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.

Very nice waiters. The food was good, typical from the area. even the desserts were really good. Comparing to other restaurants in the area, definitely a good price cause this city is a bit expensive for what it is.

The restaurant is located close to the Piazza Grande and will attract many tourists. However, also the locals will be having their lunch/dinner over there, which is, certainly in Italy, always a good sign. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. In addition, they speak English fluently. Food quality is excellent. I had one of the best pasta dishes in my... More

We had a lovely casual meal here. Excellent simple pasta. Beautiful Tagliata. Very good service too. We highly recommend this little gem. Just make sure you book because it does seem to get very busy. Easy parking nearby too.

We shared a plate of delicious pecorino cheese washed down with good house wine, huddled underneath the umbrella outside as inside was full - a good sign. Many thanks to the lovely Irish lady who helped make our visit such a good one!

Very nice atmosphere and experience. Very friendly and welcoming service. Also playing and having fun with the kids. Food was excellent. Delicate starters with Tuscany ham and cheese and a tasteful Bistecco Fiorentina.
