Description: Montepulciano is a magic city which offers its visitors unforgettable memories. A steep, winding road will lead you to a medieval hill town with a wonderful view over the surrounding valley. L’Osteria del Conte is situated in one of the town centre’s main streets, near the renowned Sanctuary of San Biagio and ontepulciano’s Fortress. After several years of experience in enogastronomy and catering, Lorena together with her son, Paolo, decided to open this cosy little restaurant in Montepulciano, where you will have the possibility of tasting the genuine, delicious dishes offered by the Sienese cuisine.

This was the first meal we had in Tuscany. Minutes after arriving in Montepulciano, we were promptly seated in the busy dining room of this very authentic, family run restaurant. We gulped down a bottle of wine, two incredible pasta dishes with seafood (It was Sunday-- they have fish Friday-Sunday or until they're out of it), and dessert. The bill... More

Went here one night at the recommendation of Alberto at Relais San Bruno where we were staying. Excellent food and wine and appeared to be a nice family owned restaurant. You can't go wrong with this restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner here. The steak we had here was very mediocre. Panna cotta was very good. Service was also good.

This dinning experience was a true pleasure from start to finish! We were greeted by a wonderful waiter who is clearly passionate about food and wine. The service was perfect down to every last detail. The timing for each dish was impeccable! The food was amazing, the menu, the presentation and most importantly the flavour! I highly recommend the Ravioli... More

We had lunch at Osteria del Conte and experienced good home style Italian cooking. The food was tasty with plenty of choices for our group. The set price menu was excellent value. Best dish of the day, Ribbolata soup!

We stumbled upon this place when we first arrived in town. The pici with tomato and garlic sauce was simply divine. My husband ordered the tagliatelle with boar which I happily munched on as well. We ended up going there for dinner. And we actually turned back around a day later and stayed a night in Montepulciano so we could... More

Perhaps we went on a bad night, but I really couldn't give this place the 5 star rating others have awarded it. The food was okay, I'm vegetarian and I know that makes things tricky, but there were very few options for me. The whole meal felt rather rushed; something we're not used to in Italy, and we certainly weren't... More

Osteria del Conte was undoubtedly our favorite of a number of wonderful restaurants we enjoyed in our 3 1/2 weeks touring Italy. It's a small, down-to-earth place that serves freshly made dishes that are so outstanding that we went back for another dinner two nights later. I ordered the caprese salad and it filled a large dinner plate with the... More

Mmmm! Just thinking about the fabulous hand-made pasta with black truffles and succulent, tender beef makes me want to be back there again. Absolutely the best meal of our Italian vacation-- including some that cost twice as much as this lovely little Montepulciano restaurant.
