We were referred here by a wine shop in Montepulciano. Family run and very friendly and warm. Food is not great quality for the price. Much better food quality elsewhere around the area. They did have a wine cellar where we were allowed to look at all of the Etruscan wine jars and an Etruscan mask. Don't bother eating here!

Their pasta with ragu was fantastic. There is also a small store within the restaurant to purchase wine, biscotti....

Tasty, but overpriced food, snobby atmosphere. For instance , a glass of Prosecco is not available, only if you by a bottle. So many good alternatives in the neighbourhood !

We had a dinner in this place just because it was on the road. I couldn't understand at the begin if it was a restaurant or a shop for where tourists could find very commercial and expensive stuff. At the end we had a sit in the restaurant, we had a fiorentina steak with a bottle of 20 euro wine... More

Although the location looks nice, the food is below average and the service is bad. Personnel serves dishes, of which in our case one was the wrong order and the other was cold. Drinks are very expensive.

We decided to eat here as it was close to our hotel and we didn't want to drive into town. You enter the restaurant through an area which sells wine, olive oils, meats and cheeses etc which was a little strange, however this then opened up into an enormous restaurant area with enough tables to seat two coach loads! There... More

Yes it is a bit touristy but we've been lucky to go at a non busy time and this restaurant is really family-run by people who care about what they do and the products they make. It doesn't matter if you have to walk across the shop of products made in their farm before being seated, it just means that... More

We should have known better than coming into this place. It was the only restaurant easily accessible, and we were eating out of desperation rather than enjoyment. Not only the worst food eaten in Italy, but possibly the worst food served in a restaurant, period. The saffron pasta was inedible, the garlic pici was a solid mediocre... Wine was drinkable...
