Description
Il ristorante La Terrazza del Chiostro in Pienza è situato all'interno dell'Hotel Relais Chiostro di Pienza, ricavato da un ex convento risalente al XV° secolo. A soli 100 metri dalla cattedrale di Pienza. Il giardino di questo antico monastero, rappresenta ora un'ampia terrazza con affaccio affaccia sulla Val d'Orcia dove, durante la bella stagione, si servono i pranzi e le cene. La sala interna del ristorante è ricavata invece dall'antico refettorio Francescano restaurato di recente. I colonnati del Chiostro, offrono la possibilità di organizzare eventi nuziali o aziendali.
