We were there on a cool night in March; definitely coat weather. We were warmly welcomed; ordered pasta and a nice bottle of wine. Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful. This is a very unpretentious place in a pretty location up near the big square.

We had a lunch in this beautiful place - absolutely amazing! You can't find a better location, right on the main piazza! The food was delicious and not expensive. Definitely recommended!

A real Tuscan experience, reasonably priced, great location and tasty dishes with local wine. Every component of each dish is expertly seasoned. Lunch or diner at this small, but busy ristorante overlooking the beautifull Piazza Grande of this stunning village, makes you dream about....

Probably our best meal in Montepulciano. This is a small place, so reserve ahead even for first seating, as it fills up fast. Excellent selection of local Tuscan dishes, recommend the wild boar over the local pici pasta.

The Quattro Vente was recommended by our Hotel and we were thrilled with our experience. We had confusion with our reservation but they were so sorry and made room for us as soon as possible. The meal was very good with local pasta or meat dishes. Outdoor seating is available but it was too cool for us to sit outside.... More

My husband and I spent six days here and we kept finding our way back to this restaurant. The food was consistently delicious, the service was excellent and it was in a great location on the piazza. We especially enjoyed our waitress who always offered excellent recommendations. A fun group of people run the place and we will miss them.
