Quaint and lovely and the food was great

We loved this quaint old restaurant in Montalcino. The food was great and the service was excellent. The quality of the wine list was simply marvelous. I highly recommend this place. do try their Pici it just melts in the mouth.

Great dinner at Grappolo Blu! Six of us (3 couples) all loved the food and of course the Brunello too. The ravioli and pici specialty were outstanding!

Ok, my wife and I agree that this was the most incredible meal of our 10 day vacation in Italy. From start to finish, every dish blew us away. We started with 3 different crostini of liver, pesto and cheese with honey and followed it with a pasta that was fantastic but I can't remember it because my mouth is... More

We spent a wonderful afternoon in Montalcino and kicked it off with lunch at Grappalo Blu. Fresh pasta, outstanding soup and delicious (and inexpensive) wine made for a great meal. The proprietor was friendly and helpful -- he gave us good directions to the winery we were visiting. The restaurant sits right off one of the main streets in this... More

Travelling with my wife, we hit this restaurant by chance. It was lunch time, we saw the sign and entered. It was full, but they found a table for two. Outside summer heat and inside, what a refreshment, cool stone interior. As a starter we ordered bruschetta and ribollita, polenta vegetariana and pici aglio e pomodorini. Excellent. Wine list is...

We ate at Grappolo Blu recently. While food was good and the wine selection great, the attitude of staff can be improved. Note they don't accept dogs and this seems to be a big deal.

Stopped here on our one day Tuscan private tour. My wife has "short pasta" with cheese and zucchini. She loved it. I had the local homemade spaghetti with Ragu sauce (loved the sauce, but had a few fennel seeds to add some zip). The pasta was outstanding! Had some house red with it, was just fine, although as others have... More

To make your travel in Italy richly rewarding you must visit Montalcino in Tuscany, and while there I strongly recommend lunch or dinner at this small, charming, restaurant in the historic heart of the town. This is Tuscan cooking at its very best, from the antipasto to the first courses of handmade pastas with traditional sauces to a wonderful range... More

8 of us went here for lunch and ordered a large variety of dishes and everything was really good. Rabbit in red wine sauce, wild boar, turkey, soup, pasta with peas and pancetta, and, of course, some brunello. It was definitely an expensive lunch but everyone really enjoyed their food and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is charming.

The only positive thing I can say about this restaurant is that they provide good service for rich people. It was visible that they were much more nicer and attentive to the couple that you could easily guess were rich and came there to taste different things and various wines. We feld missed and not welcomed, althoug we've also ordered... More
