“A beautiful location does not necessarily mean good food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were quite disappointed by Osteria Porta di Bacco. It was one of the places recommended by the place where we stayed and unfortunately we didn't look at what was written in Trip Advisor before going there. After eating in many excellent restaurants in Italy, we found the food here bland. The side salad was not tasty and the pasta was sticky and not well seasoned. The service was very slow with very little interest taken in how we got on with our dinner. I suggest that you look for a better restaurant in the area.

“Horrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012 via mobile

Never had so bad food and services. Never ever go there. Waiteress was lazy and uninterested and forgot to bring us desert. Food was tasteless, hardly impossible to cook so bad.

“Not worth going”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

It took ages before we got our meals and all of us got our dishes on different times. Expensive comapred to what you get and the food is not that great to be honest. Better places to find in Montepulciano!!

“So many other better choices in Montepulciano”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2010

We hadn't heard anything about this restaurant, so thought we'd give it a try. It's connected to an enoteca next door. Our pici was wonderful! We also each ordered chicken dishes which were ok but certainly not great. Our bill was 53E, and it just wasn't worth the price. They also charge a 10% coperto here which helped make the bill larger. With all the great choices in Montepulciano, I'd recommend you walk further up the hill and try a different place.
