We had a wonderful lunch at La Chiocciola trattoria while visiting Pienza. We started with the mixed bruschetta, a sampling of bruschette and crostini typical of the region. We followed with several pastas--tagliatelle with lepre (hare), cinghiale (wild boar), and tartufo (truffle)--and a pici cacio e pepe (hand-rolled pasta with cheese and pepper). They were all delicious and satisfying, and left us too full for a secondo or dolce. Unlike other reviewers, we found the pici cacio e pepe to be the best of the four, one of the best we've ever had. The lepre was also very flavorful. The service was attentive but not rushed, and the setting is very attractive. There is a shady patio as well as an indoor dining room.
