“Great place, pity about the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Lovely terrace, stunning view, charming staff but the food was mediocre. Good advice on wine, of which they naturally have an immense selection.

The restaurant has a breathtaking view. The staff is super friendly and welcoming.

We tried the freshly-made Pici and it was delicious!!!!

Best place in Montepulciano to have a glass of wine, amazing food and enjoy the beautiful sunset!

We stayed @osteria del borgo B&B and we ate at their restaurant as we had a 10% discount:we had a great time,terrace is just beautiful,wine list is plenty of good choices and prices are reasonable,food is just amazing.
I also shipped 12 bottles of Nobile as they have a well equipped wine shop and Francesco is very knowledgeable(and a good salesman :)
Definitely recommend!
Grazie di tutto,

“Killer sunset view but food that didn't live up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Great view, disappointing food. Steak sauce was good, beef itself chewy and poor quality. Pici with sage and pesto was too strong tasted, sage overpowering all the other flavors.

Service was good, we received a warm welcome and enjoyed the beautiful sunset from the balcony table.
