Nice break from sightseeing

While our friends were climbing the steps of the fortress, we decided to have some cappacinos from this cafe. We sat outside across the street at tables with nice views of the valley. Very nice and tasty refreshments.

We really enjoyed this place. We were in town, touring the local sites and tasting the excellent wines from Brunello, Montalcino. Stopped in to have a casual break and a cappuccino and enjoy the local area. This place was wonderful.

We shared the platter for two (19€) which comes with three different glasses of vino to try. It's a lovely relaxed little cafe in which to try the Brunello, friendly and not at all pretentious like some places in Montalcino. The owner gave us a useful leaflet about the local wines and vineyards which we used to find the house... More

We arrived in Montalcino late for lunch, and way too early for dinner. Caffe la Fortezza had wines by the glass, a cheese plate and a mixed meat plate that totally fit the bill. Casual, friendly and accessible, we sat and enjoyed our food and wine, relaxed, and people-watched while a friendly and helpful staff took care of us. Would... More

We arrived in town after the true ristoranti had closed, and were looking for a place to get a late lunch. As we planned to visit La Fortezza, we headed in that direction. The caffe is nearby, and open, so we tried it. We were pleasantly surprised with a very tasty antipasto and tasting of 3 Brunello vintages. A very... More

we hadn't planned on lunch in Montalcino, When I asked an old man where we could find a decent ristorante - he led us to the Fortezza. We had bruscetta and caprese salad which was fine and price was ok. Nothing remarkable.

This restaurant has a beautiful outdoor area where you are overlooking the beautiful hills of Tuscany. Both the owner and the staff were friendly, helpful and extremely welcoming. We were able to try some different wines of the region and the staff explained each one, they were all delicious and the food was even better. It was a great experience... More
