Benvenuti a Lucignano d' Asso!

Experience with us the delicacies of Tuscany in the highest quality! We are a bistro, bar and grocery shop in the medieval village of Lucignano d'Asso - in the middle of the picturesque landscape of the Crete Senesi about 40 km south of Siena. At an altitude of 350 m, the small village square in front of our Bottega offers a fantastic view of the surrounding villages of Montalcino, Pienza and Cosona, as well as the volcanic mountain Amiata. We serve snacks, aperitifs and our legendary boards of cold meats and cheeses with wonderful wine, raw vegetables and fine olive oil outside under shady trees or inside in a rustic setting.


Food and pleasure

" ....a real delicacy. To fill you up, there are platters of cold meats and cheeses at Bar/Alimentari Giannetti - in the lovely indoor lounge or even outside

                       under the pergola."

In our Bottega you will find many typical products of the region - especially salami and cheese, Tuscan ham, olive oil and wine. In addition to our daily sales, we serve sumptuous platters of affitatti, various types of pecorino, wine, raw vegetables and high quality olive oil inside and out. Once you have sat down in the small village square, quietly sampling these simple delicacies among the rampant flowers, you will soon join the list of our many international guests.

 

" ....an Osteria covered by a giant hibiscus. Outside only a yellow "Alimentari" sign ... inside a coolness that you could put on a sweater......and then, surprisingly, capicollo, finnochiata, prosciutto and all kinds of pecorino - as God has taught us for a hundred years to produce good".

Our story

"Da Rita e Eraldo" has been run by the Giannetti family in the third generation since 1919. We have dedicated the restaurant to our parents and parent-in-law Rita and Eraldo Giannetti, who ran the Bottega together for over 50 years. Through their tireless work, their love for Lucignano, their good products and their guests, they created a wonderful place that we continue to run with heart and respect.
