We were recommended La Grotta by our hotel for dinner with our two young (3 and under) children, so after an afternoon of seeing the sights in Montepulciano we took the road round and down to the restaurant to treat ourselves to some quick pizza... The restaurant is actually relatively formal, I would say more so outside than inside, with... More

We decided to try La Grotta on our last night in Montepulciano - we read the positive reviews in TripAdvisor and it was recommended by several locals. It turned out to be one of the best meals we had while visiting Tuscany and our only regret is not trying it sooner as we would have likely eaten there again. Our... More

La Grotta was so good we went twice in 4 days. The food was excellent, and our waitress was incredible knowledgeable about local wines. Our favorites included the poached egg and truffles and the pear sorbet. I didn't personally try it, but the bistecca also looked and smelled amazing.

On the recommendation of our hostess, the redoubtable Stefania, we booked for Friday night dinner at La Grotta, which we walked to from Montorio where we stayed, in five minutes. We booked in person two days before and we're warmly greeted and asked if we wanted to eat in the courtyard if the weather was fine. We said yes, it... More

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!
