The food is very very good, and you don't break the bank to eat there. Get a reservation as it is limited in tables but don't miss this one!

Based on the reviews of their pizza, we were expecting better. I would have to say it was about average for the several pizzas we had in our two weeks in Tuscany.

Great place for lunch or dinner. We heard that the pizza was the best here, and we were not disappointed. Oftentimes when you travel out of the south in Italy, the pizza is disappointing. This was the case in a place we found in Sienna. However, Il Grifo does a great job. We would certainly return and recommend it to others.

Went thinking we would have pizza at this pizza place. Changed our minds once inside. Got crostini with mushrooms and grilled pork. Mushrooms okay. Pork had a nice grilled flavor but was thin and tough. Next time, if we return, I would go with the pizza which looked very good. Service was average.

While holidaying again in Montalcino we ate here twice - once on our own and once with a group of 11. Both times were excellent. Great pizzas, excellent wine. Great Brunello selection. Very friendly service and good quality food. Highly recommended especially for the pizza bianco with potato and rosemary and for the various calzone. The only small gripe is that on previous occasions they've come round with complementary glasses of limoncello and that didn't happen this time which was a pity - we did see others being favoured so didn't quite understand why we were missing out.
