We were attracted to the restaurant by the views (and they are great) but we're really disappointed with the service. Our waitress was cold and disinterested. The food was good but the portion size very small. Sadly we would not return.

The Terrazza Val D'Orcia is located at the north end of the little town of Pienza, overlooking the whole of the Val D'Orcia and, beyond that, the bulk of Monte Amiata, an incredible view. The food matches the view. Tuscan cookery, of course, but obviously...More

I first encountered this lovely restaurant just outside the walls of the pretty, much visited Tuscan hill-top town of Pienza three years ago. There are few disappointments in anything Tuscan, but one problem is that medieval walled towns tend to be inward looking, the walls...More

Wonderful view, the view is already worth a visit here but the food is also good and service was good. We had the salumi and formaggi and 2 pasta's and both were good. Although this is a typical tourist spot it is nice anyway. Waiters...More

This little restaurant just outside the walls of Pienza is a little jewel. Had lunch here after biking from Bagno Vignoni and really enjoyed the great terrace, top view and great food.

Good value for money. Excellent value for money house red. Gnocchi with asparagus and ham was perfect for lunch. The views are to die for. Quite chilled music and not too busy.

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 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,...More
