You should definitely go to La Grotta for fine dining in Montepulciano. This is a most pleasant restaurant with excellent cooking and courteous professional service. It’s the perfect place to enjoy the splendid Vino Nobile wines with your lunch or dinner. Seasonal ingredients feature truffles, porcini mushrooms, and game. We like them for their delicate hand made pasta and the chef who cooks the best rack of lamb for the main course. Delicious deserts, too. Some people think this is too posh or costly, but we find it very comfortable and perhaps only little higher than prices at your usually trattoria. And the quality of food at La Grotta is superb making this an excellent choice for a special meal. I recommend the 6 course tasting menu at only 53 euros, with 2 people minimum order.
The 2 vaulted dining rooms are spacious and tables are placed far apart to allow for easy movement and privacy. They also have outside dining in a lovely garden setting, recently expanded. This can be a wonderfully romantic place in the evenings with candle light. Be sure to make a reservation for the outside tables. Easy parking in front. Last visit in May 2017. Closed on Wednesdays. Next to the San Biagio church that was designed by Sangallo, below the town on the west side. Tel: (+39) 0578 757 479 or
