“Great Tuscan food”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

We had a wonderful meal at La Bricola. As previous posts have said the menu is only in Italian but we loved the experience of working out what to have. We had wonderful pasta with amazing sauces. Don't miss dessert, and go with your waiters recommendations. They also have an extensive wine list showcasing Montepulciano wine, even people who don't drink red will love it! We had excellent service from our waiter (also a sommelier) who recognised us from a wine tasting evening the night before. Definitely worth a visit for dinner.

“Restaurant where locals go”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

We were in four and all of us had something different as main course and finished off with Panna-Cotta made i two different ways. The PICI, local Pasta(hand-rolled spaghetti is very good. The meat which is also from the local valley(Val di Chiana) also very good. The wine was very good. No wonder Montepulciano is a wine growing community. All the tables were occupied except ours as we had a reservation. Yes I would recommend as it is also easy to find.

“Great pasta”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

We went to this restaurant for lunch when first entering Montepulciano. This is a truly authentic Italian restaurant, with homemade pasta made to order. The pici with ragu was unbelievable and worth going for! The menu is all Italian and not geared at tourists, however the service is amazing and willing to help with the translation. Worth the visit if you are visiting Montepulciano.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Excellent food, wine recommendations and friendliest service we've found in Italy. Father and son owners made us feel so welcome. Everything we ordered was perfectly seasoned and cooked.

“We must have visited on a bad day!”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I have read many of the reviews of this restaurant and wonder if I was in the wrong place! We found it completely lacking in atmosphere, pretentious in the extreme with the whole wine performance and the meal itself was not anything like we had expected. We actually made a joke that my husbands chicken meal was really a budgie! Small and dry! My pasta was dull. Sorry but not for us. Much better food within a stones throw.
