The authentic italian cuisine was fabulous and the servings were generous. This large restaurant in a historic building is perfect for couples or larger groups.

Our meal here was unremarkable - not bad but I wouldn't eat here again because there are better places in Pienza. We each had an antipasti and a pasta dish for lunch. We had a carafe of the house wine which not particularly good. The service was just OK. We came in towards the end of the lunch crowd and were some of the last people there at the end. We still had to wait a fair bit for the waiter to check back with us so we could ask for the check. The bathrooms were very clean.

It's a local restaurant where mostly served local ppl in Pienza. It's nice that they have English menu since not all waiters speak english. We order the Parma ham with melon, 3 different type of pasta, grilled sausage, daily special (pork chop), Nepolean cake, coffee and house wine for less than 100 euro. We all love the homemade pici as well as the grilled sausage. The best part of the meal is the Nepolean cake. I will go back to this restaurant because of the dessert cart.

We spent 4 nights in pienza and always use trip advisor for advise as this was low in ratings we did not plan to go and its also easy to miss from the outside, as all other places were closed we went in as no other options! well we had the best food and service and the setting was lovely nice and light as some of the others are dark and dim, had pasta with mushrooms excellent choice good choice of wine and one of the cheapest meals we had- excellent night

Visited this restaurant twice during our stay in the area - both times had good food and service. A lovely family run restaurant with nice atmosphere and full of locals which is always a good sign.
