We ate here three times during our stay- very good food (risotto, ravioli with wild boar ragu and beef cheeks were our favourites). Wine list has lots of choice, not silly money and I take great comfort from any place that has the wine stored all around the restaurant:-) Service was friendly and not obtrusive. We ate on the terrace... More

Beautiful little tucked away patio for dinner under the stars with a little view out from Montepulciano. Helpful, friendly, English speaking staff. Had the house special pasta, cinta senese...must try. Husband had beef cheeks which he enjoyed. Mom had lamb with apples, also a good choice. Seems to be popular with the tourists...had a big table of loud tourists when... More

A cozy restaurant in the square, away from most of the hustle and bustle. Good food and service. We didn't realize until finishing dinner that they have one of those card operated wine bars, where you can get samplings of various wines at a nominal price. My lamb was very good and my husband ordered the sausage with fava beans,... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local who works at one of the wineries close by. I went there with a group of 4. Everything was great. Even the mixed salads seemed really fresh. We each got a pasta dish which we all loved. I got the special truffle pasta for my main and thought it was wonderful.... More

Stumbled across this and it was absolutely perfect! We had our 1 year old son with us and they went out of there way to make us feel welcome. Managed to get a table on the terrace as we got there for early lunch...people were queuing when we left. Great food - I had the Wild Boar and my wife... More

My wife and I ate after locals told us about this place. While it is true that the panorama is fantastic and the staff is efficient, the food falls a bit short if you know your basics. We are basically foodies and 3 out 4 dishes we ordered were served with the famous "al ragu" sauce, which is pretty much... More

Last night we had dinner at this delightful restaurant after the 2nd day of Montepulciano's annual up-hill barrel rolling contest (40th year) . All this was explained to us by the son of the owner who was delightful and spoke English beautifully. The wait staff was most helpful and attentive and we all loved our food. They were very sweet...

Had lunch at del Borgo after walking around the town. The location is right at the top of the town just near the main square and there are good view over the surrounding countryside ( if you can get a table near the balcony). The pappardelle with ragu was excellent and local red wine too. Service here is friendly and... More

We had lunch in this restaurant inside as the terrace was fully booked. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food is very good and all is presented beautifully. This has been a excellent experience for us. As a customer you are treated kindly and with respect at a correct price. Happy to come again some day.
