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.

We visited for drinks and to enjoy the sunset & views of the valley on our last night in town. The wine bar is cosy and has a lovely atmosphere. In warmer months its probably nice to sit on the outside terrace from where you could enjoy the sunset view. It was a bit too cold when we were there... More

And he is working at this restaurant with his wife. We arrived to the sound of crates of bottles falling over and the loud shouts of disaster in Italian. Then the rain came and all the tables were reserved for one party. We sat outside and then moved in as the rain got heavier, snagging the last table close to... More

Best Italian food I have had in Italy. Ravioli and tartar are great. Staff are super friendly. View is awesome. Ambiemce is significant. The whole area is a great place to visit and this restaurant in particular is amazing.

E Lucevan le Stelle is a quiet gem tucked away in a corner of Montepulciano. The restaurant/bar sits on one edge of the city and offers panoramic views of the valley below from the outdoor patio. It can be a bit breezy on the patio but at certain times of the year the breeze offers some welcome relief from the... More

This bar/caffe sits back a bit in Piazza San Francisco, and is a favourite place to take an aperitivo and watch the sun set over the valley far below, which we did on several occasions. As is the practice in Italy, if you order a drink you generally get a small plate of chips, nuts, olives and the like. This... More
