Great food with home made pasta. Excellent choice from menu - along with great atmosphere. The log fire ( used for barbecuing) was well used.

We had one of our best meals in Italy. The owners are super kind and treated us very well, offering us a great food in an excelent spot. I definitively reccomend and wish to return soon!

My wife and I have eaten in La Chiocciola often over the past five years. We have always been quite pleased with their food. There pastas are awesome and you must try their pici!

It was a great experience, the food was delicious all made with fresh ingredients. The place is very pleasant you can stay inside of the restaurant or outside enjoying the fresh air and surrounded by beautiful flowers and spices grown in the garden. The staff were very professional and very friendly.

Most unfriendly service and owner ever met in italy. Didn't have change on a 20 eur note (i guess that's what they tell Chinese tourists), didn't want 2 warm up milk for a baby, as bad ad it can be!!

Very good food, tasty, meat in some red wine sous is very good, ravioli also is beautifull. White home wine is ok, nothing special, but you can drink 2 glasses. Place is nice, and garden is also nice.

Had a very nice dinner in the garden settings outside. Staff was nice and helpful and the food was excellent. Best restaurant experience I had in Pienza.

Service was poor. You don't get a wine glass if you drink house wine only the tumbler on the table! We ordered caprese but the tomatoes were very over ripe and we were told they were out of season- why serve it if it's out of season but we had lovely tomatoes in other restaurants. Second course of chicken salad... More

We had a great dinner at La Chipcciola while visiting Pienza for a couple hours. As soon as you walk in, you know you have found something special. The place is very uniquely decorated and the service was top notch. Of course the Italian food was incredible, but coming from Texas, we are particular about our beef and steaks, and... More

We loved the pasta here more than the Rick Steves recommended restaurant in Siena. Unfortunately no pizza for lunch but loved the pasta. Only downside was the bread wasn't very flavorful. And right next to parking!
