We liked the decor which was full of... More

This is easily the best restaurant we visited in Montepulciano Sienna or Florence. Service Super Food Outstanding. Lovely Location. Menu to suit most palates. Wine list to accommodate most tastes and pockets this was not only the best food we had but easily the the best value.

My wife and I ate at la grotta our second night in Tuscany based on a recommendation of our local host. We had the 6 course wine and tasting menu which was outstanding. The service, food, and wine were all a 5 star experience. If you are staying in southern Tuscany do not miss a meal at la grotta.

Beautiful setting, great atmosphere, delicious food, excellent wine, reasonable prices, attentive service, and family owned with obvious pride. We loved it. To top it off,to get to the restaurant we walked about half a mile down the lane from Relais San Bruno and on the way back after dinner we were treated to a spectacular night sky.

You can definitely eat for less money in Montpulciano but if you are willing to spend it, they are there with good food and service. The restaurant is down the hill from the town with plenty of parking. Wine only by the bottle, no pichet or carafes.
