We had a wonderful time in this place. They seat you when they want where they want (despite booking) but it was fun, especially since we were seated next to a very nice couple. The T-Bone (which was shown to us before cooking right after it was cut by the chef, haha) is delicious and the pasta with garlic and... More

What a great restaurant. The staff were really friendly and helpful despite our lack of Italian language skills. The starters were simple and delicious and the process of selecting your cut of beef was great fun. Make sure you have the tiramisu for dolce. Really nice house red and overall a really good value night out. Make sure you book... More

If you want a quiet meal for two, this is NOT for you. But if you want some good food in a hectic environment, and lots of people around, it's good fun. There are two sittings and we queued outside at 7pm. Speciality is the steak but they are enormous and too big even for two of us to share.... More

We had a great, fun/ festive meal on a Sunday night here. This restaurant had 2 dinner seatings - early (about 6:30 pm) and then late (about 8:30 pm). We opted for the early seating. Patrons are seated at long tables with 6-8 persons at each one. One important thing to know: they will give you one and only one... More

This place has a big reputation and lots of hype and accolades, but all of the attention is well deserved. This is a truly great dining experience. It was so good we went twice during our three days in the Montepulciano area. Although its signature dish is the steak florentine, the restaurant has an extensive menu. The prices are very... More

I ate a ton of good food in Montepulciano, but this place was also an experience. You will share a table with other people. I ended up sitting next to someone who lives one town over from where a I grew up, thousands of miles away. Crazy!

This was our last meal in Southern Tuscany and we could not have been more pleased! The food was perfect simple Tuscan fare done as it should be. Giulio's pride in his work, great product and personal attention to each patron were evident and made the experience memorable. The family style seating adds a bit of adventure to the meal--we...

Family style seating brings diners together who begin as strangers and leave as friends. Our table mate happened to be a local hotel manager and he took charge for us when it came to ordering our meal. Funghi laden pasta followed by a huge steak (fit for all of us to share) cooked to perfection. My new quest is to... More

We found the food to be average to good. We don't eat meat and perhaps meat eaters are more positive as this restaurant focuses on meat. Otherwise we liked the concept and enjoyed sharing table with other guests.
