Reviewed by: GailS from MA, review #4060

When: 2013

Again, one of the best overall eating experiences of a multi-week trip.

Directions: Not far from the Banfi estate, on the white road that leads from Banfi to Tavernelle.

We visit Montalcino once a year and always make sure we visit La Pieve for at least one meal. It is a fantastic experience - both in terms of the quality of the food as well as the service and lovely outdoor covered terrace (if the weather is good). They apparently have a fixed price buffet at times but every time we've been there (usually for lunch) there's no buffet but a regular menu. Portion sizes are smaller so you can experience several courses easily. They've always given us a complimentary pre-appetizer before the appetizer we ordered. They also have an excellent wine selection.
