Dinner started at 7 pm and I returned here to enjoy a meal in mild Italian winter weather. Meals with truffles yum yum! The food and service was good. I would dine here again.More

Nice variety of simple food. Gnocchi was beautiful so soft and melt in the mouth, pasta with cheese and pepper delightful. We went back another night for pizza. Just as good. House wine was nice too as we didn’t know which wine to choose. Staff...are friendly and can speak some English as we don’t speak Italian. Not many places open in January so not many places to try but it was warm and welcoming.More

We went for a family dinner and all chose pizza which I think was a mistake. It says it’s a pizzeria and restaurant but the pizza was really disappointing - very thin but so crisp and hard you could snap it in half. Not great....Staff were friendly though and it was quite busy so something must be good.More

If you visit Pienza, you must have lunch or dinner at the amazing La Mensa del Conte. Friendly family service, brilliant local cuisine, delectable house wine! We had the pici and Chianina steak, both local specialities. This is a family run restaurant that is not...to be missed!More

We had dinner here last week and it was delicious. We wanted a good pizzeria and we found it! The service was friendly and attentive. We sat outside and although it wasn’t a terribly warm evening it still felt cosy. My favourite feature was that...they gave you scissors to cut the pizza - brilliant! I’d definitely recommend this place.More

We stopped here for lunch after a visit to montepulciano,where we had found restaurants too busy.we called here having not made a booking.We had a wonderful reception,and a table quickly laid for 6. We could not fault a single thing.Our waiter was extremely helpful and...service was exemplary.Each course was delicious,as was the wine,and at €10 a litre for house wine which was montepulciano,we just couldn’t believe it. I had the best tiramisu I have ever eaten in the world!! Everyone ate everything,the rosemary roast potatoes were amazing. It would definitely be worth returning to Italy for this restaurant alone.More

Staying in Pienza for one night on a walking holiday and wandered in on a rainy Sunday evening. Warm welcome and excellent food and wine. My husband especially loved the pecorino and bacon antipasti and veal with porcini and I had pici with garlic and...tomato. Would have loved to have had desert but we were too full.More

My husband and I return to Pienza every time we visit Italy, and the first place we go is to La Mensa del Conte, located just outside of the entrance to Pienza. I fell in love with their amazing appetizer of grilled fresh Pecorino Cheese...wrapped in bacon, and that is the first thing I start off with each visit. Their gnocchi is excellent, as well as their Pici pasta with bolognese sauce. Coffee and Tiramisu are great to end the meal with. It is a family run business, with Rita, the mom and owner/chef in the kitchen and Francesca and her sister out front. They are a lovely family and we love seeing them each time we return to Pienza. Don't miss out on a great meal, and be sure to start it with the grilled Romano cheese/bacon appetizer. You won't be disappointed!More
