We ended up here by chance after La Porta messed up our reservation (and were quite rude about it). Thank goodness we did! We had an amazing meal here - the delicious homemade pici and tagliatelle, the best rabbit dish, and the light semifreddo. The decor is quaint and not crowded - a lovely intimate and relaxed setting. The owner was so friendly and knowledgeable - telling us about the food and wine, and recommending other places to eat. She makes the desserts and her husband is the chef. All in all a very memorable meal. Go into town and go here!

Most people seem to go to the bustling restaurant by the old gates of Montichiello but if you walk a little further up the hill you get to La Taverna di Moranda on the left and a truly delicious meal in an atmospheric antique cellar. The menu is reasonably small but everything is freshly prepared and cooked to perfection. We particularly love the pasta with summer vegetables, the pasta with duck sauce, the lamb, the tagliata. Consistent and excellent. Francoise and Massimo we'll be back soon.

Went there 12 years ago. Outstanding!! Very glad to read it's still wonderful. The setting, Montechiello, the picci with cinghialle - best pasta in Italy.

This small restaurant is a short walk up the hill through the entry gate to the city, easy to miss if you don't explore.

The setting is beautiful, rustic in nature. The food is incredible, same for the wine, prices reasonable. The owners are French and very friendly. When in Monticchiello, don't miss it.

This little Tuscan gem, operated by Francoise and Massimo, is not to be missed. The setting is quaint, the food and wine is outstanding, and the proprietors' attention to detail is exemplary. We will return soon.
