We have been living in Italy over a year and have had some pretty amazing meals. Lunch at La Grotta was one of the best we have had thus far. The location is just outside the village of Montepulciano right in front of a gorgeous church. It is tucked away but from the outside terrace you can see the top of the church. Quiet and unassuming, this restaurant was the perfect end to a lovely afternoon before heading back to Rome. The owner was attentive and friendly. The dishes were extraordinary. The pasta was cooked to perfection as was the secondi. Because the plates were simple (yet elegant), the flavors really came through. Just remember to save room for dessert! All I can say is that the two hour drive from Rome is worth it just for this amazing little place!
