I visit Italy at least once a year and have traveled a good deal around Europe and the USA and this is hands down the best cappuccino I've every had. There are no weird thrills about it, but it is just plain simple and perfect. I've also had their panini, which is made to order and makes for a delicious,... More

Within a minute of walking in, the manager / owner had insulted me 3 times. And I only walked in for a simple bottle of water. So I put it back in the fridge and left. Bizarre experience.

The guy that works there (who seems the owner too) as well as the lady are as rude as can be. When asked if he can add pesto to a panini sandwich he replied in a very rude manner that pesto is for pasta, NOT sandwiches. We felt very uncomfortable and stressed being in the restaurant because of the rude... More

Walk up the hill and it is on the left on the main thoroughfare to the top of Montepulciano. There is seating inside and are a four tables with bench seats outside. The husband & wife owners appear to have renovated this place recently and were both nice and helpful. Because of that, I would love to stop here again... More

Quaint little bar atop Montepulciano. Wonderful bruscetta and amazing wine. We sat outside and soaked up the Tuscan ambiance. We only stopped for a few hours as part of a tour but I could have stayed all week!
