A unique opportunity to taste our wines and olive oil paired with local specialities prepared by Lilian's kitchen. Tasting of our wines paired with traditional Montepulciano cuisine in the striking refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria dei Servi (AD1200) and on the terrace overlooking San Biagio and the Val, d'Orcia. Reservations recommended.

Wine tasting and the Osteria - amazing!

Quite deceiving when you walk upon the Osteria in the off season as it appears closed, but the owner came running out to assure us they were indeed open and invited us to taste Vino nobile and enjoy some pecorino from Pienza. Staff spoke of the long history of Gattavecchi, invited us to see the... read more

When went through door we weren't sure it was open but when directed upstairs to the barn like restaurant absolutely heaving with families with children visiting Father Christmas in the church a little further up the hill!

We ate here two different nights and had some fantastic dishes!! We tried the rabbit, pasta with fungi, pasta with duck (to die for) and some of their steak dishes. They have a cool cellar that you can visit on your own, and good wine! The staff was welcoming and pleasant. We spent a total of three weeks in Italy... More

we have been traveling through Italy for two weeks. This was one of the longest lunches we encountered in our trip with very poor service. The food is okay but nothing to die for - it's not worth the wait. The servers are too busy and not on top of the tables for a decent service. The steak was over... More

Wonderful food and not at all heavy. My wife and I could not... More

We've been drinking quite a bit of Gattavecchi wine while in Montepulciano, their shop is directly across from our inn, so we also wanted to try the cantina. Amica, in the enoteca, was kind to let us borrow two wine glasses during our stay since our inn didn't have any. We chose the special brushetta platter at the cantina....it was... More

Perfect combination betwen the owners: husband is italian and wife is brazilian. Oh, she is the chef too so you can find a great italian fusion. The atmosphere is amazing (local is more than 800 years old) and is duly recomended to enjoy the afternoon after visiting the beautiful city of Montepulciano. Ask for the homemade Spumante and cheese+salame table.... More
