The food is outstanding -- amazing fresh from their garden with great flavors. Dessert is wonderful! Our waitress was great fun, helped with wine selections and (easily) convinced us to try their delicious desserts. Great location in the market square too! Swing by and make a reservation for the evening so you don't miss out!

This small restaurant, just off Piazza Grande, is much quieter than the restaurants closer to the main tourist area. It offers simple, traditional food based with ingredients coming from their organic farm. We had crostini and pici, both very tasty. The wines were not spectacular but did go well with the food. The service is friendly. Although the terrace is... More

This is our second visit to this restaurant. It did not disappoint. They took us at 9 pm without a reservation and gave us the best seat on the piazza with a beautiful breeze. We had bruschetta, lasagne, sausage with rosemary potatoes and a scrumptious cake with grappa and espresso. We can't wait to return.

Nice terrace, friendly staff, swift service and above all of course good typical food. I took the pick pasta with bread crumbs, a local specialty, a real treat!

We stayed an the Albergo Duomo in Montepuluciano and they recommended Quattor Venti for dinner -- we were not disappointed. Great selection of wines and the staff were friendly to us (americana with poor Italian language). Good spot to relax.

I had chicken with pomodoros (tomatoes) garlic and roasted potatoes. Italy has the best tomatoes and roasted potates. Great service and good prices.

We came here to eat on the strength of its trip advisor reviews. The service was good, but the food was just average. Pasta lacked flavor and the Rosemary steak was overcooked. We wouldn't return.

We visited here on our first night in Montepulciano, after spotting it at the corner of the main square. We had a delightful Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and shared a large bistecca fiorentina (a t-bone steak grilled very quickly), which was cooked deliciously rare. The service was friendly and good. All in all very enjoyable.

Four of us had lunch at this beautifully designed restaurant next door to the Cathedral at Montepulciano. Soup of the day was Minestrone, very good, enormous serving. Ribolitto, a vegetable stew, was also very good; enormous serving. Eggplant Parmesian was made with paper-thin slices of eggplant in layers, thin layers of cheese, thin layers of sauce, which made it a... More
