While visiting Montalcino for a Brunello wine tour, we heard about Il Pozzo from a local resident. It's a short drive from Montalcino but definitely worth it. The pasta is terrific. Be sure to try the pici, a local hand-made pasta. Ours was simply prepared with bread crumbs, olive oil and garlic. It was simply awesome. We also loved a... More

When in Montalcino, the land of amazing Brunello, you must visit the restaurant Il Pozzo. The food is amazing and authentic Italian!

We had a wonderful meal from start to finish. The antipasto featured local meats and cheeses that paired well with a Rosso from Le Ripi. The homemade pasta was the star, whether served with pecorino or truffles. We shared a huge steak which was cooked perfectly. The restaurant is at the top of the hill which made it a little... More

One of our best meals during our trip to Italy. Great service & wonderful local wine selection. I don't eat pork, which is popular throughout Tuscany, so this was one of the best menus for me.

The staff are very friendly and the fare is very good. This was the first restaurant we ate in Tuscany and ten days later it's still up there with the best.

We visited the Trattoria Il Pozzo for lunch one day while touring around Montalcino. The town square was quiet on the day we visited, but the restaurants ringing the plaza were populated with a light crowd for lunch. We were seated immediately at a table for 4 outside, and enjoyed a nice traditional Italian meal. Some of the prices seemed... More

Prices too high for a trattoria like that. Maybe they are used to deal with tourists! I dont advice to go there unless you are a typical tourist!

Fantastic place to tuck in for Florentine steak and wild boar stew! The wine is naturally all from withing a few miles away. The boar stew was crazy good! The place was completely packed on a Tuesday night with locals and tourists. Well worth the trip.

Being so close to Montalcino, it's an easy trip out to visit this great restaurant in the quiet village of Sant'Angelo in Colle. Park in the car park at the bottom of the hill (there can be spaces up the hill but the road is tight and parking rules ambiguous, we have ended up with a parking ticket). All the... More

Home cooked pasta was delicious but our group's favourite was the veal in brunello sauce. They have good selection of wine and a quaint/nice atmosphere. Great place to eat for couples and families as well.
