Macelleria Belli

Meat lovers will adore Macelleria Belli in picture-perfect Torrita di Siena – its famous bistecca alla Fiorentina T-bone steak is exquisite.

Ristorante La Grotta

A brick ceiling presides over the interior of Ristorante La Grotta, in the village of San Biagio, a five-minute drive from Montepulciano. Revel in the guinea fowl and prune pappardelle, followed by pigeon cooked two ways. The wines focus on local labels.

Unwind at the decadent Caffè Poliziano in central Montepulciano – the ambience is a throwback to another era.
