On my bucket list of things to do was to go tasting Brunellos in Montalcino. I contacted Poggio Antico and they suggest a late tour and tasting followed by dinner at their restaurant. The tour was great, dinner was better. We had a tasting menu called Tuscan Fool Reimaged, and it was just that. Beautiful appertivo, a delicious risotto, magnificent... More

They have a wonderful menu. We selected one of their gourmet tasting dinners, of which they had several. A fabulous 6 dinner, including a pre dessert and dessert! And then a dessert platter. Wine selections we great and also featured wines from Poggio Antico Winery, which adjoins the restaurant. We did a wine tasting and tour at Poggio Antico prior... More

Had a wonderful lunch prior to our wine tasting. The menu was full of surprises. Our lunch was enjoyable, the staff was helpful and would highly recommend it if you are in the area.

We stopped for lunch without a reservation for a table of two. Because of the winery tour reservations on line, we were unable to make a dining reservatio online. We were told all patio tables were taken when several were open and it was not early. We sat inside in the empty dining room. That is when we should have... More

My wife and I dined here on our last day in Italy; we found it searching Trip Advisor for a restaurant near our hotel "Le Raignaie" in Montalcino. We were served by Michael who was also our most capable sommelier, and was more than accommodating in discussing the area, the wines and the food with us. The food was remarkable.... More

The meal we had at Poggio Antico, a winery just south of Montalcino, was one of the best of many great meals we had in our recent trip to Italy. Highlights were a pasta stuffed with egglant and suckling pig with an interesting sauce involving cream of cauliflower. Oddly, the waiter recommended a wine from somewhere else instead of one...

We stopped in for dinner here after doing a late tour and tasting at the Poggio Antico winery. When we saw the nearly empty dining room, we wondered if we had made a big mistake. However, we learned that most people come to this restaurant for lunch when they visit the winery. And, as it was dark by the time... More

We expected the best and it was by far the worst meal we have had in Italy, and we have been here 10 days! The food was bland at best. The salmon appetizer was ok but uninspiring, quite frankly salmon sashimi has more taste. The veal cheeks were inedible, I defy anyone to be able to swallow luke warm fat.... More

Sure, get a bistecca and local foods while visiting Tuscany--they're excellent and put you in-touch with local traditions. However, it is possible to experience modernist cuisine at Poggio Antico. Molecular gastronomy meets Tuscan tradition: that's a winning combination. The chef has access to the excellent local produce, cheeses and cured meats, and smashes expectation.

We just enjoyed having a leisurely lunch here before a tour and tasting at the winery..We both ordered the 5 course "Revisitation of the Territory"..The food was excellent..We especially enjoyed the San Gimignano saffron risotto and the Veal Cheek with Vinsanto sauce and black truffle pearl was melt in your mouth delicious. Also the Vinsanto/mascarpone dessert sprinkled with dark chocolate... More
