Fodor's Expert Review La Chiocciola

$$ Pienza Italian

Take the few minutes to walk from the old town for typical Pienza fare, including homemade pici with hare or wild-boar sauce. The restaurant's version of formaggio in forno (baked cheese) with assorted accompaniments such as fresh porcini mushrooms is reason enough to venture here. The dining room is framed by a stone vault: the room is informal, with minimal decor. All the better to concentrate on the tasty food.
