A great little find. Delicious homemade pasta as well as many other tasty entrees. The wild boar ragu was a treat. Decent wine. Most patrons were local Italians. A good sign right off. Not at all touristy. We ate there three times. Indicative of excellent food and reasonable prices!

We stopped for lunch and had the wild boar over pici as shown in their photo. It was very good. The dining room is a bit cramped. They do have outside seating but the weather was bad that day. The service was quick and efficient. Be sure to buy a few sticks of coppiette (spicy pork jerky) and porkette (trecento... More

We sampled the charcuteries and home-made pasta dishes (don't miss the fusili arrabiata and tagliatelle with wild-boar sauce) and had an enlighted culinary moment in a very busy place with the locals. Book in advance if you are not prepared to wait.

Woah we were so lucky to stop by at this bar while visiting Monteriggionni. One of the most interesting food experience we had during our visit in Tuscany. The bar is very rustic, lots fo local people come just for a panini with local cheese or ham. We ordered an mix antipasti for three and could hardly finish our plates.... More

Had lunch here with my husband and sometimes fussy 10 year old. She had spaghetti ragu (essentially a meat bolognese) and loved it. I had a risotto which was very filling. My husband had the stuffed pork with potatoes and really enjoyed that. Unless you're very big eaters; think you'll find an anti pasta and main course more than enough... More

We had driven past this crowded bar countless times on the way to visit Monterigioni castle. Each time, we would ask ourselves what was the magnet drawing the huge crowds. Then today, we drove our guests to the castle, and as most of the formal restaurants were closed on a Monday, we decided to try this popular bar. And what... More

You can't miss this restaurant - you turn off the highway into Monteriggioni and this is on the right, after the round-a-bout. There is a parking lot across the street, or behind the restaurant, along the street. We sat outside to enjoy the weather. This is a very 'locals-friendly' place - we saw everyone from old to large families. The... More

We wanted to visit the castle of Monteriggioni but as we were hungry, we stopped at this (only) bar in the village. At first sight everything looked ok. We ordered and so far so good. Staff was friendly, food on the plates that we saw looked good. However, upon bringing our food and beverages, the waiter threw a full glass... More
