We were looking for a nice restaurant and we found it. The waiters were kind and tried to provide the proper service. The food was traditional and very good.

After a brutally long trip, we arrived at our room in Montalcino. We asked Emmanuela, who was showing us to our apartment at I'll Giglio, if there was a place to get a quick pizza, as we were on our last legs. She told us about Il Grifo. We noticed several locals coming up the street from there with pizza... More

Went to Il Grifo in Montalcino hoping for a nice authentic Italian dinner to celebrate our honeymoon. The food was good but the tall bearded dark haired waiter tried to scam us. He said we needed to pay "part" of the bill in cash. We said sorry we don't have cash and he ran our credit card then said credit... More

We stopped to have a little bite and ordered a pizza. One of the best I have ever had in Italy or elsewhere. Decor is nothing special but that pizza... Oh that pizza...

I am spending one night in montalcino and was lucky enough to have been told about this place by a local person while I was walking to another restaurant where I had a previous reservation. It was a carpei Deim moment and we walked into il grifo instead. The vegetable appetizer was fried Japanese style and was. Delicious. A steak... More

Ate here twice during our stay in Montalcino and enjoyed both meals. I have severe dietary restrictions which they catered for with no issue at all. The food was fresh and menu extensive. Service was always with a smile and it appeared to be constantly busy. Worth a visit.

We had gnochi (Very good!) and pince (good, but not that special). Price is ok. Wines are cheap. I recommend arriving a little earlier, maybe around 19:30 because the place can get a little crowded.

Thank Takeo K
