One of our best meals in Tuscany! We sat at a table on the patio overlooking the valley at sunset - the view was matched by the amazing food and wonderful service. Highly recommend reservations.

La Porta was a gem of a find. Great meal. Exceptional location. Montechiello is a nice town and isn't really in the tour books.
