Very Good

Food and service were very good. We ordered steak, pasta, grilled vegetables and salad and all were very well made and presented. Easy to locate as it is in the main square in town.

A restaurant with lots of locals who are repeat customers greeted like old friends by the proprietor is always a good sign in a restaurant, and this one has is in a great location at the corner of the main square, ideal for watching the world go by. The food is also good, though we only stopped for a quick... More

The best things of this restaurant are its location, at a corner or the main piazza of Montepulciano (Piazza Grande), and the fiendly service. The food is average, and it is a bit expensive for the quality of the food (but you are paying for the prime location). We had prosciutto and melon; the ham was fine, but the melon... More

We ate twice at Ai Quattro Venti and it was excellent! The service was great, the wine recommendation was outstanding and the food was the best! It is located right off Piazza Grande, very close to the center of Montepulciano and the atmosphere (in or out) was quite pleasant. When we are in the area again, we will definitely be... More

We had the zucchini pie, sliced beef, lasagne, vegetables, pears with pecorino, and panna cota, and all were delicious. Our daughter thought this was the best panna cota she'd had out of a dozen throughout our Tuscany trip. Highly recommend this lovely ristorante.

The restaurant is in a good location next to the main plaza and has a nice outside seating area. Unfortunately, all of those nice outdoor seats were taken and we had to sit alone in the unpleasantly warm restaurant. The food turned out to be fairly typical, but well done, probably better than average for the city. The prices were... More

It is always difficult to pick a restaurant from scratch when briefly visiting. We were lucky with Ai Quattro Venti. Delightfull tagliata and lasagna as well as parmigiana melanzana. Goodservice too.

Enjoyed sufficiently to eat here twice in one week. Friendly service and good exterior table for people watching. We enjoyed a rabbit salad, white beans, minestrone, and chard, plus a fine glass or two of wine.
