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.

Decided to visit this restaurant together with my wife on a recent holiday in Italy. based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor.
The quality of the food and friendly staff was as good as anywhere we had eaten during our 10 night holiday, also very good value, it was so good we went there three nights on the trot !
I had the steak a couple of times and my wife had the whole fish and another day had some huge prawns. we also tried the homemade pasta which was excellent.
Advisable to book a table based on our experience

There are lots of restaurants having similar Tuscan menus in Montepulciano so we tried this one recommended by our hotel, (Albergo Duomo). We weren't disappointed. The ravioli with sage and butter was excellent. This was followed by the Fiorentina beef cooked rare with Vino Nobile. It was very tasty. A very enjoyable meal topped off with limoncello

This place is popular so ensure you book in advance. Service good, decor good, food good, price very good. Enjoyed our meal here and would return. The pici tomato garlic pasta was simple but excellent. I had the wild boar ragu papperadelle (sp.). The pasta was good although the serve of sauce and meat was so small I couldn't taste it. I wouldn't have this dish from there again as I have had much better elsewhere.
It seemed that our serves were much smaller than the other pastas coming out which was disappointing.

We enjoyed a delicious meal here, but the service was not great. While we aren't demanding, we do want to eat eventually. We weren't the only ones waiting which was better. My beef tenderloin was excellent as were the grilled vegetables I had with it.

In Montepulciano at mid-day on a bitterly cold, wet and windy day, the rain came down in earnest and we vowed to go into the first acceptable-looking restaurant we found. Lucky for us that it turned out to be Osteria del Conte. We got a lovely welcome from our waitress. We explained that we just wanted to have one light dish, but once we had settled in, took in our surroundings: the gracious room, the friendly waiting staff, the atmosphere of lots of happy guests - almost all Italian - clearly enjoying ourselves and looked outside at the miserable weather, we decided to have a full meal. The menu was typical Tuscan fare, but everything we ate was superb. Top-class ingredients, simply cooked - the most difficult meal to do well. Antipasti and pici for starters, beef and duck for main courses, tiramisù and panna cotta for dessert - all as good as one could wish for. Excellent vino nobile di Montepulciano. We were in seventh heaven! And after chatting with the waitress at length in Italian, it turned out that she was Irish - from Co Leitrim. (I had remarked to my partner what a lovely, friendly manner she had and that you'd easily know she was Italian!). So, thanks to all concerned for a beautiful meal. If /when we return to southern Tuscany, we'll definitely re-visit Osteria del Conte.
