Fantastic steak, atmosphere, and prices!

Let's start with 6 euros for a liter of good red wine! Watching the chef cut our steaks and bring them to the table for approval was fun! The steak was cooked perfectly. Just make sure you have a reservation, as their 2 seatings (7:30 and 9:15) fill up very quickly.

Very busy place. Love the family style seating. Steak was very good and ambiance was entertaining on the process in which this restaurant operates. Only two seatings per evening. Make reservations. Be patient. Drink some Montepulciano wine. Enjoy the evening. It was fun. Food was good but nothing spectacular. I'd eat here again just for the ambiance of the evening.

This place is an absolute treasure. Great buzz. It has excellent pasta, but more importantly the steak and atmosphere are awesome! Make sure to book in advance. We went back in the same week

Definitely a different offer to what you will see around. Very informal with shared tables and what's great - the owner circling around and helping guests with their orders. I had a good lunch here with a delicious lasagna with zucchini and great salad with pears. I will definitely come again and if you are around in Montepulciano I recommend... More

We felt as though we had been taken advantage of after we ordered our steak for 50 Euros. Maybe it was a language problem, but we thought the steak they showed us was going to be the steak we were going to eat....it wasn't....and when asked for it to be cooked medium it was rare and we had to ask...

We loved the place! Great people, family style dining. The steak, on par with Any I have had, yet with it amazing pasta, local cheese dishes, and amazing Tuscan ambiance and hospitality. The owner personally shows you your steak prior to cooking it. Mine was a 45 oz sirloin, my son a 60 oz T Bone. We never eat so... More

I visited this restaurant about 12 years ago and it was the best visited in Montepulciano. Now I believe that it is even better. It is by far the most popular among residents of the town so do book ahead. Our T-bone was cut to the size of the number eating it and was brought to the table before being... More

We approached this Osteria by chance. We were headed to another restaurant but people in the village suggested this one for the meat. The owners are very nice people, they welcomed us and explained the dishes. The place is small, tables are very limited. Definitely a booking is a good idea. Very crowded and too small space for me.
