Montepulciano: Ristorante Cittino

Vicolo Via Nuova, 2 , Phone: 00252820527

Reviewed by: jgk from FL, review #2051

When: 2006

Homestyle traditional Tuscan fare. Best homemade pici and wonderful sausage with roasted potatoes. All pastas with any sauce are E6; all secondi E7. Value!

This seemed like our most "authentic" dining experience. We walked up the stairs on a Sunday afternoon, to find a TV on and many Italian families, most with 3 generations present. The pici was so wonderful, each strand a slightly different thickness so you can tell it is homemade. The pomodoro sauce was light and delicious while the ragu was quite hearty. The salsicce had two different kinds on the plate with the potatoes strewn with fresh rosemary. With 2 glasses of house red wine our check for 4 came to 40 Euro--quite a bargain!
