilt. It was fairly bland. On the other hand the service was friendly and good and the Pinot Grigio excellent. These are the bargain Tuscan wines. The quality to value ratio is high.

The best pizza and lots of other Tuscan farm to table foods. Very reasonable prices. Worth a few trips!

Federico looks after all the details, and runs the best restaurant in Montalcino. Pizza? Great selection, and oh so good! Bruschetta, Fritto Misto, grilled veggies, and steaks all good. We have dined here 4 times, and will go again tomorrow night. Deep selection (producers and vintages) of Brunelli and Rosso di M., at really fair prices. Don't miss the desserts and their homemade limoncello - wow! Can't wait 'till tomorrow night...and sad we have to leave Saturday. Note that many locals pick up pizza to go...they're in the know! Don't miss this one.

We came here for dinner one night and another night for lunch. They have fabulous pizza and pastas. The pizza I got had fresh bufala mozzarella with tomatoes and basil, it was simple, yet amazing. For lunch we shared the pasta with wild boar sauce and a pizza with ham which was also great. Highly recommend if you're in town!

I echo just what the previous reviewer says...
We also visited twice as the food was so good and good value. I particularly loved the risotto and the spinach. Good choice of wines too.
