I have the chance to travel to Montepulciano quite often and this little restaurant is always one of my "must". The place is quite small and very "family like".The menu changes every day, maybe it does not offer the choice of bigger places in the...More

This is like nothing else we saw in Montepulciano (or indeed anywhere else) and is worth a visit if you want real local home cooking and family style service. It isn't a normal restaurant. The dining room of Cittino is in the middle of a...More

What a lovely surprise this place was. Really! We walked in and had just arrived after a long day of travel just wanting something to eat. Really was surprised at the food. Very good food. Don't let the quaint atmosphere fool you. Really enjoyable.

A lucky lunch-time find; delicious, freshly-cooked pasta. Friendly, genuine, unpretentious. Simple surroundings, very basic decor, limited choices, just mother-and-daughter (it appeared) doing everything from cooking and serving to washing up by hand. A most enjoyable little meal at a very modest price.
