Situated opposite the interesting church - Chiesa Di San Biagio - at the foot of the Montepulciano hill village (plenty of parking), we found the food delicious, service fine, presentation good, surroundings comfortable. The only issue was that we found our main table manager, rather impersonal. Very polite, helpful, efficient but not inter-active. Mind you, we can always have an... More

So, the food here is just delicious. We had zucchini and aubergine tart and beef tartare to start followed by boned quail and rack of lamb. It really was incredible and accompanied by some great wines (we tried a few by the glass and you can't go wrong). Throw in some excellent service, a romantic garden to dine in and... More

My wife and I visited this on our honeymoon. The setting (we are outside on the Terrance) was incredible. I had the ravioli and my wife had the lamb- both are excellent choices. This is a must-go if you're visiting montepulciano

This restaurant is located away from the piazza and the crowds. It is a delightful Tuscan restaurant with excellent menu choices. You can sit inside or out in the garden. The servers are excellent, timely and knowledgable. Prices are very reasonable and parking is easy. We will return on our next visit to Montepulciano.

The food was very good with a great choice of wines at varying prices. The staff were very friendly and we didn't feel rushed at all. There is plenty of easy parking around the Restaurant too which makes it easy compared to Montepulciano centre.

We visited La Grotta after 12 years again and still this place is great and everything just makes sense. The Food is great with great flavours and decent portions in order to be able to take all courses, the garden is a lovely place to dine or have lunch and the service is very good without being pretentious.

Nice outdoor patio, great service and the food was amazing. Try the chef tasting, it was the best food during our trip to Tuscany.

The food was OK but nothing special and we had to wait way too long. The portions were rather small. e.g. 6 pieces of ravioli ... It is in a very nice location but that's all. After reading several evaluations our expectations were high and unfortunately we got disillusioned. The prices are way too high. Those who like posh places... More

Where else can you get a remarkably beautiful church out front, a fabulously romantic back patio, and food which will make you stretch your limits or come back for every meal thereafter? Easy answer. You have found your place. Come here while the sun is coming down and you can your the surrounding area before settling down for a fabulous... More
