We liked sitting outside this restaurant at 7.30pm. The waiter was charming and attentive. We ordered our meals & wine and were quite happy until the waitress arrived. No social skills whatsoever! We complained about our bread being stale and it was reluctantly changed but she was obviously not happy. However as we ate our meal we became aware that... More

very nice place to stop, savor the local food, and look around at the passers-by. Relaxing outdoor tables and chairs, shady, if you pick the right table for the time you are there.

Had very good choice of local original Tuscan cuisine. Good local red wine (did come as a surprise). Anywhere in Tuscany wine was very good. Enough about wine, claro! The food was well prepared, sauces where testy, wild boar meet was delicious, pork shank was out of this world and can't go wrong with salad "caprice". Fresh mozzarella was delicious,... More

We stopped to eat a quick lunch before touring the city. Service was quick and our waiter was very pleasant. The food we had was very good. The bean and the vegetable soups were good. I had pasta with a boar's meat sauce that was very good. Others at the table enjoyed their food. It was a good place for... More

We noticed that the prices were lower than omong the competitors nearby, but decided to try it. We had salad, ladagna and wild boar with polenta. Pleasant surprise! What impresses us most was that when we had ordered a Montepulciano Nobile, he brought the bottle and a decanter to the table, opened the bottle and decanted it on the spot.... More

We visited Trattoria Caffe Marzocco as it was the first restaurant we spied upon as we entered montelpulciano. I had beef in chianti - approximately one third of the meat was edible the remainder being gristle. The liquid floating around on the plate was 'strange' tasting to say the least and I left nearly all of it. My husband's beef... More

We spotted this place shortly after entering the old city of Montepulciano. We were hungry, and wanted something fast. All three pf us ordered a plate of Ribbolita. It was very nice. Full of flavour. It was such a thick soup, we couldn't eat anything more. So that's the only thing I can give an opinion on. The staff was... More

One of the first restaurants you'll see in the Piazza Savonarola coming through the old gates, Trattotia Caffe Marzocco might appear to be a typical tourist trap. That notion could be reinforced by the menus printed in a least 5 languages. Don't be mislead; this is a solid restaurant serving good quality Tuscan food. Both inside and outside seating is... More
