Description: Montepulciano is a magic city which offers its visitors unforgettable memories. A steep, winding road will lead you to a medieval hill town with a wonderful view over the surrounding valley. L’Osteria del Conte is situated in one of the town centre’s main streets, near the renowned Sanctuary of San Biagio and ontepulciano’s Fortress. After several years of experience in enogastronomy and catering, Lorena together with her son, Paolo, decided to open this cosy little restaurant in Montepulciano, where you will have the possibility of tasting the genuine, delicious dishes offered by the Sienese cuisine.

We enjoyed this place for lunch on our 2 nd day in Montepuciano.The service was excellent and she spoke in English as well. The fresh catch of the day on a Friday through Sunday is the best way to go if you like fish. I had the sea bass that was tasty, it really did not need any seasoning however I am a fan of olive oil. Also, for primi had the percurino cheese ravioli. My husband had the boar meat spaghetti and we shared a side of roasted potatoes. Bon appetio. It was a comforting experience to sit with the locals and some tourists from everywhere. Because it is Sunday there were more locals here, a great sign also that this is a great choice for lunch. The dolce had an excellent selection, we chose the tiramisu...creamy, marscopone and chocolate. Yummy.

My wife and i are on our honeymoon, and we are traveling through France and Italy. We have been searching for the right type of restaurant...warm and friendly atmosphere...delicious food...great wine...reasonable prices. Osteria del conte satisfied all of our requirements and more. Both my wife and i agree that this was the best meal we have had thus far, and that includes dining in Paris, Venice and Florence. We quite literally cleared every plate set in front of us. The pici pasta with duck sauce was amazing, the steak was excellent, and the dessert (i forget the name, but is was a slice of a custard like pie) was delicious with the cappucini. During the day we will continue to explore montepulciano and the surrounding towns, but we will be back for dinner tomorrow!

The pasta with porcini mushrooms was a trip favorite for my husband and I liked the chickpea (ceci) soup as well as the ravioli with sage and butter. Everything was terrific.

My wife and I ate here twice during our stay in Montepulciano. The food was great and the owner, Lorena, and her son were absolutely lovely. They made us feel right at home. Our waiter, Emma, was from Ireland and was lovely in helping us choose wine, pastas, and desserts. Both meals were excellent, with a nice wine list and a variety of Tuscan dishes that would satisfy any palate. In addition, the atmosphere was lovely, with local art on the walls and warm colors to go with the great personalities of the owners and staff. This is a great place and certainly made our stay even more memorable. We loved it.
