Very good country restaurant with great view, near Sant'Antimo Abbey

This was a very good country restaurant with great views from the windows. We ate here in early March, and it was a bit chilly. I canít remember now, but they might have outdoor seating as well. This is very close to SantíAntimo, and we enjoyed lunch there before touring the abbey. We were doing a tour with Luca from Hills and Roads Tours, so he had made the recommendation and reservation for us at Il Pozzo.

We ordered antipasti misti for 4 people, which included wonderful meats, cheeses, roasted vegetables, olives. There were 6 of us, and this was more than enough antipasti. Luca and I seemed to devour the most out of the group, but even we couldnít finish it. Then we all ordered pasta. Luca and I both ordered the Pinci Ragu, which was very similar to Pici Ragu, which is like a very fat spaghetti with wild boar meat sauce. I always love this stuff! However, my sister and my niece ordered the homemade tortellini, one with ragu and one with butter and sage, and these were amazing!! Especially the tortellini with butter and sage sauce... wow! My mother and other sister ordered the taglietelli with ragu, which I didnít try since I was already enjoying the ragu. We all drank the house red and bottled water. The meal was around 80 euros for 5 persons.

Overall, good service, very good food, good wine, great view, with a convenient location for touring the Abbey.

A real treat for lunch.

Directions: In the center of town, which is quite small.

Excellent lunch with a nice platter of antipasti with various cheese, cured meats, various crostini, and olives. Primi: Stuffed ravioli (spinach and ricotta cheese) with ragu. Reenie had the wild boar dish, while I had the beef in Brunello wine sauce with a side dish of julienne zucchini topped with parmesan cheese. Red wine. This lunch was a treat from Antonio, who is the owner of Piccolo Hotel Oliveta in Siena. Prices were quite reasonable. I would guess the equivalent of US$50 for two.
