Osteria del Borgo
* Active from May 30th 2020 following all strict rules for the anti-Covid protocol.
Our Family Restaurant
Osteria del Borgo was born in 2006 from an idea of Mom Nadia, after 13 years of experience in our previous family restaurant.
Her sons Giacomo and Francesco, the current Sommellers of the restaurant and Dad Adriano, the handyman, soon joined her.
Located in the splendid setting of Piazza Grande in the heart of Montepulciano, the Osteria is located on a historic building from years 1270s A.D. , with two internal rooms, one on the ground floor with entrance from Piazza Grande, the other underground with an original barrel vault of pre-Renaissance era. In the summer, the Panoramic Terrace is also available, from which you can enjoy a unique view of the Valdorcia hills and the San Biagio temple.
The menu follows the Tuscan tradition, with handmade pasta and 'zero kilometer' quality ingredients. A 'land cuisine' in which there is no shortage of Florentine steak and great braised meat, game but also vegetarian options. The wine list, curated by Giacomo and Francesco, offers around 600 labels from all over Europe, with particular focus for the products that have made Tuscany famous in the world: from the Chianti Classico, to the Supertuscans, to the Bolgheri Doc up to the Brunello di Montalcino and obviously, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The service is informal but professional, our priority is to make you feel at home.
We are looking forward to meet you!
Nadia, Adriano, Giacomo, Francesco and the Staff.
