We ate here three times - every meal was exceptional - many traditional Italian dishes, beautifully cooked and presented, and some more unusual ones. Favourites included sea bass rolled in a cabbage leaf with tomato and clam sauce, chicken with almonds, beef with rocket salad and Parmesan, tagliatelle with smoked salmon and asparagus. Best of all though was the turbot... More

We absolutely loved La Pentolaccia. We were in Montepulciano for 3 nights and ate here twice. We sat outside (make a reservation to make sure you have a table as the place is rather small) and enjoyed several antipasti dishes, bruschetta, fresh Caprese salad, and pecorino salad with apple and bacon and their best was the special with zucchini, pecorino...

We had our agriturismo host make a reservation for La Pentolaccia on our last night in Montepulciano. Had lots of food and wine and was very reasonable price.

Our driver who was from Montepulciano recommended La Pentolaccia. After making reservations (advised) , we were treated like family. The chef does a great job in presenting the dishes. The food was fantastic, and it was an incredible value for what we ate and drank. I would have coume back again if it wasn't our last night there.

I am fussy about fish being prepared just right, and so was disappointed in the overcooked and tasteless salmon. It was recommended to me by a local, so could have been just a bad night. I like the owners and the effort they put in to making the dishes special, just didn't like the fish.

Very small - holds about 20 people and specializes in fish. We waited 3 days to get a spot and the food was delicious.

Food was good, excellent service and moderately price!In MONTEPULCIANO , YES,!! Zuppa de Legumbres was nice, I had the pork... More
