We dropped in to La Locanda to have a look only to find it was closing for the season. What a pity. But the owner and host Massimo suggested we try the chocolate souffle which proved to be one of the best desserts ever. Two glasses of wine later, creme brûlée and a tour of the hotel and we left...

WE dropped in one afternoon for just a glass of wine, and asked them to bring us a little antipasto platter. OMG - little?!? ha. And yum! So good, we went back for dinner another night, and their onion soup, filet, and ravioli dishes were awesome. Great wine selection as well. Service was very good, as well.

This place is a cut above the rest. In a castle yet modern, warm and relaxing. Had some really lovely Italian food but with modern twist, friendly attentive staff and nice surroundings. Wine a bit overpriced for Italy!!!

We chose this restaurant and 11 of us went for dinner, when we spent the night in Pienza and I must say that the restaurant lived up to our expectations. The place is described as magic, we all thought it was a beautiful, peaceful oasis. Massimo, the owner, was not only charming and pleasant, but extremely accommodating. The different dishes... More

The menu is not long, it means that the ingredients are fresh. The meat, Chianina, is the king and the steak "Costata" is the best one I have ever eaten. Also the first dishes are very good, mainly local tuscan dishes with some surprises. The sweets are very good. Last but not least, the wine list is a real masterpiece.

we called in to have an early evening drink with a view to booking a large table for a birthday dinner that we were going to celebrate whilst on holiday in the area. The manager seated us at a terrace table. The drinks took 15 minutes to arrive and the bill was a whopping €40 for 4 Aperol Spritzers -... More

This old hotel offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and has managed to retain the old castle feeling. The rooms are nice and also have air conditioning, although the beds are hard and the shower is small. The breakfast is included and the bacon and eggs are very good as are the cold cuts and lovely bread. The staff... More

We had dinner at La Locanda with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. I had passed by the village before but never stopped. The setting is stunning, inside the perfectly preserved castle. Inside is truly romantic and there is a small terrace with great views of the crete senesi. We had a table on the other terrace. No... More
