Located at one of the corners of Piazza Grande, just in front of the duomo, the restaurant "Ai Quattro Venti" offers indoor and outdoor tables, simple but refined decor (the father of the owners has a lovely antiques shop on the corso), classic Tuscan food at its best: ribollita (soup), fegatini (pork livers with laurel), Fiorentina (T-bone steaks), verdure grillate (grilled vegetables), etc., an excellent wine list of Tuscan wines (Nobile, Brunello, etc.), a friendly and efficient servive. Excellent value for money (about €40 per person, wine included). I have eaten there maybe 20 times, for lunch or supper, alone, with my wife, or with groups of friends. Limited seating (about 30), so it is good idea to book ahead.

Great location near the Duomo. The rabbit was wonderful as well as the pasta with mushrooms. The wine was great and grilled veggies perfect, not too done. I'd go back for more rabbit tomorrow but they are closed.
Truly yours,

The town of Montepulciano is littered with good restaurants, so it takes some real effort to stand out among the competition. Ai Quattro Venti does stand out in a friendly, competent, delicious, unassuming way. Nice, energetic and youthful staff backed up by a great kitchen equal flavourful roast duck, succulent roast pork, fresh and crispy salads, local Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, local tomatoes, and local cheeses. The pasta is cooked perfectly al dente and the sauces are light and sumptuous. Made-on-the-premises tiramisu tops it all off (with a cold limoncello just for good measure). The specials change quite often. One of my travel mates had the minestrone soup and loved it. The restaurant does everything quite well, but the standouts I've mentioned in this review may be the best you'll ever want. Delicious and a great way to top off any day in historic Montepulciano.

Stopped here for lunch while spending a full day in Montepulciano. Wife had rabbit and I had the duck. Wonderful food a reasonable prices. Service was attentive and friendly. Is located on the main piazza. Being a cold day, dined inside, but there is outside seating as well.
