We booked this restsurant as it looked nice. Indeed the interiors are very attractive with stone walls etc... unfortunately the nice things stop there. The food was disgusting. We made a mistake to order the duck which we sent back after one mouthful trying to avoid vomiting in the plate. We then oredered some wild boar which was eadible at least. The service was as dreadful as the duck breasts. No questions asked why we sent the full duck brests back. The owner/chef/waiter (only one person seems to manage everything) was the rudest person we never met. We have eaten in 7 restaurants in montalcino. all great but this! Don't be fooled by the appearance!

Good wine and meat and cheese tray. A little expensive but they serve some of the finest wines local to the area.

You would think choosing a simple pizza supper in a restaurant in Italy would be foolproof. However, the pizza in this place was virtually inedible. The wine list had an extensive list of Brunellos but after trying to order about 8 of them and finding the restaurant did not have them my husband was invited to go and look at what they actually did have!

We wandered past this place and noticed that it was fairly busy so thought we would give it a go. Our antipasti were good - bruschetta and cold meats but our pasta dishes were a little bland. The service is what really let's this place down though. The waiters seemed to be stressed and constantly shouted at by the owner/manager. As we were leaving a pizza was taken out of the oven and had been burnt. The head waiter/manager told the guy in the kitchen to put oil on it as it was going to a foreigner anyway! Awful way to treat paying customers. Wouldn't recommend given the other wonderful places to eat in the city.

We ate here twice during our week in Montalcino. Our first visit was absolutely brilliant with some of the best food we had in Italy! Would definitely recommend the wild boar stew. I think its important here to say that there are two waiters and that experiences will vary depending on which one serves you. The younger waiter is very smiley and helpful while the older man is more off-hand and got our order wrong (he did apologise and they were very busy). Nevertheless don't let that put you off as the food is great and the atmosphere is lovely - the walls are lined with hundreds of wine bottles!
