The artichoke flan was very good. The pasta was decent but not very flavorful. The pork dish had great flavor but was very dry. The veal was good with fresh parmesan and Arugula. I found the restaurant next door to be much better, more rustic home like feel and friendly.

Small restaurant with great service, perfect whine selection and above all great food with good value for money. Sant'Angelo in Colle, a nice little, well restored village atmosphere. Reservation is needed as locals find the place as well!

Set on a hilltop in a quiet village boasting spectacular vineyard views, Il Leccio is the ideal place to spend hours enjoying a decadent lunch full of fresh pastas and plenty of local Brunello.

Enjoyed our meal here very much. Great service and interesting menu. We arrived approx 7:30 and the place was empty. By 8:30 it was completely filled with locals. House wine was delicious and reasonable. Dinner options very creative.

Visiting in November, this was still busy at Thursday lunchtime - always book ahead. Food is superb, deceptively straightforward, but based on handmade pasta. Beautiful medieval stone building. If there's a better place to go for lunch, I've yet to find it.

Just of the road from Montalcino to Grosetto, you would miss the village unless you were looking for it. However, you should make the effort to find this gem. Just make sure you book in advance.

Well worth the journey. Location is superb, and if you are lucky to visit on a warm evening, outside eating is recommended. best ever starter broccoli tart, melt in the mouth. Tiramisu was to die for.
