Great food and location

This place was recommended by our hotel. It was outstanding. The service was perfect and the food couldn't have been better. We sat inside because the weather was cool but they have lovely patio that would be great to eat at if the weather is warm. All in all a great restaurant.

Lovely home cooked style food, some of the best we've had in the area (we've been coming here for about seven years as my family have a house in Umbria). There's a small garden you can eat in, which is lovely in the Spring and Summer. Highchairs are available, though they wouldn't be suitable for any younger than perhaps one... More

One night in Montepulciano will not be enough. We are grateful to have stumbled here. With my teenage daughter, the degustation seemed like an interesting choice and if all we eat for the remainder of our holiday is spaghetti bolognese I will feel as though I managed to convey the breadth of Italian fare to her by our meal tonight....

We eat at La Grotta every year when we are in Italy. We have not been in a year and are looking forward to being there again. I have probably eaten here fifteen times over the years. This food is divine and the menu extraordinary. I highly recommend the Tasting menu - always delicious and often surprising. The service is... More

We went there for Easter lunch so the place was full. The service, nonetheless, was very, very attentive. And the ambience on a lovely early spring day was perfecto. The food came close to excellent but somehow lacked that extra touch of flavor that would have made the whole experience five star.

Although prices were at the upper end, the food and service was faultless and the setting was also very pleasant

We were referred to this restaurant by Cinzia at the wonderful Locanda di San Francesco. Her recommendation did not disappoint. We walked down to the restaurant from town. The walk down was fine. The walk up a little more challenging, but then again, we had a wonderful meal to burn off. We were warmly greeted by our host and shown... More

This is a restaurant with history, family owned and run for 50 years. The food is delicious, consistent, and beautifully presented. Perfect service and ambiance. If you go in warm weather, ask for the garden.
