Food might be good but the lack of kindness and sensibility of the staff makes this place a remarkable example of rudeness! Avoid it if you are looking for a friendly atmosphere and if you believe in human kindness!!

A combination of great, excellent food, a wine cellar that is second to none, impeccable and friendly service in a lush garden = definitely the No 1 choice in Montepulciano!

This is a very good restaurant, charming knowledgable staff, good atmosphere, garden, consistently good food, great selection of wines by the glass and not expensive for the quality. Steak is steak, but theirs is the best I've ever eaten, fabulous pasta and the mascarpone mousse with coffee ice cream whilst simple is utterly, lusciously wonderful. I want to live next... More

We spent a week in Montepulciano and visited a number of restaurants in the town. La Grotta is a bit pricier than most other restaurants in Montepulciano, but well worth the money. Very high quality food and service. If you visit during the warmer part of the year, I can really recommend to book a table in the garden as... More

My wife and I had one of the best dinners here during our trip to Tuscany. I had the tasting menu paired with wine and my wife had pasta as well as stealing food from me. Only regret we didn't go back for a second visit. But we will return next trip to Montepluciano.

We managed to get a Monday night booking for a party of 3. The restaurant is very appealing, spacious with tables separated thruout a couple of different rooms. The wait staff were friendly and prompt to take orders and deliver drinks to the table. The bread brought to the table was a little dry and without oil not very appealing.... More

We were here again after couple of years and again, the food and service was simple the best. Well, a bit pricey, but quality has its price... Highly recommended!

Over the years we have visited here many times and it gets better all the time. We had the tasting menu served by the attentive staff. The weather was perfect to allow eating in the garden area. Not a cheap meal out but you get what you pay for- a fine dining restaurant. Excellent wine selection as well.
