One doesn't ordinarily expect much from restaurants that are attached to relatively remote visitor destinations and, with the Monastery of Monte Oliveto Maggiore being the stupendous place it is, one might not be too disappointed if the food offerings at this place housed in the entry tower to the monastery complex were just average. That said, I wasn't expecting much... More

The host was very knowledgable, friendly and welcoming. Wines are good - affordable and enjoyable. Small venue but a hidden gem.

We did not visit the monastery to dine, but surprisingly we found they offered food.We had a light lunch, enjoying fresh ingredients on our salads. For dessert we tried the pecorino sheep’s cheese, learned why Italians rave about it. Located inside the 14th century tower, the small restaurant is a most scenic place to dine. Two Italian thumbs up for... More

Visiting the Monte Oliveto Maggiore Abbey, we stopped with a group of friends for dinner in this restaurant located in such historical and artistic place of Tuscany. Excellent quality of food and wine, service and cleaness provided very carefully.

We dined on salami, salad, open label wine and cake. The cakes were lovely, especially as they kindly provided a mixture of them all, the chocolate similar to sacher, was excellent. Staff were very helpful and efficient. Nice setting after visiting the monastery. Simon Hanley +447828417512

By the end of the visit of the abbey, exhausted by heat, hungry and tired we decided not to drive away but to try what did not seemed very attractive at first sight: a restaurant located at the entrance of the outer walls of the abbey. Actually, it was a nice surprise: good, polite and quick service by what seemed... More

Located next to the monastery in a beautiful setting, we had a very tasty meal with great service. The local wine was very smooth, the server was super friendly. The pasta was scrumptious.

We had lunch before visiting the monastery. It was a chilly day so we ate inside. It is a family run restaurant and is lovely and unpretentious. We had a delicious lunch with a carafe of house red wine. They have a large terrace which must be wonderful when the weather is warmer. Would highly recommend.

We had dinner and breakfast here whilst staying at the abbey's guest house. Despite La Torre being the only eating place on the site for visitors, it is does not exploit its monopoly. The service is welcoming and relaxed, the choice good and the prices reasonable. We had homemade pici which I followed with a not-so-good sausage and beans. My... More
