Description: Montepulciano is a magic city which offers its visitors unforgettable memories. A steep, winding road will lead you to a medieval hill town with a wonderful view over the surrounding valley. L’Osteria del Conte is situated in one of the town centre’s main streets, near the renowned Sanctuary of San Biagio and ontepulciano’s Fortress. After several years of experience in enogastronomy and catering, Lorena together with her son, Paolo, decided to open this cosy little restaurant in Montepulciano, where you will have the possibility of tasting the genuine, delicious dishes offered by the Sienese cuisine.

“Delightful service and delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

We looked for the crowd and, of course, the TripAdvisor decal, for our spontaneous lunch in Montepulciano. This osteria provided very friendly service and great food. The local wine was wonderful, and the homemade bread a standout. We had wonderful gnocchi and prociutto and melon. Really felt comfortable -we highly recommend. Thanks again, reviewers!

“Pici pasta and duck is awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

After reading reviews tried the duck pici pasta and boar ragu/tagliatelli.
Awesome, great service. Only point of critique some of food is a tad salty and bread a little hard.
Iceman bottom line- awesome - go with pici Pastas.

“Delicious and typically Tuscan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Delicious food and a wide range of wines (also open sweet dessert wines for fanciers of them). To highlight is the service, great host! We stayed in Montepulciano one week in September and visited that restaurant three times!
By the way: The owner mentioned that tourists with nearly each nationality visited her restaurant - but so far no Inuits. So, Inuits - drive there and enjoy a delicious meal !! You are welcome !!

“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We were recommended Osteria del Conte by our gracious host at Politian Apartments & he was right! We stayed 5 nights in Montepulicano & went back twice to Osteria del Conte.
Great service, great wine, great atmosphere & you really shouldn't go past the Pica pasta...it was to die for!! 5 stars all the way for us!
