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.

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
