Located slightly off of the Piazza Grande, facing the Duomo, this is an unpretentious restaurant. Not big, but there are a few tables outside -- ideal for pleasant dining when weather permits. Nothing fancy or exceptional, but good food, well prepared. Local Tuscan cuisine. Excellent service.

When we bought a linen tablecloth from a local material shop in Montepulciano, we asked for a lunch recommendation and were recommended Al Quattro Ventri in the Piazza Grande. Great choice. Friendly welcome and quickly offered a table inside although we did not have reservations. Ostensibly, a pretty basic restaurant but with some Italian style: linen tablecloth and napkins. We wanted something simple and not too heavy: we opted for 4 different primi pasta dishes from the al la carte and special menus; lasagna, tagliatelli con ragu, pasta staccioli, and tagliatelli con funghi - and we shared a mixed salad. We were not disappointed. Simple Tuscan fare, well cooked, tasty and served efficiently by the restaurants friendly waters, many of whom also speak English. Great location, just across the piazza from wine tasting at Poliziano and Cantucci. Will we return? Absolutely.

My husband and I had our first meal in Montepulciano here and our biggest regret of our time in Italy was not going back. We had the homemade pesto and the gorgonzola gnocchi which were both absolutely delicious.Sitting outside in the lovely weather right at the piazza grande was perfect. Service was great. We would definitely recommend while visiting Montepulciano!

Of all the places in the region serving local fare, this place had the best food. It is not fancy or pretentious, just great at what they do. They have a few home made pastas. Service was great. Nice wines. Inside the restaurant, the atmosphere is pretty tame, but outside you would be sitting on the Piazza Grande with the Duomo etc. Would recommend highly.
