We traveled around Italy for our honeymoon and although we didn't have a single bad meal, our dinner at Acquacheta was a stand-out. It was a chilly, cozy evening in Montepulciano, and the moment the doors to the restaurant opened we felt like we were in someone's home for dinner. The house red wine was delicious, the pecorino with truffle... More

Like everyone else, you read the reviews in Rick Steves or Trip Advisor and hope you guess right. You only get so many nights here before you have to come home. The issue here is that this is part theater. I'm not saying youre going to the Renaissance festival, but the owner swinging his cleaver and carrying the steaks around... More

Although not particularly outstanding, the food at Osteria Acquacheta is ok. The problem with the place is the attitude of the management. The experience begins with the wait outside. The doors are opened at precisely 12:30 (we went for lunch) not a minute sooner, making one feel a little like sheep to begin with. When we went inside, a staff... More

We arrived at 19:30 (when they open) and found that they were already booked. We booked ourselves for the next evening, no big deal. At the following night we were shown a seat in the middle of a table - all a lot of fun - but had to wait 15 min for one of the 3 or 4 english... More

A hard place to get into for a good reason. The family style restaurant is always packed. Don't try without reservation unless you are lucky and someone cancels. Awaiting you inside is a simple menu, but very, very good. The highlight is the Florentine steak which is cut to order...2 people get 1-1.5 kilo (with bone in) and 4 is... More

We made a reservation for 7:30. We arrived 7:20, with people lined uo in the street waiting to enter. There was a sign across the restaurant that it was closed until 7:30. At 7:35 or so the owner showed up. The interior was dark and all the people (40 or so) were to enter and find seats at the same... More

This restaurant has a full house at each seating. You must have a reservation! The seatings are at 7:30 and 9:30. Their specialty is steak, we had t- bones, cut with a clever and brought to your table before cooking. The steaks were huge and cooked rare. If you want medium or med rare you must send it back. Everything... More

This is an extremely popular cheap eat. Tiny room with communal dining tables mean you get to know your adjoining diners. Simple and cheap fod very well done. House wine only at bargain prices for quality. Bistecca seems a speciality. Geat for lunch.
