If you want to try a real-deal bistecca all fiorentina, this is the place to go. I have eaten bistecca all fiorentina in many restaurants, but this place really prepares one of the best. It was really tender and full-flavored. It just melted in my mouth, which is a sign that the meat was high-quality, aged in the right way... More

Everything is authentic in this place: the ambiance, the owner, the clientele, and of course the food. If you order the celebrated bistecca fiorentina, you will not need much else, still we also had a fantastic melted pecorino with truffles..White wines also great everywhere in Val d'Orcia. Good value for money, too, compared to others in the region.

This is the best place to eat in Montepulciano - as long as you like (love) meat. The queue out the front at opening time gives an inkling of what is in store. The seating is on long tables where everyone sits together so you end up meeting new people from around the world. The head chef rustically chops the... More

We are an Australian couple travelling Europe and fortunately stopped in the area for 2 nights. Staying at a farmhouse our host recommended this place for dinner. We had the most beautiful evening with 2 other couples whom we shared a table with. This restaurant offers a semi long table experience. Dishes are homemade. Steak is their "thing". Cut, weighed,...

The food is always exceptional, the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, and the owners are attentive. It's a small restaurant, and reservations are a must--make them a day or two early to ensure a spot at your preferred time, and don't be late.

We were fortunate to get a table as we had no reservations. Only two seatings, 7:30 and 9:30. We had just arrived at our B&B Albergo Il Rondo and it was just about dinner time. The owner recommended Osteria Acquacheta and called in for us. When we arrived we were seated at the last four seats available. The restaurant is... More

Great restaurant, the owner makes quite a show of the orders but that's enjoyable to watch. The restaurant is known for the great Bistecca Fiorentina but all the other dishes are certainly worth trying as well. Make a reservation otherwise you'll be very likely to miss out on this restaurant. Especially on thursday till sunday. Prices are very reasonable. The... More
