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 food better be great! Not even close!! We did not have a choice for lunch... More

A simple and inexpensive family-run restaurant, with a good variety of dishes. Inexpensive and good service. Worth a visit in combination with a trip to the Abbey.

We made the mistake of eating here after touring the nearby Abby. We just wanted a light lunch of a bowl of soup or a small plate and a bottle of wine. After we were seated we were told that only a few of the items on the menu were available and they were all heavy dishes. We tried to... 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.

Small but mighty - if you're heading to see the Abbey San Antimo stop here on the way for regular and delicious Tuscan home cooking.

It was almost a joke how rude the service was. We thought perhaps it was due to our limited Italian but still we tried to remain polite. The cook would only cook something off the menu if we ordered two of the same dishes. The food was okay but did not make up for the lack of service and poor... More

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 than here. Don't go there!

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" (which you don't get at all). Worst lunch experience of my life

My wife and I ate here after visiting Abbazia Sant' Antimo and had a late lunch. There were touring motorcycle riders eating at most of the tables outside so we elected to eat inside. The menu was pretty simple and basic but the antipasta was delicious and plentiful. We both had pasta and both dishes were very good. Our experience... More
