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.

This is what makes travel so magical. An excellent dinner from a stunning location with an unbeatable sunset view. The service was gracious and the food and wine were top notch. If you're in Montepulciano, be sure to stop here for at least one meal.

Italy has to be known for its restaurants with great views and this is another one, and superb pasta and a great bottle of wine. It doesn't get much better and this place has it all. A fabulous city to visit and dine. the excellence award is very deserving.

Duck ragu and pici! What could be finer? Having lunch with Francesco serving us and dining with the local master coppersmith, Cesare Mazzetti of Ramaio! Both are a must do in Montepuliciano!

We stopped here for lunch and were lucky as they had some white truffle specials. The tagliatelli with white truffles was excellent as was the rabbit main. The staff were nice, athough I asked for a dry white wine and got a sweeter one, but this was the only hick-up in an otherwise very nice lunch.

Plus they serve Prosecco which is nice change from all the red wine you will be tasting. If you eat Lamb, their's was exceptional. My husband ordered it and it was sublime.

Borgo had a nice variety of dishes, including chicken-- I know in Italy you are supposed to eat pasta but the braised chicken was very good. The others in our group had the pasta and we agreed it was very good.

This was such a great little restaurant. The staff was very friendly and attentive and it was very reasonably priced in our opinion. We began by splitting the vegetable pie (much better than it sounds) and then the delicious mushroom risotto. For dinner I had the breaded lamb chops with apples and my husband had the sausage and beans. Everything... More
