We had delicious dinner and enjoyed friendly chat with Andrea, the owner of La Briciola. Try Fiorentina Biefstuk and house wine. Thanks again!

We ate there tonight. Got pici with ragout, ribollita, and ordered fiorentina steak. Waiter said,that it will be one kilo- costs of 40 euro. When he came with steak,could anybody see,that it wasnt 1 kilo! Such a disappointment. And another joke- roastet potatoes ( sidedish) was from freedge!

In the past 12 years I've bene often in Montepulciano for work but I never ate here before .... I totally regret it! The atmosphere is very nice inside, the restaurant is located in a little side street along the main trail. Being the last day of the year for lunch I decided to have only one course, fantastic tagliata... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

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!... More

All for 40 euro, luch for 2, including local red wine and one water. Nice service, summer table outside... More

We had two dinners at this small and cozy restaurant. Service very polite and professional, food was exceptional and something we will remember. Gnocchi with balsamic was delicious and chocolate mousse unforgettable. Very nice choice of wines. Absolutely recommended.
