La Taverna del Pecorino

Gastronomic delicacies,the fruit of our beloved land, of the Tuscan tradition of the passion of its inhabitants

  • Pasquetti family

    Gastronomy in Pienza already existed in the post-war period

    The Pasquetti family is originally from Pienza. Here the grandmother Assuntina, already in the late post-war period, had a very small shop where shes old wine by the glass, pecorino, and local salami. Our adventure in the way of gastronomy starts from her, and then continues with her grandchildren Matteo and Valerio Pasquetti, who in 2001opened the Tana del Goloso in Pienza and in 2012 the Taverna del Pecorino also in Pienza.

    The big shot ... in every sense

    My story in the world of gastronomy begins with the pleasure of good food. As my dad often reminds me, as a child I was always in search of “i succhi di frutta al salamino” or “salami fruit juices” ... it makes me laugh, but it is probably this desire to search for new and surprising products and flavors that have led me to here.
