This is a very clean, family-run restaurant serving well-cooked standard Tuscan fare. The pizzas are very good but try the grilled meats with chickpeas or lentils...very tasty.

Looking for a good but not too expensive place to eat, this restaurant was recommended to us by Lisa, the host at Suite d'Artista where we stayed (which is by the way highly recommended as well). Looking at previous reviews, we didn't have too high expectations regarding service, but on that evening in August, when the place was fully booked mostly by Italians, we had no complaints at all. The pizza's and pasta were very fresh and tasty and we were not hurried by the waiter to finish our wine and coffee. Very reasonable prices considering this touristic place.

We usually have a pizza and a glass of wine for lunch when we eat here. The food is local Tuscan and freshly prepared. Not a 30 minute stop, but traveling should be slow.

Nice food with reasonable pricing. Location is not top as there is no real view on the beautiful surroundings. Located in the center of Montalcino.
