Thanks Colleen - I already want to go back to La Bandita! ;-)

So you went over to the dark side. I so totally agree with this exquisite comparison of our beloved Umbria with overly hyped Tuscany. But we can learn something without giving up authenticity! I take guests on my Tuscany tours (as well as all over Umbria) and we always go to Pienza for its particular history and the gorgeous setting. Met the owners of La Bandita this past March (before they opened)and must say their spring pea soup and Chianina beef burger with mint mayo rocked with everything locally sourced. Glad that you found them. Very happy that we have a relaxed and non-touristy place to eat now in Pienza!
