Eating & Drinking

  • Eating & Drinking in Pienza

    Pienza is famous for its homemade cheeses, especially pecorino and ricotta. For cheese-lovers, Pecorino is the taste of Tuscany and is certainly the probably the most admired of local cheeses. Pecorino is known for its particular salty taste and a dry, granular texture, which comes from the lengthy ageing process, during which the cheese is dry-salted numerous times. At best, Pecorino has a sharp, smoky flavour that works so well with wine, bread, pasta sauces, or just as a simple cheese platter. Fans recommend dipping it in local honey. Also see Eating and Drinking in Montepulciano, Montalcino, Val d’Orcia and their satelite villages.

In summer, sit on the panoramic terrace and choose from the well-chosen and well-priced wine list. In autumn, go for the ceps (funghi porcini) and truffles.
