Great food, fabulous location in the mountains. Family run restaurant. Food and wine were just superb. Friendly service and gorgeous spot on a sunny afternoon.

This is by far one of the best places in the region (and, being southern Tuscany, this is quite something). Anna and Andrea, mother and son, will offer you an exquisite experience of the finest, most mouth-watering food you have ever tasted. No contorted recipes, mind you, but the highest quality ingredients cooked to perfection that make Italian cooking peerless... More

Near Vivo d’Orcia, past Catiglion d’Orcia, coming from San Quirico d’Orcia…, you will find on the side of the road, the restaurant I Lecci. Quite a surprise, gastronomically speaking, with a pleasant and welcoming dinning room and chimney, recommendable during the colder months, and a very attractive terrace with an amazing view of Monte Amiata (the highest of the Val...

My wife and I went to I Lecci before Christmas, with two dear friends of ours who know well the family who runs the restaurant. The place is classic Tuscan beauty - we were there at night and I can only guess how much better it must be during the day. The food and wine were absolutely excellent. For example... More

Brought food to our villa on the first night of our Honeymoon. Beautiful introduction to Tuscan food and wonderful service. Visited restaurant a couple nights later. The most amazing family/staff. So welcoming and friendly. Food was lovely, especially the boar and parpadelle. Lovely bottle of Nobile de Montelpuciano too.

Charming host and waitstaff who were patient with our lack of language skills and faster eating style. One of the best meals I had on the trip - the Cinta Senese steak was one of the most amazing pieces of meat I have ever eaten!! Delicious house wine and everything very reasonably priced. We really had a most excellent time!

We got the tip about this restaurant/agriturismo from a local bar owner. And we could not be more grateful! It is a bit out of the main tourist routes of Val d'Orcia, but you won't regret the detour: the place is peaceful, the signora is a master chef and her son an entertaining host. We were 3 couples and had... More

We stopped here whilst looking for lunch during a days drive between Sienna and Montepulciano on the Tuscan scenic roads. It was a working day, and we were initially the only guests. But that did not stop them pulling out all the charm and friendliness to welcome us - a fire was lit, we were sat in a nice corner... More

We came on bad weather day, so the outside seating area was sadly closed,so we couldn't enjoy the lovely view. But the interior is very nice too. Judged by the guests, this is more tourtisty place than a typical local ristorante. Also the prices are slightly above average. But - I must say we liked the food we were presented... More
