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.

We have dined here many times during our visits to Montepulciano. The food is very good with a regular menu and nightly specials. The waitresses are attentive and both speak English, one with an Irish lilt. Make reservations while you are touring the Fortezza or Piazza Grande and then return in the evening for a very pleasant meal. The wine... More

We ate here twice this past summer and were very disappointed they were closed while we were in MonteP last week. We can't wait to dine here again. The restaurant has a quaint outdoor eating area and the inside is just as quaint. The food and service were wonderful. They only do fresh seafood on the weekends and the dishes... More

We made the mistake of not making a reservation on a Saturday night, but luckily they were able to fit us in at 7:30pm when they open! My husband and I shared the "antipasta toscana" and it was amazing! As our main course, we each got steak (cooked different ways). They were equally delicious! We savored every bite. I found...

We limped in here for a very late lunch after our first choice restaurant was too full. Service was a little slow but the food was good (tagliatelle ragu and stuffed calamari). Warm and cosy place on a cold day.

We walked by early on an evening of pea-soup fog. As we were perusing the menu, the woman of the restaurant came out and invited us in. She was so cute and enthusiastic we could not resist! It has a small dining room and we were lucky to get a seat even in the off season. The service was extremely... More

Osteria del Conte is definitely one the best restaurants in Montepulciano. All the dishes we had were excellent. Standouts were the Tagliatelle with Wild Boar, Ravioli with butter and sage and Grilled lamb chops and Torta Della Nonna. Great wine list. Make reservations or you most likely will not get a table. Service and atmosphere were terrific.

Their food is very good, their wine selection is adequate, and the service is very friendly. It is small, so get there early since restaurants in Montepulciano are not open late.

One of our most memorable meals while in Italy. Ravioli was homemade and exceptional. The service was good and fun and friendly. Suggestion; make a reservation. The word is out that this is a wonderful restaurant and reasonably priced.
