“We love going there every time we come to Montepulciano”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

We love Montepulciano and at least once or twice a year if we can, we go there and we book a table at Cantina Gattavecchi. We discovered it last 2012, we went there for my husband's birthday in October and this is now the fourth time we eat by them.
We really enjoy the full mixed little bruschetta called IL TAGLIERE FANTASIA DI LILIAN for 2 people and we usually taste the 3 selection of their Nobile di Montepulciano wines.
This time, precisely last saturday, we also took two first dishes one PICI AL CINGHIALE for me and one TAGLIATELLE AL VINO NOBILE CON CACIO E PEPE for my husband. they were extremely delicious and very full dishes, so that after the big tagliere and the hand made pasta we weren't able to taste anything else. So that we will pick up the chance to go one more time and taste the BUDINO AL PECORINO, a sweet made by pecorino cheese.
We think that the quality of raw materials is very high and the cost is very low with respect to this.
All people who work there and the owners are wonderful and kind, they always let us stay there with our dog Zorro, even now that is not so little.. We warmly suggest to anyone to prove this special experience during the visit of Montepulciano. Unfortunately I didn't download updated pictures yet because I am on holiday right now but I can publish photographs referred to our previous experiences.

“Good lunch”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Good food, good wine. Loved the homemade pasta. Also, they had several wines to taste. We ended up with a bottle of the Rosso, which was very good.

This restaurant is part of the Gattavecchi family winery. It is one of three wineries located inside the old city. The food is very authentic and well made. The wines are all made by the Gattavecchi family.

“Lovely place for lunch”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

First of all if you are going to eat here, you must seriously consider ordering "Lillian's Delight" bruschetta platter. Wow. It is almost a meal all by itself. It was our favorite part of the meal. We followed that with very good gnocchi with meat sauce and pici with cinghale ragu. The pici had large, delicious chunks of cinghale in it. Secondi were the roasted rabbit and the tagliata of beef. For contorni, we ordered the roasted patate and they were excellent . Service was friendly and perfectly paced.I love its location away from the main part of town. We would go back again for sure.
