La Grotta is outside of the walls of Montepulciano and literally across the street from the San Biagio church. This is a formal, but not stuffy restaurant - you would feel uncomfortable if you walked into the place in jeans. The menu is traditional Italian...More

Classy, stylish place with atmosphere. Service also reflecting the place. Had the menu. Overall it was good. Asked for the lamb chops to be done medium, but the were rare. Despite undercooked for my taste, it tasted good, so I did not mention the mistake....More

We went two nights in a raw and had dinner in the garden. The food is exquisite and the service is also very delicate. The owner speaks an excellent French. The prices may seem high but they aren't given the high-standard cuisine. A beautiful experience...More

This is a tricky one! Parking only outside the old wall. We were pretty lucky catching a parking lot directly at P1 which is right at the entrance to the old city. I would recommend to come early enough to enjoy some time in... More
