Description: The tavern is located in proximity of the entrance door of Monticchiello, a nice medieval village near Pienza.With its few places (it is better to reserve), it proposes an elegant room, furnished with taste in typical tuscan style, it is comfortable and familiar. The courtesy and the professionality of the owner, Daria, young and passionate sommelier, are an optimal guide in the choice of the plates and the wines. During the beautiful season it is possible to eat in the terrace, enjoying a wonderful sight on Pienza, the Val d'Orcia and the Amiata.Accommodation in Monticchiello- The residence "Il Torrino" is a panoramic apartment obtained from the restauration of an ancient tower belonging to the boundaries of the medieval suburb Monticchiello. The structure, in proximity of the principal access to the village, has been completely restructured from the owner with taste and scrupulous care of the details. At guests' disposal a double room and a living-room with couch-bed and TV; panoramic view on Pienza and the Val d’Orcia. The prices for the weekly stay change according to the season and are comprehensive of heating, final cleaning, household linen. For briefer stays contact the owner.

“Can't beat the view!”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

The owners of the villa we rented recommended this restaurant and it was one of our favorites in Tuscany! Sitting on the outside balcony with the view of the countryside was unforgettable. Daria, the owner, was very personable and friendly and her entire staff was very accommodating . The house wine was excellent and all our food was great. Monticchiello is one of my favorite Tuscan towns from the gelato shop, to the store with the beautiful water colors, to the view and this restaurant. Eat here, you won't soon forget it.

“What a view”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

The terrace for this taverna is the place to sit, you have superb views of rolling Tuscan hills. The menu and wine is simply the best. The staff are very friendly and helpful. All the wine is available to purchase and it is not over priced. We got complimentary desert wine with our deserts which certainly melt in the mouth. You will not regret visiting here.

“Scrumptious food, fantastic experience and supreme view”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

If you are ever near Pienza or Montepulciano on a Saturday night (or any day of the week, for that matter), make a scenic drive to Monticchiello and go to La Porta for a great experience. We took a beautiful drive with the windows open to take in the wonderful smell of just-cut hay. We had a wonderful dinner on the outdoor, 2nd floor terrace at dusk - highly romantic. The sky turned purple when the sun set -- a great view of the Tuscan country side coupled by fantastic food. The restaurant owner is a friendly woman who make sure you are enjoying your meal.

“Delicious Tuscan fare”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Dishes are typically Tuscan in their simplicity. Execution is brilliant, and paired with a great local wine, and the lovely views of the Val d'Orcia, make for a dream meal experience.
Highly recommend the pici pasta and farro risotto - delicious homely food.
