One of the finest restaurants where I've been. Delicious meals combining tradition and gourmet for an unforgettable dinner. Variazione di cinta (pig sienese) with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is strongly reccomended.

Four of us wandered into this restaurant on a rainy spring day yesterday. We ordered a fairly light lunch of pasta and sweets and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and diversity of the menu. The food was very good and the service excellent. Great Pici pasta and a quite different take on Tiramisu.

Great setting in a tucked away corner of the cobblestone streets of Montepulciano. Quality service (they put up with and assisted our butchery of the Italian language) and excellent food. The duck tagliatelle was so good, we went back for a second visit within a week. Each plate brought to the table was beautifully prepared for both the eyes and... More

Definitely on the expensive side but the food was all great. We went with the pici with burratta and bread crumbs to start and the steak Florentine and the bean salad as the main event. The steak was fantastic. The pasta was very good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very sleepy on the night I was there but I'm... More

Visiting Montepulciano for our second time and having hiked to the plaza at the top of the hill town we were interested in stopping for lunch before driving back to our central location and hotel. Found this Ristorante by chance, with the entrance down a few steps off the main Via della Cantino. Service was very nice and informal, the... More

I almost gave this place a five...4.75. The food and service was spectacular. I must say, the beef tartar was the finest I have ever had in all my life. The salt combination, the mustard sauce, holy cow, I didn't want it to end, I just wanted more of the flavors that I was tasting. The rest of the meal... More
