Tasty dishes based on the region’s cheeses are the speciality at this simple and inexpensive osteria (tavern) on a quiet, pleasant square in the centre of Pienza. Try versions of pici or the starter of radicchio baked quickly to brown the edges. The local pecorino cheese appears often on the menu–the pecorino grigliata con pancetta (grilled with cured bacon) is divine. Can’t decide? Try the pecorino tasting menu.
