Very friendly staff, great local food and wine, part of the medieval square of Rocca d'Orcia. Beautifull surrounding. It's a walk uphill to get there because parking (there are no parking spots on the square) is not allowed in Rocca d'Orcia unless you have an...More

We were staying in the tiny village of Rocca d'Orcia and by chance found it's got this really excellent restaurant. The hostess speaks good English and guided us through the menu. We had a lovely dinner for a good price.

We (group of 8 hikers) had an incredible meal here prepared by Fredrico. It was creative and consisted of nothing but the freshest local ingredients. Every dish was just a delight and the wine offerings were fantastic too.

We arrived before the restaurant was officially opened but were nevertheless welcomed. The food and service were excellent and we loved it so much we booked a table for dinner in a couple of nights.

Set in a beautiful old and rustic square in the upper side of the medieval village of Rocca di Orcia. Excellent local but somewhat sophisticated food run by a lovely lady with good English.

The restaurant is located in the tiny but beautiful Rocca D'Orcia. The setting is one that every visitor dreams of, a small medieval walled town that appears untouched by modern tourism. Marta is the host/chef/interpreter and is warm, gracious and truly enjoys spending the time...More
