A nice, very busy, medium-priced restaurant (30 Euro per person for a three-courses meal). The menu is based on typical regional cuisine dishes. We tried ravioli with pici (fresh thick spaghetti) with aglione (tomato and garlic) sauce and with duck sauce. As a second course we had very good grilled sea fish, very tender roasted duck with a light vegetable... More

We were here on a Friday night in February. Not too busy. If in busy time of the year, you might have a wait...deal with... More

My son and I have just come back home after visiting the restaurant. We are spending a week in montepulciano over Christmas. I only write a review if a place is exceptional. This place is. Unassuming place. Staff really friendly. Just Italians in there. Great value. 70 euros for 3 courses each plus two glasses of wine and a beer... More

We ate here for my Mom's 60th birthday dinner. They went out of their way to make it special. The food was fantastic. The service was attentive. And the outdoor seating area was so lovely. I do recommend making a reservation. They are very popular and getting a table can be difficult for dinner.

The food was not good, both pasta dishes we had were not hot enough and too soft, they might have been pre-cooked and re-heated. The close by restaurant gattavecchi is a much better option. The service is very good.

I visited Osteria del Conte recently during a trip to Montepulciano with my mother and husband. We did not have a reservation, but arrived just as they opened, and we were seated immediately. The staff was incredibly warm and friendly. The wine list is very good, but the food was spectacular. They let us take our time and did not... More

We found Osteria del Conte on TA before our trip and it was a restaurant that we put on our list to consider. When the owner of our hotel also heartily recommended it without asking, we decided to go. Reservations are a must - we went on a Thursday night and the restaurant remained crowded. The restaurant, which is located... More

Our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Ostria del Conte after attending Sunday mass. We didn't have a reservation but were able to get an outdoor table. It was a sunny and hot afternoon, the staff was very helpful in adjusting the tables and the umbrella so that we'd all be in the shade and comfortable. The food... More

Had dinner with friends one evening. We shared 4 different pastas all of which were excellent. We had a platter of meats, cheeses and fruit which was very good as was the insalata caprese. The seating is a little tight, otherwise a great place per la cena.
