Service was good and the atmosphere is very casual and not crowded. The tagliatelle with sausage was cooked well and flavorful, but the pomodoro pici lacked fresh flavor - kind of reminded me of a canned red sauce. The cut of the steak was very...More

We got a table late in the evening and we're amazed by the speed, the friendliness and the taste. So all in all perfect. Prices are a bit high, but I guess the level is the same in whole Montepulciano.

We enjoyed a light lunch here sitting outside and enjoying the normal activity of the piazza at lunchtime. The lasagne was one of the best my husband had ever had. Easy to spend time here relaxing over a meal and drink.
