We kept going back for more.

We loved this restaurant. So much so that after eating there several times we had to tell ourselves to try something else. The service, the ambiance and the authentic Italian selections kept us fat and happy during our week in Montepulciano.

Very convenient for our hotel Albergo Duomo. Friendly and attentive service and good value food in a cosy dining room . To be honest after a visit to the Nobile festival and the "snack" lunch we had there, we weren't terribly hungry to do justice to a full dinner in the evening - but the antipasti and primi we had...

On a chilly Sunday, during the off season, this was just the perfect place for a meal. The food was fantastic-typical Tuscan fare, home cooked and full of flavor. It was indeed comfort food! We recommend it highly and would certainly return again.

Typical tuscan fare...good, not spectacular. Antipasto del conte is nice...prosciutto, cheese, marinated vegetables. The problem is that between each course too much time goes by....we ordered a dessert course and it took forever. It is nice to enjoy your meal slowly but this was excessive...may have been due to a busy Saturday night.

Walking the deserted streets of Montepulciano from our hotel on a cold November night, we wondered if we were mistaken about this restaurant being open. We opened the door and a found it to be almost completely filled with families and a smattering of tourists enjoying their evening meal. What a surprise. The ravioli was probably the best of our...

This small but cute restaurant offers very good food and high quality. Price are acceptable! Maybe portion are not too big but fair enough and appropriate.

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
