The guy that works there (who seems the owner too) as well as the lady are as rude as can be.

Walk up the hill and it is on the left on the main thoroughfare to the top of Montepulciano. There is seating inside and are a four tables with bench seats outside. The husband & wife owners appear to have renovated this place recently and were both nice and helpful. Because of that, I would love to stop here again... More

Quaint little bar atop Montepulciano. Wonderful bruscetta and amazing wine. We sat outside and soaked up the Tuscan ambiance. We only stopped for a few hours as part of a tour but I could have stayed all week!
