It has a great view of the walls and the town of Pienza and is just outside the walls. The Tuscan meat plate was unusually good. A lot of care and attention is given to both the indoor and outdoor spaces. It has some snap.

The decor includes an array of items that you might find in a farmhouse. The food was very well prepared and like what you would expect in a farm home. All of it was good, and the service was friendly and attentive.

We had a nice lunch here but with kids it was a bit formal seating inside a large but tastefully done up hall. The food was great, with a yummy dessert cart. Very conveniently located right in the centre of Pienza as you come from...More
