Food and Service are Outstanding

The Tuscan steak and the chick pea soup were as good as I have eaten in Tuscany. Small restaurant with excellent service. The chef came by our table to make sure everything was perfect. Which it was.

Very nice place to have dinner! Because of the Bravio everything was full on the outside. After 10 min sitting inside a outside table got free and the offered it to us!

This place was delightful. I ate here a couple times during my week-long stay in Montepulciano. The staff here is attentive and gracious, willing to accommodate any requests. It's located in a quieter corner of Montepulciano with "less" foot traffic, but still made for a great outdoor spot to people watch, enjoy multiple glasses of wine, and enjoy wonderful Tuscan...

Just off the main square, big selection of food. Staff are very friendly and even let us come in half an hour earlier than their opening time! The food seems mainly aimed at meat lovers but us two vegetarians found more than enough to choose from. Highlights were the chick pea soup, truffle pasta and local wine. Tiramisu was quite... More

I very highly recommend the truffle pasta. It was my first time actually eating truffles and I plan to go back for lunch or dinner today just for that dish alone. The sea bass was very good as well and worth the little bit of effort necessary to enjoy it (the fish comes out largely intact). The service was terrific... More

We arrived in Montepulciano with the idea to eat a bistecca alla fiorentina. We were lucky with our restaurant selection. In Osteria del Conte prepared a 1,2 kg bistecca, that we shared among two, coocked rare, tender and very tasty.

Happened upon this place by chance on a hot day in Montepulciano, in need of shade, lunch and vino. Didn't disappoint on all 3 fronts. Simple home cooked food, good house wines and lovely outdoor terrace. Pecorino sampler as appetizer was delicious, 4 different cheeses with honey and jelly. Pastas were perfectly cooked and the sauce tasted so fresh. Would... More
