We have spent few days around Montalcino and if I would be asked to choose one restaurant to return it would surely be vecchio forno. although it is not a "small family run restaurant in Tuscany" what all tourists are looking for, it is very very good. Try pasta with duck and very fresh and tasty meals from the daily menu. Well done ragazzi!

We really wanted to love this place. We were staying at the hotel and having looked at trip advisor we booked a table right away with high hopes for a great meal. We at out in San Quirico for lunch but were so disappointed with the food at Al Vecchio Forno.

The staff were excellent and the setting in the garden was really lovely, but the food missed the mark. We sent the tomato, chilli and garlic pici back because it was almost inedible. The garlic was so strong and tasted like it could have been burned, but the staff were excellent and insisted on replacing it. The chicken main course was very dry. Maybe we came on an off night but we weren't impress. We'd try again since the setting was so nice, but it was an expensive disappointment.

This was one of those two hour amazingly delicious lunches on a lazy Sunday, where we shared a plate of Caprese salad with mozzarella dripping with freshness and unbelievably flavorful tomatoes; fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with ricotta cheese - unreal; absolutely perfectly executed picci with wild board ragout; sublime tagleatelle with porcini, despite the fact that porcini were dried and reconstituted (May is not a fresh porcini season); a bottle of wonderful local red; panna cotta with caramello; and Vin Santo with cantucci - always a great way to end a Tuscan feast. Outstanding!

We came to Vitozza, and after a great walk we headed to this restaurant right in center of San Quirico. Place was empty, owners played with children inside. Still, we were welcome, put at the best table, and the food was simply irreproachable - local mushrooms soup, cozze, semifreddo - everything was delicious. And great service. Grazie mille!

Kid friendly wonderful ambiance in Tuscany.

The food was amazing and their wine selection is to die for. We had an amazing experience and the food was fantastic.

The tables are outdoors so you have to be okay with occasional bugs but other than that everything was wonderful.
