“The food was 'nice' but the service lacked well..pretty much everything”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

The food is great here- however on our first visit to this restaurant we took our time to order and the waitress and manager stood in the door way (right next to our table) were quite clearly getting very impatient and made no effort to hide their frustration despite the fact they weren't busy, it was and 7 o clock in the evening so we weren't pushing the closing time boundaries and there was five people at our table varying from the age of 15 to 81.
The food was lovely and couldn't be faulted but it's a real shame about the service!

“Good location, nice staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The food here is good, certainly but the real attraction is the nice location - at a great vantage point to see people go by with a nice street scape - and the nice staff.

We were travelling with a small baby and the restaurant staff were very helpful and kind.

Also when it started raining we were ushered indoors and allowed sit at indoor tables until the rain passed.

Definitely one of the places you should eat in MP

“Montepulciano treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

This little trattoria was formerly just a cafe situated 100 yards up from one of the main gates leading into the beautiful Tuscan hilltop town of Montepulciano. It is family run and offers a reasonable choice of food all made by the mother in the family. It is not a big establishment so it may be pot luck on finding an available table but is well worth a visit.
