We've been here a week and every place has been excellent. This cool place offers great food, great local wine and fresh preparations that are creative. Great service and atmosphere in old city with beautiful views. Love it.

“Ate there twice”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

La Torretta was just a short walk from Locanda Degli Artisti where we were staying. We found the menu to be very creative and the food and wine to be very good. The service was friendly and efficient and we would definitely return if we were in the area. We highly recommend the soups!

“wonderful”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

we enjoyed this restaurant so much for a lovely lunch that we just went back for dinner. the food is cooked to order with care and beautifully presented. the papa al pomodore (tomato bread soup) is described as "best in the world" which indeed it is! the mille feuille dessert has an unusual presentation and is filled with hazelnut cream. the pasta was superb. while there was not a vegetarian selection on the menu, the owner was only too happy to oblige. this restaurant is easy to fine - directly inside the arch in the old part of town - highly recommended by everyone in our party of 8. by the way, they serve a terrific olive oil, and the balsamic vinegar is the best we have ever tasted, so we are bringing back a jug of it to the states!!!

“Amazing restaurant in a tiny town”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Right by the entrance to the old part of Chianciano Terme (Chianciano Vecchia) - exactly next to the beautiful old town gate - you will find LA TORETTA. From the outside this old building is charming - and from the inside even more. Very authentic - very Italian. And then the food: simply great food. The owner is extremely friendly, fun and informative. We simply LOVE this place. Give it a try. You will not regret it! Jette and Robert Rasmussen, Denmark and United States

“Serendipity”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

After a cold, rainy day in underwhelming Montepulciano, we stopped in Chianciano Terme for sustenance. La Torretta, billed as a "modern Tuscan bistro", was the first place we came upon as it is near the entrance of the old town. How lucky for us. This was easily one of the best meals we had in Italy. Food was fresh and interestingly prepared: croquettes in pureed beans and purple potatoes, vegetable ravioli with the sweetest tomatoes ever, pecorino, gorgonzola, foam and bacon tortellini and for dessert, tiramisu. Everything was absolutely delicious. I loved the simple but trendy décor. The complimentary prosecco and amuse were a bonus. They carry many of the amazing Baladin beers as well if you need a break from drinking wine. What I loved the most was the friendliness of our server (maybe the owner or manager?) and his apparent passion for providing this amazing meal for us. Make sure you try this restaurant if you are in the area!
