The food was not good, both pasta dishes we had were not hot enough and too soft, they might have been pre-cooked and re-heated. The close by restaurant gattavecchi is a much better option. The service is very good.

I visited Osteria del Conte recently during a trip to Montepulciano with my mother and husband. We did not have a reservation, but arrived just as they opened, and we were seated immediately. The staff was incredibly warm and friendly. The wine list is very good, but the food was spectacular. They let us take our time and did not... More

We found Osteria del Conte on TA before our trip and it was a restaurant that we put on our list to consider. When the owner of our hotel also heartily recommended it without asking, we decided to go. Reservations are a must - we went on a Thursday night and the restaurant remained crowded. The restaurant, which is located... More

Our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Ostria del Conte after attending Sunday mass. We didn't have a reservation but were able to get an outdoor table. It was a sunny and hot afternoon, the staff was very helpful in adjusting the tables and the umbrella so that we'd all be in the shade and comfortable. The food... More

Had dinner with friends one evening. We shared 4 different pastas all of which were excellent. We had a platter of meats, cheeses and fruit which was very good as was the insalata caprese. The seating is a little tight, otherwise a great place per la cena.

We selected this restaurant based on location and the very positive TripAdvisor reviews. Big mistake! Although service was ultra efficient on a Saturday night all the tables were taken, almost all with Americans, the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Wine selection was quite limited (they are located right next door to Contucci and promote their labels.) Tagliatelle... More

Wanted a good home style dinner our last night in town after one week. Saved del Conte for last due to its reputation as a family place. Food was delightful. Melon and ham was sweet and a great start. Pasta was flavorful but if you are a sauce person, ask for more sauce. Pork chop was BBQ and great. Wines... More

We were introduced to Vino Nobile by our waitress who did not want to over sell us. The food and service were good. 3 of us had the Tuscan Steak. It was good -- but the meat was a bit tough and over cooked. We had a true Florentine Steak earlier in Florence that was perfect. This was not on... More
