We had lunch at La Grotta during our wine tour with Cortona Wine Tours. I had the best pasta that I had in Italy there, although the bistecca surely tempted me too. We sat out in the lovely garden area, overlooking the ancient church next...More

We had lunch before visiting the church next door. The restaurant is outside the city walls at the base of the hill. Parking is easy, especially compared to parking within Montepulciano. Our food was very tasty and was served in a reasonable timeframe. The menu...More

We had a late and heavy lunch at La Canonica Castiglione Del Bosco and was still quite full when we went to La Grotta. However the food was much better than what we had for lunch. A must order is the raw shrimp with pasta...More

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

The courtyard is a beautiful place to sit. You are surrounded by people who want something more than the usual Tuscan dishes. But... although the food is good, it’s not great and the portions are really small, in particular the pricey polpo which was very...More

The location of the restaurant is amazing, in a small town next to a beautiful cathedral. The food was great! The local wine was very special. The service was great as well. My favorite was the pasta with raw shrimps! A must try! I love...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

We keep trying to like this place, but it just doesn't please our taste buds. It is a lovely setting, and the service is excellent, but we could only find one thing on the menu to order. The steak was excellent, but that was it....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
