Great location, great food and a very kind waitress! We had diner yesterday evening and we will go back tomorrow to try other things of the menu.

My family and I have had many visits to this wonderful restaurant. It's hidden away in a cloister in a very old part of Sarteano. The food is a cut above much trattoria-style fare that seems pervasive across many Italian restaurants. Always imaginative food but...at very reasonable prices. The wine list had many local Orcia wines as well as Vino Nobile and Brunello but all at very acessible prices. If you are in the area, please do not miss this charming and lively find.More

The Chiostro or Cloister has the advantage of a wonderful location, the restaurant is situated upstairs in the loggia and the food is both interesting and very well presented. Recently the owners have added a wonderful bar in the old cantina where you can sit...on swings to enjoy your cocktail. During the summer months they also organize musical evenings, an added incentive and always interestingMore

Would I recommend a place that charges 3 euros cover charge for babies? In all the restaurants we have visited with children this holiday we have been greeted openly, no problem to provide half portions & baby changing facilities. If you have children this is...not the place to go, ladies toilet out of order!! This establishment stands out for it inflexible attitude to children. Food average, attitude of staff barely tolerant of customers.More

The restaurant (and the bar) is located in a superb ancient building. The food is typically tuscanian. Crew is kind and toughfull. Booking mandatory during summer time.

I have eaten here a couple of times this summer. The food and service have been good. Also enjoyed the live music and cocktails on a Wednesday. Interesting and comfortable venue.

We arrived on a live evening night, which we were not aware of. Were made to feel very welcome with 3 children, enjoyed a drink in the courtyard and then went upstairs into the restaurant. Great food selection and local wines good. The Fiorentina T...Bone was absolutely sublime. Well recommended...More
