“Fantastic food & service - the only one we returned to twice!”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We have just finished our 2 week family holiday in Montepulciano and ate out every night as our hotel was a b&b. We discovered this little gem 3 nights ago and from the minute we arrived we were made so welcome by our lovely waiter ( I wish we had asked his name but I know he comes from Florence and had worked years ago in London ) he was honestly the most friendly, accommodating man that we met during our entire stay. We all agreed the food was the best we had ( and all the food we had eaten previous to this was good! ) we have 14 & 6 year olds and they said their pasta was the best of the trip! So much so that we returned for the last meal of our holiday this evening and the waiter remembered us and made us feel like old friends! Again the food was fantastic and we love the extra free touches on arrival.
We felt it was very good value for money in a quality restaurant and hope to return in the future. Of all the restaurants we visited this was the one that made us want to write a review. Keep up the good work and thank you for 2 fantastic meals.

“delightful”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We found this place by seeking shelter under an archway just as the rain began. Very flavorful (the duck ragu pasta was memorable), stylish, and friendly.

“This is the business!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Montepulciano is struggling this summer with visitors rarer than usual but if you manage to make it up to the heights of this charming town, a visit to this restaurant is to treat yourself. I sat inside as rain teemed down and received delightful service from three different people. Prosecco was given on arrival, an amuse bouche soon followed. My pasta for starters was excellent and left room for a fine pepper stew made from the local beef. Meanwhile a half bottle of Rosso Di Montepulciano ( love the half bottle and would enjoy seeing it in England!) slipped down - it seemed as good as a nobile. I am certain that in busier times this terrific restaurant would retain its fantastic standards.

“Best restaurant in Montepulciano”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

We spent 5 nights in Montepulciano and found this to be the best of the restaurants we tried in every way. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. Our waiter was friendly without being intrusive and was very helpful in making recommendations. We ate outside. The restaurant seating spills out on to one of the many pedestrian passageways in this charming town. As we ate our dinner outside, we watched the sun set on the Tuscan countryside. An unforgettable evening!
