Lovely view, a cool and shady terrace away from all the busy touristy area, overlooking the hills at the back of the city. Try the wine sampler - 3 of their nicest reds. Bruschetta sharing plate and mixed cheese/meat platter was yummy. Kids loved the meat pici. Perfect atmosphere. Cool and rejuvenating on a hot day.

Although we already come approx. 15 years in Montepulciano, this summer it was our first visit at Gattavecchi. What a shame we did not visit it before!! Everything great!!! The food, the atmosphere, the staff, the wine! For the coming 15 years, we know where to go.....!

Wine was fantastic, service was good, food was really good. We went back for a second visit because the food was so good. Roast pork and wild boar ragu were my favourites. Highly recommended if you appreciate good, Italian food. Only open at lunchtime

According to Google, Cantina Gattavechia was closed, but when we called we were invited to come over. We arrived and were greeted with "mi casa, su casa". You can always tell a wine maker because their priority is always to get you as passionate about their wines as they are. We did a vertical tasting of the 2006/7/8, and some... More

Tasty, good service, friendly and reasonably priced. My steak was cooked perfectly with rosemary and red berries. The riserva wine is fruit heavy and great value.

Cantina Gattavecchi is a wonderful restaurant located in a 13th century monastery. The food and wine are excellent. But even better are the owners: Daniela and her brothers. We ate lunch and dinner here and enjoyed both immensely. We will definitely visit here again the next time we are in Montepulciano.

We had a large number of Salumi e Formaggi plates during our trip and hands-down this was the best one. It contained a large number of meats including wild boar sausage plus cheese aged different lengths of time. The served slices of bread drizzled with olive oil. The meats were the highest quality. It is worth visiting here just to... More

We lunched/dined here 5 times in our week in Montepulciano. On the first occasion we arrived at 2.30 after a long drive and were very hungry. We had the most delicious ribollita and mixed antipasto of cured meats and cheese - delicious. We returned for dinner on 3 of the next 4 nights and enjoyed delicious antipasti, pasta and meat...

We found this place randomly. I'm a wheelchair user so I couldn't go beyond the ground floor, where there is one table set up in the shop. In all honesty, it didn't look promising, but we were too tired to go anywhere else, and they had let me use their bathroom, so I felt kind of obligated to stay. But... More

Loved the food here. Not inexpensive, but you get HUGE portions, especially on the appetizers. I ate there with my husband, and the platter we got as a started could easily have fed 4 people. The wait staff was friendly, and there were several tables of locals (or Italians, anyway) which is always a good sign. Parking in their little... More

A unique opportunity to taste our wines and olive oil paired with local specialities prepared by Lilian's kitchen. Tasting of our wines paired with traditional Montepulciano cuisine in the striking refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria dei Servi (AD1200) and on the terrace overlooking San Biagio and the Val, d'Orcia. Reservations recommended.
