I can't really speak to the quality of the food, because after 30 minutes we didn't even have menus. We are actually quite patient and understand that the pace of eating in Italy is very different than in the US, but one would expect to...More

Certainly in Italy it is very different from the United States, we start the service at 12am and before that time we are doing other things, if you do not ask the waiter to sit at 11.30 you will only notice that the waiters are...More

No wonder it is a Michelin restaurant! I was so impressed with the wine selection. Enjoyed the server staff banter with us in our different languages. Staff made good local wine recommendations. Our table was very satisfied with the Ratatouille, pasta with pork, and pigeon.

Service was friendly and helpful. Our food was very good; we especially enjoyed our rabbit entree. Our bottle of Martin de Nero vino rosso was excellent. We were seated inside the restaurant, as the outdoor tables were already taken. It turned out well as our...More

We had a fabulous lunch here! Amazing food with wonderful service. Would recommend sitting indoors during the summer as the outdoor sitting was a little buggy, but didn't impact the amazing experience!

The Osteria del Leone, as documents testify, has always been part of the life of this ancient village. Located in one of the town’s oldest houses on the corner of Via dei Mulini and the square with the thermal pool, it has four welcoming, hospitable rooms and an enclosed garden, able to seat a total of 70 people.The restaurant is characterized by a large entrance area with an antique bar, followed by three comfortable, brightly-colored rooms decorated with local nineteenth-century furniture and spacious, well-appointed tables set a reasonable distance apart, accommodating up to 40 people. In the summer, a pleasant inside garden, cool, well-kept, and protected from the elements, can hold another 30 people.The menu features flavorful typical Tuscan cooking and changes more or less monthly to keep up with the changing seasons, but always maintaining some “classics,” local specialties like the hand-rolled long strands of pasta called “pici,” served for example with garlic sauce, or perfectly grilled Florentine beefsteak, according to some connoisseurs among the best in the area. A variety of goat’s-milk and sheep’s-milk Tuscan cheeses and homemade desserts, accompanied by a nice selection of dessert wines and liqueurs, bring the meal to a close.The wine list contains about 250 labels, with a broad selection of the best Tuscan wines. Montalcino and Montepulciano are well-represented, of course, but other fine Italian wines are not neglected; all the wines can also be bought in the nearby Enoteca del Leone.The staff is very courteous, young and pleasantly informal.
