One of our Tuscany trip stop definitely worth it. Place is packed, so make a reservation and be patient, sometimes it takes a bit longer to be served, but wait! Mine raviolli were amazing! Enjoy the view and try to get a table on the outside!

We spend roughly 8 weeks in Tuscany each year, and visit Daria's Osteria La Porta as often as we can - bringing friends and guest whenever possible. The food is always fresh and tasty, often quite original, and the service is attentive, flexible and varm helping meet the at times demanding guest requests. The atmosphere inside is very homely yet... More

This spot is incredible. Beautiful views from the edge of an incredibly charming small walled village, with amazing food and service. The prosciutto and local cheese with truffle was one of the best things we tried (if not the best) on our trip. We will certainly be back someday!

The owner, Daria, greeted us with a huge warm smile and welcomed us in. She then proceeded to explain to us the menu and the specials of the day. One of the items was "pici in white ragu of duck" and it was simply fantastic. Then we spotted the chocolate salami for dessert - we could choose one, so we... More

I cannot recommend this place enough, and it would be a shame to miss out on your journey through Tuscany. Reservation recommended. The food is amazing, whether you are in the mood for pasta or protein. If you can get a table outside, you have amazing views of the valleys of Tuscany while you eat. We were only in Tuscany...

They takes good care of their guest despite the numbers of pax. They open up more when you return again the second night. Food is excellent too. Couldn't fault the wine. Price bit on high side, but its worth it.

We had a lovely lunch here out on the patio overlooking the valley. The food was very good -- traditional Tuscan fare but very well executed. A place to linger.

We travelled with a family for a week in Tuscany and La Portacwas clearly the best place of all. They have an amazing chef! Try the quail and barley risotto. And if the weather permits, sit outside for a spectacular view of Val d'Orcia!

We went here quite late in the evening so we couldn't stay on the terrace but from what i could see you get a wonderful panoramic view. Now for the food, I know they were ready to close the kitchen but still they turned out extraordinary dishes. All the dishes were amazing, especially the beef cheek.
