Most unfriendly service and owner ever met in italy. Didn't have change on a 20 eur note (i guess that's what they tell Chinese tourists), didn't want 2 warm up milk for a baby, as bad ad it can be!!More

Very good food, tasty, meat in some red wine sous is very good, ravioli also is beautifull. White home wine is ok, nothing special, but you can drink 2 glasses. Place is nice, and garden is also nice.

We loved the pasta here more than the Rick Steves recommended restaurant in Siena. Unfortunately no pizza for lunch but loved the pasta. Only downside was the bread wasn't very flavorful. And right next to parking!

Small restaurant located a few blocks from the tourist part of town down a side street but easy to find. Worth the walk. We liked the down to earth homey atmosphere & when we told the waiter we liked the food, he got his mother-in-law,...More

We had eaten here several years ago and enjoyed the experience. We decided to go back when we recently revisited Pienza. Where do I begin? The house wine was undrinkable. It was thin, sour, and insipid. Serving wine like that in Toscana should be against...More
