We went there without huge expectations, most places that had been recommended to us turned out to be either tourist traps or just not at our level of expectations. This one however was a huge surprise, pretty much everything was perfect if you can tolerate sharing your table with others. I do not think that's an issue but some people... More

Florentine steak was out of this world. The place is obviously an institution in Montepulciano- shared tables and charismatic owner make for a fun and unique atmosphere. Menu aside from the steak is good but minimal, so would not recommend for vegetarians.

The steaks here are the best I've tasted in Europe. Coming from Texas, the beef in Europe can be disappointing and not as flavorful. The Chianina beef of Tuscany is the equivalent of any of the best beef that I have eaten anywhere. This is complimented by an entertaining venue run by the kind owner. He presents your be theatrically... More

This is a very special place to eat. Small setting with family style tables. The owner / host treated us like locals.

A very good food is served in a small but typical room. The prices are really reasonable. We strongly recommend the T Bone.

Our B&b owner Giuseppe already warned us of the normally long cue for dinner at Giullio's Osteria but the wait was well worth it: the best Fiorentina steak ever! And good value!

There is no way that you come here without booking because this place is always full! Usually you will have to share a table with other people, but I felt that that was part of the fun. The atmosphere was loud and fun but none of that compared to the food. They bring the T-bone steak to your table to... More

Outstanding food. The best Fiorentina I have had in my three years living in Italy. Unlabelled house wine at €12 a litre is fantastic value. Reservations are essential .... do not miss.

Few places in Europe are know for excellent quality and properly cooked steaks but the Florentines in Tuscany have mastered the art (pardon the pun). After mentioning a plan to spend a day of Brunello wine tasting around Montelcino, The Osteria Acquacheta in Montepulciano was recommended to us by our Agriturismo hosts in Umbria. So we made a reservation for... More
