This is the bet place in Montalcino where you can have a great bottle of Brunello with an amazing view. The food is not exciting but does the job, you won't be disappointed. The restaurant is modern and the wine selection is out of this world.We wanted to try a top Brunello and he recommended a 2001 Brunello "tenuta la Fuga" called "le due sorelle"... Great bottle a t a good price considering that is a 12 years old Barolo (100euro)... The restaurant is at walking distance from the city centre. You can also try as a Top option the "Castello Banfi" but is 30min drive from Montalcino...:-(

Stopped off here by chance and were we not disappointed!
It has a fantastic view over the countryside and we had a wonderful, leisurely, lunch with fantastic food and excellent wines!
The service was great and the food simply superb. We went for the wine tasting option and weren't disappointed by the quality or selection on offer - so much so we bought 2 of the ones offered!
Love this hillside town and will certainly go back to the Osticcio!
Try it out, you won't be disappointed!

We have both lunch and dinner here and feel it is the choice for Montalcino. The food and wine compliment and the staff is very helpful and friendly, for us the best restaurant in Montalcino and after 10+ years of visiting we think it a realistic comment. Go for the food, stay for the view

What can I say disorganised totally
This team of two have no idea how to run a restaurant
To start white wine not cold need to wait to be chilled in a ice bucket at lest 25 minutes he could have said have another one
This one is not in the fridge secon waited at leat 25 minute for a mozzarella cut in 4 parts and few slices of tomato maybe one chef !!!!!!
Risotto with zafferano and some kind of starcchino cheese the rice was white no zafferano tasteless
None of the two ever came to pour the wine at any time and never notice that I left 3 quarter of the risotto
I m not sure if the should be running a so call restaurant but they charge very expensive restaurant price
But the fail to deliver never to return here

Had a lovely, relaxed lunch here with my (lovely and relaxed) wife. Wine tasting option worked great with the delicious food. The view from our window seat didn't hurt either! We liked it so much we came back the next night with the rest of the family. No spectacular views at night, but the same wonderful experience. The classic Tuscan food was again excellent. The owner was very welcoming and his wait staff was truly exceptional. In particular, the waitress we had at lunch gave a very informative and enthusiastic description of the local wines (mostly Brunellos, Rossos) that made our lunch even more enjoyable. If you are in the Montalcino area, you will enjoy Osticcio!
