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 van drivers. This is one of our favorite Tuscan “truck-stops”. We recently had dinner there and it was again superb. For starters, try the marinated anchovy fillets and warm crostini, they can easily be shared. For the pasta course I had the surprisingly light and small gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, heavenly! This excellent restaurant is the best place in the area for grilled juicy pork ribs and sausages. They also serve pizza that looked good, but we haven’t tasted it yet. The helpful waiters speak some English. Large covered outdoor dining areas. Closed on Tuesdays. Last visit May 2017. Located along the SP15 at a fork in the road. Address: 25, Loc. Osteria Delle Noci – 53049 Torrita di Siena (SI). 0577-668-031.
