I was here with my girlfriend at lunch time, during a week-end in Val di Chiana. For sure the best restaurant we visited and the best location as well. In fact, just entered, you will find at ground floor a big counter whereby you can taste great part of the Tuscan gastronomy with tables surrounded by huge barrels filled with... More

A short 1/4 mile from Centro in Montepulciano is the La Corte Medicea. It is a 'must' place to eat. First the restaurant has free tastings of honey, jams, salami. The interior has huge vino barrels and the house wine (which can be purchased in bulk) is Vino Nobile Montepulciano. It is the best house wine I have had in... More

Cooking class with Niccolo was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Montepulciano. His knowledge, skill and obvious passion for great food enabled him to engage both my wife's and my widely different culinary abilities. (All right, I'll be honest - I chopped the gnocchi and took pictures - but I had a great time and learned a... More

The day before our wedding I skipped out on the cooking class to welcome traveling guests. My mother in law and husband to be attended and came back with the biggest smiles I had ever seen. Niccolo not only enthralled them with his culinary skills and knowledge of the town, but he also drove them back to the hotel as... More

The food was fabulous - fresh truffle pasta (anything but stingy on the truffle), deliciously tender meat stewed in vino Nobile, and to die for chocolate fondant desert. Eat your heart out looking upon massive wine vats in a cellar housed within rustic ancient walls. So lovely to be in an authentic spot when tourist traps litter the Tuscan countryside.... More

We had many good meals in our six nights in Montepulciano, and this was one of the best. The food was excellent and the staff made us feel welcome. We had dinner here twice because we enjoyed it so much.

We went to the cooking course and Nicolai was brilliant, there was only two of us on the course so we had a really good lesson. He taught us how to make pici, ravioli and gnocci and some of the best sauces i've ever tasted! He even took €5 each off the price of the cooking course because we gave... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant last October. We chose the Tasting menu which included four courses, each matched with a wine. The price was only 38 euros per person, which was reasonable, given four courses with wine. The waitress was so knowledgeable. It was so good we went back the following night and, although the tasting menu... More
