Our hotel owner highly recommended this restaurant --it didn't disappoint! It is located at the bottom of the hill from the main square adjacent to the church: Tempio di San Biagi. The ravioli was incredible and I was finally able to try the traditional Tuscan...More

Went for lunch yesterday and had a table out in the garden terrace. The food was fantastic. To start two of us had the Ravioli stuffed with Guinea-fowl and saffron sauce which were excellent. One pappardelle with rabbit sauce which also was excellent and my...More

Exclusive restaurant with very delicious antipasti and a fiorentina steak that melts on the tongue, great nobile wines to accompany and an espresso to round it of, we will be back soon

Whenever we visit Montepulciano or Pienza, one of the highlights of our trip is to spend an evening at La Grotta. Sitting at a table in the beautiful rear garden with some good friends, working our way through the five course tasting menu is a...More

Our party of four recently had dinner at Ristorante La Grotta, and could not have been more pleased. Each dish was perfection. Perfect pasta, tender Florentine steak. Excellent wine list and attentive staff. Highly recommended. (Put on your fat pants and live a little!)

We ate here on our last night, whilst staying at Relais San Bruno, as it was recommended by them and it didn't disappoint. The food and service were excellent and it had a lovely atmosphere. It's right opposite the very picturesque church of San Biagio....More

Good option, in retrospect we should have taken the tasting menu as the portions are not complete. Friendly service, very professional (the maitre checked the first bottle of the wine i ordered and he didn't like its smell, so he brought another bottle). Very good...More

This is a tricky one! Parking only outside the old wall. We were pretty lucky catching a parking lot directly at P1 which is right at the entrance to the old city. I would recommend to come early enough to enjoy some time in... More
