Great restaurant, able to eat outside and enjoy the fantastic view

We were a large party, and we were glad we made reservations. The food was excellent, and we were able to eat outside--the view is just great. Everyone enjoyed their meal, very tasty! This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel.

We were staying in Montepulciano and this restaurant was recommended to us by our host. It was just perfect, had a family run atmosphere and excellent food. What more do you need to know? Try it and you will love it.

We landed here for dinner on our first night in Montepulciano and enjoyed the entire experience. After a great meal, we leisurely sipped our wine while watching our kids play in the Piazza Grande as night fell. Amazing! The service was friendly and attentive and the food was delicious and satisfying. Highly recommend the lemon gelato. We returned a day... More

Friendly service. Advertises veggies from their own garden. Delightful food that was scrumptious. Located right next to the main plaza. Outdoor seating right on the plaza.

Asked for a rare steak ... received overcooked shoe leather. True to our Canadian upbringing, in an attempt to make the best of it and not create a scene, we choked back what we could. We did eventually tell the waiter, who told us that we wouldn't be charged for it. Apparently, the waiter got trumped as the bill featured... More
