If you want a fab pizza that is good value, head here.

We spent 2 months in Pienza and this was our go to pizza place. You will not be disappointed.

We also tried the pasta on our last visit and the pici with meat sauce was great too!

Yes there are smarter restaurants in Pienza but sometimes a delicious pizza washed down with a lovely bottle of wine is just what you want!

We ate here with out four boys, we specified no pizza so we were eating more traditional Tuscan. Food was excellent and fairly priced. We enjoyed the home made desserts as well.

We were a group of 8 for lunch in October 2013. While exploring the interesting historic town of Pienza we stumbled on this Ristorante - Pizzeria near one of the town Porto's and decided to give it a try for lunch - great choice! The washrooms were impeccable as was the entire establishment - not fancy but the pride of ownership was evident everywhere - especially the food! We all had the pizza which is served with scissors for cutting - something I have never seen before. The pizza crust was fantastic as was the entire lunch and cappuccino. Great service and friendly folks - we all gave La Mensa thumbs up!

My husband and I are vegetarians, and found many great choices for dinner in this family-run, unpretentious trattoria and pizzeria. Warm cannellini beans, platter of several different Pecorino sheep cheese (specialty of Pienza)--fresh, aged, and stages in between. Nice after only having aged grated Pecorino in USA. Ravioli with spinach and buttermilk curds in fresh tomato sauce. Homemade spaghetti with funghi and truffle oil. Good house wine, cold Moretti birra. Our waitress, daughter of the cook (her mother) recited to me (in good English) her recipe for the eggy spaghetti she had made that day. Great personal service. A delightful home-cooked meal in a small trattoria (and take-out pizzeria in the front) that made us feel like family.

Friendly service by Rita and Rubina. We enjoyed our meal. Authentic Tuscan food. Easy to find. Before the entrance to the town. Easy parking. Enjoy!
