I've already written about this great restaurant in my review of the hotel, but the food and hospitality is so good that it's worth giving it a separate review. On a cold December night, I tucked into pasta with wild boar sauce, succulent roast rabbit with herb- and onion-flavoured potato-purée, and for dessert a "bavarese agli agrumi", a kind of mousse made with fresh citrus-fruit, light and delicious. Add to that a large carafe of good house wine, a litre of sparkling water and coffee, the whole lot for 20€. Incredible value and real quality. The place was packed with locals! No wonder. The décor is a little cold, though that is more than compensated for by the warmth and friendliness of this family-run establishment. On long summer evenings, it would be a wonderful spot to enjoy the panoramic view over the Val d'Orcia.

A family run restaurant/hotel, under new management since 2013. Unimaginably excellent fish dishes. Plus superb quality Tuscan cooking. Delectable house
wines.

OK we arrived 735pm just when opened. We ordered pizza pasta and secondi meat. If you are in hurry and taking 2 hours 15 minutes with family this is not the place. HOWEVER we will be going back k again and again taking our time, house wine they make is very good, pizza truffle pasta and lamb chops excellent!

Perfect except for the lack of service and taking the over 2 hours

Good evening, Mr Stephen
I thank you for the beautiful review on the kitchen and thank you also to have kept their promise to come back and visit.
I am very sorry if we did have to wait on the first night but as will be seen (fortunately) we had many customers.
I can assure you that we do not give priority to anyone .. simply follow a logical order of commands and there are dishes that sometimes require more work than others.
Tonight, though there was still a lot of people, we hope to have it served faster.
Thanks again for your preference.
See you soon
Luca

Mi scuso anche con lei per il disservizio offerto a lei e al suo compagno.
Il resto può leggerlo nell'altra recensione.

We spent 2 months in San Quirico, went to almost all the restaurants in town and just outside of town and this one was simply the best. It's quirky in that you have to walk through a working gas station to get to the front door but the food and service was the best we have ever had in Italy! Once inside the restaurant, all the windows in the back overlook the Val d'Orcia and Pienza. The views are as wonderful as the food. Don't let the gas station deter you or you'll miss the best food in the area.
