Two words: Etruscan Rabbit

Fantastic range of wine. Very good service. Great food, Etruscan Rabbit was the best meal we've had in Tuscany.

We actually ended up here because of the view which was wonderful. We had just 2 course lunch and it was good. Staff seemed a bit tired but it was hot and end lunch time almost over.

I enjoyed this restaurant so much I ate here twice during my stay, which is uncommon for me. The first night I was able to get a table outside overlooking the valley and hills. Spectacular! The fresh pecorino cheese sauce on the gnocchi were wonderful and the breaded lamb was tasty. Great selection of wine too!

2 nights in a row I had the braised beef cheeks, and my wife had the wild boar. Absolutely amazing, must try! The staff is very accommodating and the place is very quaint.

Another lucky find, although it helps that there was a TA sticker on an outside window. We ordered fantastic pasta: a sort of spinach gnocchi and pici with meat sauce. Both fantastic. Then, we splurged on dessert. Left feeling like we'd eaten a little slice of heaven. Highly recommend.

Our group of 4 needed a break from touring the lovely town of Montepulciano. We were between meals and spotted not only a Trip Advisor sign outside this wonderful little restaurant right off the Piazza Grande, but also that their offerings could be enjoyed on an outside terrace. Once we were seated, the service was prompt and helpful with making... More

The restaurant has a terrace with a marvelous view of the Tuscan hills, service is very competent and you can also find a wine shop in the lower floor. We had great food paired with famous local wines, every dish was perfect!

From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Francesco the host and son of the chef you know you are in a special place.
