A dinner on the first floor terrace, during a beautiful evening of July, is the must! Paola, the owner of La Locanda di Torquato has realized her dream, a beautiful, charming, simple, elegant and high quality restaurant. The environment is elegant and friendly at the same time. The food, tuscan, 'maremmano' with an original taste!! I suggest 'tagliata' served with amazing sauces, the best a concentrated of Morellino, the typical wine of Scansano area, where is Montorgiali. The restaurant is in the stoic center of this little middle-age village, in the hearth of Maremma. Discover it! Go there and it will be a unique experience!

Due to its high rating for this area, we decided to treat ourselves on our last night. Is located in a very small village, is strongly advised to reserve, especially the terrace tables (with beautiful landscape of the hills, nice to dinner during sunset), small restaurant with around 15 tables (it was fully booked when we went there). Cutely decorated with simple items like candles, old irons and brooms; toilet room was too perfumed and a basket complete of perfumes, perfumed powders, hand creams, disinfectant etc. was available for guests… nice touch, it was quite a long time that I don’t visit a toilet room with toiletries for free use for the public…

That night, we chose tortellini with burrata (type of “buttered” cheese), spinach and pistachio (too much the taste of nutmeg!); papardelles with cinta senese (local pig) sauce; braised piglet with Scansano wine; fried dried cod; lemon mousse with sweetened fruit, yogurt mousse with chopped nuts… fixed price for a starter, main, dessert and drinks, no written menu, orally announced by who welcomes… Interesting, tasty and beautifully presented dishes.

We were received by (presumably) manager and she said that they propose traditional dishes with variations; no popular antipasti like sliced dried meats are served and snacks will not be offered as they are time wasting, we agreed BUT when you see that is offered to other tables with the exception of yours including those who arrived later, is not nice seeing that… we didn’t ask for it (because we don’t like to seem “begging”) but after the pasta dishes, the courtesy snack arrived with many apologies from the waitress (switched as the “owner” went to receive other guests)… after finishing the snack (which was appetizing) the waitress kept apologizing the gap…

Apart of this episode (intentional or not or just forgetful!), this is a nice eatery, hidden, away the crowds, with quite good (sometimes a bit less!) food with experimental addings.

As soon as you get in the warm and charming atmosphere makes you feel like you're at home and the staff like you're their friend.
It's a little peculiar. There's no menu, the owner of the restaurant will approach to your table and tell you the options for the appetizer, first and second dish, then desert (So you just need to trust your wallet). The options are not your typical "caccio and peppe" or "arrabiata".
The service was fast and the food incredible. The portions are big enough to take you trough the first, second and dessert. Everything served beautifully and perfectly sasoned.
While the food was amazing it doesn't change the fact that hearing the menu options is not the best way to decide for a meal, and the owner seemed kind of upset when needed to re hear it.

Great food and very friendly service. We shared three different pastas as starters and three different dishes as main courses. We highly recommend this authentic italian restaurant in the idyllic small town of Montorgiali.

We got this lovely recommendation from a wine producer on our trip in Tuscany. What a recommendation! Absolutely worth travel a long way for. Paula, the owner welcome us with open arms and gave us a very nice room at this Bed&Breakfast. The best we have tried ever. The best of all was that they have one of the best restaurant in the area. We got a table on the terrace with view over the valley . Paula sat down and welcomed us.
With warm lovely felling she explain what dishes they had for the evening. Every dish is hand made. So exciting and romantic. The wines of the house is also very good. Highest point and we recommend this pearl with love.
