We went for an evening meal in this little restaurant. The starters were quite nice. However, the main course of ravioli lacked flavour, something was missing. The children alas were not impressed with the pici.
The most disappointing aspect to this restaurant was the lack of a carafe of house wine. We went for a glass of local wine each as we were driving. When the bill came we were charged 8 euro per glass. The amount of wine in the glass was quite minimal. I am not a cynical person but one gets the sense the profit is made on the wine in this restaurant.
The service was efficient but lacked a personL touch. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant.

We went to this restaurant twice and both times found the food to be excellent and the service exceptional.

Wonderful atmosphere - it is worth a trip to Montefollonico just to eat here. Very large selection of local wines, great food, great atmosphere. Must try the gnocchi!

We were recommended by the owner of the agriturismo we stayed in Pienza. The osteria is more than worth driving to. Food was perfect. Great selection of wines. One of the best restaurant we experienced in Italy.

A place to go if you enjoy local tuscan beef. A liitle bit cramped inside but in the summer they have outside eating. The wines are on the expensive side and the service could be better!
