The place is awesome, 2 times eating there and each time the experience is good. The food is well prepared. The only thing is wine is too expensive, cheapest glass of wine is 5 euro when in other restaurants is 3,5 euro.

After hiking to Pienza we were ready for a rest and some good food. Unfortunately most restaurants were full. Here, we were made to feel very welcome despite the cafe being very busy and enjoyed tasty food and good wine.

Absolutely loved this hidden gem. Had Prosecco, Pecorino di Pienza sample board and bruschetta & kale crostone. Pure magic!

We always seem to stop here for coffee when we visit Pienza. It's a small cozy spot to grab a coffee and pick up a sandwich to go or sit down and relax for a while. The service is always friendly and the prices are moderate.

We (my wife and I) are frequent visitors in Pienza and when talking about Piccolomini (Piccolo - Mini) we are never sure. For enjoying an espresso in the morning, or taking breakfast, you can't miss.

Friends of ours were having lunch here, so we joined them. This is a small cafe, with outside eating in the back, in a rather dark little back yard. Very cramped. But hey, when you're vacationing and just want a quick bite... the salads were good and so was my ham and cheese croissant. Quite a bit walking from the... More

We found this tiny cafe by way of its back entrance which is via a small terrace giving out onto a quiet square off the main street of Pienza. It is certainly compact but it has a good atmosphere and the quality of the food and coffee was very good. Service was swift but not abrupt. A good stop-off for... More
