Testimonials Some reviews from the web

Fantastic tuscan style family owned restaurant in heart of Montepulciano!
What a hidden gem of a restaurant. The Italian style food was the best we ever tasted and we are Italian! The staff was very friendly and generous with the wine and food portions. The wine selection and pairing was exquisite. The price was surprisingly low for food and wine of that quality. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

Lovely friendly restaurant
Very friendly family restaurant.. Food very good particularly the Pizza and the Panna Cotta. They also sell wine. Lovely views of Montepulciano from the terrace.

Wonderful Find!
We ate here twice last week. The owners, Gabriella and Giuseppe, were always warm and welcoming. The wine list was great and they can ship wine for you. The food was delicious and always fresh. The restaurant is right outside the walls of MonteP, but definitely worth the walk down. The view in spring, summer and fall on the outside patio is stunning. A wonderful find on this last trip!

Great local restaurant!
The service and menu selection was fabulous. Max suggested and served a great local Montepulciano wine. Guiseppe was our waiter. He made suggestions on the menu which were great! This restaurant is 4 minutes form the Villa Poggiano where we stayed for 6 nights. Heavenly!

Great food, lovely service
This is a lovely restaurant with a real family atmosphere just outside of Montepulciano. Great service and the traditional Tuscan food was amazing. There are beautiful views up to the town from the outside terrace. We ate here three times during our most recent visit to Italy as it was very close to Villa San Benedetto where we stayed. Would highly recommend the Montemercurio red wine! They also do a great take away pizza, highly recommended. Would definitely go back next time we are in the area.
