I brought a friend to Montepulciano for her first visit. I wanted to make it a special treat, thus dinner had to be good. After a week in Rome with the same pizza or pasta, this restaurant was phenomenal! We split everything. First course was a wonderful tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms Second was filet steak with rocket and Parmesan and... More

My husband and I had dinner here and it was amazing. We started off with a bottle of house wine and a caprese salad that had fresh mouthwatering tomatoes. The pasta was cooked perfectly and I couldn't stop eating it even when I was full. We enjoyed a chocolate dessert that completed our meal along with some limoncello. The only... More

We had six couples go here our first night in Montepulciano. We LOVED this restaurant. Most of us did the fixed menu and were completely stuffed. The wait staff was fantastic! They were so friendly, patient and helpful with a group of Americans. The food had so much flavor and was piping hot. We go the steak with dinner and... More

Had a late, quiet lunch after touring the other Tuscan hill towns. Even though it was close to closing time (we weren't aware of it at the time we sat down) they welcomed us with such warmth and friendliness. The food was delicious and served with such genuine kindness and enthusiasm. We weren't hurried at all, even though we were... More

This was the first true dining experience after 2 weeks in Italy. Food was good and NICELY presented in CLASSICAL designed dishes!!!. Service was good and homey. Operation was run efficiently with all wait staff attending to their duties. We sat outside and really enjoyed it, even though it was relatively chilly that night. Good value restaurant.

Wonderful place. Casual, but still carefully presented. Great service, food was outstanding. Wife had a mixed salad; very fresh and pici with bolognese. I had melon with prosciutto, fetuccine with truffles and a beef filet. All very good, prepared to perfection. Service was very friendly and welcoming.

Elena from Il Tosca recommended this place as a traditional home cooking, and that's what it is. The owner and honorary chef (aka 'Mama mia') still comes out to inspect the vibe. This place was packed, reservations recommended.
