Very good.

Two of us had dinner one night here. The Wine list was extensive, the service was very good, and the food was also very good. The only downside we had was that there were no local customers in the place, everyone was either English or American and obvious tourists. This may just have been a quirk... read more

We have dined here multiple times. It always exceeds expectations. It all starts with the charming owner who ensures perfection. The best soup, salad, and homemade pasta dishes in Tuscany. The wine list is extraordinary and highlights the local Brunellos. Don't leave without the soufflé' . Planning to go back again before our trip is complete! Charming atmosphere and great... More

Food was great, prices were most reasonable for Montalcino - service was quick and friendly. We had a great meal and could see that others were enjoying the restaurant as well. We believe this is family run.

This must have been our 10 or more visit to Grappolo, and it never disappoints. It is a friendly down to earth type place, nothing too fancy but with simple home cooking and tasty food. Hope to be back sooner than last visit.

Passing by Montalcino we decided to have dinner in this restaurant that seemed very cute. Big mistake! Service was very slow, the owner looked like he doesn't care about anything at all. We had pasta all'aglio - garlic cut in big pieces, no salt. My main course, guancia di manzo was ok, but my husband's main course, rabbit in brunello... More

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
