This was the only restaurant open on the night we stayed in Castel Brunello and we were very glad it was. The location was really terrific. We ate outdoors on a neat little piazza. It is truly a hidden gem. We had a great quirky...More

Sant'Angelo is a beautiful, little town close to Montalcino, but without the big crowds. Il Leccio has a nice outdoor sitting area. The food is good with home-made pasta. However the wines in the shop are overpriced.

Stopped here while on a wine tour. Loved the mid-day meal, and you can't beat the view. You have to know how to get here; luckily, our guide knew the place.

Really nice place, in a medieval village, tuscan dishes, a lot of choices, try the seasonal ones! Meat above average, good local wine and a wine shop just few meters away from the restaurant where you can have the after dinner!

A friend recommended we try it, so we made a reservation and were not disappointed by the food. The antipasto platter was exceptionally good. The fried vegetables were amazing. My daughter had the chicken, looked like fried nuggets, but the best you will ever taste....More

Recommended by the owner of a winery nearby after a tour. Went for a late lunch on a Tuesday. They were accommodating and informed us that the kitchen will be closing in 10 minutes, so the Tasting Menu will not be available. With that information...More
