Fodor's Review

Dania and Umberto Lucherini bought this old farmhouse in 1974 and turned it into a significant restaurant ($$$$) with emphasis on Tuscan classics. An impeccable staff serves exquisitely prepared food, such as the pappardelle Dania (wide noodles tossed with tomatoes, garlic, and two cheeses). The menu changes according to the seasons; the well-culled (and expensive) wine list complements the selections. "We had an outrageously good dinner," writes a user of

Guest rooms live up to the high standards created in the kitchen, as the terra-cotta floors, crisp fabrics, and immense bathrooms (most with Jacuzzis) further a sense of luxurious well-being.

A Gem

We stayed at this wonderful, small hotel several years ago and remember it being absolutely wonderful. And we had an outrageously good dinner. Fast forward to 2007... we were staying close by in Tuscany and stopped at La Chiusa for a late lunch... being tired and hungry; all the towns had closed for the afternoon. We told the owner that we had stayed here years ago and that we were hungry and he said, "sit", which we did and had the best lunch

experience of our 4 week trip. Truly gracious hosts, the true heart of Italy was displayed. Fantastic!

A wonderful time!

We had a wonderful room with a jacuzzi and fireplace in the bathroom. The views were amazing. The dinner was great -- make sure to get the lamb! We talked about staying here again. We ate in a breakfast in a charming room with views of the countryside, but if we ate outside by the parking lot it would have been nice also. The staff was unbelievable!!!! My boyfriend lost his pastport and the staff handled everything, so we ended up in Florence with

everything we need. The man that was working with us even came in on his day off to help my BF get pictures and a police report. Best service I have ever had.

Excellent Tuscan Hotel

La Chiusa was fantastic. We stayen in a lovely suite with its own terrace. The views were of the hill town of Montepulciano across the valley. The staff (especially the owners) were fantastic, with ready recommendations for sight seeing and visits in nearby Tuscan towns. The restaurant at the Hotel is probably one of the best meals that I have ever had. If you are planning to do any tour of Tuscany I would highly recommend La Chuisa
