Where to start with La Chiusa? Effortlessly dealing with a (pre-booked by email) table for 16, we had a delicious 4 course lunch over a leisurely few hours. Starting with wonderful and varied antipasti (melanzane parmigiana a particular standout), we then went to the classic...More

The restaurant was a wonderful find. The hospitality, service could not have been better. The food was truly magnificent. The owner, Dania is lovely. I had the funghi porcini, simply grilled with delicious herbs and I will never forget it. Every dish was superb.

My meal here was exceptional. The pasta was divine... probably because they shaved truffles on everything. We had the most memorable white wine that I still cant find in the US. You must make this part of your Italian journey.

The pleasure of Tuscany
Fifteen elegant rooms and a gourmet restaurant made out an ancient oil-mill: that is La Chiusa, a characteristic and intimate place to stay in Montefollonico, a countryside guest house immersed into the Sienna province hills.
We are in Tuscany , between Pienza and Montepulciano, on the ridge which divides Val D'Orcia and Crete Senesi. In the early 70's we pioneered to dedicate our lives to host in this part of the Tuscan countryside. We attended, several years later, the opening of the very firsts local guests houses and the rising of the Tuscan holidays as a must.
Unconsciousness, determination or just by chance? We do not know exactly what led us up here. Without any doubt a common and unconditioned passion for scents and aromas, for the tasteful extra virgin olive oil, for Sangiovese wines, salami and cheese of our Siennese land together with the devotion for the ancient culinary learning handed down from mother to daughter as the old land cultivation techniques passed on from father to son. But what mainly spurred us on stepping forward was the confidence that people would soon or later certainly get back to appreciate simplicity and what our definition of hospitality is. Almost forty years later we are proud to say that we were right.
Hospitality at La Chiusa not only means to open our house's doors to the guests, but to share with them our passion through the knowledge of our country.
