Our group had 18 people, and the service was great. We all were pretty tired from a long drive into Tuscany. This place provided a pleasant place to relax. The food was very good. The Crostone was flavorful and delicious. Our children liked the Pici Al Ragu.

I can recommend it. After having a bad experience in Montepulciano we visited La Foce.
They served really good food (bistecca fiorentina), the garden in the back where you sit is lovely (olive trees) and the staff is really pleased and friendly. For five stars it's a bit too pricey and you have to go there by car.

Recommendable!

When my wife and I chose to eat 5 meals (2 lunches, 2 dinners and a breakfast) at the same restaurant during our recent stay at La Foce in the Tuscan hills, you'd think we were either nuts, unimaginative, overly cautious or just plain boring. But you'd be missing the main point - the food here is just too good to pass up! Everything about this place - location, views, decor, menu, food, service, overall ambience - bespeaks care, creativity and taste. It is simply a jewel. Try it once, but beware - you may be as hooked as we were. We can't wait to get back!

My wife and I were staying at Chiarentana at La Foce (fabulous), and decided to dine at Dopolavoro, just down the street. Great views from parking lot across the street, and pictureque outdoor seating if weather permits. The interior looks brand new, although tied to the La Foce history if you care to research. Although a good spot for couples, the atmosphere and menu seemed very family friendly. We split the mixed grill and vegetables; all were nicely done. Service was very attentive and friendly. All around, a great stop!

Our family of four enjoyed a wonderful light dinner here after a long day spent in the car. The service was professional and welcoming, and the food was delicious. The lovely homemade bread basket and cheese/meat platter were excellent, but the highlight was the savory chickpea soup, with plenty of fresh rosemary. We liked it so much we asked for the recipe!
