Wonderful experience. Went at lunchtime. At first we thought it was closed! You have to sneak around the back of the restaurant and it's all happening on the massive terrace with panoramic views that were breathtaking. This experience alone was worth the trip to Montefollonico. Lovely food and wine. The waitress was very good with my kids and accommodating with... More

We stayed at this little hotel and restuarant for four nights and ate dinner here twice. Both of our meals were very expertly prepared and the service was great. These people teach cooking classes in the fall winter and spring so they know their food. This restuarant is worth the effort to locate

We were lucky to discover this place when exploring this small town. Everything on the menu we ordered was exceptionally good. We came back three times during our week in Italy since other restaurants in the area just didn't compare. There's a reason why this restaurant is one of the few in the area to receive a nod from the... More

La Costa had both the best Eggplant parmesan I had on my trip to Italy, along with a great Ribollita. The restaurant itself had an amazing view of the valley behind the restaurant. Another great meal in Montefollonico.

Everything was perfect and the view is stupendous! We ordered grilled vegetables. pici pasta, spinach and the chicken cooked under a brick. We were impressed with the quality and freshness of the ingredients. Highly recommended.

We have stayed here twice and I will go back here every time ! There's nothing like sitting on your stone balcony with a great bottle of vino rosso di montepulciano and sharing it with great friends! The balcony overlooks a gorgeous valley. There will be a shepherd with his flock of sheep, and you can hear the little tinkling... More

We went to Montefollonico to have lunch at the Osteria La Botte Piena but it was closed. We decided to try the restaurant across the street, Relais La Costa. It is located in the historical center of the small medieval town of Montefollonico, between Pienza and Montepulciano. It is an oasis of peace and refined gastronomy, it is a hotel... More

I recently went here with a group tour and really enjoyed the place! Our hotel did not have a bar so we went to LaCosta at night to have drinks. The staff was friendly and the owner was a great bartender I will return to this great village but I will stay at La Costa

While the setting is beautiful, the food is at best average and the service a bit haughty. There are many other better places to eat in this small, quaint hill town in Tuscany.

Again a fine dining spot in the heart of Tuscany. Owners not so entertaining, but the food, oh, the food, is absolutely fantastic. Try their picci pasta with almost everything. Is fantastic. Also their meat & porcini dishes are to remember. Fantastic dining experience.
