Great food, service by the ladies was lovely

The food here was fabulous, however the service was marred by the male waiter who was impatient and curt, it's awful that ones dining experience can be ruined by one person, the ladies who served were lovely

I found the food here to be just a touch above average in Montepulciano, but I thought the attentiveness of the wait staff was great. It's what made my day after a long day of travel from Pisa to Montepulciano. The view from the balcony is gorgeous, but you do need a reservation. I only snuck in without one since... More

This is a very romantic restaurant. Probably the best view in town: Sunset over Tuscany! Yet the food quality does not suffer from this prime spot at all! No, you really won't find a tourist trap here, but an actual fine dining spot with great taste, good portions and reasonable prices. Reservations are essential unless you show up exactly when...

We have visited this restaurant several times during the last two years and found the food, service and house wine to be excellent. I have recommended this restaurant to friends traveling to montepulciano and will continue to do so. We plan to dine at del borgo on our next visit to montepulciano

Be sure to get a table out on the terrace where you can watch the sunset. Combine this with the excellent food and you have a great combination. The risotto with asparagus and saffron was very good, and the main courses of steak, chicken and sausages with ravioli were all good.

We tried this restaurant on our first night in Montepulciano because it was close to our hotel. We had wonderful service and we were pleased with the selection of both delicious food & wine at reasonable prices--not to mention the amazing view as we dined on the terrace. We rarely visit the same restaurant twice when traveling, but this was... More

Located in the middle of Montepulciano, you will find this very good restaurant with a great view (when sitting outside). The staff is very good as well as rhe food and their large assortment of wines. To be able to sit outside to enjoy the sunset, please make a reservation. They speak English very well so that should not be... More

Tagliatelle con tartufo recommended by Chef. Such exceptional ingredient like tartufo was lost in the pasta.Plate looks good taste is average but service is very slow. I expected more taste! Tagliata alle erbe aromatiche was not what supposed to be!

We ate lunch on the terrace here twice on our visit to Montepulciano and it was fantastic on both occasions. The views out over the landscape are fantastic and the atmosphere in the restaurant is great, very friendly, and with just the right level of energy and bustle, not too hectic or busy. The food is excellent, especially the local... More
