We enjoyed this restaurant. The roasted lamb was excellent. The ravioli dish was very good. Expect dishes prepared simply with ingredients raised and grown on-site. The service was also friendly.

The Relais San Bruno B&B recommended this wonderful location about 10 minutes away from the town of Pienza. This beautiful organic farm provided a truly Tuscan experience. We started with a tour of the farm and cheese kitchen, and then enjoyed a beautiful lunch with a view. The cheese made on site and other locally sourced ingredients, paired with their... More

Very accommodating. We enjoyed the tour and the different cheeses. Our host was pleasant and knowledgeable. We returned for a party on a Friday evening with brick oven pizza, local dishes and music. Very enjoyable evening.

For travelers who prefer an intimate and private tour away from the crowd, this one arranged by Tuscany Taste Tour is a must. The proprietors, couple Ulisse and Sandra, personally gave a tour of the farm and ran us through their family's cheese-making process. Sandra was very animated and eager to give the tour, giving their objectives for the farm,... More

My family of four, which includes our twin daughters who were just turning 13, visited Podere Il Casale for lunch during our family vacation in Italy. Our travel agent recommended this activity and made all the arrangements. It is a beautiful setting in Tuscany, the service was great and the food was delicious. We especially enjoyed the sampling of cheeses... More

This is an example of the sad fact, that organic food is not necessarily good. The site is incredibly beautiful, with a magnificant view of the valley and Monte Amiata. The staff were very nice and friendly. Unfortunately, the food was plain and not good enough, although pricy.

It was our last evening in Tuscany and we managed to book a Pizza Cooking class for all 11 of our family (7 adults and 4 kids ages 9 to 15). It is impossible to know which of us had more fun; or did the best job with their own pizzas! Piero Luigi was our teacher and excels in both... More

The farm to table here was truly something I will never forget. The food - especially the cheese plate was absolutely incredible and the location could not have been more gorgeous! Absolutely loved it! Service was incredibly slow ... Which got annoying at times because we were really hungry... But the food far outweighed this! Probably one of the best... More

Fine dining you can combine with camping (but take into account peacocks waking you up early in the morning). Amazing view and good food, all local and perfect good house wine.
