We visited this restaurant when most others were closed. We took a seat outside & a waiter offered us a table inside, saying it was very beautiful. The view of the Tuscan countryside was nothig short of spectacular! Our food & service was fabulous. The...ravioli with ricotta & spinach amazing! The owner made a point of visiting each table to talk to (& entertain) the diners. A great experience.More

We stumbled across this restaurant on a two day trip to Montepulciano. We had a very charming evening and had a great experience largely due to our cheery and ebullient host Pierre. The atmosphere and decor is very original and I’m sure has much to...do with the restaurant being in the family for over 120 years. For starters we shared a very generous mixed plate of meat and cheese, all local and good quality. We all had various past dishes which weee excellent, full of flavour, freshly made and generous portions. We travelled with our elderly parents who were very well cared for and made to feel special. Thank you for a wonderful full evening.More

Great way to finish off our time in Montepulciano. Tucked away just off the main street it was a real gem of a find for us. The interior is something you have to see and we were fortunate enough to be able to talk to...the very welcoming owners. Food was amazing! Best spaghetti vongole I have had and view’s spectacular out the back veranda. Very very happy we found this spot as a great memory!More

Very rude. We found it in trip advisor, and his first word was no pizza, without even ask. He was rude, without even ask what we want

What a super spot. A little off the beaten track but unmissable. Beautiful views from an elevated vantage, fabulous food that all of us - even picky teens - enjoyed and a charming, helpful, informative crew. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I’ve been coming to your restaurant from Rome every year just for the great service and food and view. Unfortunately today my experience has been horrible. All of your staff are Indian and can’t speak English or Italian or any European language. Seriously that’s horrible....This isn’t McDonalds but it’s McDonalds levels of service. But even worse we asked for a fish with no lactose because of a lactose intolerance and yet it had butter. And then I ordered the zuppa etruschi and it had a long black hair in it. We called your ignorant staff and they took away the soup. I assumed they were getting me a new one. They never came back at all. And then you had the ball to tell my friend that she was a bad person for complaining about the butter in the fish and then you had even more ball to tell me that the hair wasn’t from your staff and that it was from me! My hair is short and blonde, not 6 inch long black curly hairs. I’m done with your restaurant and will never return and for all those people I’ve recommended to come to your restaurant I’m now going to tell them to stay away! Thank you for the worst dining experience in a very long time.More

WOW- How lucky were we to stumble across this fabulous restaurant. Pierre and his crew made it feel like a 5-star dining experience. They served the largest and freshest salad, exquisitely roasted vegetables, amazing local pici pasta with wild boar, incredible bruschetta, fine wine and...the best cappuccino ever!!! Our lunch lasted over 2 hours and they even had Bourbon for one of guests. One of Pierre's specialties is his cappuccino. Be sure to order it as the ladies said it was the best cappuccino they've ever had. If you’re in Montepulciano you don’t want to miss out on eating here.More

Our interaction with the owner lasted approximately 30 seconds. We approached looking for a table with a view at lunchtime. The owner immediately begin a rant lecturing us that it was not a museum but a restaurant. We neither understood or cared to discuss the...matter due to the rude and aggressive owner. We turned and walked away. He followed us outside shouting in the street. My wife was disturbed by the severity of his aggression. In hindsight I wonder if he was drunk or otherwise intoxicated as I can find no other explanation for such bizarre behaviour of an owner of a restaurant. Sir. Thank you for spoiling an otherwise relaxed and beautiful day. Please don’t allow an individual like this to be rewarded by such intimidating behaviour.

In a covered area off the main street of Montepulciano, this restaurant has a number of pluses and minuses. Outside it looks somewhat like a pizza joint, but inside is a totally different story. The setting has the feel of the 1930s with a pleasant...somewhat cluttered elegance. While others complained of slow service, we found the service to be adequately attentive. The wine list was disappointing; we noted that the prices, especially of the reds were generally double what we pay at other local restaurants. While not a large menu, it has interesting selections and not always the standard tourist fare. Our meal was tasty with decent portions. The entree prices were slightly higher than some other restaurants in Montepulciano, but different selections and the taste made the price worth it. Of note was the music playing in that it was a selection of Italian singers, seemingly of the 30s era, and thankfully not the standard disco and 80s fare that so many restaurants in Montepulciano play. We can recommend it for the food and ambience, but not for the wine list.More

This restaurant is a good choice if you’re looking for good food, a nice ambience and some entertainment by the singing host, who small talkes with every client in his italian charme. Great. The food is delicious, espacially the typical pasta called pici. Also the...tagliatta with tuscan bacon was amazing and all this paired with a good Montepulciona wine. Great experience.More

Very disappointing restaurant. The service is very poor, the waiter forgot my order, so my husband and I did not eat in the same time. The quality of the food was also very disappointing, basic and super oily. For the same price we could get...much better standard elsewhere. Then, the sommelier recommended a pricy wine bottle and announced us 5 years in a barrel. This was actually wrong. We realised that it was only 18months after reading at the wine label (wine was already opened ..). On top of that, the temperature of the wine was not good, too hot, a proof of bad storage conservation. Last but not least, we paid the full price, they did not even offer us a small reduction to compensate.More
