This is a very good local restaurant near Il Canto del Sole. It features good local dishes, good wines, and great service. We went there twice and thoroughly enjoyed both meals. Highly recommended for anyone staying at Il Canto del Sole.

My brother and I initially arrived with 3 friends who wanted to have lunch while we just wanted a glass of wine while waiting for other people. Not only when we asked for a table for 5, the waitress did not hide the fact that...she was not happy with 2 people taking space and not eating, she later made unpleasant comments when our other friends joined and decided to have lunch. As the comments made us feel unwelcome we decided to go for a pizza. I appreciate waitering is a difficult job but flexibility and a smile should be part of the package.More

The food was delicious and the staff super helpful. I realised half way through my meal that I had forgotten my purse and they were so kind and let me return and pay later. ☺️ Thank you!!!

Nice ambient, good TA reviews, however our experience is unfortunately different. Service was below average, unfriendly waitresses and slow. We have eaten pasta, the ones with rabbit where very good, recommended, the red pasta with pecorino cheese very average. Perhaps we were just not lucky...with the food and service.More

Our hosts at a local B and B recommended this restaurant and we were glad they did. Our server was very nice and helpful, and the steak we shared was delicious. The wine she suggested went perfectly with our meal, and all and all we...had a wonderful experience.More

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B host and we enjoyed it so much that we dined there twice. Most everything on the menu is good, but in my judgment they're at their best when grilling various meats and fish on their wood fire grill....Go for their grilled meats accompanied by a tasty and affordable Chianti Classico from a more than respectable wine list and you'll be a happy camper. We found the owners and their wait staff to be extremely inviting and helpful.More

Restaurant had a lot of charm and atmosphere. Seemed like a local favorite. It also seems like it’s the only upscale dining experience in town. We were underwhelmed by the food. Wine list was extensive but seemed a bit overpriced. With all the great dining...experiences we had on our Tuscan holiday, it may be that this reviewer didn’t think our experience at Il Contedino measured up comparatively to our other dining experiences.More

The restaurant is in the town of Monteroni d'arbia which is a short drive from our cottage. We had the steak with truffles which was excellent. The appetizer of quail eggs & truffle was another scorer. Their mains of pasta with wild boar ragu was...good too. Overall, the food is highly commendable. We even returned a second time!More

I can’t say enough about this place. We had the best meal of our two-week vacation filled with great meals. My husband and son enjoyed a dish of several different meats. We watched it being cooked in the big fireplace. They raved about it. I...sampled the side dish of roasted potatoes that were cooked to perfection. I had pasta with goose breast and truffles. Every bite was an experience. And the food was accompanied by nice wines from the region. We ate in the cozy warmth of the fire, too. A most memorable and satisfying dining experience.More

We decided to end our week staying in a nearby villa by having dinner in Il Contedino - and we were so glad we made such a good choice! We were made to feel really welcome, and clearly the team running the restaurant when we...visited wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed their visit. Dishes which we particularly enjoyed included Peppered Mussels (as a starter), and delicious grilled pork.More

This is a casual place, located a short drive from our apartment in Siena. It seemed popular with locals. It’s a large venue with plenty of parking outside. We tried two pasta dishes, including the truffle pici pasta (which was barely more expensive than the...non-truffle items), as well as the octopus and the gratinated seabass. We enjoyed all of the food. Service was decent as well and pricing very reasonable at €70 for our 2 course meal, including a couple of drinks. Overall, no complaints! I'd give them 4.5 stars if I could.More

My husband and I have eaten here on several occasions (mostly lunches). It is a twenty minute car ride south of Siena on the road toward Rome. The service is splendid, the food offers interesting twists on the normal Tuscan dishes and the ambiance welcoming;...we particularly love sitting on the veranda in the spring and near the huge fireplace in the winter. I recommend the quail egg with black truffles, the baked bronzino, the homemade ravioli and anything alla braccia. The desserts are wonderful, all of them. It is pricey but worth it. So, if you find yourself on the Cassia Nord, touring around the gorgeous countryside around Montalcino, give this family-owned place a tryMore

We stopped here by chance, without even looking into Tripadvisor. You could smell the wood grill from outside roasting bistecca florentina (we had one) Great food with a very welcoming staff.
