Avoid the tourist traps in the city walls and drive down to La Grotta to get an authentic and elegant meal. Each dish was very unique and delicious. We especially loved the lamb chops. Prepare for a long meal - enjoy every second of it!

This was the one of the best dining experiences we had during our stay in Montepulciano. The staff was attentive and friendly, and the food was memorable. The restaurant has an understated elegance, but isn't too stiff and formal. This is a must if you...More

This is a tricky one! Parking only outside the old wall. We were pretty lucky catching a parking lot directly at P1 which is right at the entrance to the old city. I would recommend to come early enough to enjoy some time in... More
