This is a farm-to-table restaurant we enjoyed while getting lost in the dirt roads near Montepulciano. The meat, vegetables, cheese and wine are local from the very farm that includes the restaurant. The dishes were creative and inspired by the local tradition. The wine (both...More

We enjoyed the tour and the cheese tasting afterwards. We learned a lot about pecorino cheese. When we signed up we didn’t know the price and we’re a little surprised that it cost €25 per person.

This farm has a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside and is owned by very interesting family who decided, 20 years ago, to buy a farm in Pienza with absolutely no farming experience! The result is an amazing thing to see: goats, sheep, (we saw...More

The farm is located about 20 minutes from Pienza. It is a working farm. The owner provides a very informative tour for about 30 minutes. We then had a wonderful fresh farm to table lunch with cheeses and charcuterie made on the farm. Great experience!

I went to Podere Il Casale for lunch and stayed there for 3 hours - the host Micha was very welcoming, showed me around the farm and told me of its history. Incredible people, incredible food, incredible view - a must-visit in Tuscany!
