Nice restaurant located just outside the old village walls. Classical restaurant is located in a stunning building, exceptional service, delicious food. We had a full lunch menu. Each dish was an experience. Very good selection of typical Tuscany wines. Highly recomended!

Very much enjoyed our dinner at this lovely restaurant. Attentive but not overbearing wait team, and food came at good intervals giving us time to savor each course. Food was delicious and a good wine list with options for most budgets. Highly recommend this place....More

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.
