Ristorante Pizzeria il Botteghino is an established road-house restaurant and pizzeria in Tuscany on the way from Torrita to Pienza, near the town of Montefollonico. Their good and simple cooking is very popular with the locals and delivery truck drivers.
Why we like il Botteghino
This is one of our favorite Tuscan “truck-stops”. We have lunch and dinner here regularly throughout the summer and the quality of food is constantly superb. Daniele and his family run a great restaurant, and besides, he speaks very good English. Large covered outdoor area with lots of tables on the terrace. Closed on Tuesdays. Last visit August 2018.
The Menu at the Ristorante Pizzeria
For starters, try the marinated anchovy fillets and the warm crostini, they can easily be shared. For the pasta course I often have the surprisingly light and small gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, heavenly! They make a fabulous Spaghetti Carbonara, go for it! This large restaurant is the best place in the area for grilled juicy pork ribs and sausages. They also serve pizza in the evenings and it looked good as the waiter carried a few to another table, but we haven’t tasted it yet.
