“Great find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2013

We ate lunch in the cafe portion one afternoon. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful. Great place to have a very relaxed lunch and hang out after to finish your beer. The Bruchetta was wonderful. And know that anything you order that has cheese will have a very generous helping!

“Great service and wine tasting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013 via mobile

My husband and I stopped in randomly after deciding last minute we wanted to see Montalcino after being in Montepulciano most of the day. We stopped in here and was greeted very pleasantly by the bartender/waiter. She let us taste 4 wines before choosing which one we wanted. She had a paper tag that she put on the stem so we wouldn't get confused. We picked a Brunello (of course!) and she brought out a bread, salami and cheese plate with it. We surprisingly weren't charged for it (not sure if this is normal). Overall great experience! Since we didn't eat a meal here I gave it a 4 rating.

“Great Authentic Italian Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

Great on those long hot nights with a superb out door area and stunning views of the fortress and down the hill. A proper cafe/bar with the right prices.

“Wine and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2012

While visiting the town of Montalcino my wife and I stopped in for lunch. We sat in their seating area across the street in the park. Wonderful views and just a great setting. Wine and traditional Tuscan sandwiches made for a nice lunch. The sandwich was so good I got another to go to enjoy later on in the day.

“wonderful history while you dine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Everyone must stop at this fortezza, wonderful history, you feel like you step back in time. After walk around the hilly town, so quaint. The wine room is beautiful with so many to choose! We had lunch on the patio, wonderful light bite to eat!
