A friend recommended we have lunch here and it was worth the 1.5hr trip. Be sure the book and go hungry- we stupidly ordered pasta each and then the two of us shared a 1.2kg steak (minimum size!). It was delicious, just like we'd been...More

Enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the wine!! We had the pici pasta with tomato sauce, the steak (of course) and some local pecorino cheese with honey and walnuts for a starter. Glad we made a reservation. Would love to return!

We visited this place right at the opening as we didn't have a reservation. We got a place (table shared with others) and ordered a steak which was the best steak we've ever had. House wine was also very good. Best place to have a...More

Finding a place that prepares Bistecca alla Fiorentina in Tuscany and many surrounding areas is not difficult at all. That is precisely what makes Acquacheta so special: this is probably the best Bistecca you can get and the ambiance of the place is really particular....More

From the family style tables, to the carafe of wine, to the bowl of pici and finally the steak, everything was great. We had a great time eating, drinking, talking to our new friends at the table. It was a local establishment that should not...More

This was quite a noisy restaurant where you share the table with others. You only get one drinking glass each if you order wine by the glass and water, while an extra glass is only provided if you order wine by the bottle. We saw...More

This warm and friendly restaurant is a "must" dining experience. It serves huge Florentine steaks, brought to the table for inspection before being perfectly cooked and served sliced to share. The appetizers, including the melted pecorino cheese with truffles, the burrata and the pici pasta,...More

If you are in Montepulciano and are also a carnivore, this is the place for you. The restaurant is small, noisy and very busy, don't go for a romantic dinner. However it goes to create a fantastic atmosphere in a very authentic restaurant. The steaks...More

I would say depends if you speak italian? The owner speaks good english but the staff not as much. Our host where we were staying phoned and made a booking for us 2 days ahead.

The Osteria ACQUACHETA, open for over 25 years, has retained the characteristics of the old Tuscan taverns. The kitchen, sharing tables, one glass for water and wine, and not least an authentic welcome and true, typically Tuscan, make it a local flavor ... you feel at home ...
Managers, CHIARA and GIULIO, have maintained intact over the years the tradition of pasta, bread, cakes and homemade preserves to which are added succulent steaks cooked Florentine embers of wood.
Local, small and very popular, is located in the upper part of the old town, a few steps from the main square.
