We enjoyed a lovely meal with great service on our 9th anniversary. The staff was very pleasant. The food was excellent and we both felt that we had a range of local flavours in the 5 courses. The prices are a little high but truly reflect the quality. We will return on our next visit to Montepulciano!

We ate a month's worth of great dinners across five countries, and my girlfriend and I agree this was our absolute #1. Make sure they can seat you in the back terrace, which is beautiful and so quaint. Every item we got was of superb quality. Don't think you can go wrong with anything but the vegetable tagliatelle and rabbit... More

Let me start by saying that my "star rating" is very strict when it comes to places to eat in the Montepulciano area as each place was excellent. In order to get 5 starts from a reviewer like me you have to have been a truly memorable, fantastically delicious establishment that made our dining experience extremely enjoyable and unforgettable.

Food might be good but the lack of kindness and sensibility of the staff makes this place a remarkable example of rudeness! Avoid it if you are looking for a friendly atmosphere and if you believe in human kindness!!

A combination of great, excellent food, a wine cellar that is second to none, impeccable and friendly service in a lush garden = definitely the No 1 choice in Montepulciano!

This is a very good restaurant, charming knowledgable staff, good atmosphere, garden, consistently good food, great selection of wines by the glass and not expensive for the quality. Steak is steak, but theirs is the best I've ever eaten, fabulous pasta and the mascarpone mousse with coffee ice cream whilst simple is utterly, lusciously wonderful. I want to live next... More

We spent a week in Montepulciano and visited a number of restaurants in the town. La Grotta is a bit pricier than most other restaurants in Montepulciano, but well worth the money. Very high quality food and service. If you visit during the warmer part of the year, I can really recommend to book a table in the garden as... More

Dining outside in a lovely garden, with good distance between the tables. The food were very well prepared. No mistakes. Good winecard and good prices. Service very effecient but not overcrowding the table. Not very innovative, but who cares when the food is flawless and tasting perfectly. The tastingmenu cost 50€ and was more than well worth the price compared... More

My wife and I had one of the best dinners here during our trip to Tuscany. I had the tasting menu paired with wine and my wife had pasta as well as stealing food from me. Only regret we didn't go back for a second visit. But we will return next trip to Montepluciano.

We managed to get a Monday night booking for a party of 3. The restaurant is very appealing, spacious with tables separated thruout a couple of different rooms. The wait staff were friendly and prompt to take orders and deliver drinks to the table. The bread brought to the table was a little dry and without oil not very appealing.... More
