This was a truly unique experience--our hosts recommended our group of six order two steaks--more than two pounds. We could see the meat being cut toward the back of the restaurant. The room was very small but the place is booming and reservations are a must! Gotta love a place where the bill is written on your table

1. Be sure you have a reservation 2. Read about "how it works" 3. Enjoy a fun night and great food We booked ahead for the 7:30 seating and joined the crowd around the door just before they opened. They have family style dining with 2 long tables and they seat you in row as you enter. You each have... More

A wonderful Osteria that is as fun as it is delicious. Part culinary experience, part theatrical, always busy and fun. Not only will you be satisifed with the meal, but you will likely always meet new friends as well. Family style seating means you are always just inches (cms) away from the next table, more than likely total strangers once... More

We went based on tripadvisor, got there when they opened at 12:30 (already a bunch of people waiting) and got our spot. Seating is all together, so we where between some italian couple and some americans and it was great. Could meet each other, chat and it was great. Good was perfect and very reasonably priced. Just go

Following the advice of my brother who had been to this place we went and it was everything we expected and more. The steak was amazing and the sides...great! The owner brings the steak to your table before it is grilled and then what comes off the grill is something that rivals any of the worlds great steak houses. Reservations... More

We have been there for lunch and it was simply amazing! Keep in mind for lunch and dinner there are only two times you can book a table. And please, do book a table (at least during high season) cause this place is very popular. This restaurant is like how you would imagine a grand Italian having dinner together. People... More

I was hesitant to visit this restaurant b/c of how popular it is with tourists, but decided to try it anyway. I'm glad I did - the truffle pasta, steak Florentine, and everything else we had was very delicious! The restaurant is on the most adorable street in Montepulciano and it's also very cute inside. They were also very accommodating... More

Went to this place w/o a reservation and were quite lucky to still be seated. Place has long tables, cosy atmosphere, not the kind of romantic restaurant though. Beef was presented raw at the table by the owner, cooked to perfection. Sides were also good and reasonably priced. Starter (cheese w/ truffle) was excellent - so was the house wine.... More

Saw a line outside and booked for the day after. The place is full and quite loud, and we sat with two other couples. If you don't mind the noise and company - this is a must. Amazing dishes, low prices and quick service. Both of us don't eat tomatos and the waitress helped us with good English and even... More
