A sign outside the restaurant boasting about their tripadvisor reviews lead us in the door. We were asked to return in 10 minutes as the lunch crowd was just leaving. When we were seated our order was taken quickly, but we waited a long time for our food, and the couple behind us got their food after us and they... More

It was a nice place, really good service, food was average for Italy. They had free wi-fi, good wine. It is known for their sunsets, but it was too cold to sit outside when we went and we forgot to go outside to catch it. But I would recommend it, it was right in the center of town and near... More

We stayed in montepulciano and had good experiences at multiple restaurants. All were good except this one. Food was okay but service was terrible. They seemed to be very attentive to Italian tables but our waitress left and was not seen again. After almost 1 hour and several requests to other waiters we hunted down our check without ordering next... More

Dear Amyg77, after 200 positive reviews I read your review and it makes me very sad;I apologize if the service(which is considered the most attentive and efficient in Montepulciano according to most reviews)did not satisfy your expectations.BUT,I consider your review a little bit over the line because according to what you say,we discriminate american guests;so,considering that american guests are a...

Looking for a restaurant with a reasonable number of vegetarian choices on a cold, windy evening when we didn't want to walk a long distance. Made a rez by stopping in a couple of hours before dinner and was shown to a particularly nice table because of the rez. Service competent, food quite good. Definitely got the "best risotto of...

The food is amazing and so is the atmosphere. Got lucky to get it on Easter and had a traditional Easter spinach pie of some sort of which was given for free for the visitors. Also had a nice Etruscan rabbit meal and it was superb. The sauce was excellent and the dish was of a "kind size". Very nice... More

I ate dinner here on a recent trip to Montepulciano. It was AMAZING!! I couldn't believe how amazing the food was and it made me wish I'd eaten here the night before instead of the other restaurant I ate at. Great location as well. I definitely recommend.

Great place for either lunch or dinner. Seemed like plenty of locals eating there, which is often a good indication that it is good. We had the vegetable soup which was outstanding. Service was very attentive.

Had the Tagliatelle with Cinta Senese’s Ragù, it was delicious. Service was good and fast. We didn't have a lot of time to spend there as we were travelling between towns. They were able to get us the check quickly, which was appreciated as this seems to be a very difficult thing to do in Italy. Definitely worth a visit.
