“Secret Tuscan gem in Bolgheri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

We had a wonderful lunch at La Taverna del Pittore. Our waiter, Luciano, provided exceptional service and was also the artist of the menu cover and other lovely pieces throughout the restaurant. The restaurant, set atop a hill in the beautiful village of Bolgheri, is owned by the D'Andrea family who made my boyfriend and I feel like a part of the family, very welcoming atmosphere. The food was delicious and the presentation was excellent. The local wine can not be beat, but the highlight of our dining experience was the local Limoncello, made with oranges.....it was incredible!!
I highly recommend this lovely family owned restaurant in Bolgheri and can not wait to go back myself.

“Good food, but way too long wait”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

We went to this restaurant yesterday night. The place is really lovely, on the top of the small village of Bolgheri. However we had to wait for so long to be seated (fair enough as we did not book), but also to be served (which I found a bit less fair). Long story short, we arrived at 9pm, were seated at 9.50pm, had our starter at 10.40pm and our main at 11.10pm. Food and wine were good. If you decide to go there remember to BOOK (at least in peak season), even though this will probably not help with the wait after you are seated.

“Through the town on the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2012

We had a lovely lunch with excellent local red wine (house wine) at Bolgheri on the top of the hill of the old town round the corner. You have to walk to the town as it is restricted to drive through and the parking is down on the right when you arrive at Bolgheri. There is much to see around, a lot of famous vineries along the e Cypress alley that leads to Bolgheri and along the country roads around. The restaurant Pittore was very good, we had just a ravioli and a lasagne for the lunch but the menu was full of local specialities. The sun was shining and we were eating out at the terrace where nice parasols had been set up for the tables. Though we were on a hill we could not see much as there was a stone wall opposite but even that was pretty.

“Beautiful restuarant .....classic Tuscan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2011

Pretty restuarant in beautiful Bolgheri. If you are there when the weather is agreeable there is nothing better than sitting outside to enjoy your meal. Well rounded variety of fish and meat and of course the local wines are not to be missed.

“Amazing food, great owner, beautiful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2011

This restaurant was recommended to us and lived up to our expectations. The food was wonderful and I would have gone back every day had we been staying nearer. The owner was very welcoming and extremely helpful with a someone in the party who had problems eating. The price was excellent for the quality....... what more can I say other than the location is beautiful.
