Nice place to stop and chill for while. The coffe was good and we ordered a small selection of biscuits as well. The cafe has a long tradition having been created by Ferruccio Biondi Santi, the inventor of Brunelleschi wines. The cafe is located in the main square, there are plenty of outside tables to enjoy the sunshine and the... More

I guess this place can't fail to succeed because of its excellent position at the very heart of the town. Attractive historical building and a great place to watch the world go by. We enjoyed coffees, cocktails and snacks. Staff can be slow and disinterested.

While visiting Montalcino, our group got separated and agreed to meet here because of its location on the square. As soon as I requested a table I wished we had chosen somewhere else - ANYWHERE else. The staff was purposefully brusque and rude from the minute we arrived until we left. Having traveled about Tuscany for the better part of... More

We stopped I fly for a quick lunch and had the Ham sandwich and the two pieces of pizza. The Pizza sauce was tasty but it had a hard crust and overall it was less than average. Service was nothing special. This place looks like a very interesting place to have wine but we were not there for that. There... More

This Cafe is said to be one of Italy's oldest, having been set-up by the creators of Brunello, the Biondi-Santi family. As it is in Piazza Popolo it attracts a lot of tourists, but it is still quite charming. The wine selection is obviously good, even by the glass. With our wines we had a plate of wild boar cold...

This was our second time spending a Good Friday night in Montalcino and we chose this cafe again just as in 2013. The man working was all alone and he was so friendly and set us up at a table in the back. When the processional came through town around 10pm all the stores turn their lights and music down...

This cafe is very well located and we have been here many times on visits spanning over 20 years. It has an amazing wine list (see later in review) and serves good coffee, upmarket snacks and all the rest you would expect from a classy Italian cafe. So why a score that may seem low? Well we find the place... More
