Lovely outdoor dining with a view

This restaurant has a lovely outdoor terrace and a very friendly waitstaff.

We started with a complimentary plate of meatballs with black olives and great bread. After sharing an order of bruschetta, I had the picci with wild boar sauce. It was delicious with just the right amount of spiciness. My husband had a spinach tortellini stuffed with pecorino in a butter and sage sauce.

The pasta was followed by a potato and onion souffle and an order of Chianina beef in wine and mushroom sauce. I had a glass of the house red and my husband had a coke. No room for dessert! Both the food and the service were great. Dinner for two was 39 euro.

Nice spot for a resonably-priced meal in Bagno Vignoni

The small hamlet of Bagno Vignoni has all of three trattorias. We chose this one because it was the most inexpensive and we were looking for just a light lunch. We ate in the lovely small shaded garden on this hot summer's day. We shared a proscuitto e melone, followed by two homeade pastas; I had a chittara with duck ragu and my husband had spinach tortelloni with walnut cream sauce. Both were delicious. Service was very friendly. With two glasses of house vino bianco and a bottle of aqua minerale, the bill for two came to 29.

Pleasant restaurant in the center of Bagno Vignoni with an outdoor terrace. Good reasonably-priced Tuscan food.

We ate at La Parata twice in late June 2005 during our month in Tuscany, both times while spending the day at the nearby thermal pool at the Hotel Posta-Marucci. The pools close from 1-2:30, and this is a good place to take a break for lunch. The restaurant is just a few minutes walk from the hotel, right in the center of the unique village of Bagno Vignoni.

There's a very pleasant shaded outdoor terrace and a good menu with reasonably priced food. On both visits our waitress was a friendly American student from Colorado, working there to improve her Italian before starting at the university in Lugano, Switzerland in the fall.

On our first visit my husband and daughter just had antipasti and dessert since they had snacked at the pool. I had melon and prosciutto, then homemade ravioli, then cheesecake for dessert. We had a carafe of the house wine. Our bill for that visit was 34.

On our second visit a few days later we all had lunch. I had the melon and ham again followed by a different ravioli dish (butter and sage- wonderful!!). Charley had a salad with grilled chicken, and Kelly had pasta arrabiata. We liked that they were flexible to work with our daughter's special request. We shared two desserts and had wine. Our bill for this visit was 40.
