Wine Bar that Keeps Giving

We visit E Lucevan Le Stelle (And the stars are shining brightly ) every time we get to Italy. Sitting on the terrace sipping on a glass of wine is truly one of the best experiences in life! If you visit Montepulciano, don't miss it!

I had dinner here one night on a recent stay in Montepulciano. The food was very good. Very nice wine selection and friendly staff.

Located in a square overlooking wonderful views, this spot is perfect for aperitifs in the late afternoon. Prices are reasonable and the food provided is excellent!

Charming lounge bar where sometimes is possible to listen good jazz music. The decor is amazing and of high quality as well as drinks and food. Placed in a beautiful location such as Montepulciano, just at 10 mt. in front is possible to look on the wonderful landscape of Orcia Valley! Recommended!!!

This was a pleasant surprise. We found the food here to be better than the #1 place in town and the ambiance was FAR better. Live music during dinner, great little tables and great service. We also had lunch there on the patio. Find out when the live music is, and you wont be disappointed

We knew it wasn't one of the nights with live jazz (which they have frequently), but it was still a pleasant place to grab a bite and some wine. The food is reasonably priced, any fine (nothing special, just okay). The tomato sauce, for example, was only minimally seasoned and thus a bit bland. Do NOT order your wine bottle... More

A great setting, whether sitting on the patio or inside, frequented by locals and visitors. Good value for the money, with a wide selection of local wines and homemade food, including snacks or meals. Friendly staff that knowingly greeted us after our first visit! Especially enjoyed the live jazz on Friday evenings during the warm months.

This little restaurant, tucked away behind the church had that Bistro feeling. The relaxed atmosphere complete with couches and a reading section was like a Starbuck on steroids!. The décor alone is worth seeing. The food was delicious and presented in a very innovative way - picture perfect. We could of stayed all afternoon and we would have been welcomed... More

We were so fortunate to have this bistro a few steps away from our inn. It became or "neighborhood local bar" during our stay in Montepulciano. Nice wines, beautiful sunsets, delicious food and snacks and great service. Nice patio area but it was too windy and cool for us to enjoy by the end of the day.

We had an amazing cheese place with famous pecorino from Pienza and caramelized onion jam. The soups and salads were delicious and the outdoor patio is the perfect place to rest around happy hour.
