I first encountered this lovely restaurant just outside the walls of the pretty, much visited Tuscan hill-top town of Pienza three years ago. There are few disappointments in anything Tuscan, but one problem is that medieval walled towns tend to be inward looking, the walls being designed to keep invaders out, rather than provide picture window views. Naturally, this means... More

Wonderful view, the view is already worth a visit here but the food is also good and service was good. We had the salumi and formaggi and 2 pasta's and both were good. Although this is a typical tourist spot it is nice anyway. Waiters were nice and kind and food was good and reasonable priced.

This little restaurant just outside the walls of Pienza is a little jewel. Had lunch here after biking from Bagno Vignoni and really enjoyed the great terrace, top view and great food.

Good value for money. Excellent value for money house red. Gnocchi with asparagus and ham was perfect for lunch. The views are to die for. Quite chilled music and not too busy.

We were stuck for somewhere to eat in the early evening and stumbled upon this restaurant whilst watching the sunset. Good food - particularly the gnocchi with butter and sage and the sliced steak - and the most welcoming and friendly staff.

We went for lunch based on reviews on here, the first time we were too late at just after 2pm but we came back a second time as we really wanted to enjoy the awesome views. Service was good and the food was simple and delicious but what a fabulous location

We thought the food was just average, but the views were outstanding. The service was not good, and the servers themselves were a bit odd. Not sure how good this was for kids since the Germans next to us kept looking at our children disapprovingly, but that's not the restaurants' fault.

It was nice to finally get out of Rome and have some really good Italian food. Like some others have noted, the views are probably the best thing about Terrazza Val D'Orcia, absolutely gorgeous. Service was a little slow, but overall, this was a solid meal and one of our top five meals of a week in Italy.

Five stars. Visited twice last week for dinner during a stay in Pienza. The view of the Val D'Orcia from the terrace dining area is breathtaking, especially at sunset. The food is outstanding. The meatballs, wild boar and sliced filet steak were delicious. The service was also excellent. Oh, did I mention the tiramisu???
