“Fantastic!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

GattaVecchi is an fabulous restaurant where you can eat a mix of traditional Italian food combine with a Brazilian innovative cuisine. The ambiance is really nice, the wine is part of their own production and the service is efficient. If you are planning to visit Montepulciano, you have to stop by, believe me it is worthy.

“Intimate, friendly restaurant and winery combination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

The food was really good, even after having been enjoying Tuscan food for ten days now. The boar stew was rich and tasty.

They serve their own wine; we had the Vino Nobile reserva 2004 which, frankly, was rich and tasty too!

The small restaurant has a good view over the valley, and enjoys sunset views in the early evening in August at least (it opens for dinner at 7:30 pm).

The real joy was the family-run team, who are actively involved in serving and cooking. We were the only non-Italians there last night, which suggests they enjoy local respect.

After dinner they let us wander around the wine cellars, which go deep into the mountain, below the church above.

“Amazing hospitality, views and a Etruscan tomb!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We were wandering around Montepulciano in the evening and found a nice patio with a view. The menu looked fine. We had no idea that we we're about to have one of our favourite dining experiences in Italy. We discovered that this restaurant was also a winery and had a Etruscan tomb in the basement. The wine was awesome and the food was outstanding. Very high quality and delicious. The service was super friendly and helpful. We were also surprised by the price- very reasonable. We left the restaurant and walked through the narrow streets of Montepulciano feeling like we just had one of the most amazing evenings ever.

“Great!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2012

For us, brazilians, was great to eat in a place where the chef is a brasilian woman!!
She is fantastic. The food was perfect.
They have a small menu, which is very good, because they can control the quality more carefully.

The place is amazing. Beautiful! There is an etruscan tomb in there, and a wine cellar.

One of my best meals in Italy.
