Wine with a view

Always great service with a friendly staff. I was there for the Jazz performance in the evening one night which was great. There's a great view of the valley from the patio, so you should go here for wine in the evening to watch the sunset.

This classy wine bar is highly recommended. Situated on the top of the hill with a scenic view from the outdoor terrace. We were a family of five persons having great pasta and salad. Not expensive. Helpful and welcoming service and a nice, cozy atmosphere.

We first found this wine/jazz bar three years ago when staying at the attached B+B (Locanda San Francesco), and we return to visit every time we're back in Tuscany. There is a great outdoor patio with a view, and comfy seating inside. Jazz is always playing in the background, and there are occasional live jazz performances. The walls are filled... More

Apart from being one of the coolest bars in Tuscany this place delivers on every front. The sunset view is amazing for pre-dinner drinks. Inside has great comfy seating to while away the afternoon/evening. The menu is simple but very well executed. It's the sort of place you go for a drink and get so comfy and relaxed you stay...

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
