On our way from Pienza to Montepulciano we stopped in Montichiello for lunch. Luckily we were able to get a table in La Cantina. The place is very nicely decorated and the food was simply very good. Service was very friendly and accurate and no...More

We were disappointed not to be able to book the Osteria de la Porte (the 'father' or senior restaurant of this small group) but found La Cantina to be a fabulous alternative with a near identical menu. The ambience is warm, the room itself is...More

We were surprised how nice it look when we walked into the restaurant. In a small quiet village, we didn't expected such a nice high end restaurant. The food was excellent, and service was wonderful. I'd love to go back.

My grandson and I came here as an introductory dinner for a culinary/biking tour with Cicloposse tours, and the experience knocked our socks off. Because the group was relatively large, twelve people, the meal was set except for dessert, in which we had our choice...More

I held my post-wedding dinner at La Porta a few weeks ago. I had 50 guests and wanted to go somewhere different than where all our other events were hosted. I emailed with Daria a few times and set it all up with no problems....More

We recently had dinner at La Cantina twice! The food and wine was exceptional! The service was very good. We appreciated the amuse-bouche and glass of Prosseco before we ordered. The decor is unique with the vaulted ceiling. I look forward to our next visit!

Great place. We had the Easter dinner with kids and the staff was always available for any request. Food and wine as expected, tasteful and well serviced. Prices mid/high, but strongly recommended.

La Cantina is a lovely traditional restaurant with terracotta tiled floor and vaulted brick ceiling. We enjoyed a four course dinner paired with local wines. The food, Antipasti, Risotto, Pork with Spinach apple sauce and roast potatoes, then Panna Cotta with red berries, was sensational....More

A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.
