The place is hidden in a small piazza and has a great atmosphere, with sofas and tables. You can watch the sunset from nearly any table. My wife and I had great pastas and wine at very good prices. The only caveat is that the meals took a bit longer to arrive and the olive oil for the breads we... More

E Lucevan le Stelle is not just a wine bar... it is an experience! Luca and the staff make it an amazingly cozy place, and they serve with a smile always. Thank you for making Montepulciano special for us!

Luca is a great bartender and host. He was very accommodating and helpful. We would start or end our night there, as we were staying across the road. Great selection of wine. A must place to visit when in town.

This place has been open a few years now and is just what Montepulciano needed. A classy wine bar serving great pasta and local cured meats and cheeses. The view is quite simply stunning. Not expensive €4 for a glass of really decent vino. Wholly recommended

With a view over the valley and set in a tiny square, E Lucevan ( the barmen didn't know why it was called after Cavadossi's final aria) is perfect place to sample some of their amazing range of fine wines, many by the glass. They also have a short menu of light dishes, ranging from piadini (a nice change from... More

Lovely setting, great staff. Sat and had a bottle of wine, glasses chilled, wine chiller provided, cork left, nice platter provided. Can't ask for more. We are not in the business of taking wine home, but we watched the peeps here give advice on wine and on the basis of what we observed, if I wanted to invest in some... More

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!

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!
