It was hot and we were hungry yesterday as we wandered the ancient streets of Montepulciano. We found La Grotto on TripAdvisor and decided to walk the 800 meters up and then down to the restaurant. We were led to a beautiful and cool garden behind the restaurant and, after downing lots of cool water, we were happily fed with... More

My wife & I spent a few days in Montepulciano and had selected this restaurant as a highlight restaurant for our week in Italy. We were not disappointed. Do not miss the opportunity. We sat on the patio with a direct view of San Biagio. As the night progressed and the moon came out it framed a very romantic evening.... More

I heard lots of great things about La Grotta and the reviews here seem to confirm it. OK, I am a vegetarian so I surely have a different point of view, but the whole la Grotta experience was just disappointing. I arrived at 12:30 sharp for lunch, but it took them almost 10 minutes to remove the chair, which was... More

Two years ago I made a decision to go back to the wonderful Tuscan village Montepulciano as part of my 50th celebrations. Included in this was a dinner booking for 6 on the big night at la Grotta. I booked via email about six months out and from start to finish it was the highlight of the trip. Cleary all... More

We have eaten in many places around the world but in terms of location and quality of food this is hard to beat. The tasting menu is incredibly good value and the staff are excellent. It is their 50th birthday next year and it is not hard to see why they have lasted.

Nice restaurant with beautiful garden at the bottom of Montepulciano. Better choice than the touristy restaurants in Montepulciano itself. Great wine list

Great out of the way location that made it easy to get in-out. We were next to an amazing church. The service was very efficient. The food was great (we did the tasting menu) and the dinner ended up being on the high end of pricing (we did have 2 bottles of wine for 2 people), but worth every Euro.

We've been coming here for the last few years. It never fails to impress. The pastas are always fresh and delicious. The rabbit was perfectly cooked and seasoned. A pleasure as ever.
