We found this restaurant via the tourism information in Montepulciano to do a Tuscan cooking class during our stay. Although there was a 2 person minimum (my husband declined), the restaurant were happy to continue with the class. Luckily, another couple decided to join. We had a wonderful class with Niccolo, head chef and his assistant Erica.

Niccolo's family also have a vineyard and olive grove in Montepulciano - we took an impromptu visit and it was amazing. They make their own wine, olive oil and salami and use vegies from their garden in the restaurant.

We all came back for dinner that night and were treated to a very special bistecca fiorentina. We had the salami straight from his cellar, drank wine from his vineyard and ate a very big dinner, served to us personally by Niccolo.

We returned to buy olive oil and wine the next day to bring home. Very friendly staff, free tastings and delicious produce.

Along with our friends, we had a quite decent lunch. Afterwards, we sipped some wine and tried the salami in the attached store, and I asked about the large jugs of house wine. A taste convinced me that it was a quite decent young wine. Five liters cost 15 Euros and constituted one of the great bargains of our trip.

We ate in this restaurant three times in a one week stay in Montepulciano. All the restaurants we used in the town were very good, but this one had the added advantage of parking outside which was free after 8pm. As the restaurant is on the mezzanine floor it could get very hot, but tables situated near the fans were comfortable, and the restaurant was never full. The wine on offer was the best we tasted in Tuscany and the Montepulciano Apostoli there was incredible value at only 9 euro a bottle. The staff were very young but also very attentive and nothing was enough trouble. The menu was very limited but no more so than other restaurants in town. Although there were no contorni shown on the menu a range was available on request. On our third visit we were offered a free aperitif and a discount was given on the bill.
