Description: The tavern is located in proximity of the entrance door of Monticchiello, a nice medieval village near Pienza.With its few places (it is better to reserve), it proposes an elegant room, furnished with taste in typical tuscan style, it is comfortable and familiar. The courtesy and the professionality of the owner, Daria, young and passionate sommelier, are an optimal guide in the choice of the plates and the wines. During the beautiful season it is possible to eat in the terrace, enjoying a wonderful sight on Pienza, the Val d'Orcia and the Amiata.Accommodation in Monticchiello- The residence "Il Torrino" is a panoramic apartment obtained from the restauration of an ancient tower belonging to the boundaries of the medieval suburb Monticchiello. The structure, in proximity of the principal access to the village, has been completely restructured from the owner with taste and scrupulous care of the details. At guests' disposal a double room and a living-room with couch-bed and TV; panoramic view on Pienza and the Val d’Orcia. The prices for the weekly stay change according to the season and are comprehensive of heating, final cleaning, household linen. For briefer stays contact the owner.

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

This is very friendly and cozy place right at the entrance of the citadel. Good, lively atmosphere here at lunch on a July day. Friendly hostess spoke impeccable English and French, too. Dishes were good but not remarkable. But we had to wait for a very long time, even for our appetizer, which was just a platter of cold cuts, as the restaurant was busy and the kitchen seemed to have a hard time coping.

“Great Food in Lovely town”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

We stayed for 5 days in Monticchiello and visited this restaurant twice with my family .Osteria La Porta overlooks the country side and the town of Pienza around 6kms away. This restaurant has fantastic local food at reasonable prices. We had the 1kg T-Bone steak which was fantastic and the Ravioli was perfect. Inside the restaurant I found it cosy and the service was very good. If you get the chance sit out the patio overlooking the countryside late in the late afternoon with a good bottle of wine.- the view of the sunset is beautiful

“Delicious with a gorgeous view”
Reviewed 28 July 2014 via mobile

We were recommended La Porta by our hosts in San Albino for our final night in Tuscany. We were blown away by the quality of food and wine! They can even match the wines to your meal for you. If we ever come back to Tuscany this will be the first place we visit. Thanks guys!

Thank Angela W
