“Warm and friendly Service!”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

My wife and I visited this establishment seeking to try some of the local cuisine that was highlighted in previous reviews. However, as mentioned in other recent reviews, the kitchen is temporarily closed due to Laura's illness. That said, Manual treated us to the best winetasting of any place in Montepulciano or Montelcino and demonstrated his considerable knowledge of the local wines including the best vintages. In additon, he did serve up very appetizing meat and cheese dishes. I highly recommend visiting this place before purchasing any wines from the local wineries to try a wide assortment and even purchase bottles directly from Manual.

“Wonderful couple”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

We arrived too late to eat here but decided to try some of the excellent wines and were made so welcome by the lovely Manuel and Laura who were so warm and friendly offering wines and information late into the evening, so friendly and heart warming.
Unfortunately we were heading on to Bologna the next day so we never got to eat here but another time, God willing.

“Fantastic surprise”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 via mobile

We weren't planning to visit, but Tripadvisor suggested it when were passing by on a weekday early afternoon, early in the season. We were received with an apology that the kitchen was closed due to his wife being sick, but nevertheless, we had a great meal (crostinis, prosciutto, sausages, cheeses etc.) accompanying what developed in to a wine tasting. What a great guy. Very passionate, competent (and very patient when I tried to keep up with all the great info he was sharing). We are looking very much forward to return, next time when we are in the area and will recommend anybody to visit

“A wonderful long-lunch”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

Our long-lunch at the Gambe di Gatto was one of the most memorable meals we've ever had. Our hosts Manuel and Laura clearly loved their food, their wine, their selection of olive oils, and wanted to share their passion with us. They had no problem preparing vegetarian versions of dished on the menu, or child-friendly versions. Manuel kept us entertained for hours with his stories about Montepulciano, his farm, and Tuscan life. I wish I could give this place a seven star rating.

“Simply the Best”
Reviewed 18 December 2012

This is by far one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in. The food, the proprietors Manuel and Laura), the wine and the ambience, are all five star quality. Laura does the cooking and Manuel is out front. It is a three hour experience that one will never forget. If you find yourself in Montepulciano make a reservation and take this in. You will not regret one minute of the "event"
