Everything about this meal was out of this world. Service: over the top friendly, you feel like family. Food: some of the best we had our whole trip, I savored every single bite. We walked from town and the views on the walk were breathtaking. Looking forward to returning to Montepulciano, just to eat at La Grotta. Make your reservations... More

We visited La Grotta on the recommendation of our hotel for lunch. It was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip and reasonably priced. The location is a little remote and we were late to our reservations due to a road closure. Driving through the city to find the restaurant had my boyfriend and I a... More

Our friend miscalculated the distance to the restaurant from where we parked the car -- so we hiked from one end of Montepulciano to the furthest opposite edge of town, up the hill, down the hill, away from town center, on a beautiful day but arrived in heavy perspiration and very hungry. We sat outside to cool down in the... More

We visited La Grotta the first time around 1999 and have been there a few times since then, most recently twice this week. The food is always delicious, the atmosphere warm and welcoming and the price/quality is right. The portions are not too big, which is nice, because then you manage to eat several dishes. In the summer you can... More

My husband and I had dinner here at the recommendation of our host at Relais San Bruno. This restaurant is a gem! The decor is stunning, and the food is amazing! I had pasta with white truffles, and it was delicious. The Sanguineto Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, recommended by our server, was outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Menu, wine selection, and service was outstanding! We order the menu fisso which gave us the opportunity to taste a wide selection of foods and desserts.

Good food, delicious wines, excellent service. So why are we still getting over it? Last January we climbed Mount Bromo (Java) with a couple we met on the HAL cruise. Fantastic excursion, fabulous company! You probably guessed: we met them in La Grotta, both their and our last night in Montepulciano. Fantastic memory!

Ristorante La Grotta has a fabulous location (the website photos do not do it justice) with an outside dining area overlooking the Abbe di Sant Biagio outside of the Montepulciano town walls. I would estimate that it’s about a half mile walk from the Piazza Grande where our hotel was located and it was a very pleasant stroll to get... More
