“A little restaurant with a big heart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

It's a one woman show - the owner (?), a very friendly lady with a beautiful smile - runs nonstop, taking orders, bringing the drinks, cutlery, food, cleaning the tables. She has time for every customer and offers good suggestion for the wines, which are as you are in Tuscany, splendid. Two three guys and girls run the kitchen producing excellent, tasty food.
I highly recommend.

“EXCELLENT MENU AND SERVICE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

Located on the Corso, this family-run restaurant features seafood, but also has a broad menu of regional specialties. The chef prides himself on the quality of his food, its preparation and presentation. A few outside picnic-style seats. Colorful decor inside. A favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. Well worth a visit for lunch or dinner.

“Fabulous dining and wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

I had dinner at La Pentolaccia while traveling with my sister, who has been attending a language school in Montepulciano. La Pentolaccia is known to everyone who goes to school there and everyone gives it two thumbs up. The outside seating is very popular because the restaurant is on the main street/hill through town and people watching is at a premium.
I have some food allergies, but it was no problem as everything is made fresh to order. Montepulciano is not on the coast, but the seafood is excellent and fresh. We had starters of octopus salad and squid salad. I had the sea bass with potatoes and tomatoes, she had the pork with prune stuffing. The portions are large so bring a big appetite. We shared a panda cotta with fresh berries for dessert. Fabulous!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Ate here before a concert in the Plaza Grande. We were going to eat in the restaurant next door, but it was full - I'm glad it was - La Pentolaccia was excellent, with lovely food with service to match.
