Simply excellent! Worth the price! Best meal we had in Italy!
Directions: Across the street from San Biagio.
We had been to La Grotta several years ago when we were in Montepulciano, and it was one of the restaurants we knew we wanted to return to. It was just as wonderful as we remembered. The setting is so beautiful, and the waiters are very professional and yet friendly. This is the perfect restaurant for a romantic meal or a special occasion. The food is not like what you'll eat in the other local restaurants.
I had the pecorino souffle and the pici with ragu. My husband had the frittata (which didn't look like one but was excellent) and the lamb (which he raved about for days). We shared some kind of wonderful dessert too. With a nice bottle of wine, dinner was 100 euros.
The one thing that surprised me this time was when a family was seated near to us with a small dog. I wasn't shocked to see a dog in a restaurant, because I've seen them in European restaurants before. But this dog started barking loudly, and it really was annoying to the people there. The family made a small attempt to stop the dog, but they also thought it was very cute and kept laughing each time she'd start up again. I was surprised that the staff of the restaurant didn't do anything. It just didn't fit at all with the ambiance of this fine restaurant. Perhaps the family was in some way related to the owners or staff members.
