We stumbled on this sidewalk cafe during the mid afternoon doldrums in Pienza. It has a well-shaded terrace and offered a cool respite from the midday sun. The food was basic and good and the atmosphere was perfect.

We wandered in early (7:30pm) and were seated right away by the kind and friendly proprietress. Graciously put up with our poor Italian (she spoke English very well but we were practicing our Italian). Prompt service, good food. Restaurant full by 8:15pm We had several different pici (local pasta) dishes, Steak with balsamic sauce, and a lovely homemade tiramisu. Great bottle of Brunello di Montalcino.
Would go back in a heartbeat-great experience all the way around.

Stopped by and although we had no reservation, they made room for our group of four. Food was very good, reasonably priced and good wine.
The charm of the place itself is worth eating there.

The restaurant of our choice was full so we ended up going to Baccus - a happy change of plan, as it turned out. This is a modest, unpretentious osteria with authentic rustic cooking and a warm welcome. To start with, we had crostini - more like traditional slabs of country toast, with very flavoursome toppings. For mains, we both had pici - Tuscan pasta whose flour is made from spelt. Mine was with cinghiale ragù, my partner's with truffles. Neither of us could find fault with either dish. This was our third restaurant in Tuscany and definitely the best of the three. In addition, the local house red wine was superior to the flights we had tasted in the other, more "upmarket" places. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Altogether, a most pleasant evening.

My husband and I had lunch here during the New Year holiday period when Pienza was crowded. Fortunately, we decided to eat early because the Osteria was already crowded and we managed to get the last table. On a cold, wet day, the warm atmosphere and good home style Tuscan food was just what we needed. Service was excellent even though they were busy. Would thoroughly recommend.
