In a superb position, with a lovely covered terrace, the menu is standard tuscan fare, with the wine of the monastery or the excellent co op of Chianti Colle Senisi

Service is friendly, the food is exactly what it says it is , the price is right, and 5 minutes from seeing the magnificent frescos of Signorelli and Sodoma

We visit it every time we are in this part of the world, book to get a table for Sunday lunch as most of the congregation, monks excepted , ascend the hill for a leisurely lunch

This restaurant is placed at the entrance of di Monte Oliveto Maggio & was a pleasant way to have lunch till the monks winery & monastery was open. The food was simple & the beer cold, which is all you could ask for on a very hot day. Prices were not bad for lunch. We tasted the wines & found the wines average but the reds superb. The age of the barrels & stoneware on display was great way to taste wine around
