You can’t just pick any restaurant to celebrate a 30th Wedding Anniversary! We chose La Grotta! The service was impeccable, restaurant was beautiful and the food spectacular. Can’t wait to come back to Montepulciano and La Grotta.

We had lunch at La Grotta during our wine tour with Cortona Wine Tours. I had the best pasta that I had in Italy there, although the bistecca surely tempted me too. We sat out in the lovely garden area, overlooking the ancient church next...More

We had lunch before visiting the church next door. The restaurant is outside the city walls at the base of the hill. Parking is easy, especially compared to parking within Montepulciano. Our food was very tasty and was served in a reasonable timeframe. The menu...More

This is a tricky one! Parking only outside the old wall. We were pretty lucky catching a parking lot directly at P1 which is right at the entrance to the old city. I would recommend to come early enough to enjoy some time in... More
