We had a very nice typical Italian experience at Osteria del Conte. We ate here a few years ago and again on our return to Montepulciano. The service was good and a complimentary Prosecco before diner was a nice touch. There was 3 of us, 2 of the dinners were excellent and 1 just ok but not great. We would... More

Recommended by the innkeeper at Il Meuble Ricco, we made reservations for dinner even though it was on a street corner, modest, with no view. It was a great decision. Warm and efficient service, good selection of food and wine. The pasta with mushrooms was mouth watering. One of the best meals in two weeks of Tuscany travels

Recommended to dine here by our Hosts at San Gallo agriturismo. Lunchtime and a glorious day in Montepulciano. We started with a tuna salad, then pasta cini with Tuscan meat sauce and beef fillet with porcini - perfect with a bottle of Nobile from Contucci winery. Just had to squeeze in dessert - pannacotta with caramel sauce and torte with... More

Excellent food and friendly service. Offered a high chair immediately for our toddler. I had the home made Pici pasta with duck and pecorino cheese which was amazing. My husband had the grilled mixed pork which again was very good. Overall a very good lunch and family friendly. Well worth a visit.

We were walking around Montepulciano looking for a cosy and good restaurant when we bumped into this one. It was 7pm and not yet open but the waiters were preparing the tables so we asked if we could have a table at 7.30 and that was OK. So a bit later we returned - the terrace was almost full! Very...

We met some friends in the restaurant and enjoyed the wonderful Tuscan cuisine. Try some of the cheese and the Vino Nobile!

This charming family-run restaurant is located off the town square, on the side of the duomo. The interior resembles a country-side home. The menu is traditional regional Tuscan cuisine. Everything is fresh and well-prepared -- excellent in all aspects. Service is personal. The restaurant comes highly recommended by all. You will not go wrong on this one! Reservations highly recommended.
