Probably our best meal in Montepulciano. This is a small place, so reserve ahead even for first seating, as it fills up fast. Excellent selection of local Tuscan dishes, recommend the wild boar over the local pici pasta.

The ambience is very... More

The Quattro Vente was recommended by our Hotel and we were thrilled with our experience. We had confusion with our reservation but they were so sorry and made room for us as soon as possible. The meal was very good with local pasta or meat dishes. Outdoor seating is available but it was too cool for us to sit outside.... More

My husband and I spent six days here and we kept finding our way back to this restaurant. The food was consistently delicious, the service was excellent and it was in a great location on the piazza. We especially enjoyed our waitress who always offered excellent recommendations. A fun group of people run the place and we will miss them.

We were about ready to give up searching for the 'perfect' restaurant on Montepulciano after a long day when we decided to climb tot he very top of the town and happened upon a small, cozy restaurant with a line of people waiting to get in. We thought this was a good sign, and so we stood around for a... More

In the middle of the plaza. Good options for a light lunch and decent options on the menu. They struggled a bit with service (they were busy), but the food was good. Maybe no the best pizza in the region, but the pasta/lasagna was very nice

this was quite a surprise-- its right on the main public square and recommended in one of the guidebooks so i was skeptical at best-- no more! the food is fresh, grown on thier own farm and just simply as good as it gets... a perfect lunch spot

A pretty little restaurant on the Piazza Grande at the top of the town. Nice outdoor and indoor dining. Somewhat unassuming, but the food here is not only super fresh but very tasty as well. An unexpected delight in many ways. Fast, efficient and friendly service, good prices, and excellent fresh pasta. We ate here for lunch, having the ravioli... More

Best T bone steak we had in tuscany. The millefeuille dessert is amazing. The vegetarian parmeggiana was great too Lucky that one other restaurant was full.
