    Lovely atmosphere with tables outside in the old town, amazing food, traditional with some innovative bits. Loved it.

    The pictures and description of the restaurant and food quality was way over exaggerated. Disappointing evening.

    One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Everything was perfect, from the food to the bill, passing through a great service. The staff are all young, nice and super prepared, attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommended!

    A beautiful place... especially outside. The atmosphere is perfect especially for a romantic evening. A little bit pricy but money well spent for one evening or lunch. Quality of food very good!

    Amazing meal as the service was perfect, food presentation was superb and atmosphere relaxing. We thoroughly loved our dinner here and most impressed as stumbled upon this place from wine tasting just across the road. Keep up the good work. The prices were very modest considering the food and service delivered at this restaurant. Staff extremely polite and professional, we would highly recommend this place if you are in town and no doubt be back again!

    Great food! My husband and I shared the bistecca fiorentina. The meal was great right from the bread to the desserts. Amazing service. They have interesting decor too!

    Bright upscale scene with friendly efficient service, great food and excellent wine list. The food is creatively prepared and presented with interesting flavor combinations. The charcuterie board was impressive with excellent cheeses and sides, the octopus was done to perfection, the picci pasta was excellent, and the pea pasta with codfish milk and truffled caviar was excellent. Amfinally the steak was do e to perfection. We would go again for sure.

    Get ready for the weirdest atmosphere paired with excellent food. Modern Italian with decor that feels like what someone thought of modern dining circa 2001. But, staff was attentive and friendly. Food was excellent and creative.

    We were able to make a reservation that afternoon. The setting and ambiance was romantic and relaxing. The food was FANTASTIC and service was wonderful. Our server took time to speak with us and explain different dishes. We had a great wine pairing. We will definitely visit again upon our return to Montepulciano!

    The food was very interesting and good quality. My one comment on the food is that it was not presented with enough sauce in the case of the duck and the veal. While I appreciate that you do not wish to drown the dishes, in both cases, your website shows a larger and more decorative use of sauce. Also, it took asking three times for the bill, and my husband finally gave up and went in to pay because it never came.

    Cool little restaurant. Neat take on some classic dishes. Was a bit more experimental than my wife and I were expecting, but the food was good and the experience was fun.

    Food was terrible. The quality of the ingredients was excellent but the cooking was a fail. Over cooked Fiorentine steak and served on a sizzling hotplate. This is just lack of basic understanding of how to cook a steak to the correct doneness. Chef tries to be too clever and creative with the food, and makes food worse than it’s traditional counterpart. To make things worse, the food is overpriced, especially the appetisers and primi courses.

    The pick pasta, typical of the area, with ragu, was excellent. The Valrhona praline dessert was smooth, creamy and rich with an excellent texture. Combined with mango purée and rum ice cream, it was the best dish of the meal. They serve a large selection of wines by the glass, using the coravin system, so they can suggest different wines to suit each dish.

    Fabulous. All of it: food, presentation, atmosphere, style, service. Gorgeous, imaginative, comfortable. The pigeon & ravioli was the best taste experience I've had in several years. Not overpriced. Benissimo! Bravo!

    Nice upscale restaurant. Very attractive space. Food was excellent. Started with cheese salami plate. We both had the beef filet which was cooked perfectly. A couple of glasses of Brunello and a Licorice Grappa to finish it off. Service was very nice. Only slight complaint was the wine pour seemed light. Overall would highly recommend.

    This was the most creative food, and the best wine pairing, I have had in a very long time. The setting is beautiful and atmospheric, within an ancient cellar, and the food was nothing short of genius: the amuse bouche set the tone - an extraordinary invention with a fake cherry tomato created from a blended and seasoned essence of tomato, and how the fake outer skin was created I still do not know. We then had the tasting menu and the pecorino brûlée was unbelievable, as was the Chablis it was paired with. I will not spoil the surprises by revealing the whole meal, but if you are in Montepulciano you have to eat at this place. Book ahead to avoid disappointment. Now one of my favourite restaurants in the world!

    Terrible service plus mediocre food and wine (especially for a restaurant in Tuscany).

    Hello Gilbert, since he also wasted time writing to us 2 reviews I copy my response to the review here too: of all that he wrote in the review, the only sentence with which I agree with her is this "I won't personally be visiting again", I hope you do not come back, in our restaurant we do not want arrogant customers, it became ridiculous during her anniversary dinner in front of all the other guests, she quarreled with her wife, who even started crying, she treated our waiter badly because she didn't like the wine she ordered. Honestly, I am very happy that he will never come back. Greetings Mattia

    We had a fabulous Christmas Eve meal with our family of 6 in Montepulciano on Christmas Eve. They placed us right next to the fire and we had a fabulous meal. We even met a very nice family sitting next to us in the restaurant. The waiter was very attentive and our evening was just perfect.
