Try the cheese pasta! Its amazing. The waiter is at the beginning of the evening quite stressed and a bit rude because its busy but he gets more relaxed and very funny later. Bisteca fiorentina also very good (very raw though) but quite expensive. Great wine list! All in all recommendable!

I went back to this restaurant again this year. I am reviewing it again because it deserves to be reviewed again. We decided to go with the same pasta dish as before, Tagliatelle that is put hot into a large wheel of pecorino cheese and stirred around until it is thoroughly coated with the cheese. It is one of the... More

Please order the home dish tagliatelle al pecorino. The best there is in whole Tuscany. Heaven on earth.

We ate here twice- one of their featured dishes is homemade pasta that is cooked and then stirred into a large hollow pecorino cheese- a must have. The father who is the main waiter is super friendly and a great salesman- always suggesting just the right dishes. I remember some wild boar dishes which I would also recommend. The atmosphere...

Based on all of the favorable Tripadvisor reviews, my husband and I went to this restaurant in Montefollonico and were disappointed. I wanted to love it based on the reviews. It's a quaint family-owned restaurant. The pasta made in the pecorino cheese wheel was good, but the meat course was average to not so great at best. He should add... More

Albo and his son made us feel right at home and were so loving to our children. When he served us tagliatelle from the pecorino cheese block we were in heaven. It was like he was the maestro and we were his students. I love these hole in the wall places in Italy where the owners are the hosts, the... More

13 Gobbi is known for its pasta mixed in a Pecorino cheese wheel...and for good reason. Besides being a unique spectacle as it is made, it will be the best cheese pasta you have ever had. Finished off with white pepper, it is spectacular. Overlooked at this restaurant is the rest of its fine menu. It is traditional Tuscan food.....but... More

We were encouraged to try 13 Gobbi when the chef at our 1st choice became ill. While a very different style from our 1st choice, we were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of the dishes, the service and the marvelous humor of our host/server. When you're the only tourists in a local restaurant, you know you're in good hands.... More

Food was great . Went twice . Their signature pasta dish is outstanding and good entertainment with the pecorino bowl show. Alba the owner is a kick in the pants. This place is far better than la botte piena , their neighbor.
