The attraction here is the owner who will greet you, introduce you to other diners, and sing opera to you. Had a nice meal too. Tried to go back the next evening but sadly they were closed.

Degli Archi was recommended by our B&b host. We were exhausted , as we had arrived in Rome that morning and had driven up to Montepulciano. We were immediately re-energized after being greeted by the owner/host and shown to our table. We chatted with him for a bit, and after telling him we had traveled from California, he ended up...

We had a wonderful lunch here, we shared the food and it was more than enough for the two of us. We started with a Pizza with white sauce it was by far the best pizza we have had since arriving in Italy. Next we had gnocchi, served in a Black truffle sauce, it was Fantastico!! Best gnocchi I have... More

We had a fantastic meal here. Pier was the quintessential Italian host, the mushroom and truffle pasta was the best we've ever had. The tiramisu was also top notch. A real highlight of our time in Tuscany.

This restaurant has tables inside with a view or outside under a cosy middle-ages arch. We both had great meals (ravioli and boar for me). Food is locally source and includes vegan and gluten free options. The host, Pier, is very friendly, speaks five languages (maybe more!), and a bit of a Pavarotti. Ask him to sing for you!

We went there thanks to Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Stylish place with good wine and awesome food (try the tagliata with truffle!) The owner Pier (the Pavarotti of Montepulciano) is a good singer with lots of stories to tell !

We had tried this restaurant, after being seated at another restaurant and being completely ignored for 45 minutes, yes we got up and left. We walked into Degli Archi, without a reservation and couldn't have been more welcomed, the owner immediately sat us down and gave us our menus and proceeded to tell us about his restaurant. The service was... More

Lovely restaurant packed with charm and oddments. We found it by chance when looking for somewhere out of the rain, the welcome was warm and the food delicious, good portion sizes and reasonably priced.

We turned up for lunch, a party of 23 (kids and adults) and were seated in the outside archway area immediately despite the fact that the kitchen was closing in half an hour. This area is in itself an interesting place to sit. Pier is so friendly, he even sung a Tom Jones song in Italian to us because we... More
