There's a bit of a debate going on in Italy as to what is the best steak you can eat. In Montepulciano there were several restaurants offering the famous Chianina T-bone alla Fiorentina. You buy according to 3-5 Euros per 100g. If you ask for medium, the searing heat will not quite penetrate to the centre, which will be quite rare. Dry-aging means it won't be bloody though. L'Altro Cantuccio served it on a heated tray for which I was grateful, as it took some time to get through. It was faultless, as was the attentive but not fussy service. We couldn't get into another overbooked, high-end place that night, but were delighted at every aspect of our evening.

We ate here with no high expectations but it was by far the best meal that we had in Tuscany. We loved the pigeon cooked 4 ways and the Pienza cheesecake was excellent. The service was unobtrusive but very prompt and we were agreeably surprised by the bill which was much the same as some very average food we had eaten on other nights. We had failed to get into the restaurant of our choice but I think we landed lucky.

Hello,

We were here, on a chilly night ro eat something and we had a veritable fine dining experience.
The place is intimate, cozy and relaxing. The food is great, the wines are great and the service excellent. They even have a special way of introducing the food. :)

Enjoy!

A thoroughly enjoyable dinner and experience. The food was excellent; my wife had a pulled pork-stuffed pasta and I had the salt cod with a tomato/olive sauce. Presentation was thoughtful and attractive. The staff hustles, but doesn’t hover. Reservations are a must; we saw a lot of people turned away without them. We suggest that you ask to be seated outside, on the stairs. Quite an experience! We would definitely come back.

We spent one night in Montepulciano and came late 21.30 in the old town so after 2 restaurants did not want to serve dinner to us we finally get dinner in this restaurant. Menu is a very strange and food is not good. Some of our friends are satisfied (not so much) with food. Service is quite good and people are very kind.
