We had the privilege of dining at Ristorante La Grotta for one excellent meal. Although everything was lovely, I think the highlight for us was the dessert! If you're staying in Montepulciano, this restaurant is a must. But I might advise against walking. La Grotta is at the very bottom of the town and we had a LONG and rather... More

Me and my parents went here on the second to last day of our Holiday in Monte. If you are prepared to splash out a bit then this is surely the best dining experience in the area. We had the set menu of around 6 courses, the highlight for me was the pigeon ravioli which was simply out of this... More

This is a very good restaurant. Everything is done professionally and with great attention to detail. The food is excellent. The ravioli with ricotta and basil was a standout, the lamb and beef both beautifully cooked and the marscapone with coffee ice cream was among the best desserts we have ever eaten. We liked the decor which was full of... More

My wife and I ate at la grotta our second night in Tuscany based on a recommendation of our local host. We had the 6 course wine and tasting menu which was outstanding. The service, food, and wine were all a 5 star experience. If you are staying in southern Tuscany do not miss a meal at la grotta.

Beautiful setting, great atmosphere, delicious food, excellent wine, reasonable prices, attentive service, and family owned with obvious pride. We loved it. To top it off,to get to the restaurant we walked about half a mile down the lane from Relais San Bruno and on the way back after dinner we were treated to a spectacular night sky.
