We stayed near Staggia for a week and visited this restaurant for dinner three times. It's not fancy and in a small shopping area near the co-op. But don't be deceived by appearances, the food is very good. It's clearly a favorite with the locals and very busy - especially after 8:00. And many, many folks coming and going to... More

Based on the written reviews here we decided to give it a go and try this restaurant. A true Tuscany restaraunt, and simply a delight - all courses we had (from the Gnocchi to the T-bone steak) were good. The place was full and locals kept coming and going as well. One of the best meals we had here.

Ok, the place could look better and more posh but this is Italy at its best. Great food and wine (excellent red house wine for 4 € for half a litre) makes this place feel and taste like vacation. Since a long time again five points for a restaurant at TA.

A lovely ristorante of which we enjoyed for three meals. Located in the tiny but busy little town of Staggia Senese within the Castle Staggia wall. The food and service were absolutely wonderful! The pizza is traditional Italian and oh so amazing. Try the margarita pizza, basic but loaded with flavor! I had the best gnocchi dish I have ever... More

My wife and I visited this, as one of the few restaurants in Staggia, after having a tour of the nearby Castle and its art installations ( another review). We have visited Italy and Tuscany a number of times so are no strangers to Italian cuisine. The restaurant was just off of the Main Street, well signposted, and we sat... More

Nice quiet location under an awning outside. Only thing that put us off was the large TV. Seemed to cater for a lot of locals which is a good sign. Food was good quality and excellent value. Not sure if we missed the wine list but the house red was pretty good at €7 a litre. Service was a bit... More

The food at this places is almost faultless. Very large portions on the starters, especially the pastas and the really good thing is the unmistakable freshly made pasta. Will definitely go back. :-)

In this wonderful little town of Staggia Senese we found this place for a lunchbreak while we was waiting for the castle to open. The amazing caste is just 200 metres away. The pastadishes tasted lovely, but dont leave before u have tasted the homemade tiramisu. Its the best ever. TRY IT!

Il Pozzo dei desideri is a restaurant in this little town of Staggia Senese, a fraction of Poggibonsi in Tuscany. It's more or less an hour drive from Florence, best stop for lunch when you go visit Monteriggioni and Siena since its along the way. The restaurant has the best starters ever!
