“Headless chicken for dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

La Terrazza commands the best position in Bagno Vignoni Square. The food is very nice. But the service, when I was there, was truly Fawlty Towers. They took a long time deciding whether the could accommodate my group of seven on 17 August at 8.30pm. Once we got a table we were completely forgotten about. When we managed to call a waiter to our table to take our order her attention went somewhere else halfway through ordering. There was no way to call her attention back to our order. No drinks order was taken. Later when we wanted to order our drinks the male waiter said he would bring a drinks menu (which we did not need) and then he disappeared, never to be seen again. Once we got our food and drinks we were satisfied with the food. When it was time to pay, just before 10pm it was totally impossible to get any waiter to come to our table, so I walked up to the till to pay. "Just a moment, the kitchen is closing soon" the waitress said and continued to feed information into the kitchen via computer. She continued with this for three different tables until I raised my voice and then she walked me to another part of the restaurant where I could finally pay my bill.

“Great place for a drink and a bite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

I have many times enjoyed a glass of excellent wine and occasionally a delicious Tuscan dish in this pleasant cafe overlooking the pool. Always happy to be back, thanks to the service and the menu.

“Great View of a Unique Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

We enjoyed a great lunch while visiting this unique town. Very friendly service and good food. For those beer lovers (yes, in Italy no less), the Iris from Birrificio San Quirico was very enjoyable. Worth a visit.

“Terribly disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 September 2012 via mobile

Three years ago we enjoyed a very nice meal here, so looking to end our trip to Tuscany on a high note, we decided to come back to La Terrazza. What a disappointment from start to finish. At arival, the waitresses were just outright unfriendly and treated us with disdain. The place was half empty, yet lots of tables were so-called reserved although nobody showed up in the two hours we were there. Wines we ordered we not in stock and the wine, a Brunello, she recommended was not on par for the price. and the food... certainly not the same quality as what we had gotten used to in many small osterias in the area. The carpaccio was dull, the tagliata (thin sliced beef) very badly cut with more fat than meat (most were white, as opposed to red cooked meat pieces). For me the service was the low point though. When she came to clear the tables and clearly saw that we had barely touched the tagliata she asked if we had eaten well. We politely answered that the meat was not very tasty and very fatty. She just nodded and took the food away. Waitresses can make up a lot of bad experience from the kitchen and can make it worse. She opted for the last.
