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.

We selected this restaurant based on location and the very positive TripAdvisor reviews. Big mistake! Although service was ultra efficient on a Saturday night all the tables were taken, almost all with Americans, the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Wine selection was quite limited (they are located right next door to Contucci and promote their labels.) Tagliatelle... More

Wanted a good home style dinner our last night in town after one week. Saved del Conte for last due to its reputation as a family place. Food was delightful. Melon and ham was sweet and a great start. Pasta was flavorful but if you are a sauce person, ask for more sauce. Pork chop was BBQ and great. Wines... More

We were introduced to Vino Nobile by our waitress who did not want to over sell us. The food and service were good. 3 of us had the Tuscan Steak. It was good -- but the meat was a bit tough and over cooked. We had a true Florentine Steak earlier in Florence that was perfect. This was not on... More

Enjoyed two wonderful dinners at this lovely Osteria in Montepulciano. The meal of seafood spaghetti and fish was wonderful. Our waitress Emma was originally from Ireland and spoke excellent English. She provided guidance in helping us choose our meal courses and in our wine selection. The staff is friendly at this family run restaurant especially the grandmother who prepares most... More

We ate here our first night in Montepulciano. Earlier in the day a waitress directed us to our rental property. We returned and she recognized me. We were seated on the patio but it was chilly. The first moment a table became available she moved everything and seated us inside. Very nice. The food was very good as was the... More

This is a popular and busy Osteria in a nice setting at the top of Montepulciano with great home cooked food. We had the pennette con salmone and pici arrabiatta with a chickpea mousse and all were delicious. Great for good Italian cooking.

This small, family-owned and run restaurant makes you feel like a local. The food is delicious, the service is personal, and everyone there works together like a well-oiled machine. It was a pleasure to be part of it. Make a reservation and enjoy!

Montepulciano is a magic city which offers its visitors unforgettable memories. A steep, winding road will lead you to a medieval hill town with a wonderful view over the surrounding valley. L’Osteria del Conte is situated in one of the town centre’s main streets, near the renowned Sanctuary of San Biagio and ontepulciano’s Fortress. After several years of experience in enogastronomy and catering, Lorena together with her son, Paolo, decided to open this cosy little restaurant in Montepulciano, where you will have the possibility of tasting the genuine, delicious dishes offered by the Sienese cuisine.
