A Fun Night but Not the Best Steak Ever!

I had read the very impressive reviews on TA so while we were staying in Montapulciano I wanted to try this restaurant. You are seated in very long tables and you can not help but speak to your neighbors. The 2 couples next to us were also from the US and of course spoke English so we had a great... read more

Amazing food, great service and fun. I have lived in Italy for over 6 years and this was up there with some of the best experiences. Go!

Liked the friendly conversation starting set up (family style seating, great to meet other families/groups), the conversations however started with a focus on how rude and pushy the staff was. If you can get past the rudeness, the food is very good and at a very reasonable price. The people setting on both sides of us were a complete delight.... More

This place, from the moment you walk in, gives you the feeling that you're not in a regular restaurant. The food is of the highest quality, and the environment is so unique. I would eat here every day if I could. Montepulciano was one of our favorite stops, and this place was the crown jewel of our visit there.

We asked our B&B to make the reservation, as they don't take by email and I don't speak Italian very well. There are evidently two sittings; ours was at 7:30. The place was full. Seating is a bit cramped - you get to know your neighbours, which is charming. We had the specialty, Bifsteca Fiorentina, with some Pici to start,... More

We loved the family style seating where we met people from all over the world! The Steak Florentine was outstanding and the wine flowed freely. They do have other things on the menu but nobody noticed!

Nine friends who had all stayed at a nearby Agriturismo met for a group dinner. They are known for their Tuscan beef and did not disappoint. The meat, and plenty of it, was cooked perfectly. It might have been the best tasting beef I have ever eaten. The pasta dishes and antipasto were all excellent. We shared every desert on... More

If you like beef I guarantee you'll love this place. Just go with the flow and trust the staff you won't be disappointed. The best beef I've eaten in the world including Houston, Chicago and Calgary's best steakhouses. Nothing touches the quality of food, simplicity and brilliantly authentic service. Just watch the fine diners cringe when the get one glass... More

Julius is a one of a kind proprietor, very entertaining. You will sit at a long table, family style. Reservations are needed, as there are only 2 seatings. Great food, great fun.

We have dined at Acquecheta before - twice in 2011 and again in 2012. This year, on our visit to Tuscany with the mother-in-law, we wanted to take her along to our favourite steak place! After making our reservation from the UK several weeks before, we arrived for the 7:30pm sitting, excited to get sat down for the experience again!... More
