We have lunched here a couple of times, but not in high season. Excellent typical Tuscan food, and very well priced for being in the Piazza Grande. I would recommend it for lunch if you are in the vicinity.

The food here was spectacular. Try the riboletta-the local vegetable soup over bread. I also swooned over the tagliolini with truffles. Divine, as is the Pici with black pepper. A lot of Americans in here, but don’t let that dissuade you. Fabulous food.

Service was good and the atmosphere is very casual and not crowded. The tagliatelle with sausage was cooked well and flavorful, but the pomodoro pici lacked fresh flavor - kind of reminded me of a canned red sauce. The cut of the steak was very...More

Got to watch into the kitchen all through dinner. Heavy use of microwave. Not fresh pasta. Cold ribolita seared. Cacio a Pepe was pici pasta solidified in a 1/2 cm of melted tasteless cheese.

We got a table late in the evening and we're amazed by the speed, the friendliness and the taste. So all in all perfect. Prices are a bit high, but I guess the level is the same in whole Montepulciano.

We enjoyed a light lunch here sitting outside and enjoying the normal activity of the piazza at lunchtime. The lasagne was one of the best my husband had ever had. Easy to spend time here relaxing over a meal and drink.
