San Quirico or Pienza

We are going to visit Montalcino- and Montepulciano area and which of San Quirico and Pienza is to choose as a place to stay in hotel and to eat at nice restaurants. Which town is most welcoming with not too many tourists and nice streets and buildings?

That's a hard question because both are very charming and have lots of options for eating out. I think between the two, I'd choose San Quirico because it is "a little" less touristy than Pienza, although both are quieter in the evenings in general.
