A lovely family run restaurant - relatively inexpensive and child friendly. Menu in English as well as Italian and an English speaking owner who made us feel at home. The view from the balcony of Montepulciano at sunset was stunning. The food and wine complemented the experience perfectly. I would thoroughly recommend it - particularly as we were able to book online. Seafood was delicious and fresh despite it being a Sunday. The garlic bread pizza was the best I've had and the mixed grill of meats made it hard to hold back the wine.

You should visit this place. After stops in Rome, Positano and Florence we had had a number of great meals but Il Covo was one of the very best. We had the eggplant pie (essentially the best variation of eggplant parm you'll ever have), a simple salad which was fine, the picci - which is a thick spaghetti - and Tuscan meat sauce, and a pizza with salami. Everything was amazing. Also, the house wine was great.

We liked it very much while staying next to Montepulchiano. Stuff was really professional and friendly, very fresh seafood and nice view to the city. Ordered several plates to taste and all were best quality. Served really fast and desserts...... Our highest recommendations!

Say hello to Max when you visit Il Covo. This charming restaurant offers a wide variety of Tuscan specialties and excellent Tuscan wine. The terrace is large enough that you don't feel crowded but cozy enough for a fete a fete.
We ordered the appetizer platter for two and were astonished at the number and quality of the items. Fortunately, no one rushed us into the next course so we had time to savour our wine. Seafood pasta and wild boar pappardelle rounded out the meal ... No room for desert!
All in all, a delightful experience at a reasonable price. Sunset was free
