I came here again and the quality is still the top, the view absolutely amazing and the decor inside has been improved. Relaxing with a good drink or food on the garden was just " wooow".

This little gem was hidden away at the start of the village and we literally stumbled across it. The service was amazing and the coffee was even better! Worth going to the village just for this place!

As you enter Montepulciano you see what looks like a kiosk on the right - it's a little cafe with indoor and terraced seating. Food was fresh that day and tends to be less hot than it could be...just ask them to make it hotter....More

Visited Monticciello on the way to Pienza. Lovely hillside village with a museum and outdoor artwork on display. Found this restaurant where they served a nice selection of food and quality local wines by the glass. Must mention the gelato - particularly good.

Be sure to visit this little cafe when you visit Montichiello, because the view on the valley is very beautiful. Simple food, very good quality, they serve mostly salads, wine, coffee and delicious ice-cream. The staff was very friendly (Federico).
