Situated just off the Main Street in Montalcino. Nice little set up and friendly waiters and Matre De. I had wild Boar stew with polenta, but it was tough and lacked the flavour from being stewed with veggies etc. My guests had gnocchi with porcine...More

We were told there were no good pizza restaurants in Montalcino! This is patently untrue! When we found this place at lunchtime it was totally full and we had to return at 1-30. We were warmly welcomed and it was no problem to accommodate our...More

Had lunch here. We shared a pizza and the il grifo pici dish. The pizza was very good -- nice and light, very fresh. The pici dish was the highlight, however. It was a spicy anchovy pici, and very delicious. Great heat and not too...More
