We found out about this restaurant from Fodor's as well as Tenuta Valdipiatta winery in Montepulciano which we toured. We made a reservation and were blown away by the welcoming attitude of the staff, the lovely table and environment, but most of all the delicious food and wine! One of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The prices were a good value considering the quality of the experience.

Near the end of our trip to Tuscany, we decided to find a restaurant featuring more than pizza. La Grotta is located behind the Church at the base of the hilltown of Montepulciano. The setting was beautiful, the tables inside were immaculately set, and there was a beautiful garden right outside.

The food and the service were excellent; only local and fresh items, explained and served by a very knowledgeable staff.

We enjoyed an excellent meal and a very relaxing dining experience.

My husband and I, along with another couple, decided to go outside the walls of Montepulciano for lunch one day. Giacomo, the proprietor of Politian Apartments, recommended this restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. Great wine selection, wonderful service, beautiful ambiance but above all the food. Some of the standouts were the pecorino cheese flan, the tuscan croutons with duck liver with a vin santo sauce, tuscan steak with beans and my personal favorite, the home made pasta with rabbit that I still think about today. I believe this truly is a restaurant not to be missed. Buon appetito!!!

La Grotta is a terrific place to eat, charming service, a pretty terrace to eat and a fine reasonable wine list. I had the most delicious steak I've eaten anywhere in the world followed by a fantastic mascarpone mousse, it was an outstanding simple clever cooking. We can't wait to return in the summer and will ensure we book at least two nights.

Went here the first night and did the tasting menu, and it was so amazing we decided to come back on our last night for the Florentine steak! Nice place that takes reservations, great wine selection (obviously), and the food was fantastic. Have recommended this restaurant to several friends, especially those who also took our recommendation of staying at the villa down the street we stayed at!
