One of those places where tourists don't seem especially welcome. Service was patchy, food was average and the surroundings so-so. We had hiked from Montalcino to see the abbey and really needed to eat before we returned on the bus. Maybe we'd have been better...More

I stayed here in a room with a window looking out over the Abbey of Sant'Antimo. The food was abundant and delicious.

I can't even describe into words how awful this place was!!! I will start by saying how rude the woman was who waited on us, from the pictures on the wall she was the owner. Now I don't care if you are rude, however, your...More

I enjoyed my food at the Osteria Bassomondo. The service was good as was the food. The location in the square is good for people watching and soaking up the atomsphere.

I read about experiences from others, checked whether this was indeed the same place where we had a bad experiance and, yes, it was. Horrible place, dirty, bad food, bad service, ughh. Prices standard but anywhere you get much better food and all the rest...More

Don't go to this place. From the road, it looks like the ideal, non-tourist typical italian osteria. This changes completely when you receive the food (average cuisine, no fresh ingredients) and even more when you receive the bill. They charge both for coperti and "service"...More
