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 thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here, sitting outside on a lovely fall day. It's conveniently located near the piazza, behind the church, at the top of the hill. We shared a wonderfully prepared bavette pasta with local black truffles, ravioli with pecorino, and a glass of wine. The service was friendly and we only wished we had had a chance to eat dinner here and sample more dishes.

Found by accident was this very good restaurant, Osteria del Conte, behind the Piazza Grande on via San Donato. The service was very friendly and the pasta con fuhgi was excellent! Perfect for a light lunch while exploring the beautiful hill town of Montepulciano - close by is Siena.
The bills was only 72 euros for four which included a liter of wine.

We went here our first night in Montepulciano it it was outstanding. We sat outside on their beautiful patio. The prosciutto with melted pecorino cheese was ridiculously good as was the homemade pici with tomato, basil, and garlic. Would get both again every time. We also had the bruschetta and the tagliatelle with wild boar, both excellent. At the end of the night we ordered 2 cappuccinos and they only brought one by mistake. We never said anything but the waiter figured it out and the owner then came out with complementary house made grappa and lemoncello. Overall great food and dining experience.

We had chosen another restaurant for the night, but found it closed.
Buying a bottle of water from a nearby shop, we asked the owner for their recommendation, and here we were!
We went to book but by 6pm all inside seats were taken, so we settled on the terrace.
When we returned at 7.30 ish, the place was buzzing.
The food was great, the service impeccable, not least from the owners wife (who is Irish) and the atmosphere first rate.
We had the wine by the carafe, and the bill for the evening was unbelievably reasonable!
Not something you usually see!
Recommended!
