So glad we chose this restaurant from the many in the old town of Montepulianco. Five of us had a long late lunch, all of us choosing something different from the menu. All the dishes were excellent. It was a great experience and very reasonably...More

I was standing there, outside the restaurant, reading the menu, when the owner basically kidnapped me and ushered me into his restaurant. I had been waiting for my wife and friends to find and join me but I was now prisoner of the owner. His...More

An eclectically furnished restaurant with exuberant and larger than life owner. Loads of character everywhere, lacking on people as this is still May so quieter than deserved. Our food was very good - asparagus with risotto excellent - although our mains were a little low...More
