Nice Atomosphere for Lunch

We walked up to the top of the town and decided to have lunch here due to the patio setting and fantastic views. Service was outstanding and the food was pretty good although a little on the higher side but given the views and location that was understandable.

I had the wild boar in ragu(outstanding) and my husband had a truffle sauce that made his eyes roll back in his head with appreciation. The wine was excellent, the service was helpful without being pushy, and the fresh pasta was a sensual delight. We did not sit on the terrace and chose: instead, to sit out front and listen... More

The restaurant overlooks the Tuscan countryside and vineyards who's produce is on the wine list. The service was good but the could have been a little more attentive. The terrace is not particularly large so book during busy times. We worth it for the sunset views alone

Osteria del Borgo is one of our 'go to' places in Montepulciano. The view over the valley is phenomenal. The food is 'cucina ticipa' or typical to the area. Francesco is wonderful to select great vino nobile wines from small producers in the area. His stories and personal connections make for a wonderful evening. Reservations highly recommended, particularly is you... More

Fantastic food! The tiramisu was outstanding! Best tiramisu I've had anywhere. Great outdoor patio with a wonderful view. We were able to sit outside and watch the stars that were lined up on this beautiful evening. Something that hasn't happened for two thousand years, we were told. Beautiful. And the wine.... goes without saying how good that is. Thank you... More

We were planning to have the florentine steak in other osteria (recommended by Rick Steves), but it was closed. So we ended up in this place. It was late in the evening and unfortunately all spots on a terrace were taken. We were asked to come in half-hour, but it didn't work, so we had a table for two outside... More

It could be the average tourist trap. Yet they never gave in. With the thousands of tourists swarming through Montepulciano, the temptation is obvious. Yet every single visit to the lovely terrace restaurant of the Osteria del Borgo, over the past years, has been a pleasure. No big surprises in the menu, yet all dishes are carefully prepared with fresh... More

We reserved a table for 14 people on the terrasse. We were 4 families with children, and the staff were great in the midst of the "chaos" that comes with large groups. Fantastic sunset. Food was tasty and the wine very nice. Would return and recommend.

Rain sent us inside, but there we found pleasant ambiance. Ordered wild pig and pasta along with green salad and sautéed mushrooms. Fine bottle of wine. Dessert cannot remember which. Friendly, efficient service, including briefly from owner and son. Left quite satisfied despite the hefty bill.

We had been travelling all morning from southern Lazio and arrived a bit late in Montepulciano as a stop on the way to Montalcino. Nevertheless this restaurant was still serving. It was a sticky warm day. We sat on the terrace which has beautiful views. I wish we had say inside to cool down but we made the most of... More
