La Porta

Via del Piano,1 Monticchiello

(39) 0578-755-163

Inside a ridiculously picturesque walled village close to the Renaissance town of Pienza, La Porta has become a must-stop for both visiting foodies and well-heeled locals. They come for one of the region’s best tagliolini al tartufo (a perfectly creamy truffle pasta) and for the multilingual owner Daria, whose selection of local Brunello, from Montalcino, and Vino Nobile from Montepulciano, is priced at a fraction of what you would pay back home. Book ahead to snag a table on the terrace overlooking the UNESCO-protected Val d’Orcia.
