Description: The Osteria ACQUACHETA, open for over 25 years, has retained the characteristics of the old Tuscan taverns. The kitchen, sharing tables, one glass for water and wine, and not least an authentic welcome and true, typically Tuscan, make it a local flavor ... you feel at home ... Managers, CHIARA and GIULIO, have maintained intact over the years the tradition of pasta, bread, cakes and homemade preserves to which are added succulent steaks cooked Florentine embers of wood. Local, small and very popular, is located in the upper part of the old town, a few steps from the main square.

Our B&b owner Giuseppe already warned us of the normally long cue for dinner at Giullio's Osteria but the wait was well worth it: the best Fiorentina steak ever! And good value!

There is no way that you come here without booking because this place is always full! Usually you will have to share a table with other people, but I felt that that was part of the fun. The atmosphere was loud and fun but none of that compared to the food. They bring the T-bone steak to your table to check if you're happy with the size. The T-bone was cooked beautiful and the desserts were delicious.

Outstanding food. The best Fiorentina I have had in my three years living in Italy. Unlabelled house wine at €12 a litre is fantastic value. Reservations are essential .... do not miss.

Few places in Europe are know for excellent quality and properly cooked steaks but the Florentines in Tuscany have mastered the art (pardon the pun). After mentioning a plan to spend a day of Brunello wine tasting around Montelcino, The Osteria Acquacheta in Montepulciano was recommended to us by our Agriturismo hosts in Umbria. So we made a reservation for the early dinner seating (they have 2 seatings - 7:30PM and 9:30PM) and found the experience to be an excellent finish to our day. The host is very "gregarious" but friendly and caring. The food was very good from pasta to the steak and reasonably priced. Minimum size steak (all T-Bone) is approx. 1 Kilogram, yes KILO !! chopped in your presence in the restaurant and presented for your acceptance prior to cooking. You can share this of course. We were 3 adults and asked for the 1 Kg steak, the owner presented us with a 1.2 Kg but said we should take a larger 1.6 Kg - 2 KG steak for 3. We instead stayed with the 1.2 Kg which was delicious but in the end we had to agree with the host, we should have had a larger size. By the way, all steaks come rare to medium rare. We are looking forward to return visit at which time we will take the owners advise on steak size.
