Restaurants in Montalcino

Caffe Alle Logge di Piazza  


Pause for castagnaccio.

Its outside loggia offers sheltered outside tables while inside the back room has a lovely view of rolling Tuscan hills and Brunello vineyards. Great for a quick breakfast of cappuccino and castagnaccio, a flat chestnut flour pizza with raisins, pine nuts, walnuts, and rosemary. Light lunch of soups (€7) or sandwiches, plus Brunello or other wines by the glass. Young locals pile in for an aperitivo and spill out into the street before they disperse for dinner. — Judy Edelhoff

Il Giglio  


Get out the Brunello...

The family-run bustle and home cooking attracts locals and tourists in this bastion of Brunello. Homemade pastas, grilled meats are always available. The hearty food buttressed by good selection of Rosso di Montalcino and Brunello wines. Service can be on the slow side, but that’s par for a small family place in a small town. The pace lacks urban dysfunction urban; it’s human. — Judy Edelhoff

Taverna Il Grappolo Blu  


Montalcino heartiness...

Cozy restaurant in terracotta dues serves stalwart Tuscan cuisine. Start with hearty peasant soups or pinci, (eggless pasta). Anchovies in pesto made with basil and parsley. Ravioli stuffed with fresh pecorino, mint, and potatoes had some zip. Guinea hen with lemon, butter and a dash of cognac. Wild boar in white wine and herb sauce is served with polenta, or try beef guanciale served in Brunello wine sauce. Even plain boiled fennel, carrots, and potatoes were fresh and flavorful. Try the crostata con crema di limone e pinoli, better than the usual cream filling. Order a different Brunello by the glass with each course (we had 1999 La Torre and Campogiovanni), or live it up with a bottle of 1993 Biondi Santi. If you prefer, friendly Luciano, a transplanted Roman, will steer you toward other wines, Italian or foreign. Good mix of locals and tourists. Main course range between €8 and 10. — Judy Edelhoff
