We had a lunch in this beautiful place - absolutely amazing! You can't find a better location, right on the main piazza! The food was delicious and not expensive. Definitely recommended!

A real Tuscan experience, reasonably priced, great location and tasty dishes with local wine. Every component of each dish is expertly seasoned. Lunch or diner at this small, but busy ristorante overlooking the beautifull Piazza Grande of this stunning village, makes you dream about....

Probably our best meal in Montepulciano. This is a small place, so reserve ahead even for first seating, as it fills up fast. Excellent selection of local Tuscan dishes, recommend the wild boar over the local pici pasta.

The Quattro Vente was recommended by our Hotel and we were thrilled with our experience. We had confusion with our reservation but they were so sorry and made room for us as soon as possible. The meal was very good with local pasta or meat dishes. Outdoor seating is available but it was too cool for us to sit outside.... More

My husband and I spent six days here and we kept finding our way back to this restaurant. The food was consistently delicious, the service was excellent and it was in a great location on the piazza. We especially enjoyed our waitress who always offered excellent recommendations. A fun group of people run the place and we will miss them.

We were about ready to give up searching for the 'perfect' restaurant on Montepulciano after a long day when we decided to climb tot he very top of the town and happened upon a small, cozy restaurant with a line of people waiting to get in. We thought this was a good sign, and so we stood around for a... More

In the middle of the plaza. Good options for a light lunch and decent options on the menu. They struggled a bit with service (they were busy), but the food was good. Maybe no the best pizza in the region, but the pasta/lasagna was very nice
