We spent 1 night in Montepulicano after concluding our self-guided walking tour of the Val d'Orcia. Our bed & breakfast recommended this spot. We can't say that we were overwhelmed. Our young server was very attentive to our requests, providing us with a high level of service. However, our food just wasn't that great. We were near the end of our holiday and I hadn't had lasagna in Italy. It doesn't seem to be on that many menus. Anyway I thought I'd give it a try. It was seriously lacking in flavour. Some tomato basil sauce would have given it a nice boost. My wife's meal wasn't memorable. Yes, we had an enjoyable evening but the food left us lukewarm.

Had a wonderful lunch in this great little trattoria on the main piazza in this beautiful little hill town in Tuscany!
It's family run and it shows as the service is excellent throughout.
They have a great menu and good wine list to suit all palates and pockets.
After a good selection of Tuscan antipasti I had lovely lamb and my wife had great pasta - good sized portions and deliciously cooked!
There are several ristorantes to choose from in this lovely little town, but can certainly recommend this one!
Would certainly go back again!
Try it out, you won't be disappointed!

We stayed at Villa Poggiano in Montepulciano and the owner highly recommended Al Quattro Venti.
We were a group of 8 and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the fabulous, attentive and friendly service.
It was definitely the best dinner we had in Montepulciano!
The minestrone soup was bursting with flavour, the pastas cooked to pefection and the deserts simply exquisite!
I had the mille fleur which was out of this world!! Others had the chocolate mousse and tiramisu which they said was the best they ever had!
This restaurant is a must if visiting Montepulciano!

The food is all homemade, and the servers are very friendly. Our hotel recommended we eat here, and we were not disappointed. Highly recommend!
