We sat outside and had three cafe latte's and enjoyed both the coffee and the friendly owner who provided an easy going personality. The cafe is situated close to the main piazza and offered drinks and some simple food choices.

We entered just by chance when it started to rain heavily. After some tasty bruschettas we decided to try their pizzas and it was a really good decision.

There are so many good places in Montepulciano, so just don't spoil your chance to have good food somewhere else! Their Crostoni are made with very unauthentic industrial bread, not what you expect from Tuscany. They said Crostone with Pecorino and truffle, which sounded great although it was not at all.

We had lunch there al fresco as a family with small children. High chairs are available. We had pizza which had the thin crust we love and was very tasty. Service is matter of fact and prompt. The bathroom was not so nice (which seems nothing special for Italy). The bill for 4 pizzas, a (nice albeit quite small) glass... More

We (4 of us) were visiting Montepulciano whilst staying locally. We stopped here for lunch, eating al fresco. The service was prompt, helpful and friendly. The food was good and the bill reasonable. Recommended for lunch.

Went there looking for a quick pizza and a drink for lunch and got a quick pizza and a drink. Service was nothing to write home about and neither was the food but pricing was about right for this type of place. For service was ultra fast leading us to suspect that the pizza bases are pre-made and ask they... More

We ate here because we arrived during siesta hours and all the local restaurants were closed. The menu isn't expensive but the food was aweful. The pasta is cheap pasta with canned sauce for 7 euros. Its really not worth it, have a drink if you like but the food is best to be avoided.
