We were stuck for somewhere to eat in the early evening and stumbled upon this restaurant whilst watching the sunset. Good food - particularly the gnocchi with butter and sage and the sliced steak - and the most welcoming and friendly staff.

We went for lunch based on reviews on here, the first time we were too late at just after 2pm but we came back a second time as we really wanted to enjoy the awesome views. Service was good and the food was simple and delicious but what a fabulous location

We thought the food was just average, but the views were outstanding. The service was not good, and the servers themselves were a bit odd. Not sure how good this was for kids since the Germans next to us kept looking at our children disapprovingly, but that's not the restaurants' fault.

It was nice to finally get out of Rome and have some really good Italian food. Like some others have noted, the views are probably the best thing about Terrazza Val D'Orcia, absolutely gorgeous. Service was a little slow, but overall, this was a solid meal and one of our top five meals of a week in Italy.

Five stars. Visited twice last week for dinner during a stay in Pienza. The view of the Val D'Orcia from the terrace dining area is breathtaking, especially at sunset. The food is outstanding. The meatballs, wild boar and sliced filet steak were delicious. The service was also excellent. Oh, did I mention the tiramisu???

Don't let you be lured by the amazing view as that is where it stops at this place. The food is average but certainly below par compared to other tourist places in town at same price level. They were not bothered by a black and white cat parading on the tables on the terrace outside. The service is rude and... More

We visited the restaurant in June. The location is incredible, a terrace above the valley with a fantastic sunset. Food was really good at reasoneable price. Service correct. We had an issue with a mistake in bill I discovered later. I wrote here a negative comment. The owner contacted me and send back the money incorrectly billed. MY BEST EXPERIENCE... More

We celebrated a friends birthday here with a lunch. Sitting out on the terrace over looking the Tuscan countryside was something special. Even photos can't do the view justice. Unfortunately the food, while good couldn't match the scenery. My partners guinea-fowl was a tad dry as if it had been overheated or left sitting in a warming dish for too... More

Our group came here upon the recommendation of our guide, and wow - were we thrilled. The gnocchi is incredible - so much so that we ordered more plates to go around! Fabulous view from the terrace. Our server even gave us cappuchinos to go since it was chilly at night.
