We were referred to this restaurant by Cinzia at the wonderful Locanda di San Francesco. Her recommendation did not disappoint. We walked down to the restaurant from town. The walk down was fine. The walk up a little more challenging, but then again, we had a wonderful meal to burn off. We were warmly greeted by our host and shown to a quiet table for two in the back. The restaurant is elegantly appointed, with soft lighting and warm colors -- perfect for a romantic dinner. There is an outdoor terrace, but the evening was a little chilly and the terrace was closed; a pity, but understandable. Without going into great details, every single course was delicious. Our waiter was perfect and the timing impeccable. We never felt rushed, but never had to look for our waiter either. A particularly fantastic dish was the tagliatelle with shaved white truffle (See photo below). Have you ever seen so much truffle on a plate? We drank a wonderful Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Poderi Sanguineto I e II, Riserva 2009, for those who are interested in such things) and finished the evening with a delightful dessert. This was an expensive meal, but not outrageous, and a great value. I highly recommend it.

This is a restaurant with history, family owned and run for 50 years.
The food is delicious, consistent, and beautifully presented.
Perfect service and ambiance. If you go in warm weather, ask for the garden.

Everything about this meal was out of this world. Service: over the top friendly, you feel like family. Food: some of the best we had our whole trip, I savored every single bite. We walked from town and the views on the walk were breathtaking. Looking forward to returning to Montepulciano, just to eat at La Grotta. Make your reservations well in advance. Such a special meal and memories my husband and I will treasure forever.

We visited La Grotta on the recommendation of our hotel for lunch. It was one of the best meals we had on our entire trip and reasonably priced. The location is a little remote and we were late to our reservations due to a road closure. Driving through the city to find the restaurant had my boyfriend and I a little on edge by the time we got there. Once we did arrive, we were seated promptly. The food was just amazing!!! If you are in the area, make a stop!
