Enjoyed our meal here very much. Great service and interesting menu. We arrived approx 7:30 and the place was empty. By 8:30 it was completely filled with locals. House wine was delicious and reasonable. Dinner options very creative.

Visiting in November, this was still busy at Thursday lunchtime - always book ahead. Food is superb, deceptively straightforward, but based on handmade pasta. Beautiful medieval stone building. If there's a better place to go for lunch, I've yet to find it.

Just of the road from Montalcino to Grosetto, you would miss the village unless you were looking for it. However, you should make the effort to find this gem. Just make sure you book in advance. The Restaurant is small and relaxing thanks to the helpful and unhurried service. The food is delicious, fresh local products cooked as only the... More

Well worth the journey. Location is superb, and if you are lucky to visit on a warm evening, outside eating is recommended. best ever starter broccoli tart, melt in the mouth. Tiramisu was to die for.

In the main Piazza of the small village of Sant Angelo, Il Leccio is off the main tourist town route, but it was the culinary highlight of our trip. I think we just squeezed in at 8pm on a Thursday evening after ringing just a few minutes ahead. Like every other restaurant in the Montalcino district this was an Enoteca/Restaurant... More

Had the tasting menu and a bottle of their 2010 Chianti Classico! Wine was fantastic and reasonably priced. First two courses of the tasting menu de Luca were outstanding! Mushroom flan and homemade ravioli were just perfect! Next came fried chicken?!?! Which was salty, looked like chicken nuggets with flash fried veges on top:( only disappointment of the night and...

Beautiful setting, amazing food, excellent wine...The first day we sat outside under umbrellas on a beautiful day in Sant'Angelo Del Colle. The next day was overcast with scattered showers so we chose inside. Both options are very comfortable and casual. The restaurant is right in the square and is very popular. Once we looked at the menu we knew why.... More

We stayed about an hour away near Montepulciano, but did some wine tasting in Montalcino. Our hotel had recommended il Leccio for my birthday lunch. All I can say is that the level of authenticity and the fact that il Leccio is in a small town with only three restaurants makes you feel like you're a world away. We had... More
