Chef Andrea treated my wife and I to a delicious meal. Unbelievable fresh carbonara, the prosciutto with melted pecorino and shaved truffles is by itself a dish to come back for, and the steak is cooked just right. Not to mention the wine selection. Grazie, Andrea!

Located just inside old town Montepulciano. We did not eat here but stopped in and had an informal wine-tasting. I wanted to buy some wine to ship home. The young lady working was very helpful and informative with her explanations. She made the process of choosing and shipping the wines very easy. Very pleased!

This is a must try when in Montepulciano! It was hands down the best meal we had on our entire trip. If you are a foody and truly appreciate a great meal, then don't miss this! Andrea the owner was incredibly knowledgeable and hospitable. He made our experience a truly memorable journey. Order anything with truffles. You will be amazed.

This restaurant was fine, the service was OK, a bit disorganised at times as the place filled up, but there were no calamities. The food was good but in our travels round Tuscany we found many places much better so it's hard to be effusive about here.

We ate here twice during our stay and found everything to be outstanding, but most of all, Chef Andrea Bifolchi! Food and wine were amazing with great presentation - it looked almost too good to eat. And it was definitely as good as it looked! Hope to go back some day.

This restaurant has a lot lovely spot right near the main entrance gates to the old historic centre. The prices are competitive but not that cheap but the food is good quality and the terrace outside is lovely. We particularly enjoyed that you can taste the wines in the winery next door and have your favourite delivered to the table.... More
