We had a couple of panini and bottled water for lunch on our walk from Pienza to Montepulciano. The food was quite good, the service friendly, and the view fantastic.

We had a fantastic dinner at La Porta. The food is wonderfully prepared and presented. We had made reservations using "The Fork" website and was confirmed by the restaurant via email. My only suggestion if making a reservation for the terrace and you want a table along the railing request at the time you make the reservation. We were in... More

The Barley Risotto with Black Truffle is the single best plate of food I have ever been served. We drove 2 hours out of our way to eat here a second time.

The outdoor terrace facing the Val D'Orcia was so pretty! Food, wine and dessert were all fantastic, and with the sun out, it was a memorable lunch indeed. Service staff was good and prompt. Would definitely revisit if I have a chance.

It is tucked away in the small town of montichello. The food is so good that we ended up eating here for two nights out of our three night stay in Tuscany. Daria is an amazing host and she made awesome food and wine recommendations.  We tried the burrata cheese dish, spinach ricotta pasta, bean soup, truffle pasta - all... More

The atmosphere of this restaurant is great - whether it is a couples trip or a trip with friends! Prices are reasonable and the staff is super nice. Appetizers and wide selection of wines is the best thing the restaurant has!

Very popular restaurant with inside and balcony seating. Had a tasting menu including several local pastas and three types of Pecorino cheese with jams - unusual combination for us but quite common locally. Food cooked, presented and served well. Delicious local wine. Even though it was busy, we were able to eat a leisurely lunch. We were well looked after.

Our lunch at la porta could not have been better. We arrived for a 12:30 reservation and were seated on the charming terrace with fantasic view of Val d'Orcia on a warm,summy day. Service was just right. We shared the prosciutto with warm, melted peccorino with truffles. Yum. Then a generous and fresh insalate misto, pici with ragu sauce, and... More

Came back here for an evening in colder weather-we had only eaten on the terrace in high summer-but still very high standard of food and service all round, and good wine recommendations- worth a detour (but if you can, also stay in Monticchiello, a beautiful place).
