This agriturismo has a nice selection of local food, and they take pride that all ingredients are sourced within a certain perimeter around Pienza. They claim that even the water comes from the local source (La Fonte). The welcome and dining hall made us feel comfortable. The menu sported a good selection of antipasti, primi piatti, secondos and dessert. As the secundo piattis were all non-vegetarian, we had to opt for antipasti, primi, contorni (vegetables) and dessert to celebrate our last night in the area with a good meal. Unfortunately, the friendly lady of the house did not understand that we wanted primi served at the same time as contorni, so a plate of spinach was the first thing edible we got. She quickly understood, however, and from then on, everything went smooth. The only thing I have to note is that their home-made pasta (pici) was good but not the very best I had (Del Falco and Buca della fate were preferred). We enjoyed all courses while our Teutonic neighbours tried to swallow the yearly meat consumption of an average Somalian. The meal, with some wine for me, set us back not more than 50 euro for 2 persons. Recommended, but maybe more in summer when you can dine outside in a very, very nice setting.
