The woman doesn't speak English- and that's ok! Everything you ask for is completely authentic, AMA omg, and beautiful! Get the house red wine- it's divine! I came back twice because I loved it so much!!

The servers were very friendly even with their broken English. I had a glass of Brunello sipping it while watching people go up to the main square. This is not a fancy place but it's a nicely situated bar.

We discovered this place while staying in Montepulciano for 6 nights and it was the perfect place for lunch and a glass of wine. We ended up going 3 times! It is not fancy, but the pizza and soup were delicious. It was a nice break from our more formal dinners and pasta and meat. The pizza is very crispy, but we like it that way, and the ingredients were very fresh. Soup was very hearty and had lots of vegetables in it. Service was always good and it seems like locals frequent here. They have a couple of tables outside that we were lucky to be able to get and have a glass of wine or beer at with our food.

This is not a fancy restaurant. This is not a fancy bar. We actually were waiting to get a table at a big name place next door and needed a place to sit for 20 minutes.

That said, the server promptly greeted us, brought us a bruschetta without us asking for it, and had our drinks ready pronto. There was only a single employee and she hustled. She had our second round ready as soon as I gazed back at the bar.

As we were treated so nicely, we walked in and looked around and it had all the goodies. Pizza, meats, etc all fresh. The appetizers we had were great.

Highly recommended for smaller meal and snacks.

Excellent! We have been back 3 times now. Sylvia, the proprietor, really knows food! We like high-end dinners but usually take a simple lunch. This place is perfect. Forget what you think you know about Pizza and watch this lady prepare everything from scratch. This sets the high-water mark for light lunches in Italy.
