La Guardiola is not in Manchester but in the beautiful Tuscan countryside in the town of Monticchielo! We enjoyed a lovely lunch on the garden terrace of the restaurant. We were able to purchase excellent local wine and olive oil directly. The Montalcino wine was excellent when we pened it back at home.

Visited Monticciello on the way to Pienza. Lovely hillside village with a museum and outdoor artwork on display. Found this restaurant where they served a nice selection of food and quality local wines by the glass. Must mention the gelato - particularly good.

Be sure to visit this little cafe when you visit Montichiello, because the view on the valley is very beautiful. Simple food, very good quality, they serve mostly salads, wine, coffee and delicious ice-cream. The staff was very friendly (Federico).

Beautiful view. Much larger than it looks from the outside. The "cheese hour" is an amazing wine/cheese tasting. Fantastic experience!

The terrace is very relaxing. People are friendly. They serve Salads, prociuto (ham), cheese, etc. The products are very tasty. But if you are looking for cooked dish this will not be the place to be

Had lovely quality food ( delicious salads) under a fig tree with stunning views. Friendly staff. Booked through tripadvisor a couple of hours before - which was worth doing as the place did get busy later and we were rewarded with the best table for having booked. Lunch food such as salads etc so more geared to a lighter meal.... More
