The best value in 2017 is at Ristorante La Terrazza Chiusure (on Facebook) same as Osteria Pizzeria Delle Piazze (on Tripadvisor), serving classic home cooked meals on the north side of the village in Chiusure, with big portions of inexpensive tasty food. Bring everyone with you, this is a great place for kids, too! 4 people can eat for 50 euros total, and the pizza is superb. I always ‘splurge’ and order the Antipasto Goloso and the Pizza Pazza. The mixed grill of pork is also good, as are the pastas for those who are already tired of pizza. The charming ladies, Giovanna and Adriana, will look after you! (I live in this village). I want to give you a tip, hold onto your fork and knife, you don’t get new ones for every dish at these prices! Order wine by the half liter or the full liter carafe and try the new artisan beers …. pizza is still best with a beer.
The covered terrace has panoramic views over Siena Province and you see the huge Monte Oliveto Abbey illuminated down the valley in the evenings. During the summer you need to call (+39) 0577 707103 for reservations on the splendid terrace. Plenty of easy parking along the road. Via delle Piazze, 3, Chiusure , 53041 Asciano SI ($)*
