Had antipasto to share before I had the carbonara and wifey had naked ravioli which was just superb, would gladly go back and order same again! Had recommended house red wine, also great.

Unfortunately the kitchen of this restaurant was a disappointment. A couple of years ago you could enjoy the foood, but this summer bistecca with truffle was not good, the meet was swimming in a creamy sauce, pici al tartufo had no tartufo taste and ravioli cacio e pepe was a climpy sauce of cheese. The waitress was very helpful and... More

Try the chicken and grilled veggies. Delicious!! It wasn't crowded and parking was easy. Friendly staff, too. Nice place to go when you don't feel like fighting the crowds or parking of the city center.

Cool location for dinner -tables are on a mezzanine above the wine store. Family of 4 with kids ages 9 and 11. We had Tuscan steak, pasta with wild boar ragu and pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil. All were great. House red (Pulciano Rossa) was very good. We browsed the wine store while waiting for our dinner. I would... More

On a recent trip, we parked nearby and, figuring this was a city, wandered in to this retsaurant/wine shop to do some tasting. We were met by a very friendly girl who spoke good English, and offered us free tastings of not only wine, but cheeses, sausage, and breads as well. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but ended up...

Having parked our car outside, having wrongly thought we had made the centre of town, we stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant in the pouring rain and proceeded to nibble our way around the tasters of salami etc from their shop which was enough to tempt us to stay. And we were not disappointed. The food was delicious. We... More

I was here with my girlfriend at lunch time, during a week-end in Val di Chiana. For sure the best restaurant we visited and the best location as well. In fact, just entered, you will find at ground floor a big counter whereby you can taste great part of the Tuscan gastronomy with tables surrounded by huge barrels filled with... More

A short 1/4 mile from Centro in Montepulciano is the La Corte Medicea. It is a 'must' place to eat. First the restaurant has free tastings of honey, jams, salami. The interior has huge vino barrels and the house wine (which can be purchased in bulk) is Vino Nobile Montepulciano. It is the best house wine I have had in... More

Cooking class with Niccolo was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Montepulciano. His knowledge, skill and obvious passion for great food enabled him to engage both my wife's and my widely different culinary abilities. (All right, I'll be honest - I chopped the gnocchi and took pictures - but I had a great time and learned a... More
