This place was one of the few open during our off-season visit to Pienza so I was not expecting much. But I was happily surprised. Excellent pizza with crispy thin crust and nicely blackened spots on the bottom. Fresh high quality ingredients. And the house red was not just drinkable, but quite good for what it was. Recommended.

We return to La Mensa every time we are in Tuscany! We love it. We've had many dishes including ribolitta, pizza and pici! All of which are fantastic. However we ALWAYS order the pancetta wrapped pecorino! The service is warm and friendly!

The exterior is not that inviting but the food is excellent and well priced. We landed there because there were no other options in Pienza but it was worth the try.

The restaurant has both outside and indoor seating. As it was November we elected to sit indoors. Some members of our party had salads, others pasta and pizza. The salads were large and tasty, as was the pasta. The pizzas had very thin crusts and excellent flavour. Service was both pleasant and efficient. All other diners in the restaurant were... More

We had a great meal here. Two vegans, two omnivores and all were satisfied. Dedicated menu sections for various diets (omni, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free). English speaking staff were friendly and helpful (Thanks, Francesca!). I would definitely recommend.

We ate here with a group of 14-reservations recommended for this many, but otherwise unnecessary on a cold Monday in November. My wife had veal and mushrooms, I had gnocchi. Both were first rate. Our server, Francesca, was friendly and helpful with menu advice. Overall, a really good experience for an informal dinner.

The menu is varied and has items listed as vegetarian or gluten free which is nice. A large enough restaurant to handle groups and they didn't mind splitting bills. Prices were good for the budget conscious Food was ok. Nothing that good but nothing bad either. No one in our group wanted to return for a second meal but it... More

My husband and I had a great lunch. We were seated in the covered outdoor terrace as it rained lightly outside. We enjoyed the house wine, crostini, pasta and Ribollita. The staff was very friendly and attentive even with a busy lunch atmosphere. I was happy our waitress spoke English and was able to help with recommendations. We were even... More

Seervice, food, and ambiance led to a most enjoyable meal, from the zucchini salad, tomato crostini, pici pasta, and delicious pastry together with local wine. The three women who operate the restaurant are delightful, friendly and warm.
