We ate a month's worth of great dinners across five countries, and my girlfriend and I agree this was our absolute #1. Make sure they can seat you in the back terrace, which is beautiful and so quaint. Every item we got was of superb quality. Don't think you can go wrong with anything but the vegetable tagliatelle and rabbit salad were amazing.

Please eat here.

Let me start by saying that my "star rating" is very strict when it comes to places to eat in the Montepulciano area as each place was excellent. In order to get 5 starts from a reviewer like me you have to have been a truly memorable, fantastically delicious establishment that made our dining experience extremely enjoyable and unforgettable. La Grotta was extremely good as the staff was professional and served well. The food was really tasty and a perfect glimpse of what to expect throughout our days in Tuscany. The price was a little high for our liking but we were on vacation...I have attached pictures of our meals. The inside is immaculate and a nice place for a special occasion.

Food might be good but the lack of kindness and sensibility of the staff makes this place a remarkable example of rudeness! Avoid it if you are looking for a friendly atmosphere and if you believe in human kindness!!

A combination of great, excellent food, a wine cellar that is second to none, impeccable and friendly service in a lush garden = definitely the No 1 choice in Montepulciano!

This is a very good restaurant, charming knowledgable staff, good atmosphere, garden, consistently good food, great selection of wines by the glass and not expensive for the quality. Steak is steak, but theirs is the best I've ever eaten, fabulous pasta and the mascarpone mousse with coffee ice cream whilst simple is utterly, lusciously wonderful. I want to live next door to La Grotta.
