We were told this was the best pizza in Montalcino. Didn't try any other, but this was pretty good:) The restaurant fills up quickly for dinner. Also has some italian beer if you happen to need a wine break😉

We ate the pizza and it was good! We also ordered a bottle of red wine and it was good as well. The staff was really friendly and we felt really comfortable.
