“Tortoises...”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This restaurant had everything we wanted including 3 wandering tortoises to keep the kids entertained. Terrific food in a delightful setting and at a reasonable price - just perfect. I can thoroughly recomment this place. We were a party of nine ranging from 7 years old to 74 and everyone left very satisfied. This is a gem within a gem as San Quirico d'Orcia is without doubt one of the best villages in the whole of Toscana.

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Pretty much everything was perfect in this restaurant. The beautiful dining garden, the service, and of course the food and the wine. Only things that could have been beter are minor things like the wasps that were quite annoying, and also a little kid at the table next to us who was watching tv series without headphones on his parents iPad.

“Delicious Food!!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were staying at the Palazzo dei Capitani and were keen to try this Trattoria al Vecchio Forno. The setting, the ambience, the service and especially the food was 'ottimo'!!! A lovely and very satisfying experience :-)

“A pearl”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We landed here by chance and we did not regret it. The place was sublime in the details, the staff very kind and attentive. The wine and the cuisine... well... unforgettable. Tuscany surely knows what "goodlife" is and that trattoria represent that spirit.

“Fabulous Handmade Pasta”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Scrumptious! The hand made pastas here are amazing! My husband and I had the same thing, and the waiter came up to the table with the pan and served our plates on our table. The produce was so fresh... still dreaming about that meal.
